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 have a Bosch SHE45M06UC/50 in an island with a granite countertop. It is not attached and so moves. How do we attach it to the granite countertop? Or how do we attach it????


You glue on a wood strip, to the underside of the counter, then screw into that. Use construction adhesive. The wood strip needs to stick down no further than the counter edge treatment, so you normally cannot see this wood strip.

How do you side mount a bracket in the LG dishwasher? The model number is LDF6920ST. We have a granite countertop, so we are trying to mount the bracket inside the dishwasher as the manual indicated. ...


There is a hole on each side of the dishwasher about 6" down from the top and in-front of the rubber door seal, with round plastic covers in them. Just pop those covers out and the side mounting brackets align with those holes and the screws go into the wood frame. You may have to put some small blocks of wood on the wood frame to take up some of the space between the side of the dishwasher and the cabinet frame. Be sure to drill pilot holes for the screws to avoid splitting the wood.

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).

• Purchase and install the GPF65 side-mount
bracket kit if the underside of counter is granite
or a similar material that will not accept wood
screws. The GPF65 kit is available from authorized
GE appliance dealers.

Also note that any stainless steel tub models would be able to accomadate granite tops without a kit, and I beleive all Profile GE models come with the kit included.
