Electrical shock hazard

  • Before installing the dishwasher, remove the house fuse or open the circuit breaker.
  • This appliance must be earthed. In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, earthing will reduce the risk of electric shock by providing a path of least resistance for electric current. This appliance is equipped with a cord having an equipment-earthing conductor and an earthing plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is installed and earthed in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

Improper connection of the equipment-earthing conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician or service representative if you are in doubt as to whether the appliance is properly earthed.

  • Do not modify the power supply plug provided with the appliance - if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician. Do not use an extension cord, adapter plug or multiple outlet box.
  • Failure to follow this advice may result in electrical shock or death.
