Document created on : 2013.04.22 Product type and model Dimension (W×H×D) Fully Integrated / LSDF9962ST 23 3/4" x 33 5/8" x 24 5/8" Weight Dimension (W×H×D) 110 lbs 27 1/5" x 35 1/10" x 29 3/5" Weight 6.4 lbs Annual energy use (kWh/yr) 245 EF 0.9 Water use (Gallons/Cycle) 2.5 • Annual energy use is estimated annual energy use of the dishwasher under typical conditions, including the machine energy used by the dishwasher during a dishwashing cycle, any additional energy used by a water heater to heat the water, and the energy used by the dishwasher while in standby mode. It is based on an annual usage of 215 loads per year, or around 4 per week, as referenced by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) test procedure. • EF(Energy Factor) : The higher the EF, the more efficient the dishwashers. The metric has units : cycles/kWh, and is calculated by dividing one by the sum of the machine electrical energy per cycle and the water heating energy consumption per cycle, as described by the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 10, Section 430.23. • Water use is estimated annual energy use of the dishwasher under typical conditions, expressed as the number of gallons of water delivered to the machine during one cycle, as measured by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) test procedure. This product complies with the below mentioned directives and regulations.
