    I will assume you mean a fixed in place DW. If so the answer is no.

    All answers based on unamended National Electrical codes.

    I think it depends on the age of the house.
    At one time, I think it was allowed.

    Now that's just weird.
    Has anyone EVER seen one of those in someone's home? I've been in literally thousands of homes and I have not.

    One of my wife's female friends has one. It is something you would use in a tiny apartment. Yes, I have seen one. No, I did not inspect the place and wouldn't want to.
