For service convenience, a shut-off valve (not supplied) should be installed in the supply line in a readily accessible
location (such as beneath the sink). In order to prevent heat damage to the fill valve, all solder connections must
be made before the water line is connected to the dishwasher.
The dishwasher should preferably be connected to a hot water supply. If a cold water supply is used, the washing
times will be longer. Flush the supply line prior to connecting it to the intake line of the dishwasher. It’s important that
the water supply line and the shut-off valve have a sufficient flow volume - at least 3 gallons (12 liters) per minute must
be able to pass through the line. The water pressure should be 18-176 PSI.
NOTE: Be sure to run the PEX tubing through the hole to the sink compartment before moving the dishwasher
into place.

DRAIN
ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
A rubber drain hose (7/8” [2.2 cm]) is provided with the dishwasher which is connected to the back of the unit to form a
high loop. The access hole for the drain line should be 1 1/2” (3.8 cm) at a minimum of 20” (50.8 cm) from the floor. If
the hose provided is not long enough, extend it with a 7/8” (2.2 cm) copper tube. Do not use any fittings anywhere in
the drain line that are less than 7/8” (2.2 cm) ID. If the drain line is going to be connected to a waste disposer, be sure
to remove the knockout or plug from the fitting on the disposer before connecting drain line. The dishwasher drain
hose has a factory installed check valve. Do Not add an additional check valve. NOTE: The end of the drain hose is
1/2” (1.3 cm), but is adjustable to 7/8” (2.2 cm), 3/4” (1.9 cm), or 5/8” (1.6 cm). If the drain connection is larger than
1/2” (1.3 cm), the hose can be cut to fit the connection.
Electrical and grounding connections must comply with the applicable portions of local electrical codes. WARNING!
Disconnect the electrical power supply and place a tag at the disconnect switch indicating that you are working on the
circuit. The dishwasher comes with a 4’ (1.2 cm) electrical cord for 110-120 volts, 15/20 amp supply. This cord should
be plugged into the 110-120 volt outlet located under the sink. If the cord is not long enough or if a hard wire
installation is needed, follow instructions on page 10.
Different ways to connect the drain line:
A. Typical drain connections to sink plumbing before trap (high loop drain).
B. Connection to an air gap, then to the trap.
C. Connection to a waste disposer with air gap.

Removing the Toe Kick Brackets and Guard Plate
(This may only be necessary if a hardware installation kit is used.)
CAUTION: Failure to provide either the proper drain connection height (20” [50.8 cm] above floor level) or a 20”
(50.8 cm) high loop will result in improper draining of the dishwasher, which will cause damage to the dishwasher.
NOTE: The drainage hose can be extended to a maximum length of 10 ft. (3 meters). Joints and jointed tubes, if
any, must have an ID of at least 7/8” (2.2 cm). No part of the drain hose must have a position higher than 35” (88.9
cm) above the floor. The hose must not be drawn straight to a floor well or its equivalent. The hose might then
function as a siphon-emptying the dishwasher. When the installation is ready, open the supply valve and let the
pressure become equalized. Then check that all connections are tight and there are no leaks. The drain hose is
attached to the drain pump and fastened to the back of the unit. The drain hose is fastened to the back of the unit at
the best high loop height. To eliminate potential drain problems, leave this hose in place.

Moving the Machine Into Place
ADJUSTING THE LEVELING LEGS
Position the machine in front of the cabinet
opening. Make the preliminary height adjustment
while the dishwasher is in front of the opening.
Pull out the drain hose to ensure there are no
sharp bends. On the bottom rear of the
dishwasher there is a black ziptie around the
rubber buffer that holds the circulation pump in
place. Cut the ziptie and remove it. Start to feed
the water, electric,and drain lines into position.
Make sure you’ve put the protective slides on the
rear legs to prevent damaging the floor when
sliding the unit into place. Gently slide the unit
into the dishwasher opening. As you do this, feed
the drain line into the drain line opening. Also
feed the electrical and water lines to right front of
the dishwasher.
NOTE: It may be necessary to install a wood trim above the dishwasher if the standard toe space is maintained or
you can raise the dishwasher to fit using the leveling legs.
Adjust the feet of the dishwasher with a 1/2” (1.3 cm) wrench to fit the opening. The dishwasher may have a maximum
inclination of 2 degrees without affecting its performance.
When the legs are adjusted, tighten the locking nuts to the base pan.
