Dishwasher left or right side of sink?

14 years ago

I installed a new undercounter dishwasher in the same place as always, the right side when facing the sink. My wife comes up tonight and says it is a left side dish washer because the silverware basket is designed to set along the right (far) side of the lower rack. This would mean if that unit was installed in a left side of sink arrangement the silverware basket would be near the person standing in front of the sink and loading. Frankly I don't see any big difference, ableit I am a good bit taller (if that helps). I don't think dishwasher manufacturers make two basket arrangements, one for the left, and one for the right side of sink installation.

What do you think, know?
