My Asko dishwasher d3232xlfi has control buttons on the top of the door. How do I install my granite counter top? Do I cut it out so my fingers can easily use the controls?


Normally the controls can be set with the door open and upon closing the door activate the washer with the options that were chosen. Normally, you wouldn't see a cutout made for the washer controls. These are intended to be hidden when closed. Goo ... Asko D3232XLFI Dishwasher

I'm having my kitchen counter tops replaced with granite. I have a GE Model GSD700 dishwasher that is now attached to the existing counter top. The granite counter tops will not accept having a dishwasher attached. I need installation instructions for the dishwasher which do not include being attached to the counter top. [email protected]


You can attach a block of wood using silicone adhesive to hold it in place on the underside of the granite top. After the silicone has cured (usually 24 hrs) you can use the same mounting clips as before. Just be sure to use shorter screws than the ... Dishwashers

I purchased a whirlpool dishwasher GU2475xtvy2 with interior controls on top of the door. Might seem like a silly question, however, do I have to install with the door & controls controls out from under the countertop? or do I install with controls hidden, and make selections before closing door? Doesn't address this in the installation manual. Thanks

Delamination I'm installing KitchenAid KUDS03CT which has the venting out of the top of the door. The steam and heat are vented directly beneath the edge of the counter top. The counter top is a preformed laminate over high density particle board. Will this cause swelling of the particle board and delamination of the laminate?

Hi, we are trying to install our new Bosch dishwasher model: SMU68M05AU. I am surprised to see packing foam and flimsy edging across the top edge that meets up to the stainless steel door edge when its closed. I can not find detailed installation instructions. Is there not a strip that goes across the top to meet the door as the top looks very ugly? The dishwasher door protrudes from the under bench cupboard space so the top part is in view and exposed.

The overflow air drain on top of the sink that is connected to two hoses under the sink is leaking. It leaks out the top onto the counter. I took it abart but am afriad I did not put it back together right. There is a rubber ring that I think must be for sealing and I put it directly on the counter and then screwed down the air valve over this and water s coming out of the air flow valve and all over the counter.
