dishwasher install question


I recently completed a house remodel and we moved in over the weekend.

We renovated the kitchen but kept all the old appliances.

I notice on dishwashers that there are clips on the front top that would appear to be used to attach to the under counter. When I pulled the machine out these were not used and when I reinstalled I also did not use them.

Now comes the obvious problem(didnt seem so obvious when I installed it) of the machine wanting to tip out when the drawers are open with dishes in them.

How would I attach the clips to the corian counter? I would imagine screws, maybe small tapcons?

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

The stove anti-tip brackets sound like a good idea!

You will also want to level your unit front to back while compensating for the clips.Otherwise drainage could be a problem

The dishwashers I have installed (all four of them) had the option to attach at the coutertop or on the sides into the adjacent cabinet. If drilling into corian sounds like a bad idea, then I suggest side mounting as an alternative. Does your manual not show this option?

There is no manual. I have yet to look online for it.

There does not seem to be anywhere for a side mount, though I didnt really investigate it.
