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,

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

Dishwasher was not installed but only slid under counter so now it topples over. I have no installation clips


Your dishwasher may have a "side mount" and you may be able to screw it into the sides of the cabinet, if not, you will need to find out how to attach the brackets to your dishwasher (they usually slip into a groove in the top of the dishwasher, bending the tab over once slipped in will prevent it from coming out again.) If the brackets are for another dishwasher, you will need to order the correct brackets for yours.

We are installing a dishwasher--have it hooked up but can't seem to get the leveling legs loose so we can adjust the height. Also, the anchoring peices of metal stick out farther than our countertop.


Hello, This dishwasher has the ability to be mounted to the cabinets on either side of the dishwasher.the mounting brackets can be moved to each side. If it must be mounted to the counter top, the mounting tabs can be bent by hand and it will break the front part of the mounting tab. This will shorten the mounting bracket. If you have granite counter tops do not attempt to drill into to the granite counter call a granite fabicator. The leveling feet are hexagon shaped at the top of the of the leveling leg. Remove the front lower toe kick panel. This will allow access to the top of the leveling legs,then use a small cresent wrench or a socket and rachet.Hope this helps.Joe Connolly

How I prevent the dishwasher from tipping? I have granite countertops so I will need to stabilize without clamping to counter?


Hello Mariebyrne, Solution 1: Call granite fabicator to mount dishwasher to granite top. 15 mins for them solution 2: Check sides of dishwasher for cabinet mounting (side mount). Open door to diswasher look at each side (in front of the door seal) about halfway down there will be some small round button looking plugs. If you see these plugs the mounting brackets need to be moved to the side position.the dishwasher will need to be pulled forward about 6 inches.after the brackets are moved position the dishwasher to where you want it. Remove plugs and screw in to cabinet. Replace plugs and your done. Hope this helps

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.

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...



• 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.

Dishwasher tils when door is open because the bracket is roken


There is now a universal dishwasher bracket for just this problem called E-Z DISHWASHER BRACKET. It is available through Braxton-Bragg or ask for it at a local granite fabricator. It is very simple to use.
