Dishwashers with Dan

Hi! I’m Dan. Are you sick of your dishes piling up? Find out more about our dishwasher service below.

Convenience of a New Dishwasher

Perhaps you have had a long day at work, or maybe you have had a lot of chores to run. You finally had a chance to make a healthy dinner for the family and of course, the dishes pile up after.

The last thing you want is to roll up your sleeves and dive into a sink full of dirty dishes. Dishwashers provide the convenience that you have been looking for. Completing the task by hand is simply not a time-effective strategy.

Here at Plumber Near Me, we know dishwashers. Our plumbers are highly trained in the installation of dishwashers. Their training includes all types of washers, to ensure they are always equipped with the latest knowledge when arriving at your door.

We offer 24/7 service, every day of the year and always try to arrive at your door within an hour of your call* so that you aren’t left waiting with a dishwasher emergency.

Out With The Old…

If you’re replacing a tired and worn-out existing dishwasher that you’ve had for the past 10+ years with a shiny new model, you might find the choices available to you have grown quite a bit.

  • First of all, you have the fully integrated dishwasher, which is designed to be completely hidden with the kitchen cabinetry and provides a seamless and sleek look.
  • As its name suggests, the semi-integrated dishwasher is only partially built into the kitchen cabinetry, giving you unimpeded access to and visibility of the control panel, which typically sits on top of the appliance.
  • The most common type of dishwasher, the freestanding dishwasher, is generally the most affordable option. Easy to install, and relocate if necessary, they also come in a range of sizes and capacities.
  • Then there is the portable dishwasher. Portable dishwashers are great for homes that don’t have the necessary plumbing connections for a complete dishwasher installation, or just for smaller kitchens in general where lack of space might be an issue. You connect them to the tap at your kitchen sink for a water supply line. However, it’s important to note that while you might save on labour costs and electrical work, you may end up using a lot more water than with an installed model.

Doing away with the old dishwasher and replacing it with a newer model often means that you’ll need to check existing plumbing connections and possibly set up a new drainage point and dishwasher drain hose. And, if you’re replacing an old dishwasher with a fully or semi-integrated dishwasher, you’ll find the installation process different from portable or freestanding dishwashers.

Why You’ll Need A Plumber Near You To Install A Dishwasher

Think you have a bit of a knack for DIY work and reckon you could install a dishwasher from scratch by yourself? Think again.

Local homeowners will need to book a licensed plumber, and possibly even a licensed electrician, for any type of new dishwasher installation. Aussie plumbing regulations require you by law to have a professional plumber hook up your new dishwasher to the water supply line and drain line. Not only that, but to install a dishwasher yourself, you run the risk of water leaks, damage to cabinets, and the potential for electrical hazards. You could also risk voiding the warranty on your new dishwasher, and no one wants that, right?

And About That Electrical Work…

As for the possible need for an electrician, well that will come into play if you need a new power point installed in the spot where you’re planning for the new dishwasher to go. If you’re replacing an existing dishwasher, chances are there’s no issue with the need for power points. But if we’re dealing with a brand new installation, say as part of a kitchen renovation, then there’s every chance you’ll need to factor in a new power point as part of your dishwasher costs. Which means you’ll need a sparky as well.

Remember, dishwasher installation costs range for a variety of reasons, but knowing that you have skilled and licensed plumbers and electricians on hand to get the job done is sure to add peace of mind. So, before tackling dirty dishes with your stylish new unit, make the wise choice to ensure a safe and correct appliance installation.

Germ Prevention

Kitchens are a prime place for germs to gather and wreak havoc. Sometimes, cleaning dishes in a sink can simply swirl around bacteria that may have already settled and become even more detrimental in the long term. Dishwashers eliminate this fear.

Think about everything you throw into the sink while cooking: pieces of meat, old veggies and other items. The germs from these foods go straight back onto the dishes that you are washing. A good dishwasher though can stop this completely.

By running your dishes through the dishwasher, they will receive a thorough clean. At Plumber Near Me, we can work with almost any brand on the market, from Bosch to Miele. We know all the ins and outs of every system and how to best install or service them.


Not only will a dishwasher save you time and effort, but you will also likely be energy efficient and save a large amount on your water and electricity bills. Think about how long you leave that tap running when you wash dishes in the sink.

If you are worried about the dishwasher installation costs, we have options for you. We understand after purchasing a new dishwasher you might be facing the challenge of balancing your finances for the installation cost.
