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,

Hi again,

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.

I have a granite counter top and cannot connect the top holding brackets.

A side mount installation kit is available for most dishwashers. Be sure to pre drill the holes in the cabinets to prevent splitting. Sometimes the top mount brackets can be removed and used on the sides, check the installation guide or manual.

How do I properly secure the dishwasher to the cabinets so it does not move when I'm unloading it?

The feet should be properly leveled and either secured from the top to the counter top using 1/2" screws or in the case of granite tops use side mount brackets and pre drill holes in the cabinets to prevent splitting. The side mount brackets usually come with the dishwasher but you might need to order a set. Here is a video on properly installing a dishwasher

• 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.

Hi Fairhill,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: It appears that the black rubber-like adhesive that is (was) between the glass panel and the small brackets (flanges) has let go. You don't need the metal brackets; you need the black adhesive to reapply the glass panel to the brackets. Can you help identify what the black adhesive is so that we can order it?

Any good adhesive will work. If you're never going to remove the glass panel then use liquiod nails allowing 24 hrs for drying time. If you might want to remove at a later date then any adhesive that remains plyable will work.

Feel free contact me again!
