    I have always used a sawsall with a long flexable blade and a wonder bar. You can also buy a tool called a multimaster, which cuts at a 90 degree angle in close quarters.

    The flooring material likely runs under the cabinet if you are removing the subfloor. Mike's idea should work but space is tight right at the cabinet kick plate. I would get as close as possible with a circular saw set to a depth equal to just the floor. When you reinstall your sub floor you need to match the old sibs thickness.

    Always consider the dishwasher removal when installing a new floor
