Question about Dishwashers
I need to pull out my Miele Diamante dishwasher to seal off where ants are entering the house. The dishwasher came with the house and I do not have an owners manual. The only model identification I could find, by lying on the floor with a flashlight, is 04904740. How do I safely remove and replace the dishwasher?
There are two places that a dishwasher is normally fixed to the counter/cabinets.
1.) When you open the door fully and look under the counter top where the top of the open dishwasher meets the bottom of the counter top, there are likely two brackets connected to the dishwasher and screwed up into the bottom of the counter top. Removing those screws is the first step. If the dishwasher can be swiveled out a few inches, you are almost done. If it still does not move:
2.) Many dishwashers are also secured to the cabinets through the left and right edges of the DW door edge. Look for screws sunk into the door jam and remove them.
Before you pull the dishwasher out, recommend that you remove the lower panel (kick plate) so you can see what is going on as you slide the dishwasher out slowly. Lifting with your hands inside the top of the dishwasher is better than pulling on the dishwasher door.
Hope that helps. When I pull a dishwasher to clean and seal, I also at a mouse "disc" (not a mouse trap), plus an anti-ant and roach gel thingy. See you hardware store for something that lasts quite a long time.

Tips for a great answer:
You need to wipe the seal down with vinegar. Mold needs water to grow. Have you looked at the bottom of the dishwasher after a cycle to see if you have standing water? While you are looking clean the filter.
