Installing a new Dish Washer
ok installing a dishwasher from "scratch" is not an easy task no matter what anybody tells you. First you must decide what 24" cabinet you want to take out, usually that is the easiest part. After you remove your cabinet you will have to get hot water to it which will mean you have to tap into the hot water supply, install the necessary plumbing up to or close to your dishwasher. Then you must get electricity to it, then you have to get a drain from somewhere. So if you are allowed to do all this work yourself (local and state codes) you have to decide if you are handy enough to do all this work. I would strongly advise finding a handyman type person who can pull all the necessary permits and do all the work himself. But you may end up hiring a contractor who will in turn sub out all the work after he removes your cabinet for you. I would estimate a job like this at about $500.00 - $ 600.00. I've done more than my share of jobs like this from start to finish, it ain't easy.
