Does a Dishwasher need it's own dedicated circuit?


Thanks Chris.. but i dont think i would atemp that myself.. As you can tell I am a bit green at this. Beside circut box is very hard to get too / just not worth it to me. Good thought though.

Thanks again for all the sound advice by the way!

Energy star dishwashers are supposed to use 41% less power
I looked up one it is rated at 9.1a
So, you can find one that uses under 10a
Many Mfg may still want a dedicated circuit
