Installing built in dishwasher...
 
Please bare with me, I am extremely new to electrical wiring.

I'm going to be installing a built in dishwasher. Right behind where it is going, there is a dedicated outlet. I know portable dishwashers have standard plugs but I do not believe built in's do. Can I use the existing plug/wiring to do the job?

Also, I know dishwashers are generally on their own circuit, but is it feasible to have a microwave on the same circuit presuming they won't be ran at the same time?

I know some of the wording may not be precise, so like I said don't be too rough on me. Thanks :thumbup:

Install an "appliance pigtail" on the diswasher and plug it in.

The recep is supposed to be accessible but.......eh, it's already there.

Feasible and code compliant are sometimes different things.

I see where you're going in regards to the microwave.

Thanks, off to the hardware store!
