Dishwasher Installation
• Check the tub insulation blanket, if equipped, to be sure it is
smoothly wrapped around the tub. It should not be "bunched
up" and it must not interfere with the door springs. If the
insulation is "bunched up" or interfering with the springs,
straighten and recenter the blanket prior to sliding the
dishwasher into its final position.
• Slide the dishwasher into the final position by pushing on the
sides of the door panel. Do not use a knee or push on the
center of the panel. If you do, damage to the panel will likely
be certain the edges of the dishwasher door panel are behind
the face of the adjacent cabinet and not up against the cabinet
face. Refer to Figure U. If the dishwasher door is opened
when the edge of the door is against the face of the cabinet,
dishwasher door damage and cabinet damage will occur.
• Open and close the dishwasher door to be sure it operates
smoothly, and does not rub on the adjacent cabinet.

Dishwasher must be level for proper
dish rack operation, wash performance and door operation.
The dishwasher must be leveled left to right and front to back.
This ensures the dish racks will not roll in or out on their own,
without hitting the side of
the tub.
• Remove the lower dish rack
and place a level on the
door and lower rack track
as shown in Figure V.
• If your model has 4 leveling
feet, adjust the level of the
dishwasher by individually
turning the 4 legs on the
bottom of the dishwasher
as illustrated in Figure W.
• If your model has rear
wheels, the height of the
wheels are adjusted from
the front of the dishwasher
along with the 2 front legs
on the bottom of the
dishwasher. Begin
the leveling process
with the front legs by
individually turning
the front 2 legs. By
adjusting the front
legs first, access to
the rear leveling bolts
is maximized easing

gap to
the upper
cabinet, proceed to adjust the rear leveling bolts and wheels.
Individually turn the 2 bolts to adjust the rear wheels. Slowly
rotate the 2 bolts counter clockwise to raise the dishwasher,
and clockwise to lower it. Continue to adjust the feet and wheels
until the dishwasher is level as illustrated in Figure W.
• The dishwasher is properly leveled when the level indicator is
centered left to right and front to back. Also, the dishwasher door
should close without hitting the side of the tub.
• Replace the lower rack.
• Pull each rack out, about halfway. Check to be sure it does not
roll back or forward on the door. If the rack moves, adjust
leveling legs.
