I know most dishwashers are 24 inches...but that isn't "tall"...the standard dishwasher fits under 34 inch cabinets and our cabinets are 2 inches shorter than stock cabinets. They were built that way for my 5 ft. tall grandmother...all the dishwashers we have looked at are too tall to fit under the cabinets...we need one that will fit under the 32 inch cabinets

830mm equals 32.68 inches. You will just have to look at the specs of any dishwasher that you are interested in and see if they will fit in less than that height. Most dishwashers that I have installed would fit between 32 and 34 inches in height. Hope this helps!
you don't fill the gap. There needs to be some clearance for the door to be able to swing open without contacting the underside of the counters. You can always decrease the gap a little by using the adjustable stands on the bottom of the unit. The unit will come with a kickplate that can adjust to multiple heights.
Dishwashers that are installed into standard kitchen cabinets have a standard width and depth of 60 cm (Europe) or 24 inches (US), and most dishwashers must be installed into a hole a minimum of 86 cm (Europe) or 34 inches (US) tall. Portable dishwashers exist in 45 and 60 cm (Europe) 18 and 24 inch (US) widths, with casters and attached countertops. Dishwashers may come in standard or tall tub designs; standard tub dishwashers have a service kickplate beneath the dishwasher door that allows for simpler maintenance and installation, but tall tub dishwashers have approximately 20% more capacity and better sound dampening from having a continuous front door.
The top of the cut out is 33 & 7/8" Min. to 34 & 7/8" Max (adjustable legs for height)
Minimum space to counter top parent material 1/4" (Top of dishwasher cabinet is screwed in at the top)
Depth 24 & 1/4 inch minimum
Width 24 & 1/4 inch minimum (Allows for 1/8" clearance on both sides)
Normally a standard base cabinet is 24 inches deep with a 25 inch countertop ( meaning the top extends over the front of the cabinet by 1 inch) That is a typical installtion however there is no right or wrong way to set the dishwasher into cavity between two cabinets. In most installations though the front door of the dishwasher when closed is close to flush with the vertical stiles of the cabinet and does not extend beyond the overhang of the counter. The manufactures method for securing it to the surrounding cabinets will dictate the extent that it can project out. Hope that helps...
