Dishwasher installation blues
 
I installed my dishwasher the other week and there is a gap from the top of the dishwasher to the counter top. It isn't noticeable unless your a little kid but you can see the insulation. Anyone have any solutions to my problem? I know that I can raise the feet but then it seems to tilt, any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Lex,
no rear feet on the unit? Normally you have to adjust the front feet to raise it up. If yours doesn't raise in the back, You could cut some shim material to set under the rear supports. Make the thickness the same as the amount you have to raise the front to get rid of the gap.

whirlpool family dishwashers only have wheels on the back and levelers on the front, but those wheels also have 3 different heights by removing the wheel and putting it in the next screw hole, but you may have to shim it with thins boards. Theres nothing worse than a tilting dishwasher.
