How are dishwashers attached to countertops made of granite?

The best way to attach a dishwasher is to use mounting brackets on the side of the appliance and attach them to the lower cabinets. For older dishwasher models we can epoxy the top-mounting bracket of the dishwasher to the bottom of the granite countertop or silicone a small strip of wood under the counter. Once the sealant has dried, the dishwasher can be screwed into the wood to provide solid mounting. Another alternative is to use dishwasher straps and attach them to the back wall or to the cabinets. This option makes the installation easier but will make the dishwasher more difficult to service.
