Hiya Janet, if it's a built in, it probably has a gap already. It needs a gap for circulation just like any other white goods. Hope i was of some help to you, kind regards.

Kitchenaide dishwasher drains sometimes


You also might have a blockage in your air gap. Your air gap sits on your sink. You generally have the dishwasher drain line going into the air gap and then the other side of the air gap is a hose that attaches to the garbage disposal. If plastic items like stickers from vegetables and fruit go through your pump they can accumulate in the end of the air gap and cause no drain situations.If you do not have an air gap and your drain line is going directly into your garbage disposal then you need to make sure that the drain line sits higher than the dishwasher tub and has a loop in it. This will avoid any water backing back into the dishwasher when you are using your sink. You will need to take the cap off the air gap and look inside.

Hello,
The airgap prevents the water from the sink backflowing into the dishwasher. You could espically if your dishwasher hasa corragated plastic drain hose attach it under the sink so at one point the hose is higher that the nozzle of the disposer it connects to so the hose is still higher that the level of the nozzle and water wont backfill into the dishwasher.

My Bosch dishwasher was not installed with an "


From an internet posting ::

The purpose of the air gap is too prevent back-flow and siphoning, and newer dishwashers (past 20 + years) have back flow preventers built in and looping the drain hose (not a circle, but an upside down u to the top of the cabinet or behind/side of dishwasher) prevents siphoning. Aside form being ugly space wasters the cheap air gaps have a tendency to spit and cough water out.

Water is on the bottom of the top dishwasher


The 2 drains from both tube was connected to the same air Gap causing a back fill. the rubber flapper inside the dishwasher drain outlet is a poor design not strong enough to resist the pressure from the back fill. Don't waste money to buy these flappers for replacement, since they don't work. What you need is to buy a Air Gap with built in divert valve to install at the drain hoses from both tube to the air gap. Youe will have no problem like that afterward.

Water is coming out of air flow gap. I installed a new air-flow gap and all new lines from air flow gap to sink (except the line from dishwasher to air flow gap) and i still have water coming out the air...


The leak in an air gap is usually caused by a clogged sink discharge line. Most of the time this is connected to the garbage disposal and there is food particulate in the drain hole where the dishwasher drain from the air gap to the garbage disposal connects.

Pull the sink connection hose off and clean the hole thoroughly. You can try testing the dishwasher/ air gap by placing the disconnected hose into a bucket during the pump out period. It should not leak. After this test...reconnect the hose to the sink connection.

If it is NOT connected to the garbage disposal then remove the hose and clean out the hole where the connection is made. This is a common problem and easily resolved by the user.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Air gap valve leak for dishwasher


remove the entire drain hose from the air gap and be sure it is clear, also the dishwasher drain should be going to your disposal, if you chose to use the air gap it should be connected from d/w to air gap then to disposal, todays dishwashers dont need an air gap.
