Thanks for letting me know. I double checked the part (GE wx09x70910) and it says the length is approx 5'.

I know I specifically asked about this part with my e. inspector and he said it was acceptable (see installation manual) below)




I have him coming back next week to check and approve my other project so I will ask him again. Do you know which NEC section references this code?

Thanks

Not exactly true Jim... That measurement only includes the distance from the face of the attachment cord to the plane of the rear of the appliance.

So you can easily add another two feet to get to the front of the dishwasher.

Thanks for all of the replies. I'll check with the local inspector, and go from there.

Interesting. Never thought of it that way.
