Professional Dishwasher Installation

If you’re upgrading an existing dishwasher or have purchased a brand new dishwasher, 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 appliance meets all the requirements regarding pressure valves, water connection outlets, power sources and placement of new drains.

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 pluggingin your dishwasher. Even if you have an existing water connection, your new dishwasher 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 source, some resulting in serious injury. Combining electricity and water is always a potential hazard.

At Metropolitan Plumbing, we are experts at dishwasher installation. We can even have your dishwasher installed by a plumber on the day you call.

Your 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 is limited to plugging it in. Metropolitan has technicians who are licensed both for plumbing and electrical, so we can handle any powerpoint installation or electrical work as well.
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 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 dishwasher a little boost of life, but you’ll be needing repairs again soon.
The majority of under counter dishwashers measure 60cms wide and 89cms 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 should be tight enough to provide a built in appearance. It does not matter if your dishwasher is not flush with the surrounding cabinets. Always check your measurements before you buy a dishwasher.
