    Default Replacing cabinet drawers with dishwasher

    I want to replace the cabinet drawers with a dishwasher. Removing the drawers and side walls would leave 24" of space, however, the countertop above will not be supported near the oven.

    My idea-questions:
    - Are there dishwashers that can support the counter top?
    - Is there a way to squeeze some kind of support on the left size with a standard size dishwasher?
    - Are there dishwashers that are 22" or 23" so I can leave the side cabinet walls as support?

    Being primarily an Australian based forum I would check with local suppliers, here in Australia there are slim line dishwashers

    edit eg Bosch SPU68M05.. 45cm Serie 6 Slimline Under Bench Dishwasher



    I am sure there would be similar in your part of the world.

    I think you may be snookered, you will need to remove the kickrail and cupboard base as well for height leaving nothing to support the side panel. Get in a cabinet maker and see what they think, it will depend a bit on carcass construction as to what can be removed.
