To replace an existing one, with current plumbing connection and electrical OK and no modifications to cabinetsor flooring needed for the installation, is commonly done by installers from the store you bought it from. Generally around $75 for delivery and install but commonly free (or negotiable to free) if appliance cost was more than about $399-499 (depending on store). They will take old one away in the process too.

Appliance Repair - Large tech and Handyman are two other common installer Search the List categories for this.

If plumbing has problems - say if the shutoff valve for the hot water feed to the dishwasher is corroded and will not shut off, then Plumbing would be the normal Search the List category, and can do install too.

If new electrical is needed because it is a fancy high-end model with internal steam generation or such so needs more amperage than the existing circuit can provide, then you will also need an Electrical contractor. Ditto if existing electrical connection is damaged and needs fixing first.

If cabinetry needs modifications to fit the new unit - usually only with high-end models because most "normal" slip-in dishwashers come in two sizes to fit "standard" dishwasher cubbies, or if you run into a problem getting dishwasher out/in because the flooring has been changed since the installation so now it will not come out/in, then sometimes a handyman can scab a fix for it, but for a truly professional job generally a Remodeling - Kitchen and Bath contractor would be the one to do those types of mods and also to install the new dishwasher.
