Dishwasher installed tilting backwards (1/4 bubble)
by chris w.

Just had the new Samsung dishwasher installed and noticed the unit was installed with a slight tilt backwards. asked installer if that was correct and he stated that it is best to tilt is backward slightly to keep the water away form the door. Is this correct I cannot fnd anything indicating that this is an installer normal rule of thumb practice.

I have never leaned a dishwasher back for this reason and I don’t think it needs to be for this reason. There may be another reason for it to be leaned back such as an uneven floor or unleveled cabinet but not to keep the water away from the door. With this being said I rather see it leaning back rather than forward but it is not necessary.
