By a plumber - NOT including the cost of the sink (commonly $125 on up, $200-300 in most cases but as high as you want from there) and dishwasher ($300- on up, commonly around $300-450 for most models), labor cost and incidental fittings probably about $300 range give or take $100 or so. This assuming the new sink fits the existing rough opening or the countertop is just easily cut laminate or butcher block or such AND any cutting required to enlarge the opening does not get into the cabinet walls themselves. Would NOT include any situation where the new sink is too small for the countertop opening, or where the is a significant amount of replumbing required underneath because it is significantly larger/deeper than the old one inside the cabinet. Shallower/higher should not present a problem. Also assumes, if doing dishwasher, that new one fits into old space with no problem - right size for rough opening, and flooring/countertop reducing clearance has not been changed out since existing one's installation.


You said drop-in sink - that is critical, because undermount can run somewhat more and I recommend a countertop installer generally install that type, and that it have a physical frame supporting it, not just hangers, if a thin or stone/synthetic countertop.


Bear in mind, with new sink, be sure the holes in the sink for the faucet are the same size and spacing (lots of variations there) for the faucet, and that it has necessary openings for spray nozzle, air vent, soap dispenser, purified water dispenser, or any other items you have which need openings in it. Generally a plumber does NOT have the cutting tools to make new holes in a sink.

And rough cost above did NOT include a new faucet - I assumed reusing old one. Otherwise, no change in labor (assuming holes are right) but a new kitchen sink faucet can run around $125 on up to many thousands - yes thousands even if not gold-plated. There is one currently a fad (must have been on a home remodeling TV show or something) which a lot of people are buying - supposed to look like an oldtime wellhead or something I guess, but people are paying $3500 range for something which appears to have the quality and functionality of a $40 plastic faucet.


Possibly a cheaper solution - since the combined job is going to take more than the minimum service call for a plumber so you would be paying hourly rate to add in the dishwasher install. IF the new dishwasher can fit in the existing spot OK, and you say replacement so plumbing and electrical is presumably all there ready to hook into, most appliance stores and many box stores charge from $0-70 or so to come deliver and install a new dishwasher they sold you, plus haul away the old one - hauling old one away a plumber would probably charge you an extra $50 or so for, BTW. Delivery charge commonly zero for new dishwasher about $400-500 or more in cost, a charge for cheaper ones commonly. So - doing the new dishwasher that way after the new sink is installed might be cheaper than the probably $150 give or take the plumber will be charging.
