Asked a simple question and got a correct and simple answer.
Never heard of a DW cord, most of what I have seen are hardwired with romex.
Cord whips can be used for just about anything, call them what you want.
Hey, 888 . . . DW whips are readily available at Home Depot. I have used 12/2 Romex but you MUST have proper connectors for the box under the dishwasher. NEVER leave the "cord" or Romex flapping against the sharp edges of the hole in the box. New dishwashers come with snap-in connectors or you can use syandard 3/8" connectors . . .
