I think its great that you upgraded to a newer washer to get the dishes nice and clean. I am adding a link below to help you with your project while you wait for your expert response.

Thank you! We are in the process of trying to remove the water supply line from the dedicated dishwasher stop, but it has been difficult. Hubby went to Lowes to get a vice grip. That old dishwasher must be at least 20 years old, as old as the house.

One thing that may help you is reading the installation manual for this model. You can view it at the following link: Installation Guide .

First locate and turn off the power to the dishwasher. This may be a wall switch in the kitchen or on the breaker box.

Open the door and you should see two mounting brackets being held by two screws into the cabinet. If you have granite cabinets then the screws holding the dishwasher may be on the side of the unit.

You can remove the lower access plate to access the water valve, drain hose and electrical line. Once these are disconnected then unit can be pulled out from under the cabinet.

You can reply with any additional details or questions for further assistance.

Thank you Fred. We have been able to install the dishwasher and it is working fine now. HOWEVER....since we have done that, one or 2 of the water lines have started to leak underneath the sink. We've used pipe thread and it doesn't seem to work...any suggestions short of calling the plumber?

A:

If the fitting is copper then there may be a kink. You might check out the home supply store for a new flexible water line. If the leak started after the installation make sure the nuts are tight.

It is not copper....and we have tightened the nuts on all lines, but still leaks...may need to get new water lines and nuts. Thanks, Fred!
