Question Installing a dishwasher

We are planning on installing a dishwasher in our home, we have a portable one that converts to built in but the problem is that there was never a diswasher in our home before, the diswasher will fit perfectly .
But how do you run the electrical, water and drainage for this when there was'nt any???

If your going to used the portable as a permanent type
you need to remove the top part of so it can slide under the counter.
You will need a 15 amp circuit for the diswasher
As for plumbing
if you have a disposal ther should be a connecting outlet on the diposal.
you will need a kit for the hose
they have some a hd or lowes and plumbing supply store.
if you have no diposal you will need to replace the pipe from the sink and get one with a atthament on it side.
the P trap must remain in place.
NOTE you must make a S shape with the hose to prevent the water from comming back in the diswasher

good luck
