Location Requirements
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.
Protect 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 No. 4396277) is available from
your dealer for installing underneath the countertop, but is not
required. This may also be obtained by calling 1-877-650-5775.
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.)
NOTE:To prevent 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 “Cutout dimensions” section.
Helpful Tip: If the floor in the dishwasher opening is uneven
(example: tile flooring only partway into opening) you will need
to take special care in measuring dimensions and in leveling
dishwasher.

Drain Requirements
Electrical Requirements
• Use the new drain hose supplied with your dishwasher. If this is
not long enough, use a new drain hose with a maximum length
of 12 feet (3.7 m) 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.
• 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.
Contact a qualified electrician.
Assure that the electrical installation is adequate and in conformance
with all national and local codes and ordinances.
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.
air gap
• 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.
Water Supply Requirements
• A hot water line with 20-120 psi (138-862 kPa) water pressure.
• 120°F (49°C) water at dishwasher.
• 3/8” O.D. copper tubing with compression fitting or flexible
stainless steel braided fill line (1/2” minimum plastic tubing is not
recommended).
• A 90° elbow with 3/8” N.P.T. external pipe threads on one end.
Do not solder within 6” (15.2 cm) from water inlet valve.
If direct wiring dishwasher:
• Use flexible, armored or non-metallic sheathed, copper wire with
grounding wire that meets the wiring requirements for your home
and local codes and ordinances.
• Use strain relief method provided with house wiring junction
box or install a U.L.-listed/CSA-certified clamp connector to the
house wiring junction box. If using conduit, use a U.L.-listed/CSAcertified conduit connector.
If connecting dishwasher with a power supply cord:
• Use Power Supply Cord Kit (Part No. 4317824) marked for use
with dishwashers. Kit contents include:
– Volex, Inc., UL listed 16 gauge 3 wire power supply cord with 3
prong grounded plug.
– Neer C-500 7/8 inch strain relief.
– 3 wire connectors.
– Part No. 302797 grommet
Follow the kit instructions for installing the power supply cord.
• Power supply cord must plug into a mating three prong, grounded
outlet, located in the cabinet next to the dishwasher opening. Outlet
must meet all local codes and ordinances.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in
death, fire, or electrical shock.
1. Disconnect power.
2. Turn off water supply.
Prepare cabinet opening using
existing utility hookups
• Follow the steps in this section if you are installing the dishwasher
in an existing cabinet opening with utility hookups.
• If you are installing the dishwasher in a cabinet opening that does
not have hookups, follow the steps under “Prepare cabinet opening
where there are no existing utility hookups” section.

where the water
connection will be made.
2. Check that the direct
6" (15.2 cm)
wire reaches to the front
right of opening where
the electrical connection
will be made.
If the water line and the direct wire reach far enough into the
opening, proceed to the next section “Install the drain hose.“ If they
do not reach far enough, follow the steps under “Prepare cabinet
opening where there are no existing utility hookups.”
2. Connect drain hose to waste tee or waste disposer using one of
the following methods:
• Option 1, Waste disposer – with air gap
• Option 2, No waste disposer – with air gap
• Option 3, Waste disposer – no air gap*
• Option 4, No waste disposer – no air gap*
*an air gap is recommended
Helpful Tip: To reduce the vibration of the hose, keep the hose
away from the floor and the edge of the hole where it passes through
the cabinet.
Option 1:Waste disposer – with air gap:
1. Remove the disposer knockout plug. Cut end of drain hose if
needed (do not cut ribbed section).
2. Attach drain hose to air gap with large spring-type clamp. If the
drain hose was cut, use a 1-1/2” to 2” (3.8 to 5 cm) screw-type
clamp*.
3. Use a rubber hose connector* with spring or screw-type clamps*
to connect air gap to disposer inlet.
This connection must be before the drain trap and at least 20” (50.8
cm) above the floor where dishwasher will be installed.

9. Turn both front leveler legs to the same
height.
If the minimum cutout height is less than 34”
(86.4 cm), the rear wheels can be removed
for additional clearance. This will allow the
dishwasher to fit into a 33-7/8” (86 cm)

high cutout, but the dishwasher will be more
difficult to move into position. If the wheels are removed, protect
the floor when moving the dishwasher.
If you have built-up floors
1. Measure height of opening from
underside of countertop to builtup floor. If the height is at least
33-3/4” (85.7 cm), the dishwasher
will fit into the opening without

Failure to do so can result in back or other injury
1. Grasp the sides of the dishwasher at the edges of the door panel.
2. Tilt dishwasher backwards on wheels and move dishwasher close
to cabinet opening. Do not push on the front of the panel or on the
console—they may dent.
3. If dishwasher has a power supply cord, insert power supply cord
into hole cut into cabinet.
If using direct wire, check that it is on the right front side of
opening.
4. Check that water line is on the left side of opening and drain
hose is near the center of the hole in the cabinet.
5. Slowly move dishwasher completely into cabinet opening. Do not
kink or pinch copper tubing, drain hose,
power supply cord or direct wire between
dishwasher and cabinet.
Helpful Tip: Once the dishwasher is in
position, you may have to
support the front of the dishwasher by
raising, lowering or shimming front feet.

6. Remove cardboard from under dishwasher.
NOTE: It is all right if dishwasher fits tightly into cabinet opening.
Do not remove insulation blanket —the blanket reduces the sound
level.
Level the dishwasher
1. Align front of dishwasher door panel with cabinet doors. You
may need to adjust alignment to be even with your cabinets.
Helpful Tip: Prop up one side of frame to hold dishwasher up off
floor when adjusting front legs.
2. Check that leveling legs are firmly against the floor.
3. Close and latch the door, and place level against the front panel.
Check that dishwasher is plumb. If needed, adjust leveling leg or
add shims under rear wheel until dishwasher is plumb.

Helpful Tip:
• Select the proper size twist-on connectors to
connect your household wiring to 16-gauge
dishwasher wiring.
• Insert wire ends into twist-on connector.
Do not pre-twist bare wire.
• Twist connector.
• Gently tug on wires to be sure both are
secured.
