A panel for a dishwasher is the visible surface that conceals the appliance, while allowing it to blend in with the rest of the kitchen or match the décor. These panels are attached to the front of the dishwasher using hardware or adhesives. The purpose of these panels is to provide an aesthetic appeal, making the dishwasher look like it is part of the cabinetry. Dishwasher panels are available in different colors, including white, cream, black, and stainless steel, and some have a wooden or antique appearance. While some panels may have the controls located on the front, others may have the controls hidden on the top of the panel. It is important to measure the dishwasher before ordering a panel to ensure a proper fit.
