Question about GE 24 in. GSD4000J Built-in Dishwasher
The incoming hot water can be hooked up independently. The thing you should consider is the drain line. The drain hose and the pump are (obviously) below the tub of the dishwasher (DW). If you route the drain hose through the floor directly, the water in the tub will siphon out. You'll need to route the drain hose to keep this from happening. The way to do that is to route it in such a way that it forms an almost upside down "J", then down through the island. The upper portion of the "J" should be about the same height as the top of the DW.
Also consider the electrical hook up. The proper way to wire it is through a SPST switch (like a light switch) so you can turn power off in an emergency or a servicer can kill power without having to locate the breaker. Some contractors "hard wire" the DW's in (with or without a SPST switch)... others mount a wall outlet so you can plug and unplug the DW if necessary. Either way is OK, only mentioned it so you'll know how your contractor will be doing it.
Just some things to consider. Good luck with the renovation and I hope you enjoy your new Kitchen.
