Before starting. .
To install the dishwasher, read the following instructions
completely and carefully. There are important steps outlined that will simplify the installation job when followed
carefully. In addition, they will help you decide what
materials you need for your installation.
NOTE: Most of your work is done BEFORE you move the
dishwasher into place. Electrical and water supplies are
roughed in at the back and sides (see Figure 2) because
plumbing and wiring should not cross in front of the motor
or dishwasher legs. They should run straight forward from
the back to their final connections to the dishwasher as
shown in Figures 8 and 9.
Do not install the dishwasher over carpeted flooring. Maintain at least VI” clearance between motor and flooring to
prevent the motor from overheating.
CAUTION: Use protective padding if you lay unit on sides
or back, to prevent porcelain finish damage.
All kits, such as the Drain Air-Gap Kit (Part No. 300096)
shown in Figure 6, are available at your Whirlpool Dealer.

CAUTION:
WARNING:
Be careful. If the dishwasher door is opened before
the unit is installed in the cabinet opening, the
dishwasher will be unstable and it may tip over.
This dishwasher is not provided with a complete
enclosure (cabinet). For your personal safety, proteo
tion from exposed unit wiring must be provided by
enclosing the sides, top, and back at the time of installation. A cabinet opening that has a top (countertop) back and side walls will provide the required
enclosure.
To prevent porcelain chippage make sure the cardboard spacers between the tub and door are left in
place until the dishwasher is secured in the opening.

When determining
location, consider the accessibility to the existing service lines. Also plan to place
your dishwasher where its water inlet valve is protected from freezing. It is recommended that a builtin dishwasher be installed on either side of and adjacent to the kitchen sink. This area is readily accesssible to plumbing facilities and convenient for loading. Minimum height needed for installation
of this
dishwasher is 34-l /4”.

Locating Your Drain, Water and Electrical Supply
I
IMPORTANT:
OBSERVE ALL LOCAL CODES AND ORDINANCES
Review this page in detail. Look at the location where the dishwasher is to be located. Double check(ti I/)
that you have the correct water, electrical and drain supplies before attempting to make these connections.
NOTE: Figure 4 gives dimensional details that will be
helpful when making the decisions on how to run the
drain, water and electrical hook-ups.
Drain
Review Figures 6 & 7 to determine where you will connect the dishwasher into your drain system. Cut the drain
hose hole (11/z" or larger) in area shaded in Figure 2.
Check BOTH sides of area to be cut BEFORE cutting,
to prevent interference. If the cabinet sidewall is wood,
sand the edges of the hole smooth. If the sidewall is
metal, install a protective grommet Part No. 302797,
available from your local Whirlpool dealer to cover the
edge of the hole.
It is recommended that the drain line be connected to
your house plumbing using a drain air-gap (Part No.
300096) available through your Whirlpool dealer.
NOTE: Some other brands of drain air-gaps restrict water
flow excessively and can result in incomplete drain.
If local plumbing codes permit, your dishwasher may be
connected directly to disposer or waste tee, provided that
connection is made ahead of trap and is at least 20”
above floor level. If additional drain line is required it must
be a minimum of l/2)’ I.D. and should not be longer than
20 feet.
NOTE: To minimize vibration noise, the drain line must
be routed so that it does not touch adjacent cabinet
surfaces.
NOTE: When connecting
must be vented.
to a separate drain trap, it
Water
Determine where you will connect the dishwasher into
your hot water supply. Review Figure 8 and note the location of the water lines. The dishwasher water inlet valve
has 3/” IPS (Iron Pipe Size) [l/2” copper tubing] female
fitting. How much pipe or tubing will you need? Copper
tubing must have a minimum O.D. of 3/e”. Pipe, a
minimum of 3/e” IPS.
It is recommended that a shut-off valve be installed outside of the dishwasher area.
Cut the access hole (approximately l/2” or larger) inside
the shaded area as shown in Figure 2. Complete the
plumbing rough-in before putting the dishwasher in place.
The maximum water pressure allowed is 120 PSI
(Pounds Per Square Inch), dynamic. Minimum pressure
is 15 PSI.
The temperature of the water should be at least 14OOF.
Check this at your kitchen faucet. Let the water run before
checking the temperature with a candy or meat
thermometer.
Electrical Power Supply
Determine where you will connect to the electrical sup
ply. Review Figure 4 and 9, note the location of the electric lines. Cut the access hole inside shaded area as
shown in Figure 2.
A 120 Volt, 60 Hz, AC only, 15 Ampere (20 Ampere Maximum) fused electrical supply is required (Time delay fuse
or circuit breaker is recommended.) It is recommended
that a separate circuit serving only this appliance be provided. DO NOT use an extension cord.
Flexible Cord Connection
Local codes may permit the use of a UL listed flexible
three conductor cord terminated with a three prong
grounding type plug.
It is recommended that cord kit 675456, available at your
Whirlpool dealer or parts supplier, be used. If the cord
kit is not available locally, the flexible cord used must be
a three conductor 16 gauge cord that meets the National
Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances for this
type of installation. The length of the cord must not exceed six feet. It must be routed so that it does not touch
the dishwasher motor and/or the lower portion of the
dishwasher tub. If the flexible cord is used, it must be
plugged into a mating three prong grounding type wall
receptacle, grounded in accordance with the National
Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances.
Follow the instructions packaged with the flexible cord
and make sure the following requirements are met.
1. A UL approved strain relief must be installed at the
dishwasher junction box.
2. The power supply receptacle is installed as follows:
5
(4
It is recommended that a three prong grounding
type wall receptacle be installed on the rear wall
of the cabinets adjacent to the opening provided
for the dishwasher. See Figure 3A for details.
(W Locate the wall receptacle no higher than 8” from
the floor and within 18” from the left side of the
dishwasher opening or within 36” of right side of
opening. DO NOT use a female to male extension
cord.
CC) Cut a lV2” diameter hole in the lower rear side
corner of the cabinet opening (within 12” of rear
wall) for the cord to pass through, sand the hole
until smooth.
If the cabinet side wall is wood, sand the edges of
the hole until smooth. If the side wall is metal, install
a protective grommet (Part No. 302797, available
from your local Whirlpool Dealer) to cover the edge
of the hole.
03 Care should be taken when the dishwasher is
installed or removed to avoid damaging the power
cord.

How to Position, Align and Level Your Dishwasher
If color of door is to be changed, it should be done at this time prior to installing the dishwasher in the opening. (See pages
14 8 15.
Height of Cabinet Cutout and
Positioning of Leveling Wheels
It is recommended that the dishwasher be installed so
that it is level as possible from front to back. To do this:
Measure the height of the cutout opening. If the
countertop extends lower than the cabinet cutout, this is
the dimension that must be used. The minimum height
is 34%“. As shipped, the unit can be installed in a cutout
that is a minimum of 343/e” high. If the cutout is more
than 3445/e”high or less than 34Yo” high, refer to the chart
below for the position the leveling wheels should be put
in.
5
I
35”
Move the leveling wheels to the proper holes. When using
wheel position 1, the front levelers need not be pre-
adjusted. For wheel position 2 or 3, adjust the front
levelers out 4 full turns. If wheel position 4 or 5 is used,
preadjust the front levelers out 10 full turns.
Moving Dishwasher into Opening
Use caution when moving the appliance to prevent
damage to floor coverings. The weight of the appliance
may cause ripping, scratching or other damage to the
floor. For best results, slide appliance onto cardboard or
masonite before moving to prevent damage.
Now you are ready to move the dishwasher into place
so that it can be aligned with adjoining cabinets. Be sure
“Hose-Tie” is removed at this time (See Figure 1). Move
your dishwasher into the opening and make any
adjustment necessary to:
1. Align the door front of the dishwasher, as close as
possible, with the front of the cabinets. (Top to bottom).
2. Make the space between the dishwasher and the
adjoining cabinets the same on each side and the
same width top to bottom.
Note: The front levelers must set firmly against the floor.
Double check to make sure the leveling wheels are at
the right adjustment and the dishwasher is as level as
possible front to back.
