The exact size of cutout needed to install a dishwasher into should be explicitly stated in its installation instructions. Have a look at them.

Generally, a "24-inch" dishwasher is designed to go into an opening that is exactly 24 inches wide. The appliance will be slightly narrower (e.g. 23-5/8). Appliances are always built fractionally narrower than some round number (also microwaves, ranges, fridges) so kitchen layouts can maintain precise alignment from wall to base cabinets. American cabinets come in 3-inch width increments, so you could have a 24-inch wall cabinet directly above the dishwasher and any adjacent wall cabinets would still be perfectly aligned with base cabinets below.
