Installing a dishwasher at the end of the cabinet begins with preparing the panel of the dishwasher. Measure the size needed by the end dishwasher panel using a tape measure before purchasing the panel. Begin the installation by preparing a place for setting a new panel along the floor. Attach all brackets of the panel, and slide the dishwasher into the space.
- Prepare the panel
Measure the size needed by the end panel of the dishwasher using a tape measure. Cut the panel according to the measurement of the cabinet base. Obtain a wood panel that matches the existing cabinets from the nearest hardware store. Mark the panel to the appropriate size using a pencil and tape measure.
- Set the location
Sand the side and front of the panel using grit sandpaper. Paint the panel to match your cabinetry, and allow it to dry. Create a line where you want to position the new panel.
- Attach the brackets
Join two L brackets to the floor where you want to install a dishwasher. Space the two brackets two inches away from the back wall and attach them with a one inch screw using a power drill. Connect the opposite end of the L bracket to the panel using a power drill. Position the panel squarely against the wall with a space of 24 inches at the front of the opening. Attach the remaining brackets on top of the counter. Slide the dishwasher into place.
