I agree with Daniel, you need to unscrew the adjustment legs on your dishwasher to raise it up higher.

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.

Miele makes a G600 series that are 32 1/4 " tall - that would probably be your best bet.

How much breathing space does a refrigerator need NONE, 1/2 inch or 1 inch above the top of the cabinet for air circulation. Sears has told me all 3. WHICH IS CORRECT?


For airflow it would be the back that needs clearance of a couple inches. Top of unit shouldn't matter. Inside the fridge itself if you plan on packing it as full as possible except for the amount space needed to allow airflow,. I would just atleast leave 1 inch on every side. But outside of fridge just leave clearance in back and front. Google manual and it will tell you

Which dishwashers are less than 830mm high, to fit under my work surface?


Peter,
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!

What are the dimensions on a Kenmore 363.14192992 dishwasher?


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.

Dishwasher slides when both top and bottom trays are out at the same time


Hi,

Please clarify if the dishwasher is tilting forward when both the trays are out.

If so there are ways to install the machine so that it will not tilt. If your dishwasher is installed under the kitchen bench and there is a gap on top, the machine will tilt from the weight of dishes once the trays are rolled out.

The legs are adjustable, therefore, free the hoses and power cord. Pull the machine out so that you can untwist the legs to a height suitable to minimise the gap. Just leave enough space to allow you to push the machine back in with ease. You can always pack in cardboard or phoam later when machine is in.
If after legs are heightened and you still have a big gap, the you need to get to pieces of timber cut on either top edge to fill the gap.
There are specialty brackets (e.g. L-shaped brackets) which you can buy and screw into the cabinet walls to hold machine in.
Some machines have holes on the side or top to allow you to screw in from the wall of machine into the cabinet. However, I do not believe Electrolux models have this.
Let me know if I have misunderstood your problem.

Hello Mkoffice, this a very common problem when floors are installed in front of cabinets and not underthe cabinets. it also causes a problem for the dishwasher. it will become trapped or cant be installed.If you dont want to removed cabinets to install the tile. you will need to raise the cabinet height. my shop has run into this before. We add 1 inch tall strips of wood across the entire front edge of the cabinets. the same is done to the back wall and any area where two cabinets sides meet. we dont use full sheet of ply wood because the granite installers will need access into the top of the cabinets to level the counters. The wood type should match the cabinet.( at least in the front) it will have to be stained or painted.
Hope this helps
