LOL !
I asked him this question, but I misunderstood, too. I thought you just wanted to mount the AW on a "pedistal". My DH laughed when I told him that the salesman said it had to be a "special" one.
DH says that the pedistal will have to be able to slide out with the machine for service. You cannot expect a tech to pull the appliances down off of your "cabinet". Your plan sounds good for your backs...not so much for the tech. Like I say, rest assured that, no matter what brand you buy, YOU WILL NEED SERVICE some day.
