Do NOT install the dishwasher in a location where the water may freeze (where the
temperature falls below 32 ˚F (0 ˚C)). Frozen water in the hoses or pipes may damage the
dishwasher.
As with all any equipment using electricity, water and moving parts, potential hazards exist.
To safely operate this appliance, become familiar with its operation and exercise care when
using it.
The dishwasher must be properly grounded. Never connect it to an ungrounded outlet.
Prior to removal of original dishwasher and the installation of your new unit, make sure to

_ safety instructions
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
For a permanently connected appliance:
This appliance must be connected to grounded metal, a permanent wiring system, or an
equipment-grounding conductor must be run with the circuit conductors and connected to
the equipment-grounding terminal or lead on the appliance.
The dishwasher is very heavy. Do not attempt to move or carry a dishwasher alone. Two or
more people are needed to move a dishwasher and avoid potential injuries.
CAUTION
If the power cable is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, a service agent or
similarly qualified person in order to avoid a hazard.
Do not touch the power cable with wet hands.
CAUTION
Do not connect another appliance to the same power outlet as the dishwasher.
CAUTION
Make sure to use a new water supply line. Old lines are susceptible to breakage because
they become hardened and may cause property damage due to a water leakage.
If the temperature of the water supplied to the dishwasher is higher than 149 ˚F (65 ˚C),
control the heater so that it drops below 149 ˚F (65 ˚C). If it does not drop below 149 ˚F
(65 ˚C), connect the water supply line to a cold water supply.
Ensure that the water supplied to the dishwasher does not freeze. Frozen water can
damage the hoses, valves, pump, or other components.
Certified residential dishwashers are not intended for licensed food establishments.
(NSF/ANSI Standard 184 for Residential Dishwashers)

3. Check the size of the sink’s drain hose connector. If needed, cut the drain hose so its end
fits into the sink connector (1/2 in., 3/4 in. or 1 in. - as shown in the Figure below). If the
end of the drain hose does not fit into the drain hose connector of the sink, use an adaptor
purchasable at a plumbing/hardware supply store.
4. When connecting the drain hose, make sure to fasten it using a hose clamp. Failing to do so
may cause water leakage.
5. If there is no air gap, make sure to hang the middle of the drain hose in a high location to
prevent backflow (see the figure below).
Be careful when cutting off the end of the drain hose as there is a risk of injury. Clean
around the sink’s drain connection so that it does not damage the hose. Check for any
foreign items in the drain hose and remove them.
