Which tools do I need to install a built-in dishwasher?

To build in a dishwasher you always need a spirit level, drill, and tape measure. Every dishwasher always comes with a bag with installation material that contains the necessary screws, plates, and brackets. Depending on the brand you choose, you may also need additional tools. In this article I'll explain what you need to build in your dishwasher.

Standard requirements

To install a dishwasher, you always need the following tools:

  • Drill
  • Spirit Level
  • Torx 20 screwdriver
  • Tape measure
  • Scissors
  • *Saw

*Sometimes you need a jigsaw to saw a piece from the baseboard. This depends on your kitchen.

In addition, you need other tools. The material used differs per dishwasher type and brand. That's why you should always consult the installation manual to avoid surprises. Below I will highlight 3 major brands as an example.
