had a double socket that old dishwasher just plugged into__installing new dishwasher that just has positive & negative wiring. How do I hook-up electricity to the new one?
Actually incorrect. Depending on the AHJ, you could be required to use a GFCI on the unit, or hard wire with Armored on a GFCI. Romax is something that I would not use on a dishwasher if hardwired.Turn the. Power off to dishwasher circuit. Remove outlet from box. Get a piece of 12/2 romex and bring into outlet box and bring into junction box on bottom right side of dishwasher. Connect black to black, white to white and ground to the green screw. Turn power on and wash some dishes
The GFI for the DW is a local thing? It is not in the NEC. It would also not meet the readily accessible requirement, if installed behind the unit, for GFIs that has been added in the 2011.Actually incorrect.

Would you rather have had me state not to use a GFCI and risk life.code man! whats code! thats all we care about when handing out advise, not personal opinions, or preferences.
Nothing was ever stated about installing a GFI behind a dw. All I stated is that a DW in my opinion should be on a GFI protected circuit.it would have been a violation to install a GFI behind the DW
