largest size) plus one grounding conductor are permitted in the
terminal box
WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard
Electrically ground dishwasher.
Connect ground wire to green ground connector in
terminal box.
Do not disconnect the green, black, or white dishwasher wires
already attached to the terminal box. There should be adequate
length in these wires to pull the terminal box out from under the
dishwasher if you lift the wires off of the nearby clips or
components being used to keep them off the floor.
Use a ¹⁄₄" nut driver or ¹⁄₄" hex-head socket wrench to remove the
screw that holds the terminal box to the cross brace. Then, tilt the
terminal box, free the tab and lift the terminal box away from the
crossbar. Remove the cover by sliding it up and lifting its hooks
out of the slots. Retain cover for later use.
Install a UL Listed/CSA Approved metallic strain relief. Make sure
screw heads are facing up when tightening conduit nut. Strain
relief is provided with the power cord kit. See the “Tools and

white, using the twist-on wire connectors.
NOTE: Do not pre-twist stranded wire. Twist on wire connector.
Gently tug on wires to be sure both are secured.
Place wires inside terminal box. Replace the cover by inserting the
hooks of the terminal cover into the slots in the floor of the
terminal box and sliding the cover tight against the back wall
where wires come in. Make sure wires are tucked inside the box
and not pinched by the cover.
Then, put the terminal box back on the crossbar with the tab in
place. Use a ¹⁄₄" nut driver and the previously removed screw to
secure the terminal box to the crossbar.
NOTE: Do not plug into outlet until instructed to do so.
Once the terminal box has been remounted on the dishwasher,
there should be some excess length or slack in the green, black,
and white wires coming from the dishwasher to the terminal box.
Wrap these wires over the nearby components or clip them back
into the nearby clips that they were routed through prior to your
removing the box, to help keep them off the floor.
Determine Cabinet Opening
Tighten strain relief screws to secure cord.
14
Measure height of cabinet opening from underside of countertop
to floor where dishwasher will be installed (you will need to
measure the lowest point on the underside of the countertop and
the highest point on the floor). Refer to “Dishwasher Height
Adjustment Chart” for wheel position and for wheel position and
height of front legs needed for your cabinet opening height.
NOTE: If the minimum cabinet opening height is less than 34"
(86.4 cm), the rear wheels can be removed for additional
clearance. This will allow the dishwasher and perforated section
of the insulation blanket to fit into a 33¹⁄₂" (85.1 cm) high cabinet
opening, but the dishwasher will be more difficult to move.
Measurements are approximate. Wheels and legs are preset at
the factory for 34¹⁄₂" (87.6 cm).
Built-up floors: If the kitchen floor is higher than the cabinet
opening's floor - for example, the kitchen floor tile does not
extend into the cabinet opening - add shims as needed in the area
shown to bring the dishwasher up to 34" (86.4 cm) below the
countertop.
NOTE: Shims must be securely attached to floor to avoid
movement when the dishwasher is in use.
Install Door Handle
(on some models)
Cut insulation blanket along perforation for cabinet opening height
of 33½" (85.1 cm). For other cabinet opening heights, do not cut.
IMPORTANT: Do not scratch the front panel during this
procedure.
Remove the door handle and hardware bag containing the
setscrews and hex key from the cardboard box. Setscrews are
already installed in the handle. Place handle on mounting studs
with the setscrews facing down. Push the door handle tightly
against the door. Insert the short end of the hex key into the
setscrews. Tighten the setscrews ¹⁄₄ turn past snug.
Retain hex key with Installation Instructions.
Turn both leveler legs to the same height. Put wheels in the
required position determined from “Dishwasher Height
Adjustment Chart.”

When door is unlatched, if door opens by itself, move the
tensioner to a higher-numbered hole and replace the screw.
Reattach door spring to rear leg.
NOTE: Tensioners on both sides of dishwasher should be secured
at same holes.
With another person holding the dishwasher to keep it from
tipping, open and close the door a few times. If the door closes or
falls open under its own weight, the door tension will need to be
adjusted.
IMPORTANT: If wheels were removed, cover the floor when
moving the dishwasher. Slowly move dishwasher completely into
cabinet opening. Do not kink or pinch water line, drain hose,
power cord or direct wire between dishwasher and cabinet.
Remove cardboard from under dishwasher.
NOTES:
■ It is all right if dishwasher fits tightly into cabinet opening. Do
not remove insulation blanket – the blanket reduces the sound
level.
■
If using power cord, make sure to route end through hole in
cutout before sliding dishwasher into cabinet opening.
■
For models with water softener, make sure that the drain hose
stays on the hanger that is on the right-hand side and is
tucked in on the side of the unit.
To adjust the door spring tension, unhook the spring from the rear
leg of dishwasher.
Using a ⁵⁄₁₆" nut driver or hex socket, remove the screw from the

WARNING
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.
Tighten strain relief screws to secure cable. Make sure screw
heads are facing up when tightening conduit nut.
Form bare ground wire into a U-shaped hook. Wrap ground wire
hook clockwise around the ground connector screw on the raised
floor inside the box and under the washer. Securely tighten
ground connector.
Select UL Listed/CSA Approved twist-on wire connectors of the
proper size. See the “Tools and Parts” section at the front of the
guide for part details. Connect wires, black to black and white to
white, using the twist-on wire connectors.
NOTE: Do not pre-twist stranded wire. Twist on wire connector.
Gently tug on wires to be sure both are secured.
Place wires inside terminal box. Replace the cover by inserting the
hooks of the terminal cover into the slots in the floor of the
terminal box and sliding the cover tight against the back wall
where wires come in. Make sure wires are tucked inside the box
and not pinched by the cover. Then, put the terminal box back on
the crossbar with the tab in place. Use a ¹⁄₄" nut driver and the
previously removed screw to secure the terminal box to the
crossbar.
Once the terminal box has been remounted on the dishwasher,
there should be some excess length or slack in the green, black,
and white wires coming from the dishwasher to the terminal box.
Wrap these wires over the nearby components, or clip them back
into the nearby clips that they were routed through prior to your
removing the box, to help keep them off the floor.

Additional Tips
Expect longer wash times. Your new dishwasher will average
2 to 3 hours per load, but use nearly 40% less energy than older
models. Designed with a low wattage, low energy consumption
motor, your dishwasher washes longer to ensure exceptional
cleaning. Certain models are equipped with an optical water
sensor so the first cycle will run longer to calibrate to optical
sensor. Selecting certain options could increase cycle time past
3.5 hours.
Rinse aid is necessary for good drying results:
This dishwasher is designed to be used with rinse aid for good
drying performance and controlling hard water deposit buildup.
Energy efficient dishwashers use less water and energy, so they
depend on the water sheeting action of rinse aid for good drying
performance.
Start/Resume indicator light may flash:
When pressing Start/Resume, you must make sure the door is
closed within 3 seconds. If you do not close the door within
3 seconds, the Start/Resume indicator light will flash until you
press it again. (You must also do this when adding a dish during
the middle of a cycle.)
