Wiring a garbage disposal and dishwasher
How is this typically done? I am starting with a gutted kitchen, so I have all options available to me.
Option 1) Run two separate lines to each and hard wire them directly by running the wire right out of the wall to the appliance. Pro- Neat and staight-forward, wire goes directly to the appliance.
Option 2) Run 14/3 to an outlet under the sink. Break the tab, add plugs and cords to the appliances and plug 'em in. Pro- I think I need to use an outlet for the disposal because I want to purchase an air switch. I believe these need to be plugged into an outlet, then the disposal plugs into that. Con- Dishwasher will need a cord/plug accessory and a hole will need to be made in the sink cabinet to plug the DW in.
Option 3) Run two seperate lines, but only hard wire the DW. Put an outlet under the sink to plug in the disposal.
My goals are - Do it safely and within code, keep under-sink wiring to a minimum, be able to use an air switch for the disposal.
