(connecting dishwasher to outlet)
Local codes may permit the use of a U.L.-listed, flexible,
three-conductor, power supply cord terminated with a
three-prong, grounding-type plug.
It is recommended that cord kit, Part No. 4317824, avail-
able from your dealer or parts supplier, be used. If the cord
kit is not available locally, the flexible cord used must be a
U.L.-listed, three-conductor, 16-gauge cord that meets the
National Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA 70-latest edition, and
all local codes and ordinances. The length of the cord must
not exceed six feet. It must be routed so that it does not
touch the dishwasher motor or the lower portion of the
dishwasher tub. A strain relief (Part No. 596171), available
from your dealer or parts supplier, or a similar part must
be used to secure the flexible cord to the dishwasher frame
or terminal box. The flexible cord must be plugged into a
mating, three-prong, grounding-type wall receptacle
grounded in accordance with the National Electrical
Code ANSI/NFPA 70-latest edition, and all local codes
and ordinances. Follow the instructions packaged with
the flexible cord.

Dishwashers equipped with a power supply cord have
a 3-prong, grounding plug. It must be plugged into a mating,
3-prong, grounding-type receptacle (See electrical require-
ments, page 3). If a mating wall receptacle is not available,
it is the personal responsibility and obligation of the custo-
mer to have a properly grounded, 3-prong, wall receptacle
installed by a qualified electrician. (See Figure 4.)
