Dishwasher installation questions
I purchased a Bosch dishwasher and we are installing our kitchen cabinets this week. I was just looking through the Bosch installation manual and it says to allow 23 5/8" - 24 1/4 " width between the cabinets for the dishwasher. My KD had allowed for 25 1/4" and supplied side trim to make up for the gaps. Now I'm wondering if that was wrong. Should the cabinets on either side of the dishwasher be spaced closer together ( 24 1/4" instead of 25 1/4") ? We will be having plywood and granite on top of the cabinets. I believe the DW needs to be side mounted because we are having granite.
Second question: our electrician just put an outlet under the sink area for the dishwasher and disposer, so neither of them can be hardwired. Is that the correct way to do it?
Do we just order a plug adapter for both the DW and the garbage disposal, and they both plug in the same outlet?
