there are no sharp edges. Drain hose will be passed through
this hole and connected to the drain in a later step.
FOR PERSONAL SAFETY: REMOVE HOUSE FUSE OR OPEN
CIRCUIT BREAKER BEFORE BEGINNING INSTALLATION.
DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD OR ADAPTER PLUG WITH THIS
APPLIANCE.
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS:
• This appliance must be supplied with 120V, 60 Hz., and connected
to an individual, properly grounded branch circuit, protected by a
15 or 20 ampere circuit breaker or time delay fuse.
• Wiring must be 2 wire with ground.
• If the electrical supply provided does not meet the above
requirements, call a licensed electrician before proceeding.

Note: Dishwasher is not provided with complete enclosure.
Enclosure for sides, top, bottom, and back, must be
provided by installer at time of installation.
Note: A gap between the dishwasher tub front flange and the
front of the base cabinet may result due to either the
cabinet being less than 24" deep or the sink bowl not
being installed to specifications.
If the gap is more than 3/4", the sink bowl must be
relocated to meet specified dimensions.

Dishwasher wet test check list
Turn on power supply.
Latch door.
Select normal cycle on push-button or electronic models.
On dial models, turn control dial just enough to start
dishwasher. Be careful not to turn the dial past the first
water fill. On electronic models, push start pad.
l Check to be sure that water enters the dishwasher. This
could take up to 4 minutes.
If water does not enter the dishwasher, check to be sure
that water is turned on.
l Check for leaks under the dishwasher. If a leak is found,
turn off power supply, tighten connections and restore
power.
l Check for leaks around the door. A leak around the door
could be caused by dishwasher door rubbing or hitting
against adjacent cabinetry. Reposition the dishwasher if
necessary.
l The dishwasher will drain about 5 minutes after the first fill.
Check drain lines. If leaks are found, turn off power, correct
as necessary and restore power.
l Open dishwasher door and make sure most of the water has
drained. If not, check that disposer plug has been removed
and/or air gap is not plugged.
l Let the dishwasher run through another fill and drain cycle.
Check again to be sure there are no leaks.
l At the end of the second drain, push the reset pad on
electronic models. On dial models, unlatch the door and
rotate the dial to the “OFF” position.
