Dishwasher - Locating the Water Shut-Off Valve
The hot water line in your home which supplies water to the dishwasher is usually located under the sink next to the dishwasher. There should be a hand shut-off valve on the water line going to the dishwasher. There may be several shut-off valves under the sink but the dishwasher shut-off valve should be on a pipe or hose going through the cabinet into the dishwasher.
To make sure the valve is fully open: Turn the handle counter-clockwise (to the left).
To make sure the valve is fully closed: Turn the handle clockwise (to the right).
We always recommend installing a hand shut-off valve on the water line to the dishwasher in an easily accessible location. This provides for quick access should there ever be a leak or service need.
