The controls on these models are designed to be hidden by
your countertop. Align the dishwasher as shown in Figure
T. Leave a 1/2" minimum gap between the underside of the
countertop and the top of the dishwasher door as shown in
Figure W.
Note: If the drain hose gets trapped behind the unit it can
prevent the controls from being hidden by the countertop.
Note: If this dishwasher is replacing an existing dishwasher, the
old countertop bracket screw holes may not be in the correct
position to accept a top-control model. New holes may be
required.
Tip: The leveling legs can be used to increase or decrease
the amount of gap between the controls and the countertop
affecting the visibility of the controls.
