INSTALLING THE DISHWASHER
New installation
If the dishwasher is a new installation, most of the installation work must be done before the
dishwasher is moved into place.
Replacement
If the dishwasher is replacing an old dishwasher, you must check the exising dishwasher connections
for compatibility with the new dishwasher. Repace the existing connections as necessary.
Step 2 Select The Best Location For The Dishwasher
The following criteria are important to ensure the best location for the dishwasher:
The location must have a solid floor that is able to support the weight of the dishwasher.
The location must be near a sink with easy access to the water supply, drain, and electrical outlet.
For the drain to operate properly, the dishwasher should be installed within 9.8 ft (3 m) of the sink.
The location must let allow you load your dishes into the dishwasher easily.
The location must have sufficient space for the dishwasher door to open easily and provide
enough space between the dishwasher and the cabinet sides (at least 0.1 in (2 mm)).
If the dishwasher is installed in a comer, ensure that the side of the dishwasher is more than 2 in
(50 mm) from the wall or cabinet to its right or left.
The wall at the back must be free of obstructions.
If this is a new installation, follow these steps:
1. Using a hole saw, cut a hole into the side of the cabinet that hold the sink as shown in Figure
1-1 below.
2. If the base inside the sink cabinet is raised above the kitchen floor and is higher than the
connections on the dishwasher, make a hole in the base inside the cabinet and in the cabinet
side as shown in Figure 1-2.
Depending on where your electrical outlet is, you may need to cut a hole in the opposite
cabinet side.
The hole for the water supply line, drain
hose and power cables.
10
Step 3 Check Water Supply Requirements And Cautions
The hot water supply line pressure must be between 5.80~145.04 PSI .
Adjust the water heater to deliver water between 120 °
F(49°
C) ~149 °
F(65°
C).
The dishwasher must be connected to a hot water supply between 120 °F(49°C)~149 °F(65°C).
This temperature range provides the best washing result and shortest cycle time. Temperature
should not exceed 149 °F(65°C) to prevent damage to dishes.
Ensure that the water supply valve is turned off before connecting the hot water supply line to
the dishwasher.
Seal the hot water supply line connections using teflon tape or sealing compound to stop any
water leakage.
When you install the dishwasher, ensure there is nothing on the drain hose and be careful not
to tear it during the installation process.
11
INSTALLING THE DISHWASHER
Step 4 Check The Electrical Requirements And Cautions
The electrical requirements for the dishwasher are as follows:
In the United States, install in accordance with the National Electric Code/State and Municipal
codes and/or local codes.
In Canada, install in accordance with the Canadian Electric Code C22.1-latest edition/Provincial
and Municipal codes and/or local codes.
For cable direct connections.Hard wire installation.
Use flexible, armored or non-metallic sheathed, copper wire with a grounding wire that meets the
wiring requirements for your local codes and ordinances.
Use the strain relief method provided with the wiring junction box or install a U.L.-listed/CSAcertified clamp connector to the wiring junction box. If using conduit, use a U.L.-listed/CSAcertified conduit connector.
12
Step 5 Unpacking And Inspecting The Dishwasher
unbox the dishwasher in an open area free of obstruction both around the carton and overhead. We
recommend that you retain the carton and all of the packing materials until the dishwasher is fully
installed and operational to ensure you have removed all the product's components from the carton
prior to disposal.
Unboxing
1. Unbuckle or cut the four straps securing the carton top.
2. Lift the top of the telescoping carton clear of the carton tray and the contents, and then
turn it over and place it on the floor.
3. Put the straps and all of the packing materials from around the dishwasher inside the
carton top, inspecting them for any signs of damage.
4. Lift the dishwasher from the carton tray, and then place it on the floor. Put the tray into
the carton top.
5. Remove the bag that protects the dishwasher during shipping.
ALWAYS LIFT THE Dishwasher TO MOVE IT.
Sliding it over rough surfaces can damage the dishwasher's feet and sliding the feet
over finished surfaces can, in some cases, damage that finish or the underlying surface.
6. There is also packing inside the dishwasher that you may want to leave in place until the
dishwasher is installed.
7. DO not, under any circumstances, remove the sound-absorbent padding that surrounds
the exterior of the tub of the dishwasher.
Inspecting
Mechanical
1. Check the plastic base assembly to ensure that it is intact

of the rear leg until the dishwasher is level.See the second note below for
instructions on adusting the the rear leg.
3. Open the door of the dishwasher and check if both the
tub and door clearances are correct.If not, rotate the
leveling legs on the bottom front of the dishwasher.
You can also check this by placing a level against an
inside front vertical surface of the tub.
If the leveling legs are rotated to the right (counter clockwise), they are
loosened and the front of the dishwasher is raised. And the maximum
height be raised is about 1.968 in. If they are rotated to the left (clockwise),
they are tightened and the front of the dishwasher is lowered.
Before you move the dishwasher for installation, make sure to adjust the height of the legs so
the legs are as short as possible. This prevents the legs from breaking. Level the dishwasher
by adjusting the height of the legs after you have the dishwasher in place.
