pulling dish washer out from under conunter

after unscrewing "the two screws holding the dishwasher to the countertop" how does one "Gently slide the dishwasher out from under the counter." my dishwasher does not seem to want to budge. suggestions as to how i can pull it out?

i need to pull out my dishwasher and re-attach it as it has come dislodged, making it difficult to operate. the 2 screws that hold it in place at the top of the unit and connect it to the countertop have pulled out of the fiberboard material and will have to be re-connected in a different location. also, i'm not sure how to do this either. advice?

Most of the newer dishwashers, unlike their predecessors have vertical plastic trim on the left and right sides that have to be unscrewed. Other than that, no more screws.

You may have to lower the feet to get the top front to clear the coutertop. Make sure those 2 tabs you unscrewed are not still hitting under the counter.

Other than that, you have to unhook the water supply line, the electrical wire, and the drain hose. If you have that 1/2"copper" supply line tubing, that can really hold you back, until you turn off the water under the sink and unscrew it at the fill valve at the bottom left front.

(I have this funny feeling you got it out already.)
