panels are installed. Check the upper
rear portion
of the cabinet opening to make certain that area is
cleared of cabinet
or top support framing
members. Set the
dishwasher adjacent to cabinet and adjust the four leveling feet to
the desired height. The four leveling feet can be used to raise the
dishwasher to 36” or lower to X3-11/16”
(33-7/16”
if leveling
screws are removed). Adjust kickplate. Kickplate can be adjusted by
moving up or down.
After the dishwasher is in position, make sure it is level from side to
side and front to rear. If possible dishwasher front should be
parallel to counter
top and flush with cabinets. To maintain
alignment of dishwasher with adjacent cabinets, fasten dishwasher
to counter top with two #lO flat head wood screws (not furnished).
Use these screws in the two L shaped adjustable
brackets
,
(furnished)
at the upper left and right hand corners of
dishwasher, When dishwasher is not installed beneath a continuou,.T
counter top it may be necessary to anchor dishwasher to floor using
l/4” lag bolt or screw, in hole provided. If door tension adjustment
is required, adjust door spring so the door is counterbalanced
and
will remain in open position. Adjust tension by changing bracket to
alternate holes and/or moving spring hooks to alternate position.
