Question about Dishwashers

3 Answers

I'm having my kitchen counter tops replaced with granite. I have a GE Model GSD700 dishwasher that is now attached to the existing counter top. The granite counter tops will not accept having a dishwasher attached. I need installation instructions for the dishwasher which do not include being attached to the counter top. mawinings@comcast.net

You can attach a block of wood using silicone adhesive to hold it in place on the underside of the granite top. After the silicone has cured (usually 24 hrs) you can use the same mounting clips as before. Just be sure to use shorter screws than the thickness of the wood block.

• 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.

How do I mount Kenmore dishwasher model 65515779 to granite counter top?


Joanne,
You need a granite/stone counter-top mounting kit. It will be a metal strip that you can attach to your cabinets and allow you to screw some short screws up into that metal strip. I would think that most major home repair dealers would have something like that. Dishwasher Undercounter Mounting Kit W10426979 The Home Depot

If you are talking about a gap caused by the height of the stove, You can lower the height of the stove by adjusting the threaded leg posts on the bottom of the stove. A more difficult fix would be in raise the height of the countertop and cabinets by shimming the bottom of the cabinets.


If your gap is not a height issue, then you can experiment with some type of trim around the stove itself. Local granite dealers has an assortment of trims for issues like this.


I was able to find a number of trims for a back gap on my granite countertops and backsplash from my local European Marble and Granite.

I have a new GE Profile dishwasher and granite countertop. How do I attach it so it doesn't tip. I can't use the tabs at the top as the granite is right there. Any help?


Open door and look for removable hole cover along left and right side, several inches down from the top. Use a wood screw to secure the side of the dishwasher to the cabinets there, then replace the hole covers.

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.

Any granite fabrication shop should be able to send a couple workers out to cut the existing granite for your new downdraft.

Mounting my dishwasher to granite counter tops. Granite Grabbers last about a week before they loosen up


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).

Need side mount brackets gpf65 because of granite counter top, model #ghda485n10cs ser# rm763786b, quietpower3 dishwasher


I don’t know your counter situation, usually you have to put dishwasher in a bottom cabinet and mount both side. Suppose you only have one side to mount, you have to go to home depot to buy a 90 degree metal mounting bar, mount the top part to your top granite support board, the bottom side mount to the dishwasher, it should be a ¾” plywood board underneath the granite, you can use ½” screw to mount it.

Hope this can help you,
