greatest advantage under the sink location - proximity communications. You do not have to lengthen the hoses, lay pipes. But the sink also needs to be prepared.
Want to achieve more space under the sink - install a smaller sink, as well as a special siphon.
We wrote about a siphon for the dishwasher in a separate article. It is desirable that his tube goes to the side and down, so there will be more space for equipment.
Why can not connect the PMM directly to the sewer? So you can do, but we do not recommend. When clogged, the siphon is much easier to clean than sewer pipes.
Connect the dishwasher drain hose to the siphon outlet. Connections can be stapled to avoid accidents. On the water pipe install tee with shut-off valve. Connect the mixer hose to one outlet, the filter and the machine’s intake hose to the other.
If the model is built-in, install fastenings on the walls of the cabinet, hang the facade. Connect the power cord to a waterproof, grounded outlet. It remains to make a test run without dishes. Pour the detergent into the compartment and install a program with a high temperature.

What kind of dishwasher to choose
Among the PMM there are different models: full-size, narrow, compact. Everyone chooses, based on the free space that can be allocated for the installation of equipment. For embedding under the sink is perfect small compact model.
If there is enough free space on your tabletop, choose a small detached PMM( height 45-60 cm, width 50-55 cm, depth 50-55 cm).
If you need to somehow fit the dishwasher in a small kitchen, give preference to the embedded model, which is hidden behind the facade. Its dimensions: height 44-45 cm, width 55-60 cm, depth 50-55 cm.
Machines 30-40 cm high are almost impossible to find. Unless it will be modern technological innovations.
What to consider when choosing a compact machine:
- Capacity. Maximum load - 6 sets of dishes. It is believed that the small model consumes less water. This is true if you run one cycle per day. But if you need to wash more dishes, resource consumption will be the same as in the full-length or narrow model.
- Price, depending on the chosen brand. Indeed, the more promoted the brand PMM, the more expensive the car can cost, although the functions are almost the same. These are 5-6 basic programs, protection against leakage or children, several additional functions.
- Noise level. Compact dishwashers make little noise( around 45 dB), and if they are integrated into furniture, then you will not notice their work at all.
We will present you the most popular models, judging by consumer reviews. Today the market has a large selection of compact cars, but you will learn about the most interesting options.
