    My dishwasher died and I've been looking online for a replacement.

    They're pretty much all spec'd at 35" high. My current opening is only 34 1/4" from the floor to the bottom of the countertop.

    Is that 35" that's noted in the spec's the maximum height with adjustable legs and I'll be able to turn it down to 34 1/4" or....?

    Thanks

    Thanks for the reply nealtw. I'll take a tape for sure, just hoping they have the right models in stock. Last time I tried buying something from Home Depot and Sears, they only had 2-3 floor models around.

    EDIT: Just pulled out the old dishwasher and extended the adjustment screws out all the way.... 35". So here's hoping! :)
