First, if it is a new dishwasher installation it will take a lot more work than just replacing one. This is because you are starting from scratch. You need to find a location for the dishwasher and set up all the electrical, plumbing and mechanical elements. It can take around three hours for a homeowner that does home improvements and knows about these items to finish this job.
Start out and prepare the area where the dishwasher will be placed. Measure the opening and the dishwasher to make sure it will fit in place. The common size is 24 inches by 34. When it comes to the drain you should check on any codes, such as air gaps. When a drain hose is attached to the disposal it is required to take care of the knock out plug.
Wiring can be tricky and dangerous. Be sure to read the directions carefully and go over them until you are sure you know what needs to be done. If you are not sure about doing this part of the installation then call a professional or perhaps a friend that can help. You want the dishwasher, but it is not worth getting hurt.
There are many other steps to completing a dishwasher installation. Be careful during the installation process. Again is you feel you need it to be done professionally it is better to call them before you get started then after you are in a big mess. Yet, it might be the perfect time to spend time with a friend or two that have more experience in this sort of thing. You can have fun and get the dishwasher installed too.
