    Appliance Install Recommendation - Ankeny, IA

    Does anyone have any recommendation's on a licensed contractor for installing a dishwasher in a new construction home?

    The builder credited back money for Range/Microwave/Dishwasher and I got all those three (3) and a fridge for only a few hundred bucks more than gave back, and they were all upgraded appliances through Whirlpool Inside Pass.

    I can install all the other appliances but am leery on the Dishwasher with punching into the garbage disposal, etc. so looking for recommendations.

    TIA and Go Cyclones!

    Really not that difficult. Mine was a hard wire connection to the front, 2 screws into the bottom counter, and hook up the plastic hose using a slip over spring clamp. If you are even basically handy, its not bad.

    really not a big deal... it has a plastic plug that you can pop out (push from the outside to the inside, and with the power off reach down and grab the plus). connect the hose (keep a loop in it), and you are good.

    My guess is you might surprise yourself here.

    As everyone else said, do it yourself. Absolutely nothing to it.

    If you are really worried, youtube it.
