Welcome to the forum, Jay.

Sorry for your troubles.

Let's not assume it's mold just yet without more evidence. What we need to know is what the floor is comprised of, from bottom to top. You can correct me on any part of this if I get it wrong. I'm assuming there's a joist structure of some sort, with a subfloor. Typically there's some type of tiling backer or membrane, then an adhesive of some type to stick the tile down.

Tell us what each of those are, as much as you know, and also what kind of tile and grout you have. That'll give us a starting point.

Also, post a couple more pictures of the tile, and some of the floor from underneath if you have access to it.

If you can prove that the dishwasher installers caused the leak, then they should be the ones paying for the repair, in my opinion. You may want to get your homeowners insurance on board at this stage, just in case this happens to be a leak that is covered.
