Mounting brackets for granite countertop

Whirlpool Dishwasher Model GU1200XTLQ0 purchased in 2003 mounted fine under a formica countertop, but I recently had a granite countertop installed and it cant be secured with the top brackets. Are there updated brackets for mounting this model under a granite countertop?

    I have a Kenmore model 665.15639000 (made by Whirlpool) that has been installed since approximately 2003. It was installed by Sears when we remodeled our Kitchen and included granite countertops. Yesterday when opening the door it almost tipped over as it appears the top-mount brackets were held in place by silicone or some 'cement'. That has just worked its way loose. Looking for best 'fix'. I understand that Kenmore makes a floor mounting bracket that attaches over the side frame and screws to floor.....looking for best option....floor bracket?, would GE sidemount brackets work?.....or just re-cement? If last option, what is used to do so?

This is the best way i have found. You must check this company out. Granite Grabbers www.GraniteGrabbers.com They are extremely simple mounting brackets secured with a very strong double sided adhesive. You do not have to drill you cabinets or deal with any expoy.

I have used them with excellent success, took 5 minutes to install

Yes - The top brackets cab be removed and attached to the side to attach the unit to the cabinets on either side. If this is not possible, expoxy a wood shim to the under side of the countertop, and screw the bracket in to the shim after the epoxy is dry.

Dishwasher was not installed but only slid under counter so now it topples over. I have no installation clips


Your dishwasher may have a "side mount" and you may be able to screw it into the sides of the cabinet, if not, you will need to find out how to attach the brackets to your dishwasher (they usually slip into a groove in the top of the dishwasher, bending the tab over once slipped in will prevent it from coming out again.) If the brackets are for another dishwasher, you will need to order the correct brackets for yours.

We are installing a dishwasher--have it hooked up but can't seem to get the leveling legs loose so we can adjust the height. Also, the anchoring peices of metal stick out farther than our countertop.


Hello, This dishwasher has the ability to be mounted to the cabinets on either side of the dishwasher.the mounting brackets can be moved to each side. If it must be mounted to the counter top, the mounting tabs can be bent by hand and it will break the front part of the mounting tab. This will shorten the mounting bracket. If you have granite counter tops do not attempt to drill into to the granite counter call a granite fabicator. The leveling feet are hexagon shaped at the top of the of the leveling leg. Remove the front lower toe kick panel. This will allow access to the top of the leveling legs,then use a small cresent wrench or a socket and rachet.Hope this helps.Joe Connolly

How I prevent the dishwasher from tipping? I have granite countertops so I will need to stabilize without clamping to counter?


Hello Mariebyrne, Solution 1: Call granite fabicator to mount dishwasher to granite top. 15 mins for them solution 2: Check sides of dishwasher for cabinet mounting (side mount). Open door to diswasher look at each side (in front of the door seal) about halfway down there will be some small round button looking plugs. If you see these plugs the mounting brackets need to be moved to the side position.the dishwasher will need to be pulled forward about 6 inches.after the brackets are moved position the dishwasher to where you want it. Remove plugs and screw in to cabinet. Replace plugs and your done. Hope this helps

You could have a handy person make some new brackets which attach to the new dishwasher's brackets with bolts but are made so that they line up with the existing worktop holes. You can probably use strips of soft metal with holes to fashion these.The dishwasher may have to sit slightly lower.

Need to stabilize machine and have granite countertops


Ask a local granite fabrication shop to get you some dishwasher mounting clips. They look like a perforated disc of metal with a small nut brazed to one side. They come with a short screw that attaches through your dishwasher mounting tabs. Place your dishwasher where you want it relative to the cabinets and pick a hole in the mounting tabs that won't leave the clip protruding and attach the clip to the chosen hole. Use masking tape on the top of your dishwasher door, wipe the bottom of the granite and the top of the clip with acetone, then use a gel-type two part epoxy from your local hardware store to attach the clip to the granite. Use enough to make the epoxy push through the perforations in the clip as this is how the epoxy grips the clip. Push the clip to the bottom of the granite and close the dishwasher door, using a wood shim or two between the top of the door and the mounting tab/clip to push the clip tight to the granite. Pull the shims out once the epoxy has cured (check the instructions on the epoxy).

Dishwasher tils when door is open because the bracket is roken


There is now a universal dishwasher bracket for just this problem called E-Z DISHWASHER BRACKET. It is available through Braxton-Bragg or ask for it at a local granite fabricator. It is very simple to use.

Need side mount brackets gpf65 because of granite counter top, model #ghda485n10cs ser# rm763786b, quietpower3 dishwasher


I don’t know your counter situation, usually you have to put dishwasher in a bottom cabinet and mount both side. Suppose you only have one side to mount, you have to go to home depot to buy a 90 degree metal mounting bar, mount the top part to your top granite support board, the bottom side mount to the dishwasher, it should be a ¾” plywood board underneath the granite, you can use ½” screw to mount it.

Hope this can help you,
