Hence, the reason for the last sentence in my post.

"Again, this all depends on local and state codes and the EI."

Just for fun: So, a line needs to be run from DW to the GFCI outlet in the sink base. Even if they were side by side, you'd need to run NM, MC or something to the sink base and then convert to appropriate plug for the GFCI. More problems caused than solved IMO.

It depends on the AHJ. If I wired a dw or dispos-all, it would be GFCI breaker or outlet, with BX or armored as it should from the JB to the outlet, to the switch.

As for the GFCI, it should either be a breaker or if a outlet, installed in the sink base in a way that a person can access it without tearing stuff apart.

Kitchen appliances are not required to be GFI protected. Follow the link in my signature and verify what code your state has adopted. Otherwise, safe your money.
