Electric Shock Hazard
Disconnect electrical power at the fuse box or
circuit breaker box before beginning installation.
Failure to follow this warning could result in death
or serious injury.
• Examine dishwasher and locate connections. See Step 4.
• Locate dishwasher where there is easy access to drain,
water, and electrical lines. The best location is on either side
of the kitchen sink for access to existing plumbing and ease
in loading dishes. See Step 4.
• Electrical, water, and drain connections are not the same for
all age, brands, or models of dishwashers. Check the
location and length of home utilities. See Step 4.
• A 15-20 amp, grounded, 120 volt AC only, electrical supply is
required. See Steps 4 and 8.
• If dishwasher drain hose will be connected to a food
disposer for the first time, knock out plug located inside
disposer inlet. See Steps 4 and 6.
• Kinked water or drain hoses can cause problems. See Step
6.
• Dishwashers need to be connected to a hot water supply
with enough water pressure to insure an adequate fill.
See Steps 4 and 7.
• Each home installation differs. You will need additional
parts listed above to complete your installation.
See Steps 4 and 7.
• Flush water line prior to making the final connection to
prevent clogging of dishwasher’s filter screen. See Step 7.
• The dishwasher will look, sound, and perform best when
properly leveled. See Step 5. (NOTE: If levelers are
removed during installation, make sure the floor is flat and
free of any obstruction.)
• Anchor the dishwasher to countertop. See Step 9.

Electric Shock Hazard
Observe all local codes and ordinances for
electrical and plumbing connections. All electrical
and plumbing work should be performed by
qualified persons. Failure to follow this warning
could result in death or serious injury.

should be flat and free of any obstruction.
IMPORTANT: Drain, water, and electrical lines should be
roughed-in before going any further.
Electric Shock Hazard
Electrical, water, and drain lines must be confined
to shaded areas in Figure 2.
Electric conductors, water, and drain could be
damaged.
Failure to follow these instructions could result in
fire or electric shock.
NOTE: If dishwasher is installed at end of a cabinet line, sides
and back must be fully enclosed.

IMPORTANT: Disconnect power before starting installation.
Electrical
1. The dishwasher operates on a 120 volt, 60 Hz electrical supply.
Provide a separate circuit with a fuse or circuit breaker rated for
at least 15 amps (20 amps if connected with disposer) but not
more than 20 amps.
2. Note the locations of electrical supply and dishwasher’s
electrical junction box on right underside of unit behind kickplate
assembly. See Figure 3.
3. Cut access hole in shaded area shown in Figure 2.
4. Pull electrical cable through hole into installation area.
Water
1. Determine where you will connect to hot water supply. Review
Figure 3 and note the location of water inlet valve.
Property Damage
Do not use the furnished drain hose or a rubber garden hose
for the water supply line. Either of these hoses can burst.
Flooding may occur and cause property damage.
2. Be sure water inlet valve is protected from freezing. If valve
freezes and ruptures, flooding may occur.
3. Determine amount of tubing needed to connect hot water
supply to the unit’s water inlet valve. Copper tubing must have a
minimum
/
” OD. High-pressure and high-temperature rated

plastic tubing with a minimum inner diameter of
