How to remove a dishwasher from the integrated kitchen

dismantling PMMThe built-in dishwasher has become so familiar that many owners perceive it as an interior item, but this is a technique that may one day require attention. We’ll have to decide how to get the dishwasher out of the kitchen, but it’s not as easy as it might seem at first glance. If you act skillfully, you can remove the machine in a few minutes and we intend, in the framework of the article, to explain in detail how this is done.

Why take out a typewriter?

Indeed, why pull the machine out of the built-in kitchen, for what purpose do it? She stood there for many years and let her stand on.

  1. The first and most obvious goal is to repair the machine. Many breakdowns can be eliminated by gaining access to the details of the pallet of the machine, and you can get this access only by dismantling the built-in dishwasher. There are no other options.
  2. The second goal is to replace the dishwasher. Old equipment can be sold to someone else, and the proceeds can be added to purchase a new “home assistant”. But in order to sell an old typewriter, it must be correctly pulled out so as not to damage anything and not spoil the final presentation of the equipment.

Incorrect removal of the dishwasher can lead to the fact that it cannot be re-built.

  1. The third goal is more global - repair in the entire kitchen with the replacement of furniture. When disassembling a kitchen set, it is impossible to leave a machine in it. It needs to be pulled out, and this must be done carefully, since in the future it is planned to further exploit the “home assistant”.

As you can see, there are more than enough reasons. If one of them has affected you, read our publication to the end and understand how to properly pull out your to dismantle the PMM

Why not invite the master?

The reasons are purely economic. If you have money and you do not mind a little sponsorship of the master, then you do not need to read this article to the end. Call a specialist, he will come quickly and do everything. If you don’t feel like paying extra money, please note our arguments.

Firstly, the master almost always takes a separate fee for dismantling the Bosch dishwasher and other brands. The cost of the service can reach up to $ 40. And if in the future you need diagnostics and repairs, you will pay separate money for this. Secondly, calling the master, you will lose time, because due to the employment of specialists rarely come very quickly. Thirdly, a man and even some women want to show independence, if not in all, then in many matters. Everyone wants to feel like a jack of all trades. So amuse your pride is not always right, but in our case it is permissible.

Machine extraction process

Well, you decided to pull the machine yourself out from under the countertops or from the cabinet, let's get to work, but first we will prepare the tools. Inspect the machine mounts and select the appropriate screwdrivers and wrenches. For the most part, you can do with a screwdriver with a set of nozzles. We take it and go to the typewriter.

  1. First, we pull out the plug of the network wire from the outlet, and also block the flow of water into the machine.
  2. Next, unscrew the strip of the narrow front panel, which is located under the door of the machine. Not all dishwasher models have such a bar. Take, for example, the Electrolux dishwasher line. If you have such a machine, skip this step.
  3. Unscrew the inlet hose and substitute the bucket so that the remaining water drains into it.
  4. We find the place where the drain hose is connected to the siphon fitting and unhook the hose.

Most likely, the hose is pulled to the fitting with a hose clamp, so be prepared to loosen or cut it off if the hose clamp is plastic.

  1. Open the door of the washing chamber, find the fasteners that go out and unscrew them.These screws attach the equipment to the countertop.
  2. We unscrew the fixing screw and lower the legs of the machine to the limit.
  3. We grab the body of the typewriter and swinging it forward. You need to act carefully so as not to drop the machine on its feet.

We can say on this the extraction of technology ends. A number of built-in dishwashers have furniture facades, which can also be removed beforehand, but this is not necessary. The machine can also be pulled out with a facade, but it’s better to remove it all the same so that you do not inadvertently scratch or chip. Make it easy. It is necessary to open the door of the machine, unscrew the screws along the edges from the inside of the sash, and pull off the facade.

Be careful, because the facade is quite weighty and can slip out of your hands. Remove the facade by moving it a little up, and then on yourself.

So you’ve made sure that dismantling a dishwasher from the built-in kitchen is quite simple, not that complete dishwasher disassembly. You can do everything yourself and save some money for the family. The main thing is to follow our instructions, and everything will be fine. Good luck
