Granite countertop brackets – Before installing a new or replacement dishwasher in a kitchen, you will need to attach a dishwasher bracket to the upper front part of the cavity. A dishwasher stand is a stainless steel bar placed under the countertop that holds the appliance in place. Installing a dishwasher stand is a simple, simple task and can be done by do-it-yourself owners using only a few tools. Place the dishwasher holder in the space where the upper front part of the dishwasher will determine if it fits. If it is too large, cut to size with aluminum scissors.
Cut the end of a tube of silicone putty with a knife and open the putty using poker attached to a putty gun. Insert the putty tube into the putty gun and spread a layer of silicone putty under the edge of the granite countertop brackets. Press the dishwasher bracket onto the silicone putty and let it dry for 15 to 20 minutes. Pull stainless steel or wood screws through the mounting holes in the dishwasher holder and up to the bottom of the countertop with a screw gun.
Place the dishwasher granite countertop brackets in the hole and connect the water and drain lines. Plug the appliance into an electrical outlet. Push the dishwasher into place and drive the wooden or stainless steel screws into the dishwasher protruding retention tabs and into the holder using an electric screwdriver to finish.
