About the unicouple (portable models only).
Before Operating
the 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.
Tighten with pliers.
If faucet has internal threads: Insert both
of the washersinto the faucet adapterand
attach it to the faucet spout.
Tighten with pliers.
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.

hose can
burst if it 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.
