How to install a dishwasher, and when to call an expert

If you’ve recently purchased or replaced your dishwasher, you may be asking yourself if it’s as simple as swapping them over and plugging it in or wondering whether you have to enlist the help of the professionals.

Replacing an existing dishwasher

If your dishes are coming out dirtier than before they went in, or your dishwasher has completely gone kaput, then congratulations on your decision to replace it! Replacing one dishwasher with another, in the same place, is a relatively simple task that with the help of a few trusty tools such as a spanner, you should have no issues doing it yourself.

As the space is already created, the power and drainage connected, it is a case of removing the old and then connecting the new one’s drain, tap inlet and power – then you’re good to go!

Installing a new dishwasher

If you’re wanting to install a brand new dishwasher for the very first time, congratulations!

This amazing appliance not only saves you time, it’s also a water saving way to wash up your dishes.

New installations are required to comply with rules and regulations in terms of power and drainage to ensure the install is safe and legal and if you’re not familiar with these rules you may will need to enlist the help of someone who is; a licensed plumber to install the plumbing and a licensed electrician for the power.

Hire the professionals when you install a dishwasher

Even when replacing a dishwasher, they require certain fixtures and fittings to ensure they run optimally and safely so whilst you may be able to do it yourself, it may be best to hire a plumber to get the job done! Not only this, but when installed incorrectly and not by the professionals, your warranty and insurance may not be covered if something were to go wrong such as a leak or a valve blowing.
