Electrical Shock Hazard
Electrically ground dishwasher.
Connect ground wire to green ground connector
in terminal box.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions
can result in
death, fire, or electrical shock.
• For a grounded, cord-connected
The dishwasher must be grounded. In the event
of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding will
reduce the risk of electric shock by providing a
path of least resistance for electric current. The
dishwasher is equipped with a cord having an
conductor and a grounding
plug. The plug must be plugged into an appro-
priate outlet that is installed and grounded in
accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
Improper connection of the
conductor can result in a
risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified
electrician or service representative if you are in
doubt whether the dishwasher is properly
grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with
the dishwasher; if it will not fit the outlet, have a
proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
For a permanently
connected dishwasher;
The dishwasher must be connected to a
grounded metal, permanent wiring system, or an
conductor must be run
with the circuit conductors
and connected to the
terminal or lead on the
Install where dishwasher
is protected from the elements.
Protect against freezing to avoid possible rupture of fill valve.
Such ruptures are not covered by the warranty. See "Storing
Your Dishwasher"
