The green is the ground wire. Attach it to the screw inside the junction box.

Amana DW adb1100aww New install won't start


have you checked to see if the white and black (or hot) wires are reversed.
It is very common to have this problem.
some plug wires have a smooth edge and a rippled side, one wire per side and the ground wire is green or in the middle.
if there is a side that has a rippled edge make sure that it is on the black wire of the dishwasher and the white to the smooth side.
I remember this in this way: if i hook the power side to an oscilloscope it would show a wave pattern and if I do the same with the common or white wire then it is smooth a straight line

How to hook up


Yes it only uses hot water. There should be a 3/8 fitting to hook up a water line. The drain hose connects to the air gap on the sink and when hooking up the power if there is no power cord be sure to hook up the black to black, white to white, and green to the green or bare wire.

How do I test a used dishwasher before I install it?


Hi knowone has ever asked me that before but it can be done if you spend a little time You need to be near a power 120 volts plus water and a drain , if you look under your sink in your kitchen on the hot water valve you should be able to connect into the hot water , if you plan on hooking it up at this sink then go ahead and splice in a tap for water for the dish washer on the hot water you should buy a shut off type valve most times they use 3/8 , run the hose from the new water valve to the water valve on the dish washer then you need a drain that is the easy part run the drain hose from the dish washer right into your sink ,next you need power , down where the wires connect you will see a black wire and a white wire , if you have a old extention cord around that you can cut leave the end on that plugs into the outlet on the wall but cut the other end off , next open up the end of the cord to see the wires , if it has a green you dont need to use this for a quick test only if you want to , but hook up the black and the white then you should be all set to try it If i can help any more get back to me Frank

The power cord in my install kit for the Kenmore 1344 dishwasher, isnt color coded. The power cord is 3 leads of course but the manual says nothing about which lead to connect to the color coded wires...


It does not matter what lead goes to the white or the black. You just need to make sure that you have the ground in the right place. If it is a flat cord then the center wire is the ground and if it really matters the lead on the right of the ground is the hot/black.

Hi,
The Black wire is the Hot or positive wire and the White wire is the nuetral or negative wire.
The green wire gets hooked to the frame or any metal part of the dishwasher...usually there is a green screw inside the little box where the wires hook up

There are cut wires and no cord for the second hand dishwasher i purchased and I need to find out what wires I am connecting and where


There should be a small junction box under the dishwasher behind the front toe panel. There should be three wires:

BLACK - HOT (120VAC)
WHITE - NEUTRAL (0 VAC)
GREEN - GROUND

You can purchase a three conductor power cord from any hardware store. A 3-prong power tool power cord works the best, as they have a durable outer sheathing and have good current handling properties.

Simply match the corresponding colors (black to black, white to white) and ground the green wire to the chassis. There should be a ground lug somewhere to connect it to.

Use wire lugs when splicing wires together and use the wire strain relief (if equipped) on the junction box. The strain relief is located at the point where the wire enters the junction box and keeps the wires from inadvertently being pulled.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

I have a Kenmore Diswasher model. 587.15103801 - My question is - can I wire a 3 prong power cord to it? If so, what do I need to purchase? Thanks


The dishwasher SHOULD have a three prong cord, or be hardwired using using a 3 conductor electrical wire capable of handing 15 to 20 amps (12 or 10 gauge wire). If you desire to use a cord with a plug on the end, you can purchase a power tool replacment cord rated at 15 amps or higher from the hardware store (I have found power tool replacement cords to be very durable). Make sure you purchase one that is long enough the accomodate pulling the dishwasher out from under the counter, if required. The power cord is installed in a junction box behind the lower toe panel that's located directly below the door. The wire color coding is as follows:

BLACK - HOT (120 VAC)
WHITE - NEUTRAL (0 VAC)
GREEN - GROUND

Match the color wires with the wires inside the dishwasher junction box and twist together using wire lugs. Attach the ground wire to the appropriate ground lug.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
