Dishwasher Installation Costs
A typical under-the-counter dishwasher can cost as little as $300 and up to $1,000 or more depending upon specific features and construction materials. Approximately two hours of labor are required to install the unit, costing about $120. This includes connecting existing power and water sources and making certain that the unit is level and secure. The plumber will also check for leaks to ensure that everything functions appropriately. Additional fittings and connectors may be required at a cost of about $25.
The cost of the project may increase significantly if the kitchen did not previously have a dishwasher. This may make it necessary to make modifications to existing cabinets and install or change power and water connections. This can add significant time, planning and materials to the project. An additional $200 to $600 or more may be required.
Once the dishwasher was purchased, and all required to do is labor (or in other words connect it to the pipes and water system) , plumbing costs to install a dishwasher should be $120 - $210
