How to use the Unicouple
Before
operating
your
dishwasher
the first time...
Attach the Faucet
Adapter.
The
special faucet adapter supplied
with your dishwasher
must be
assembled to the sink faucet before
you can use your dishwasher.
The faucet adapter is designed to
fit standard
spouts having internal
or external threads. You will find
the adapter and two washers
in the
"Faucet Adapter" packet in your
dishwasher.
To install
faucet adapter,
first
remove the old aerator or trim ring
on your faucet spout.
If faucet has external
threads:
Insert the thinner of the two
washers into the faucet adapter
and
attach it to the faucet spout.
If faucet has internal
threads:
How to connect the
Unicouple
1. Pull Unicouple
and its hoses
completely
out from storage
compartment
located at rear of
dishwasher
and attach it to the
faucet adapter.
2. Attach the Unicouple
connector
to the faucet adapter by depressing
collar at the top of the connector.
When Unicouple
is all the way up
onto the adapter, release the collar.
It will then snap into position to
lock the Unicouple
in place.
The Unicouple's
small hose carries
water from the faucet to the
dishwasher.
Its large hose carries
drain water to the sink. Be sure
Unicouple
is pointing toward the
sink bowl drain opening and the
sink drain is open for water that
will drain from your dishwasher.
If your dishwasher
drains into a
disposer, operate the disposer until
it is completely
empty before
starting the dishwasher.
3. Turn hot water fully on betore
starting the dishwasher.
Insert both washers
into the faucet
adapter and attach it to the faucet
spout.
If the faucet adapter threads
do not match your faucet spout,
your local hardware
or plumbing
supply store normally
has
additional
fittings to adapt your
faucet spout to the special faucet
adapter.
NOTE: A sink spray attachment
hose can burst 'if_t is installed on
the same sink with your dishwasher.
We suggest that you disconnect
the
sink spray attachment
if your sink
has one and plug
the hole.
