Below is a simple guide to help you install your dishwasher:

Step 1: Remove your old dishwasher. This is when you are going to replace it with a new one. You can reverse the installation steps to remove it.

Step 3: Check if there are holes at the lower portion of the sink cabinet. This is where you can pass through the drain hose, power cord, and water tubes. Drill holes if you don’t find any.

Step 4: Check if there’s a separate valve dedicated for the shutoff of the dishwasher. Remove the old shutoff valve, if there are any. Then place the dishwasher in a dual-outlet type of shutoff valve.

Step 5: put in the new shutoff valve for your new dishwasher. The water supply in your hose should not be turned on initially. You can start disconnecting the sink’s tube for water supply from the shutoff valve.

Step 6: Drain the water using a bucket. Keep unscrewing the valve from source of supply nipple with the use of a wrench. Wrap the nipple’s threads with a pipe-wrap type of tape. Start screwing in the dual-outlet valve onto the nipple fixture.

Step 7: Place air gap on the sink top. Insert it in an unused hole. Secure the air gap from above and use a pair of slip-joint pliers to fasten a locknut. Push the cover into the right place.

Step 8: Place the dishwasher near the opening of the sink cabinet. Insert power cord, supply tube, and hose, into holes. Slowly push in the dishwasher into place and make sure that the connectors are safely placed.

Step 9: connect the dual valve to the supply tube and fasten the flexible supply tube to the second valve outlet. Fasten together with the dishwasher’s inlet. Adjust and tighten with a wrench.

Step 10: use a hose clamp on each end of the short drain hose. Make sure that the clamps are tightened and you should also make sure the longer drain hose is in place.
