Exactly! It's the same process as in an undermount SS sink.

With the plywood you don't need the SDS masonry bits or the anchors.

Is it at all necessary to anchor the DW to the ground? Or just the underside of the granite?
Typically, the boxes are installed horizontally, in the end panel, which makes them less aesthetically insulting.

The DW shape is rounded on the sides and with a 2 or 2-1/2 face frame gives you plenty of room for a standard box.

The DW sets on leveling legs and the top anchoring points are not just to hold them in place, they are also a tip over prevention.

On my island I installed the electrical box inside the cabinet and then installed a plug strip on the underside of the countertop.

I just spoke with the granite guy. He said plywood is not necessary for this 3 cm granite.

New dishwashers usually have flanges on them that allow you to connect them to the cabinet (or plywood next to them). Even if they don't the counter installers usually attach the counter to the top (there is a flat ledge just behind the door) of the dishwasher keeping it from moving.

I don't have a picture in an Island setting, but here's one from a traditional end setup. The difference being you will need a panel behind all this going from the sink cabinet to the corner. You would then either put finished panels on top to match the cabinet or do some other sort of decorative finishing (bead board, tile, etc...)

My Bosch dishwasher had tabs on the side for attaching to the side cabinet/panel instead of the top. Worked fine.
