Re: connecting power cord to new dishwasher
I'll assume you mean that the old dishwasher had a power cord that plugs into a wall outlet (probably under the sink).
In the connection box under the new dishwasher, there will probably be a green screw. Connect the green (ground) wire from the power cord to the green screw in the connection box.
Be sure to use a knockout clamp (aka loom clamp or romex clamp) to securely hold the cord, you don't want to put stress on the wire nuts.

I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
