What kind of screw is this?


This screw is holding my dishwasher and I need to unscrew it, but I don't have any screwdriver that fits this.

What kind of screwdriver do I need to get to remove this?

Thanks very much y'all.

Looks like Torx. Look for drivers that are labled T10, T20 or similar. Can't tell what size it would be from picture.

YM, it’s called a "Torx Bit" and any hardware store will have them. There are a handful of sizes though.

+1

If you have a multi bit screwdriver, you can pick up the bits for cheap at any hardware store and make sure that you cover all your basis.
