The average cost to install a dishwasher is $200 with most homeowners spending between $185 and $225 for just the labor.
However, your installation may require modifications to plumbing, wiring, or countertops which could raise your cost up to $485, depending on what needs to be done.
Can you add a dishwasher to a kitchen?
Dishwashers can be located away from the sink cabinet, but generally they need to be within a few feet so the sink plumbing can be used for the water supply and drain. A kitchen wall that is backed up by a bathroom vanity or a washing machine would work well as plumbing access for a dishwasher.
Where should the dishwasher go in the kitchen?
Dishwashers should be placed next to the kitchen sink – either on the right or left-hand side – as well as being close to storage units. It is also important to ensure that your dishwasher placement allows freedom of movement.
Can you put a freestanding dishwasher in a cupboard?
A built-in dishwasher fits beneath your counter top, flush to your kitchen cabinets. A freestanding dishwasher is finished on all sides and on the top, so you can place it anywhere in your kitchen.
