Question about Dishwashers
Most dishwashers do not come with a power cord installed. The reason is because some homeowners choose to hardwire the applaince rather than putting a power cord on it and plugging it in. If you plan to use a receptacle, then you need to purchase a three prong power cord. You can find them at any hardware store or appliance parts retailer. The junction box to install it is located behind the lower toe panel directly below the door on nearly all dishwashers. With the toe panel removed, you should see a small silver box. Remove any access screws and open it to find the wires to install the power cord. The color code for installation is as follows:
Black - HOT lead (120 VAC)
White - Neutral (0 VAC)
Green (or Bare Copper) - Ground
Match the wires to the corresponding colors and attach the ground wire to the ground lug on the appliance. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
NOTE: If you are using a receptacle for the dishwasher, it is recommended that it be a dedicated outlet. That is, to prevent overloading, nothing else should be on the same circuit.
