Location Requirements
Grounded electrical supply required.
Do not run drain lines, water lines or electrical wiring where
they can interfere with or contact dishwasher motor or legs.
The location where the dishwasher will be installed must
provide clearance between motor and flooring. Motor
should not touch the floor.
Do not install dishwasher over carpeted flooring.
Shelter dishwasher and water lines leading to dishwasher
against freezing. Damage from freezing is not covered by
the warranty.
A side panel kit is available from your dealer for installing
your dishwasher at the end of your cabinetry.
A moisture barrier accessory (Part Number 4396277) is
available from your dealer for installing underneath the
countertops. Call 1-800-422-1230 to order.
4
Check location where dishwasher will be installed. The
location must provide:
• easy access to water, electricity and drain.
• convenient access for loading and unloading dishes.
Corner locations require a 2" (5.1 cm) minimum
clearance between the side of the dishwasher door
and the wall or cabinet.
• square opening for proper operation and appearance.
• cabinet front perpendicular to floor.
• level floor. (If floor at front of opening is not level with
floor at rear of opening, shims may be needed to level
dishwasher.)
Helpful Tip: Be sure to accurately measure dimensions
and ensure dishwasher is level if the floor in the
dishwasher opening is uneven (example: Flooring
extends only partway into opening).
NOTE: To avoid shifting during dishwasher operation,
shims must be securely attached to the floor.
If dishwasher will be left unused for a period of time or in a
location where it may be subject to freezing, have it
winterized by authorized service personnel.
Make sure pipes, wires and drain hose are within the
shaded area shown in the “Product and Cabinet
Opening Dimensions” section.

Drain Requirements
Electrical Requirements
• A new drain hose is supplied with your dishwasher.
If drain hose is not long enough, use a new drain hose
with a maximum length of 12' (3.7 m) (Part Number
3385556) that meets all current AHAM/IAPMO test
standards, is resistant to heat and detergent, and fits the
1" (2.5 cm) drain connector of the dishwasher.
Be sure that the electrical connection and wire size are
adequate and in conformance with the National Electrical
Code, ANSI/NFPA 70 - latest edition and all local codes and
ordinances.
• Make sure to connect drain hose to waste tee or disposer
inlet above drain trap in house plumbing and 20"
(50.8 cm) minimum above the floor. It is recommended
that the drain hose either be looped up and securely
fastened to the underside of the counter, or be connected
to an air gap.
Use of air gap
Air gap
• Make sure to use an air gap if the drain hose is connected
to house plumbing lower than 20" (50.8 cm) above
subfloor or floor.
• Use ¹⁄₂" minimum I.D. drain line fittings.
• If required, the air gap, should be installed in accordance
with the air gap installation instructions. When you are
connecting the air gap a rubber hose (not provided) will
be needed to connect to the waste tee or disposer inlet.
Water Supply Requirements
• A hot water line with 20-120 psi (138-862 kPa) water
pressure can be verified by a licensed plumber.
• 120°F (49°C) water at dishwasher.
• ³⁄₈" O.D. copper tubing with compression fitting or
flexible braided water supply line (Part Number
4396897RP)
NOTE: ¹⁄₂" minimum plastic tubing is not recommended.
• A 90° elbow with ³⁄₄" Hose connection with rubber
washer
• Do not solder within 6" (15.2 cm) of the water inlet valve.
6
A copy of the above code standards can be obtained from:
National Fire Protection Association
One Batterymarch Park
Quincy, MA 02269
You must have:
• 120-volt, 60 Hz, AC-only, 15- or 20-amp, fused electrical
supply.
• copper wire only.
We recommend:
• a time-delay fuse or circuit breaker.
• a separate circuit.
If connecting dishwasher
with a power supply cord:
• Use UL Listed power supply cord kit (Part Number
4317824) marked for use with dishwasher.
• Power supply cord must plug into
a grounded 3 prong outlet, located in
the cabinet next to the dishwasher
opening. Outlet must meet all local
codes and ordinances.
If connecting dishwasher with direct wiring:
• Use flexible, armored
or nonmetallic
sheathed, copper wire
with grounding wire
that meets the wiring requirements for your home and
local codes and ordinances.
• Use a UL Listed/CSA Approved strain relief.

using a connection configuration that is in compliance
with local codes and ordinances. The water line to the
dishwasher should have a manual shutoff valve.

Route water supply line
5
Slide nut and ferrule
onto tubing
Nut
Ferrule
Slowly route water supply line through hole in cabinet.
(If using copper tubing, it will bend and kink easily, so be
gentle.) It should be far enough into the cabinet opening
to connect it to the dishwasher inlet on the front left
side of the dishwasher.
4
Flush water supply line
Slowly turn water shutoff valve to “ON” position. Flush
water into a shallow pan until clear to get rid of particles
that could clog the inlet valve. Turn shutoff valve to
“OFF” position.
Copper tubing only: Slide nut, then ferrule, about 1"
(2.5 cm) onto copper tubing.
NOTE: To avoid vibration during operation, route the
water supply line so that it does not touch the
dishwasher base, frame or motor.
6
Add 90° elbow fitting to the
water supply line
Connect the ³⁄₈" compression fitting to the water supply
line prior to installing the unit into the cabinet opening.
Attach such that the ³⁄₄" connection is facing upward as
shown below.
Copper tubing only: Put the tubing into the 90° elbow
fitting as far as it will go (the copper tubing bends and
kinks easily). Slide the nut and ferrule forward and start
the nut onto the elbow threads.
Flexible braided connection: Secure nut to elbow using
⁵⁄₈" open ended wrench or adjustable wrench.
NOTE: Do not use Teflon®† tape with compression
fittings.

into a 33⁷⁄₈" (86 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].)

IMPORTANT: Do not scratch the front panel during this
procedure.
Remove the door handle and hardware bag containing the
setscrews and Allen wrench from the cardboard box.
Setscrews are already installed in the handle. Place handle
