10 Making the Connections
MAKING THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
1. The dishwasher operates on a 120 Volt, 60 Hz electrical supply. Provide
a separate circuit with fuse or circuit breaker rated for at least 15 amps (20
amps if connected with a disposer), but not more than 20 amps.
2. Note the location of the electrical supply and the dishwasher’s electrical
junction box on the right hand underside of the unit. See Figure 2, page 9.
3. Cut the access hole in the shaded area shown in Figure 1, page 7.
4. Pull the electrical cable through the hole into the installation area.
MAKING THE WATER CONNECTION
1. Determine where you connect to the hot water supply. Review Figure 2,
page 9 and note the location of the water inlet valve.
CAUTION
Property Damage – Do not use the furnished drain hose or a rubber garden hose for the
water supply line. Either of the hoses can burst. Flooding may occur and cause property
damage. Property damage resulted from actions described will void the warranty.
An existing or new, copper or stainless steel braided line, rated for dishwasher use, should
attach the dishwasher to the water supply line.
2. Be sure water inlet is protected from freezing. If valve freezes and
ruptures, flooding may occur.
3. Determine the amount of tubing needed to connect the hot water supply to
the unit’s water inlet valve. Copper tubing must have a minimum of 3/8” OD.
High-pressure and high-temperature rated plastic tubing with a minimum
inner diameter of 1/4” may be used. A shut-off valve installed outside the
dishwasher cabinet is recommended. See Figure 3, page 11.

2. Cut water access hole in cabinet as shown in Figure 3.
3. Route water supply line to installation area.
Through Cabinet
Figure 3
NOTE
Incoming hot water temperature, set at the hot water heater, should be 120° F (49° C). Water
pressure should be between 20-120 psi.
MAKING THE DRAIN CONNECTION
CAUTION
To prevent siphoning, an air gap MUST BE USED when waste tee or disposer connection
is less than 18” above the floor to prevent siphoning. Failure to provide the proper drain
connection using an air gap or a 30” minimum high drain loop will result in improper
draining and may cause property damage or poor wash performance.
1. Follow local codes and ordinances.
2. Review Figure 4 and Figure 5, page 12 to see the different ways to connect
dishwasher to drain system. Choose the method that best suits your need.
3. If you connect to a sink drain, entry will need to be above the trap. A “Y”
branch tailpiece and connector kit, not included, will make this method easier
and included all needed fittings and instructions. See Figure 5, page 12.

FINISHING THE WATER CONNECTION
NOTE
If you are using an existing water line, cut 1” off the end. Always use a new ferrule and
compression nut.
1. Flush the water supply line to clear any foreign material before
connecting to the dishwasher.
2. Make sure that there are no sharp bends or kinks to restrict the water
flow.
3. Insert the water line into the 90° elbow. See Figure 15.
4. Slide the ferrule against the elbow and secure with the
compression nut.
5. Turn the water on to check for leaks.
6. Feed the dishwasher cable through the small hole in the junction box.
7. Replace the access cover.
FINISHING THE DRAIN CONNECTION
NOTE
Follow all local codes and ordinances.
The dishwasher is supplied with a 72” long drain hose.
1. If a longer drain hose is required, add up to 48” of length for a total of 10 feet.
The hose must not restrict the flow from the drain of the dishwasher to the
house’s drain system. The type of hose used should be consistent with the
type and diameter installed on the dishwasher.
2. Secure the drain hose to the air gap, water tee or disposer with clamps.
3. Make sure the drain hose is not kinked.
NOTE
When connecting the drain line to the disposer, check to be sure
that the knockout plug has been removed. DISHWASHER WILL NOT
DRAIN IF THE PLUG IS LEFT IN PLACE.
