Default Help removing dishwasher please!

On Mon, 17 Mar 2008 20:38:41 -0700 (PDT), Ingram Developers

So, somehow we had a rubber spatula fall on to the heating element in
our dishwasher, where it proceeded to melt everywhere. We wanted a
new dishwasher anyways, so this was a small blessing in disguise. Now
the problem...

That's nothing. Just scrape off what you can and then use the
dishwasher as normally. Eventually the pieces will fall off, and come
to rest in the food filter where you can pick them up like food.

We had hardwood floors put in the kitchen, and the bottom of the
dishwasher is now "walled" behind the new floor so that it won't slide
out anymore. We have new granite countertops above it, so removing
the counter won't work.

I think that with enough pulling and tugging, we may be able to
squeeze the washer out, but I'm afraid it will damage the floor while
I'm doing it.

And how will you then get the new one in?

Is it possible to completely disassemble a dishwasher so that it will
come out in pieces? Anyone run into this before?

Lots of people. It ain't pretty.
