Answer 1 No, it is not worth the effort. Just bite the bullit and buy a new dishwasher Answer 2, A Different Opinion I would disagree as I have done it. Almost all portable dishwashers are built ins that have been placed into a shell... much like building it into your counter. Now, the big differences are in the "feed" lines...power and water supply and drain lines. First, remove the unit from the shell.. about a half dozen screws along the bottom and back. Once removed from the shell you will be able to access the power junction box located near the bottom of the unit. Remove the plug and cord, and wire in the hard wire feed. The drain and supply line have the sink tap adaptor on them, just cut the adaptor off with an exacto knife. Attach the drain line to the drain with the appropriate fitting on the drain and secure with a hose clamp. Secure the supply with the appropriate fitting. Install in counter and done. Answer 3 IF you already have, or have installed, a duplex electrical receptacle beneath the counter, then it is not really necessary to remove the power cord and "hardwire" the machine into the household electrical system.j3h. Answer 4 Some brands, like Kenmore, offer a conversion kit that makes the job much easier. Also, since Kenmore actually is a brand that uses other brands like Kitchenaid and Hobart as the actual dishwasher with just the brand name on top, you may be able to use Sears kits on other machines.
