Electrical Hazard

Before installing the dishwasher, remove the house fuse or open the circuit breaker. If permanently connecting the dishwasher, be sure the power is isolated and the dishwasher unplugged.

Grounding Instructions
This appliance must be grounded. In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding 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-grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

WARNING - Improper connection of the equipment-grounding 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 grounded.

If the dishwasher is installed as a permanently connected appliance: GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS - This appliance must be connected to a grounded metal, permanent wiring system, or an equipment-grounding conductor must be run with the circuit conductors and connected to the equipment-grounding terminal or lead on the appliance.
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.
