Whirlpool DU1055xtss doesn't fit cavity where old Whirlpool dishwasher exists
I bought the above dishwasher but the tech couldn't get it installed in the existing space because existing unit is 33-1/2" and new unit is 33-3/4". Is this really an insuperable problem? There was some talk of a "tall tub," are there short tubs? He suggested a Maytag. Is he yanking my lanyard?
I got my money refunded but still need a dishwasher without raisin the counter or lowering the floor. Tks in advance.

The space underneath the dishwasher, or cabinets, is referred to as the kick space. It is where your toes fit under the edge of a counter and they are typical of cabinets and dishwashers alike. You should not expect a wood trim piece to fit underneath the dishwasher and not all dishwashers will accommodate one. It is fair to say that all dishwashers will come complete with a trim piece to cover this area, since some have venting and others do not; some have a door that extends down further and some do not. Generally speaking the variation people concern themselves with is in dishwasher's width and not in the door configuration. So having said and in consideration of your (assumed) desire to retain the wood trim, I suggest you retool the wood trim piece to work/fit with the dishwasher you decide you want. This is what I did rather than use the provided black metal panel. I have attached photos.
the sprayer is clogged with ****. I had the exact same problem. my mother-in-law gave me of some 80 year old man that has fixed appliances all his life. Ten minuets after he got to the house it was fixed. cost $70.00. He just took a couple things apart dumped out the **** inside the parts and put it back together.
Hope this helps.
Connect directly to your existing drain lines under the sink or to your disposal unit.
If you do not have a dishwasher drain adapter on your drain lines the local home center will help you. Install above your S trap. Cut just enough of the pipe out to allow for the new part to slip in (half and inch or so goes into the fitting). You will need glue and primer.
If you connect to your disposal there is a fitting on the side of the disposal to accept the drain line. You should have a fitting supplied with the disposal. If not the local part supplier can help you. Break out the tap on the disposal and connect the fitting and drain line.

i have had that problem before and used a saws-al and cut the legs and what ever else i needed to get that puppy out.the question is will your new one fit?in my case most all i ever tried to install i got them in.and i have done a hundred or so
i wouldn't worry too much about shortening line, unless its extreme. ck fro possible restriction in line(possible kink ) or the sink down spout that is draining into. a d/w will ***** remove all the water after cycle is complete, its normal to have a small amount of water just below or above the filter plate
