TYPE OF DRAIN CONNECTION:
The dishwasher comes with a factory installed drain hose.
Drill 2” diameter hole to allow the drain hose to pass through
the cabinet and connect to drain. (under sink)
Review the different ways of connecting the dishwasher to the
drain system, (See Figs 4, 5, 6, 7) and choose a method that best
suits your (application) needs. Local codes may require that you
install an air gap kit (not include) on your dishwasher, check
with a qualified plumber if in doubt.

PREPARE THE LOCATION
For ease of installation, the dishwasher should be
installed as close as possible to the kitchen sink
(plumbing) to facilitate incoming water and drain supply
lines. Note: Built-in dishwashers must be completely
enclosed on all exposed sides; (top, sides and rear)

Installation Preparation
PREPARE ELECTRICAL WIRING
WARNING!
FOR PERSONAL SAFETY:
Disconnect electrical power at the fuse box or circuit breaker before beginning installation. Do not use extension cords
or (plug) adapters with this appliance. Such can result in fire, electrical shock or other personal injury. Failure to
follow these instructions could result in serious injury or death.
WARNING!
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS:
The dishwasher must be connected to a grounded metal, permanent wiring system. The equipment-grounding conductor
must be run with the circuit conductors and connected to the appliance’s equipment grounding terminal or lead. It is the
customer’s responsibility to contact a qualified installer (or electrician) to make sure the electrical installation conforms
with the National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances.
Do not connect the dishwasher to the power supply until the appliance is permanently grounded.
All wiring connections must be properly enclosed inside the electrical junction box.
Failure to follow these instructions could result in serious injury or death.
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENT
This dishwasher operates on a 120 volt, 60 Hz electrical supply. You must provide a separate (individual) circuit with a fuse or
circuit breaker rated for at least 15 amps, but not more than 20 amps. Your dishwasher circuit should not be used for any other
appliance while the dishwasher is operational, as the dishwasher will require the full capacity of the circuit.
If the electric supply provided does not meet the above specifications, immediately contact a qualified electrician to investigate and
correct any electrical supply problem(s).
The electrical connection (junction box) is located on the right front side of the dishwasher behind the kick-plate. (See Fig. 11)
For cable direct (hard wire) connections, route the electrical cable as shown. (Fig. 8) The cable must extend a minimum of 24” from
the rear wall to the front cabinet.
IMPORTANT: THE ELECTRICAL POWER LINE MUST NOT SHARE THE SAME OPENING (HOLE) AS THE WATER LINE.

Installation Instructions
Kick-Plate
Screws
REMOVE KICK-PLATE
Figure 11
Before you can make the water/electrical connections to the dishwasher,
the "kick-plate" must first be removed.
To remove the kick-plate, lay the dishwasher on it's back. Remove 4
screws (2 on each side) from the underside of the kick-plate. (See Fig.11)
It is not necessary to reinstall these screws once removed, as the
kick-plate simply snaps into position when reinstalled.
To remove kick-plate, insert fingers under one side and pull upward,
this may require applying some force (pressure) before the kick-plate
releases. Repeat the same procedure on the opposite side.
PREPARE WATER LINE

Connection Box
ADJUST DOOR BALANCE
The water line should enter from the left side of the cabinet.
(See Fig. 9) Drill 1-1/2” diameter hole to allow water line to
pass through the cabinet. Drill a secondary 1/2” diameter hole
to allow the electrical power line to pass through the cabinet.
The balance of the door is set for moderate opening/closing tension.
If you feel it is not adjusted to your satisfaction, it can be adjusted
by increasing/decreasing the tension of the door springs. (See Fig. 10)
IMPORTANT: THE WATER LINE AND ELECTRICAL
LINE SHOULD NOT SHARE THE SAME HOLE/OPENING.
Remove the spring holding pin and reposition to higher/lower hole
opening.
The dishwasher must be installed on the “hot” water line, using
no less than 3/8” O.D. copper tubing, or alternatively 3/8”
flexible braid (high pressure, high temperature) hose
engineered/designed specifically for dishwasher installations.
(this type of hose is available at most local hardware stores)
The higher hole openings will increase door tension.
The lower hole openings will decrease door tension.
It is also recommended to install a shut-off valve in an accessible
location (i.e. under the sink) between the incoming hot water
supply and the dishwasher connection.
WARNING: Always exercise extreme caution when making
adjustments to the door and door springs and make sure the door is
fully closed before attempting any such adjustments.
The dishwasher water “inlet valve” is located at the lower front
center of the dishwasher behind the kick-plate. (See Fig. 11)
Incoming water temperature should be at least 120ºF (49ºC) and
the water pressure should be between 20~120 psi.

CONNECT WATER SUPPLY
IMPORTANT: Check and make sure the dishwasher does not rub
against the incoming water supply line. The dishwasher must be
installed on a “hot” water line, using no less than 3/8” O.D. copper
tubing, or alternatively a Speedi-Plumb Flexible Braid (High Pressure,
High Temperature) Hose Engineered/Designed specifically for
dishwasher installations. (this type of hose is available at most local
hardware stores) Using the flexible type hose as described above, will
allow you to easily disconnect the dishwasher from the water supply line
in the event the dishwasher ever has to be moved and/or serviced. Wrap
(large thread) 90º elbow with pipe seal tape (or joint compound) and
thread elbow into the dishwasher water inlet valve, do not over tighten.
Make sure the 90º valve (connection) is facing the left side of the dishwasher.
Connect one end the water line to the shut-off valve and route the other end
of the water line across the (left side) kick-plate bracket and connect to the
90º elbow and tighten. (See Fig. 19)
