SeeStep4.
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.
SeeSteps4and8.
• 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 Step5.
(NOTE: If levelers are removed
during installation, make sure the floor is flat and free of any
obstruction.)

IMPORTANT:
Disconnect power before starting installation.
Electrical
1.
The dishwasher operates on a 120 volt, 6B Hz electrical supply.
Provide a separate circuit with a fuse or circuit breaker rated for
at least 15 amps (20 arnps if connected to 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.
3,
Be sure water inlet valve is protected from freezing• If valve
freezes and ruptures, flooding may occur.
Determine amount of tubing needed to connect hot water supply
to the unit's water inlet valve. Copper tubing must have a
minimum 3/6"OD. High-pressure
and high-temperature
rated
plastic tubing with a minimum inner diameter of V4"may be
used. A shut-off valve installed outside dishwasher cabinet is
best. See Figure 4.

2" Drain Hose Hole
If you connect to a sink drain, entry will need to be above trap.
A "Y" branch tailpiece and connector kit, not included, will make
this method easier and includes all needed fittings and
instructions. See Figure 5.
3.
If you connect to a sink trap, local codes may require you to
install an air gap kit, not included. The drain hose will be routed
from dishwasher to air gap inlet as shown in Figure 6. An air gap
kit is available from a plumbing supply store.
4.
If you connect to a disposer, the large end of drain hose will fit,
Figure 7(a). The knock out plug must be removed from
inside disposer inlet before making the final fit to drain hose.

Before cutting drain hose access, check both sides of selected
area to avoid interference. Cut a 2" diameter hole in shaded area
shown in Figure 2.

If the cabinet wall is wood, sand edges of hole until smooth and
rounded. If cabinet wall is metal, cover all sharp edges with
electrical or duct tape to avoid cutting drain hose.
