How many amps are required for a dishwasher circuit?


Albert Smith, Expert of Electricians Service Team

A dishwasher circuit typically requires a dedicated 15-amp or 20-amp circuit, depending on the specific appliance and local electrical codes. Most residential dishwashers have power requirements between 1,200 and 1,500 watts, which translates to 10 to 12.5 amps on a 120-volt circuit. Always refer to the dishwasher’s specifications and follow local electrical codes for accurate requirements. If you need help with dishwasher circuit installation, the specialists at the Electricians Service Team are always ready to assist with your needs.
