Professional Dishwasher Installation

If you’re upgrading an existing dishwasher or have purchased a brand new dishwasher as part of your kitchen renovations, installation is perhaps the most important step of the whole journey. You want it to be installed correctly so there are no shock disasters with water leaks or messy drainage.

Metropolitan Plumbing can help out with our dishwasher installation service. Our local plumber can ensure your new appliance also meets all the requirements regarding pressure valves, water connection outlets, extension hoses, power points and placement of new drains.

The Benefits of Installing a Dishwasher in Your Home

Tired of the mound of dirty dishes piling up in your kitchen sink? A new installation of a good dishwasher can be a game-changer for your household. Not only does it free up your time, but it can also wash dishes more efficiently than by hand. A good dishwasher uses less water and is energy efficient, reducing your monthly bills and carbon footprint. No more scrubbing or drying; simply load your dirty dishes and let the appliance work its magic. Embrace the convenience and modernity of having a top-notch dishwasher at home, and wave goodbye to the tedious task of hand washing.

Freestanding vs Semi Integrated Dishwasher

If you’ve been looking shopping around for a new dishwasher, you will have likely come across two different things – a vast range of dishwasher prices and appliance types as well. Two of the most common are freestanding dishwashers and semi-integrated dishwashers.

A freestanding dishwasher can be installed anywhere within your kitchen, as long as it is close enough to connect to your existing plumbing. You don’t need to install it in an existing cavity.

Semi integrated dishwashers are intended for installation within your kitchen cabinet work, with only a part of the front panel visible and accessible.

Why Do I Need a Plumber for Dishwasher Installation?

When your old dishwasher has given up or you’ve decided to finally make a luxury purchase, it’s not as simple as plugging in your dishwasher. Even if you have an existing water connection and the dishwasher fits within your existing cabinetry, it will need to be fitted and fastened correctly. The drain may need to be shifted so that your new dishwasher doesn’t overflow and cause flooding, too.

Dangerous mistakes are often made by DIY installers when connecting a new dishwasher to the power point, some resulting in serious injury. Combining electricity and water is always a potential hazard.

Say Goodbye to Your Old Dishwasher!

At Metropolitan Plumbing, we are experts at dishwasher installation. Whether you’ve opted for a semi-integrated dishwasher or a freestanding dishwasher model, we can even have your appliance installed by a plumber on the day you call. If you need any new electrical connection work to get your dishwasher working properly, including the relocation or installation of new electrical outlets, we may even get a licensed electrician in to manage the necessary processes.

Your licensed plumber can also run through a cycle of your new dishwasher before they leave to ensure no leaks, drips, or spills have occurred in the installation process.

FAQ – All You Want to Know About Dishwasher Installation

There's more to dishwasher installation than meets the eye. Here's all you need to know.

Dishwashers use both electricity and water, so do you need a plumber or electrician to install one? The most sensible tradesperson to call out to install your dishwasher would be a plumber. Your plumber is a master when it comes to water systems and is the obvious choice to fit a replacement dishwasher because the electrics are limited to plugging it in. Metropolitan has technicians who are licensed both for plumbing and electrical, so we can handle any power point installation or electrical work as well. The process may take between two or three hours in total.
A high-quality dishwasher shouldn’t have a limitation for how far it can be installed away from your sink. There are a few bonuses for installing it closest to existing plumbing, however. Firstly, your dishwasher installation cost will be less costly and easier as most of the pipes are already in place. The plumber will simply need to connect it up to your plumbing and it should be good to go. Installing it elsewhere will require your pipes and hoses to be strategically placed and hidden. Secondly, most people follow a “scrape, rinse and load” method when loading their dishwasher. This is most convenient when having your dishwasher installed next to the sink to minimise walking distance. An ideal location to install a dishwasher would likely be close to all your drawers and cabinets so you only need to take a step or two to put away your clean dishes.
Most dishwashers will last between 7-12 years, depending on the brand, maintenance, frequency of use and other factors. You should consider replacing your dishwasher when you start to notice the following things:
  • Rust
  • Water is not draining out after a wash
  • The door doesn’t lock
  • Dishes aren’t hot after a cycle
  • Cracks are forming
  • Starting to leak water
  • Dishes are spotty or not cleaned thoroughly
  • Making unusual noises
While you might consider repairing your dishwasher when you start to see these signs of age, replacement is likely a better solution. Repairs might give your existing dishwasher just a little boost of life, but you’ll be needing repairs again soon.
The majority of under-counter dishwashers measure 60 cm wide and 89 cm high. When gauging your opening, you need to measure from the inside edge of the opening. Do not measure any trim or decorative overlays. The space you leave for the dishwasher cabinet should be tight enough to provide a built-in appearance. It does not matter if your dishwasher cabinet is not flush with the surrounding cabinets. Always check your measurements before you buy a dishwasher. You may need to get in touch with a cabinet maker if you require alterations to your space.
