This Dishwasher Side Mounting Bracket secures the top of the dishwasher to the side of the cabinet. If you have countertops made of granite or other materials that prevent you from anchoring the dishwasher to them, installing this accessory may alleviate this issue. This universal accessory includes two brackets and can be used to safely secure many different dishwasher brands and models; check your model number to confirm compatibility. Installing this accessory will require basic hand tools and novice repair experience. You must unplug the dishwasher or shut off the house circuit breaker for the appliance before installing this part. Also make sure you turn off the water supply. Helpful Tip: We also recommend using affresh® Dishwasher Cleaner* (item W10282479) to help remove limescale and mineral build-up that can be unsightly and affect your dishwasher s performance. *affresh® brand products are owned and distributed by Whirlpool Corporation.
