Is it that you cannot reach them? If so, pull the machine out enough to where you can get to those legs from the side and adjust them that way, then push it back in. There's also a 'kick plate' that can be removed allowing you more wiggle room to get back there with a wrench. Good luck!

Can you adjust the height of the KID60B14 dishwasher?

Hello Jane!

Remove the bottom kick plate on the front of your unit. There should be screw-adjustable legs on each front corner with a toothed wheel. Find a lever and suitable jack point on the frame to raise the unit to desired height and if the adjustment legs are not "frozen" you should be able to turn them with your fingers.

If they won't turn easily, apply some light oil or WD-40 and let it work on the corrosion for a few minutes and try again. If the adjusters are jammed, you may need pliers to turn them.

You may also go straight to pliers without raising the unit first, but the adjustments are more difficult since you are lifting the entire unit.

Avanti calls for a cabinet height of 34 1/2". However, the dishwasher is only 32 1/4" tall. What do you do to fill the gap of 2 inches at the top?

you don't fill the gap. There needs to be some clearance for the door to be able to swing open without contacting the underside of the counters. You can always decrease the gap a little by using the adjustable stands on the bottom of the unit. The unit will come with a kickplate that can adjust to multiple heights.

How do I adjust the height of my whirlpool ingregrated dishwasher

Whirlpool dishwashers have 2 rollers on the back leg area. Some had extra holes to raise or lower the rollers somewhat by unbolting the rollers and moving them to one of the other holes. However you want to make sure the dishwasher is installed with a slight tilt front to back with the front higher. If you tilt it the other way it will probably result in a door leak. Make sure front is higher than the back.

I have a LG LD 2140WH diswasher, it only works for 2 min then give a OE error code. what can be wrong

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.

Need to replace this unit ASAP and am having issue finding one that will fit. My R.O. is exactly 34". The existing unit shown was OK because of the 33 - 1/2. Recommendations?

all dish wahers are the same height
the differance your seeing is that
is has been adjusted to fit your cabinet height
with the adjustable legs
all units can be raised by srewing down the legs
and back levelers
make sure when you do your cabinet measurements you take this into account

Raising back legs on Ariston LL65SNA

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.
