Examine dishwasher
and locate connections.
See Step
4.
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.
See
Steps
4
and 8.
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 Step
5.
(NOTE:
If levelers are
removed
during installation,
make sure the floor is
flat
and
free
of any obstruction.)

The dishwasher
operates
on a 120 volt, 60 Hz electrical
supply.
Provide a separate
circuit with a fuse or circuit breaker rated for
at least 15 amps (20 amps if connected
with disposer)
but not
more than 20 amps.

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.
.
3.
Be sure water inlet valve is )rotected 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
_/8"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

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

gap kit is available from a plumbing supply store.
(If the drain
hose is installed through the floor, an air gap is necessary).
4.
If you connect
to a disposer,
the large end of drain hose will
fit. Figure
