How to Install the Kick Plate on a Frigidaire Dishwasher

The kick plate on a Frigidaire dishwasher is the rectangular panel below the door.

It covers access to some of the components inside your dishwasher, including the drain hose and water pump. Installing the kick plate takes only a few minutes; you use a Phillips-head screwdriver.

Insert the bottom edge of the kick plate into the groove at the bottom of the dishwasher.

Tilt the top of the kick plate to the upright position so the plate is now vertical to the floor. Push inward.

Install a Phillips-head screw in the hole on the front left and right sides of the kick plate, using a screwdriver. The kick plate is now secure.
