INSTALLATION PREPARATION
PREPARE DISHWASHER ENCLOSURE
Floor must be
even with
room floor.
• The dishwasher must be installed so that the
drain hose is no more than 10 feet in length for
proper drainage.
• The dishwasher must be fully enclosed on the
top, side and back, and must not support any
part of the enclosure.
CLEARANCES: When
installed into a corner,
allow 2” min. clearance
between dishwasher and
adjacent cabinet, wall or
other appliances. Allow
25-5/8” min. clearance
from the front of the dishwasher for the door
opening. Fig. 2
Plumbing and
Electric Service
Must Enter
Shaded Area
• The rough cabinet opening must be at least
24” deep and to 24” wide. The opening
should be to 35” max height.
DRAIN REQUIREMENTS:
• Follow local codes and ordinances.
• Do not exceed 10 feet in distance to the drain.
• Do not connect drain lines from other devices
to the dishwasher drain hose.
• Dishwasher must be connected to waste line
with an air gap (not supplied) or 32” minimum
high drain loop, depending on local codes and
ordinances to prevent back flow into the dishwasher. Air gap must be used if waste tee or
disposer connection is less than 18” above the
floor to prevent siphoning.
DRAIN PREPARATION:
The type of drain installation depends on answers
to the following questions:
Do local codes or ordinances require installation
of an air gap?
Will waste tee or disposer connection be less
than 18” above the floor?
If the answer to ANY of the 2 questions above is
YES, METHOD 1 MUST BE USED. Otherwise
either Method 1 or Method 2 may be used.
Fig. 3 or Fig. 4
CAUTION:
An air gap MUST BE USED if the drain hose is
connected to waste tee or disposer lower than 18”
above the floor.
Failure to provide the proper drain connection
height with an air gap or 32” minimum high
drain loop will result in improper draining of
the dishwasher.
Method 1 Air Gap with Waste Tee or disposer
Method 2 High Drain with Waste
Tee or Disposer
Provide a method to attach drain hose to
underside of countertop.
