Dishwasher/cabinet height mismatch blues
I bought Thomasville cabinets and a GE Monogram panel ready dishwasher. Little did I know that they are not compatible.
I had the panel for the dishwasher made to GE's specifications, 30 1/16" to 30 1/4" high. The dishwasher door is 30" high, and they want me to leave a 1/2" gap between the top of the door and the bottom of the countertop.
That means that the bottom of the dishwasher door will be 30 1/2" down from the bottom of the countertop. But, the face frame of my Thomasville cabinets is only 30" high because there is a 4 1/2" high toe kick.
So, the bottom of the dishwasher panel is going to end up 1/2+" below the bottom of the surrounding cabinets.
