Question about Dishwashers
I can not figure out how to install the manifold mounting bracket? Does it need adhesive or something?
SOURCE: need side mount brackets gpf65
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,

You think that liquid nails would be too permanent, so you're wondering if I can suggest an adhesive that would 1) not react adversely with the white paint on the glass panel 2) would not dissolve the black rubber-like adhesive (which has let go) that's between the glass panel and the small brackets, and 3) would be strong enough to hold the glass panel, which is where the DW handle/pull is located, and which is subject to stress caused by constant opening and closing.
Different adhesives are available in diferent parts of the country and they are all subject to proper instalation. So I'm going to sugest some guide lines. 1) You're going to have to do a little leg work. You're going to talk to different people in different hardware stores telling them about your three requirements. You'll be surprised at the varying degrees of knowledge. Don't argue, just take notes. 2) Once you've settled on a product it's time to test it. Find a small piece of glass and aply it to metal useing the adhesive. After drying you can tell if it is satisfactory. If not go back to no.1.
3) Once you're happy with the test find a pair of C-clamps and two blocks of wood. Aply adhesive, then using the wood blocks to protect the glass use the C-clamps on each side. Be carefull not to overtighten. Do this with the door horizontally. Just watch the adhesive, when it starts to squeeze out, stop. Make sure the clamps are aplyed evenly. Be carefull. Good luck.
