Question about Dishwashers
Granite needs to be color matched epoxied together at the seams. If they are sitting level and flush (and Solid) a home owner solution is to use matching silicone filling the seem then cleaning off with a good solvent. tape the top on both sides before starting. The second solution works to keep out food, but may not look great if they are not flush or have not been cut cleanly and the gap is not too wide. You will need suction cup turn buckles to pull them tight. Do not do any of the above if you are not comfortable with your skill level or feel it may damage your top. Granite can be stained using the wrong products.

the under counter inserts, made from plastic moldings(standard for dishwashers) are one approach. Having a custom frame built,and installed, is strongest long term solution. And all the better if it's a sliding type, for ease of service, which you WILL need sooner or later.
I'd call a local carpenter, and show them your issue, and get this done properly.
the granite will not do well, when it's penetrated at more than 25 to 40% of it's depth.

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.

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).

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.
