How can I install a table dishwasher under my sink?

by Till Miltzow

I moved into a new apartment and the landlord wants the kitchen to stay as it is. Unfortunately, it does not have a dishwasher. :( I wonder whether it is possible to place a small Dishwasher under the sink.

The width, height and depth of a small dishwasher are appropriate, but I am very uncertain about the pipes. I don't know how I could wire them.

I ask before, because I don't want to buy a dishwasher that does not fit in the end.

Man thanks for your help! :)

    I would buy a moveable one and it should have instructions. Or go to a smaller mom n pop appliance store and ask them

    Since you are a renter, you would be better off doing without a dishwasher.

    There is no tltctrical outlet under the sink so you can't put it there for that reason. Also, there is no way to hook up the drainage under the sink and you should not alter the plumbing to do so since it is a rental. You could sit the little dishwasher on a counter or a moveable cart. You need both a place to access and drain water and electriity to run the dishwasher. Seems to be more trouble in this case than it's worth.

    Installing a dishwasher involves plumbing and electrical wiring. I would suggest you purchase a portable apartment sized dishwasher. It can be used by simply rolling it over to the sink, putting the input hose onto the faucet and the drain hose in the sink. They plug into a regular outlet. Then when you are finished, it can be rolled to any other spot available in the kitchen and used as a countertop. Then when you move you can take it with you.

    There are moveable dishwashers. I had one. But you need space to park it when not using it.

    Ti's moved to the sink, loaded, start it, when finished unload and move back to it's home.

    Because you rent, there may be a clause in your lease permitting your landlord access " as warranted". If he discovers your dishwasher, he may find you in violation of your lease.

    Either go without or buy small portable hook up to sink. I dont have a dishwasher. I rinse all dishes stack then wash the dishes after dinner.

    Dishwashers actually save you money on the water bill. Great if you are allergic to the detergents of hand washing. At one time, I had a small portable that would sit on the counter, held about 4 place settings. I am known as an old fart...not sure if that model or similar are still being made.
