I just bought a new Maytag dishwasher and I'm installing it myself -- a stubborn young fool. My old dishwasher had been refigured with a plug into an outlet behind the diswasher (we have a 190 hot water dispenser also-- that is the reason for the outlet).
Is it easy to convert a dishwasher from a hardwire to a plug in??? Can I buy a power cord that I could connect to the wiring of the dishwasher?? I don't want to lose the outlet behind the dishwasher as we want to keep the 190 hot water dispenser.
It's definetly a learning curve when you buy a new home.
In most areas it is against code to conceal an outlet, if it is hidden behind the DW that is concealed. Not only should you not plug the DW into it but the hot water disp shouldn't either.
