    Just purchased a new dishwasher and installation instruction are not clear.
    Have removed packaging and dishwasher is free standing.
    Noticed polystyrene is installed inside cabinet at rear down sides and across the top.
    The only way to remove would be to take off top.
    Was not sure, as manual shows how to remove top, if polystyrene should be removed or is there to give rigidity or sound proofing to sides.
    Tried to ring Hotpoint but having held for some time keep getting cut off.
    Can anybody advise from experience should I leave or remove.
    Spent most afternoon trying to contact Hotpoint via chat line and phone. Chat line keep referring me to phone contact as appliance is new.

    Hmmm the only manual I can find online is how to use it rather than install it any chance of some pics of the manual too?

    Don't know your model but given its location I would say that's like you say for soundproofing and possibly vibration proofing too

    It can't be transport packaging normally there is very clear instructions to remove it before first use (like transport bolts on a washing machine)

    Think Manual only shows top removed if height has to be reduced to fit under counter top.
    No reference to polystyrene at all.

    Thinking about it , it could also be to make the machine more eco friendly by insulating it more so the hot water stays hot for longer so the heater isn't use as much

    Sounds like you should crack on installing it and enjoy not having to wash up!
