1 Place the dishwasher on the countertop and level it. Situate it in a place that is close to the sink for drainage purposes. Choose a location that has an 18-inch height clearance under cupboards; otherwise the dishwasher will not fit. Locate the four screws under the dishwasher and adjust them so that it is level with the countertop.

2 Remove the sink faucet's aerator and replace it with the one provided in the portable dishwasher's packaging. Connect the quick-connect adapter to the faucet with pliers. Once the new aerator is in place, you can easily pop the quick-connect adapter on and off whenever you desire.

3 Connect the dishwasher to the water supply. Attach the straight end of the inlet hose to the back of the dishwasher and the bent end of the inlet hose to the faucet. Tighten both ends securely with pliers.

4 Place the drainage hose in a drainage standpipe or the sink. Use the plastic you-bend provided with the dishwasher to bend the drainage hose into a you-shape on one end. Set the bent end of the hose into the drainage pipe or sink. Connect the other end of the drainage hose to the drain port on the back of the portable dishwasher using the clip provided.

5 Turn on the water faucet. Check the inlet hose and drainage hose for any leaks by testing both the hot and cold water before operating the machine.

6 Plug the dishwasher into a grounded outlet and load it with dishes. Watch the first load carefully to make sure everything works properly.

It is easier to install a countertop dishwasher then it is to install a traditional under the sink dishwasher. A countertop dishwasher has not been designed to be installed permanently so that you can maintain the mobility for replacement and cleaning the countertop when ever needed.

Some of the Countertop dishwashers are highly compact and fit into any tap. It is important that you connect the dishwasher with a water input and a water outlet which will allow the dirty water to drain out. The outlet should be connected to the drainage system through a hose.

Make sure that you buy a countertop dishwasher of the diameter which is right for your kitchen and you can accommodate in the space that you have on your countertop. It is always a good idea to place you countertop dishwasher right next to the sink for waste drainage to be easy and the faucet is hook-up with ease.
