How to install a dishwasher

Dishwashers need a cold water supply, a connection to the waste water drain, and normal electric socket to plug into.

The cold water supply pipe will usually be about 1.5cm wide and made of copper. It will have a little screw fitting on the end with a small lever which you use to turn the water on or off. The flexible hose from the dishwasher connects to this screw fitting on the end of the copper pipe.

The drain from the dishwasher is usually connected to a special spigot (sticky-outy bit) on the U-bend under your kitchen sink. The rubber connector on the end of the dishwasher drain hose just slots over this spigot to allow the water to drain into the same drainage pipes as the sink. If you are connecting the dishwasher yourself, and the spigot has not been used before, you’ll usually need to cut the end off it or unscrew a cap (which is there to stop the water from the sink splashing out if there is nothing connected to the spigot).

If you don’t have the right connections in place, or you have difficulty connecting the dishwasher yourself, book one of our plumbers to extend or adapt your pipework and install your dishwasher for you.
