AND the dishwasher is cord-and-plug connected, then it is possible to have the fridge and dishwasher on the same 20 ampere small appliance branch circuit.

What appliances need their own breaker?

Appliances drawing enough power to require their own circuit include ovens, stoves, dryers, washing machines, dishwashers and hot tubs. Some garbage disposals, space heaters, microwaves, refrigerators, freezers and garbage disposals also might require enough wattage to demand separate circuits.

Does a dishwasher need a junction box?

Each dishwasher comes with a junction box (with power cord) to be installed in a cabinet next to the dishwasher cutout. It can be installed by an installer, servicer, technician, electrician or other qualified professional and is intended for hard-wired installations.
