Do Plumbers Install Dishwashers?

April 6, 2022

We’ll get right to the point. Yes, we install dishwashers! If you recently purchased a dishwasher and don’t know how to install it, call the professionals at Eastern Plumbing – we can help!

What are the benefits to calling a plumber for your dishwasher installation?

It’s certainly easier to ask for a plumber’s help, than trying to figure it out on your own. Although DIY projects work for some, if you are not familiar with indoor plumbing this could be a project for the professionals at Eastern Plumbing.

Here are some reasons you should call a plumber:

  1. Improper installation could result in a much bigger problem. If the dishwasher isn’t installed correctly you could end up with leaks and ultimately with water damage.
  2. Plumbers will know if any codes need to be followed and most homeowners are not familiar with those. Plumbers will know them and will follow them if they are required.
  3. Having the installation done right the first time means you won’t have a malfunctioning dishwasher later. Getting the help of a professional from the start means you are ensured less problems down the road.
  4. Avoid warranty issues and expensive repairs. Having your dishwasher installed correctly ensures your warranty will be intact and you could have fewer repairs down the road.

Many people think that you just put the dishwasher in place and you’re done – but that’s not the case. When you use a plumber, they will first disconnect the electric and water from the old dishwasher. They will check the water supply line for kinks and determine if it needs to be replaced. Next, the old dishwasher will be removed while taking measures to ensure there are no water spills or leaks. Now comes the installation of the new dishwasher. The plumber loops the new drain hose to the drain source, connects the water line and secures it so it doesn’t leak. Once the supply line, electrical cable and drain are all properly connected, the plumber will run the dishwasher to make sure it works without any problems!

Again, DIY projects aren’t for everyone or for every home project. If your DIY project involves plumbing or electrical, it may be better to rely on the experts. Using a professional is a sure way to prevent headaches and expenses in the future.
