Determine Cabinet Opening
Your dishwasher has leveling legs. The following provides
instructions to adjust the leveling legs to set the dishwasher to the
correct height for your cabinet opening.
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” to adjust the leveling legs.
14
NOTE: If the minimum cabinet opening height is less than
33⁷⁄₈" (86 cm), the rear leveling legs and spacers can be removed
for additional clearance. This will allow the dishwasher to fit into a
33¹⁄₂" (85.1 cm) high cabinet opening, but the dishwasher will be
more difficult to move. (Measurements are approximate. Rear and
front leveling legs are preset at the factory for 34¹⁄₂" [87.6 cm].)
Turn front and rear leveling legs to the same height. Refer to
“Dishwasher Height Adjustment Chart.”
Option 1, Countertop Attachment

21
WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Check Operation
■
Read the Dishwasher User Instructions that came with your
dishwasher.
■
Check that all parts have been installed and no steps were
skipped. Check that you have all tools used.
■
Start dishwasher and allow it to complete the shortest wash
cycle. After the first 2 minutes, unlatch door, wait 5 seconds,
then open door. Check that there is water in the bottom of the
dishwasher tub. Check that dishwasher is working properly.
If the dishwasher is not working properly, disconnect power or
unplug dishwasher and see “If Dishwasher Does Not Operate”
section.
If Dishwasher Does Not Operate
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,
fire, or electrical shock.
First try the solutions suggested here to possibly avoid the cost of
a service call.
■ Has the circuit breaker tripped or the house fuse blown?
■
Is the door closed tightly and latched?
■
Has the cycle been set correctly to start the dishwasher?
■
Is the water turned on?
If none of these possible solutions work, please see the Use and
Care Guide for service contact information.
Additional Tips
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet. Check that power supply
cord does not touch dishwasher motor or lower part of
dishwasher tub.
Reconnect Power
22
Expect longer wash times. Your new dishwasher will average
2-3 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 should be used for good drying results:
For models with rinse aid dispensers, use rinse aid for good
drying performance and controlling buildup of hard water
deposits. 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 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 light will flash until you press it
again. (You must also do this when adding a dish during the
middle of a cycle.)
NOTE: If a braided supply hose is used, replace inlet hose after
5 years to reduce the risk of hose failure. Record hose installation
or replacement dates on the hose for future reference.
