Nowadays, a dishwasher can hardly be called a luxury. After all, such a device not only saves us from every day and long washing dishes but also saves water consumption. When washing dishes in the machine, heating is much cheaper than heating running water from the tap. All models of dishwashers can be divided into built-in and compact.
After buying such equipment, many users immediately have the question of how to install the dishwasher correctly. Despite the type of its design, all models of machines have the same wiring diagram. Installation of the machine also does not depend on its manufacturer or its functions. Installation of small-sized machines is quite simple. All you need to do is put the device on the kitchen cabinet and drain it into the sink. The water supply to the device is carried out using a common highway.
The connection of the built-in machine and a separately installed dishwasher are very similar to each other. Before starting the installation, make sure that the machine is level. If not, use the key to adjust all its legs horizontally. The distance of the device to the drain pipe should not exceed one and a half meters. If the distance is greater, the pump will be overloaded, which will soon cause the machine to fail. The machine, which is built into the kitchen furniture, must be securely attached to its walls. Of course, it is better to entrust such work to a qualified specialist from Chula Vista Appliance Repair Company, who will competently make all the connections. Otherwise, after connecting the equipment yourself, you may encounter knocking out plugs and leaks.
Installation of the dishwasher begins with the stage of connecting it to the drain. The drain pipe should go into the siphon, which is located under the sink. For this purpose, special siphons are used, which have fittings directed to the top. It is on these fittings that the drain hose of the dishwasher is attached. Since the fitting has an upward direction, the water from the sink can not get into the machine. The hose should be placed no lower than 60 cm above the entrance to the sewer. The higher it is, the faster the pump will drain the wastewater from the device.
The drain hose can be led directly into the sewer, using a special tee for pipes, into which the sleeve is first inserted, and the hose for the machine is inserted into it. As for connecting the machine to the water supply, only the cold water supply is performed. Between the water system and the machine, you need to put a water filter, which will prevent various particles from the water supply to the machine.
And the last step is to connect the equipment to the network. In order to connect the machine to the mains, you need to run a separate power line and make grounding. This will help protect your appliances from short circuits.
