Installing a Dishwasher (from scratch)

148 ratings | 7763 views
In this video I take a break from my usual content and travel to moms house to install a new Whirlpool Dishwasher and a new Kitchen Faucet for her. The tricky part...I'm starting from scratch. I need to make room. Cabinets are installed in the space where she wants the Dishwasher! Follow along as I show you the tools I used to remove the kitchen cabinets, rough in the plumbing, solder copper water supply lines, add fittings to PEX tubing, add shutoff valves, rough in the drain lines and complete the electrical work. I also install a new Pfister Kitchen Faucet. The finished project came out great! Stay tuned until the end....there is a small crafty project for the bathroom that my wife and I made for my mom from an old basement window. ⇨ SUBSCRIBE to Brandon Lund DIY Builds: https://www.youtube.com/brandonlund THE TOOLS & GEAR I USE 🔵 https://www.amazon.com/shop/brandonlund Any commission earned from the above Amazon affiliate links all goes towards helping to support my channel.

+Stephen Hill Hahaha. This reply had me laughing out loud! Pex is fun stuff to work with. Cheers brother!

I literally started my journey into plumbing yesterday (replaced my first ever stop valve this afternoon) and I gotta say, I'm SO glad I'm entering into the industry after PEX had started to become ubiquitous. The tools are a little pricey for sure, but I think as soon as the Shark bite fittings come down in price show long term reliability, they're gonna become industry standard. Then every Goomba with their grade 10 will be getting their plumbing tickets and the bigger commercial jobs will take half the time.

Im setup to sweat pipe. I dont own my own pex tools, however I have used it and i can see its advantages.

I can tell you haven't installed many dishwashers.

The drain hose should be pulled through the rear and not through the side. Eventually the door spring will either break or wear a hole through the drain hose.

The 90° used to connect the supply line is a compression fitting. This mean you shouldn't use tape or sealant. It has its own seal.

The tee you made is fine but it's a lot more work than necessary. You can buy a single fitting than does that and more importantly it has a nut that rotates so you won't need to pull the pipe away from the wall. It's always best to move pipes as little as necessary.

I've been an appliance installer for 20 years. Several of the things you did where very good. Specifically your cabinet work.

Brandon Lund I didn't mean to sound rude. I noticed some things you should really consider, especially if you're posting an instructional video.

BTW, totally stealing the idea for the pipe cleaner brush. Tiny moments of genius are always the most useful.
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
Thanks brother! I appreciate the support and glad I could help!

Nice. Plumbing is not my strength. I tend to rely on PEX. Really like how you include your kids. Wish more people did. Great project, great parent moment. Can't wait to see the next one, bud.

Good install man, nice tip on cleaning up the copper fittings, never tried soddering copper pipes, over here we soLder em :), and our water runs freely from the TAP- we don't need to force it out :). Seriously tho guys, Brandon is spot on about grounding -sespecially the waste (garbage) disposal, man in our street was killed when he installed waste disposal with no earth (ground) in a stainless steel sink. If in doubt, call in a pro for that if you are not 100% clear on the wiring. Or let the wife turn the garbage disposal on first -just kidding, just kidding, stay safe y'all.
