Dishwasher questions


I am finishing my basement and have a dishwasher down there. I have two questions.

1. Is a switch required if it is not hard wired? I have an outlet and the dishwasher is plugged into it.

2. Do I need a countertop mounted air gap? I really don't want it showing.

Thanks, Abs

Not sure about a switch.
You can get by with out the air gap , by running the discharge hose up to the bottom of the sink then to the disposal.

I don't think it needs a switch as long as the proper size wire and connection is made. I would shoot the question over to the electrician's they will set you straight.

A cord and plug connected appliance does not need a switch disconnect.
