Dishwasher under a sink drainer

Postby russellfl » Sun Nov 07, 2010 9:15 am


Can anyone tell me if it is ok to fit a dishwasher under a sink drainer? The electric socket is above the worktop and over a metre away from the sink bowl. The sink bowl will fit into a seperate carcase with the dishwasher next to it.. Any info will be a great help

"Can anyone tell me if it is ok to fit a dishwasher under a sink drainer?" YES - but if space is tight you may have problems with the clamp bolts under the drainer.

Yes it is ok - mine is like that you shouldn't have any problems - however it would be better if electrical socket was under the bench - if this is a new kitchen you're designing/installing.
