We are trying to install this new dishwasher. In the instruction book it says, "Adjusting the rear feet: using a nut driver 7mm, turn the red plugs found on the lower part of the dishwasher until they are at the required height as shown in the picture below"
1st, there are not red plugs or a place to use a nut driver, and we havent found the right tool to turn the black plastic foot. We have taken part of the metal backing off to see that the foot goes up in there about 6 inches and has two gears, but dont see how to get it to turn.
It doesn't seem like this should be this hard and we are not that familiar with a dishwasher that is all closed up and the water line and conduit run on the floor underneath the enclosed dishwasher cabinet.
our old one was all open underneath.
any help would be appreciated.
The red nut driver plugs are located on the front of the dishwasher under the toe kick. The reason for this is that you need to slide the dishwasher in place before you raise the legs, otherwise you will probably bend or break the adjusting legs. You can raise the legs a little if you need to clear the water and power lines, but be careful when sliding the unit in. If you use a socket wrench with a long extension on the driver it will be much easier.

Usually on the two front feet are adjustable. To set the back feet just pull the machine towards you temporarily raising the back of the unit off the floor, this will make sure the rear feet drop down fully. Then set the back down again and adjust the 2 front feet to level.it.
Hi when adjusting the legs just get it squair with the counter top keeing also level , it is ok if it tips towards the rear a little ,,once you get it set then install the two screws to keep it from moving ,
no,,the seal that fits on the top snaps on from the front and you have to lift top mounting brackets up than kind of work the two brackets back down,,or you can just unclip the mounting bracket .snap top seal than than put brackets back,,clip hold the seal down some,,,those side and top seal are mostly to stop a person from cutting ther hand if unit is pertruding a little...now to make dishwasher reach the counter when legs are down all the way..get to peices of wood the lenght of unit front to back just short of front toe panel..i cant help with thickness because you have to measure the gap from counter,,some times i find that the wooden slats that came with the dishwasher works great...good luck..anymore ideas needed just repost
The possible reasons could be 1. If the drain hose is kinked, water will not drain properly. Kinks will also catch food debris as it passes, clogging drain hose. Straighten any kinks or bends in the hose. Make certain that drain hose does not exceed 10 feet for proper drainage.
2. Check the drain air gap anytime the dishwasher is not draining properly. if the air gap is clogged the unit will not drain. The air gap is not part of the dishwasher. It is located on the sink and attached through the drain hose and garbage disposal. Not all homes are required to have an air gap installed.
3. Food residue or particles can prevent proper draining of dishwasher. Remove bottom rack and check unit for food debris or items that may have fallen into the bottom of the unit. Remove any items or food debris that may be preventing proper drainage.
4. If the unit is not leveled properly, OE Error may occur. Use a level to check sides and top of unit. if the unit is not level, adjust the leveling legs in the front and back (use leveling kit). Also check the mounting brackets. If one is tightened more than the other, it will offset the cabinet.
* Note: To adjust leveling legs on the front, use a 1/4" square drive wrench. Turn clockwise as needed to adjust level. To adjust rear legs, use a standard Phillips head screw driver. On the left side rear, turn the screw counterclockwise to lower the leg and raise the rear. To adjust right side rear, turn the adjusting screw clockwise to lower the leg and raise the rear of dishwasher. Using a level while adjusting the legs will help aid in proper leveling.
1. Make certain the water supply valve is turned
on. Check the inlet hose for any kinks or bends in the line that could
prevent unit from filling properly. Check drain hose for proper
installation. If water drains immediately, unit will display an IE
Error Code. 2. Check the water supply valve and make certain that it is turned on and open fully or this code will display. 3. Check
the inlet valve filter for buildup of mineral deposits. If the inlet
valve filter is clogged it will restrict water flow is restricted into
the dishwasher, resulting the IE Error. Clean filter with small brush
to remove any accumulated mineral deposits that may have accumulated. 4. If
inlet hose is kinked, water flow into the dishwasher, is
restricted resulting the IE Error. Straighten any bends or kinks in the
inlet hose.If the drain hose is not installed
properly and the water drains out of unit, this could cause premature
draining, which results in IE Error Code. In this case it will be
necessary to reinstall the drain hose according the instructions in the
installation guide. 5. If the
water pressure is not 20 - 120 psi, water will not fill properly. This
will result in IError Code. If water pressure is too low, it may be
necessary to call for service. 6. During
winter, parts of the dishwasher that are installed outside may freeze.
Melt the frozen part by soaking a towel in warm water and wrapping it
around the part. This should allow the dishwasher to operate. 7. If
the unit is not leveled properly, the IE Error may occur. Use a level
to check the sides and top of the unit. If the unit is not level,
adjust the leveling feet in the front and back. Use the leveling kit
packaged with the dishwasher. Check mounting brackets. If one is
tightened more than the other, it will offset the cabinet. * Note:
To adjust leveling legs on the front, use a 1/4" square drive wrench.
Turn clockwise as needed to adjust level. To adjust rear legs, use a
standard Phillips head screw driver. On the left side rear, turn the
screw counterclockwise to lower the leg and raise the rear. To adjust
right side rear, turn the adjusting screw clockwise to lower the leg
and raise the rear of dishwasher. Using a level while adjusting the
legs will help aid in proper leveling.
I used to use a thin open end wrench to adjust mine, not sure about your brand/model. It's probably siezed up over time, so you might try to prop the front of the dishwasher up to relieve pressure enough to adjust the legs. If you have a mechanically-minded friend, you might have them take a look- it always helps to have a second opinion.
Under the unit you can access the leveling mechanism for the legs. Try adjusting the levelers so the unit is lowered. Do so a little at a time and try to keep the unit leveled from left to right as you lower it. This may take tension off of the latch and help you get the door open.
