Proper electrical,

within the shaded
area. See
"Electrical
requirements,""Water
requirements,"
and _Drain

governing
codes
and
oralnances.
It is recommended
that the
electrical,
drain and water
supply
lines be located
as close to the rear
wall as possible.
Check the location where the
dishwasher
will be installed. The
location
must provide:
• easy access
to water, electricity
and drainage
lines.

location
is to the left or right of the
kitchen
sink.
• square opening
for proper
dishwasher
operation
and
appearance.
• cabinet
front that is perpendicular
to the floor.
• protection
so that the water
inlet
valve and drain cannot
freeze.
• 1/4" (0.64 cm) minimum
clearance
between
the motor
and the
flooring
to prevent
the motor
from
overheating.
For installations
where the
dishwasher
will be left unused and
subject
to freezing
temperatures,
see the "Storing Your Dishwasher + or
"Moving
or winterizing
your
dishwasher"
