I need to connect my dishwasher to an electrical box in the wall under the sink but it is recessed so the cable must come out through the front plate and not side knockouts. Out of the same box will also be coming a similar cable but for the garbage disposal. The wall box is a regular metal handy box, 2.5x4 or something like that.
Is it okay to have two 14/2 NM cables coming out of the front plate of an electrical box and be basically exposed inside an enclosure (sink cabinet) on its way to the appliance? Should I get a coverplate that has two knockouts through which I would fit two NM cables fitted with clamp connectors?
