Our Bosch dishwasher does use a simple plug-in cord to the wall receptacle 
under the sink cabinet.  Recently, there was a Bosch recall to replace what had 
been an under capacity power cord and it was done without charge.

I have no idea whether I get interference from the dishwasher.

Depending on the exact situation you might be able to convert the DW to
cord-and-plug connected, and install a duplex receptacle under your sink.
That would allow you to use flexible cord instead of Romex. Steve
