It sounds like you either replaced your floor or your counter tops/cabinets.

Your 2 options are to:

  1. Remove the flooring, (i.e. tile) to the toe kick of the cabinet allowing the dishwasher to drop in. I recommend reinstalling the legs on the dishwasher if you have the room after removing the flooring.
  2. Trimming the cabinet/counter top. This is assuming that you have room to trim.
  3. Shimming the counter top up to raise the countertop up 1/4" to 3/8".
I recommend having the legs on the dishwasher. This helps in leveling. Be sure to attach the dishwasher to the counter top. This will keep the dishwasher from moving.

My dishwasher was installed, then wood floors added and now the height is only 33 inches. How do I get the old one out and find a new dishwasher that is 33-33 1/4 inches tall?


Take a sawzall and cut the front legs, pull the dishwasher out until the back legs hit the new wood floor and then cut those legs from the sides. It's your old dishwasher anyway, so who cares if the legs are cut off?

Need to replace this unit ASAP and am having issue finding one that will fit. My R.O. is exactly 34". The existing unit shown was OK because of the 33 - 1/2. Recommendations?


all dish wahers are the same height
the differance your seeing is that
is has been adjusted to fit your cabinet height
with the adjustable legs
all units can be raised by srewing down the legs
and back levelers
make sure when you do your cabinet measurements you take this into account

Raising back legs on Ariston LL65SNA


The red nut driver plugs are located on the front of the dishwasher under the toe kick. The reason for this is that you need to slide the dishwasher in place before you raise the legs, otherwise you will probably bend or break the adjusting legs. You can raise the legs a little if you need to clear the water and power lines, but be careful when sliding the unit in. If you use a socket wrench with a long extension on the driver it will be much easier.

Need to remove wash module


You should be able to hold the spray arm and unscrew the center section to remove the entire assembly. Be aware of any washers or other parts that need to be re-installed when putting it back on.
