removing cabinets

Look around and see how the kitchen was installed.......Did you have it done?

The face frames are probably joined together with long screws near the hinges.........the cabinets will be attached top and bottom in the back......there may even be a separate base(plinth) that will need to be cut for the DW........

The real unknown is how the Ply-sub/tile backer was/is attached to the cabinets............I've been known to really screw those down to provide a secure base for the tile.....and do any of the seams of the plywood fall on top of the cabs-in-question........
