Local amendments may change the requirements.

Take a look at 210.12(D).

Yes, the gfci is required regardless of whether it is direct wired or cord and plug. That is my point. I now that a direct wire connection is made at an outlet.

Ken mentioned receptacle so my point was to show that gfci is required even if there wasn't a receptacle.

Not sure what you were getting at

The kitchen counter receptacles cannot be on with the dishwasher. The small appliance branch circuit (kitchen counter) can be connected to pantry, dining room areas but not to any appliances
