Dishes Piling Up? See the Average Cost to Install a Dishwasher

Americans bought more than seven million dishwashers in 2015, say the folks at Statista. As professionals, we hope all of those were installed by trained technicians.

Installing A Replacement Dishwasher

Here are the factors that will affect the average amount it will cost to install kitchen appliances such as a dishwasher.

Factors to Consider

New dishwashers can be wonderful work-savers. If you already have one, you know how effortless and enjoyable washing dishes can be with an automated mechanical marvel. Toss in a detergent pellet, set the controls and close the door. A short time later, your dishes are clean, germ-free and sparkling.

When the old machine breaks down, inconvenient as that is, at least you have all the pipes, wiring and space for a new unit. The professional installer will have little trouble removing the old unit and going through the connections to install a dishwasher.

If, though, you never had the luxury of a machine to wash dishes for you, installation becomes a bit more involved. You must pay for wiring to be run (this usually involves a dedicated circuit breaker added to your house panel), pipes to be installed, and, possibly, space to be carved out from your counter and cabinets. All of this adds to installation cost.

Should You Do it Yourself?

ACE Home Services - Cost to Install Dishwasher: Do-it-Yourself


At Ace Home Services we strongly recommend against amateurs installing their own dishwashers, for several reasons. Consider the risks of plumbing or wiring the new machine incorrectly.

  • A flooded kitchen and, if the kitchen is above another living area, flooded rooms below
  • An electrical short, which can cause a fire
  • Annoying knocking, bumping or chatter if the dishwasher is not properly anchored

Your homeowner’s insurance probably will not pay for your installation error. With fast, professional installation, you protect your investment in a new machine, plus you protect your home, your warranty and your family.
