Well after looking around i found that i can pull it off but the dishwasher is going to be like a 1/4" below the granite countertop is this going to be a problem other than screwing the dishwasher top to the bottom of the granite.

Seeeeeeeeeeeee! What'd I tell ya?
The dishwasher also has adjustable legs/feet on the front that may still have some adjustment in them.

Cabinets are 34.5" tall, this means they're shimmed 1/2" over the subfloor. Or is there that 1/4" ply under the cabinets too? (shouldn't be, but check).

You can adjust those feet of the dishwasher. Heck you can remove them altogether. I have found you usually need about 34 3/8" for the washer, but they're not at the same. The tallest part is the front, often you can tilt it in. You don't need to tile under the DW, end it so the grill sits on the tiles. You can do a mockup away from the counter using a board to simulate the granite. Years ago there were machine that were not as tall, I think Bosch had some that were around 33". Not sure about now a days.

You don't haveta screw into the granite to stabilize the DW. You can screw the sides into the cabinets. That's what I did using 2 stainless screws with grommets.

HOLD ON FOR GADS SAKE !!!!

This would be less painful if you would slow down and listen and stop trying to jump ahead.

In more than thirty-five years of doing this stuff I have never-once had a dishwasher that couldn't be made to work.

You had better be emotionally and financially prepared to replace your granite counter tops if you try to move them and things don't go well for you. Something tells me things won't go well for you.

Hey by-the-way...
Are you personally intending to perform this work yourself or are you just investigating before you hire it done for you by someone else?

Why not remove what you can get to and leave the rest alone? You are making this way more difficult than it needs to be.
