Install the air gap into one of the holes of the sink or drill it additionally in the table top. Connect drainage pipes using fastening, fix them with clamps.

If the air clearance is not required, fix the drain hose clamp at the top of the cabinet to the wall to prevent the reverse stream of the sink. Drink a drainage pipe to the plum inlet and fix the clamp again. In many plums there is a plug at the entrance, so it is sure to take it out first. If there is no drain for the dishwasher, replace the pipe under the sink on the shank with the branches and set drained over the trap under the sink.

Most water supply lines have a diameter of 3/8 inches. Before starting work, you need to make sure that you have everything you need to carry out the correct connection, including guides and sliding hinge. Work is worth starting with Water Turning off and installing double output shut-off valve for connecting the feed line to the hot water dishwasher. One exit on the valve provides hot water for the crane of the sink, and the other joins the technique line.

Such a mechanism will allow you to turn off the water separately from the crane. Connect one end of the supply line to the shut-off valve, and the other to the water intake on the bottom of the dishwasher with a rectangular knee. If necessary, apply a special tape to the outer thread to prevent leakage.

Power lines should be tightened manually, and then make a quarter of turnover using a wrench.

For fully integrated models, the door panel must weigh from 2.5 kg to 8.0 kg. It is important that it is resistant to steam and moisture. You need to make sure that there is a sufficient clearance between the front door panel and the plinth, so that you can smoothly open and close without any obstacles. The magnitude of the required clearance depends on the thickness of the doorbar and the height of the dishwasher.

Before turning on the technique, it is worth checking the electrical plug, water supply and drainage hoses. They should be located either with the left or on the right side of the dishwasher. It is important that the cable and hoses can lend at least 60 cm. Over time, you will need to pull out the equipment from the cabinet for maintenance. This should happen without having to disconnect the hoses and the power cable.

The use of conventional salt will certainly lead to a breakdown of important assemblies.

As for the download, it will take advantage to rinse the dishes in the sink or select the rinsing cycle first in the dishwasher. Provide safety plastic plates. If this is not done, the flow of water can turn them over and fill it with water or, even worse, hit the heating element, as a result of which the dishes are simply melted. Never fold objects to each other. Water splashes will not be able to clean the dish, which is located on top.

Always separate stainless steel and silver cutlery (or silver plated). If these two types come into contact during washing, a reaction may occur.

Bowls and plates go to the bottom shelf of the dishwasher. Make them so that the dirty side is facing where the water splashes is stronger, usually to the center. Pans, frying pan must be tilted down, to achieve the best cleaning result. Flat frying pan and plates will also go to the bottom, they are installed on the sides and behind the rack. Never put them in front of the door – they can block the opening of the dispenser and do not give the cleaning tool to get inside.

Spoons and forks should always be in a basket for cutlery. Forks raise so_ to make the teeth with clean, and the knives are placed in a blade down for safety. Put glasses between the teeth – never on top. Be sure to tilt the cups under the angle so that the stand design does not allow water to accumulate at the base.

Do not overload a dishwasher, it always negatively affects its operation and service life.

If necessary, wash large items manually. Better remove large food remnants before plates load inside the equipment. Cutting boards and large trays are placed on the outside of the lower equipment, if they are not placed in the grooves intended for plates. It is possible to simply wash the cutting boards manually, since the heat from the dishwasher often deforms them.
