Avoiding General Hazards

Do not use the dishwasher until it is completely  installed. When opening 

the door on an uninstalled dishwasher, carefully open the door while 

supporting the rear of the unit. Failure to follow this warning can cause the 

dishwasher to tip over and result in serious injury.

Before installing the “L”-shaped supplied countertop mounting brackets 

(select models), decide which method will be used to secure the dish-

washer into its opening. Once these mounting brackets are installed on 

the dishwasher, removing them is difficult and will damage the mounting 

brackets and the dishwasher.

In some conditions, hydrogen gas can form in a hot water system that 

has not been used for weeks. Hydrogen gas is explosive. Before filling a 

dishwasher from a system that has been off for weeks, run the water from 

a nearby faucet in a well ventilated area until there is no sound or evidence 

of gas.


Temperatures required for soldering and sweating will damage the 

dishwasher’s base and water inlet valve. If plumbing lines are to be 

soldered or sweated, keep the heat source at least 6 inches (152.4 mm) 

away from the dishwasher’s base and water inlet valve.

Removing any cover or pulling the dishwasher from the cabinet can 

expose hot water connections, electrical power and sharp edges or points. 

Handle with care.

Avoiding Electrical Shock/Fire Hazards

Do not allow the electrical and water supply lines to touch.
Do not work on an energized circuit. Doing so could result in serious 

injury or death. Only qualified electricians should perform electrical work. 

Do not attempt any work on the dishwasher electric supply circuit until 

you are certain the circuit is de-energized.
Make sure electrical work is properly installed. There should be no loose 

electrical connections. Ensure all electrical connections are properly
