What is the rubber hose that comes out of the t at the top of the loop of my dishwashers drain hose and what doese it connect to. The old drain hose I am replacing did not have that.

I verified with the model and serial #s to make sure I recieved the correct hose and I did so I don't understand why this hose is different than the original.

This hose?http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00379N7U6/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i01

If so, the black hose is some part of the upgraded siphon. You can not order the old type hose anymore that I know of. So the only solution I know of is to replace your guide assembly which will have a tube on the top for that hose to plug into. There may be a way to 'rig' it to work without the updated guide assembly, but personally I am not taking any chances.

I have to keep cleaning out drain hose filled with food.why?


Question is the drain plumbed to a disposal if so does the drain have a high loop by this does the hose come from the top down to the disposal if not then food from the disposal is migrating into the drain hose

Sep 13, 2014 | Dishwashers

Rough in plumbing diagram


This can vary, but must be higher than the connection to the household drain to prevent the sink/disposer drain water from entering the dishwasher. The best approach will route the dishwasher drain hose up to the underside of the counter top (it is handy to tie off to one of the sink mount clips if they are convenient) and then back down to the household drain connection, often the garbage disposer. Some dishwashers have a drain hose retainer clip on one side of the tank to help form a "high loop" before running the drain hose to the household drain connection. You should *not* ever have more than one (1) high loop as this will impede the dishwasher drain.

Close and latch the door. The dishwasher will not drain if the door is not properly secured.
Press the "Cancel/Drain" button on the dishwasher to start a two-minute drain cycle.
4
Remove the knockout plug in the disposer outlet of the garbage disposal if the dishwasher drains into the disposal. Turn off the water supply and remove the drain hose from the disposal.

8
Check to see if there is a loop in the drain hose. The loop cannot be more than 20 inches above the floor. Disconnect the hose and loop it just above the floor. Reconnect the drain hose.
9
Remove kinks in the drain hose. Always use the new drain hose included with the dishwasher. Do not reuse old hoses.
10
Check the length of the drain hose. The hose should be less than 12 feet long. Replace with a shorter hose, if needed.

My new dishwasher leaks water on the floor about an hour after it is completely finished with the cycle


Make sure the drain hose connected to your garbage disposal is connected well. Also, the hose should loop up near the sink (counter top) before it loops back down about 3 inches below the drain connection on the garbage disposal (or sink drain pipe if you don't have a disposal). This effectively makes a drain trap to avoid any smell from the dishwasher.

Also make sure the door is closed properly and there is no packaging material on the door.

MY GE DISHWASHER IS CONNECTED AND RUNNING, UNIT HA...


hi just try this Is the door open or unlatched?
Make sure the door is completely closed and latched.
Was the selected cycle interrupted before completing?
The Clean light will come on when the cycle is complete. Wait until the Clean light comes on before trying to manually drain dishwasher. Press Cancel/Drain to try and drain the standing water.
Is the water level just covering the pump module?
This is normal. A small amount of water will be seen in the bottom of the sump area at the base of the pump. This is to ensure that the pump seal does not dry out.
Is the dishwasher drain hose connected to a garbage disposal?
For many dishwashers, the drain hose is connected to the disposal and the knockout plug must be removed from the disposer inlet.
Is the drain system blocked?
Run the disposer to clear the drain system.
Do you have an air gap at your sink?
Check to see if the air gap is blocked by foreign material. To clean the drain air gap, follow the cleaning instructions provided by the manufacturer. With most types, you lift off the chrome cover, unscrew the plastic cap, and then check for any soil buildup. Clean if necessary.
Is there a loop in the drain hose less than 20" (50.8 cm) above the floor?
Make sure the drain hose is looped up so that it touches the underside of the counter before connecting to the sink drain or disposer.
Is there a kink in the drain hose?
Replace a kinked drain hose.
Did you reuse an existing drain hose?
Make sure to use the new drain hose that came with the dishwasher.
Is the sink drain clogged?
If the sink is not draining well, a plumber may need to be contacted. Most dishwashers connect to the sink drain. If the sink drain is clogged, the dishwasher can't pump out water.
Is the drain hose too long?
If the supplied drain hose was replaced with a longer one it must be shorter than 12' (3.7m).

When I don't run my dishwasher, somehow water gets inside and gets stagnant.


Check the drain hose where it connects under the sink. The hose must have a high loop that is the hose should be mounted higher than where it connects to the drain. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemaual.html on installing a dishwasher this will show you proper drain hose installation. If your hose does have the proper high loop the drain is probally somewhat clogged and backing into the dishwasher the high loop usually prevents this.

Dishwasher does not drain completely, has standing water after every complete cycle.


  • Some water, usually one to two cups, remaining in the bottom of the tub is normal. However, if water is covering the bottom of the tub, the dishwasher is not draining properly.

  • Check for paper or large objects covering or blocking the sump area in the rear of the tub.

  • Make sure that the right type and amount of detergent is used: Using the wrong type or too much detergent can cause sudsing that can prevent the dishwasher from draining. Only detergent specifically designed for automatic dishwashers such as Electrasol®, Cascade® or Cascade Complete® should be used. If you find suds in the dishwasher.

  • Check disposer plug. If a garbage disposer has been recently installed, it is possible the disposer drain plug was not removed. The drain plug is a plastic piece in the disposer that blocks the hole where the dishwasher hose connects.

    Please consult the Owner's Manual. Download a free copy of the Owners Manual and/or Installation Instructions. In the Installation Instructions, will be the procedure for removal of the drain plug. You may also check with the installer.


  • Be sure the kitchen sink drain is not clogged. The dishwasher typically drains into the kitchen sink drain or a garbage disposer. If the dishwasher drains into a garbage disposer, run the disposer to clear the drain system. Do not put hands into the garbage disposer. Serious injury could result. You should always turn on your garbage disposer prior to running the dishwasher to clean out any food or debris within the drain system.

  • Check drain hose where it connects below the sink for blockage or a kink in the hose. New dishwashers come with a white corrugated drain hose, which should be used. Re-using old, worn out drain hoses may promote kinking and blockage. If it is neccessary to extend the length of the corrugated drain hose, be sure the total length does not exceed 120 inches and the extention used is not kinked or crushed. See your dishwasher installation instructions for details.

  • Check the air gap if one is installed. It could be clogged. An air gap (not part of the dishwasher) is usually located on top of the sink. Some state or local plumbing codes require the use of an air gap between the built-in dishwasher and the drain system of the home. This plumbing device is used to prevent the possibility of back flow into the dishwasher in the event of a clogged drain system. This item is not a part of the dishwasher and, therefore, the dishwasher warranty does not cover costs related to cleaning or repairing a drain air gap.

  • Typical air gaps are easy to inspect and clean. Be sure the dishwasher latch is in the OFF position or unlatched prior to removal of the drain air gap cover. Simply lift off the cover (usually chrome, could plastic) and unscrew or unsnap (depending on type of air gap) the plastic cap below. Remove any material that may have accumulated and replace the plastic cap and chrome cover. This simple procedure should be followed any time the dishwasher fails to drain properly.

    Sometimes perceived "no drain" problems are not "no drain" problems at all, but back flow of water from the sink or some other device into the dishwasher:

  • If you notice dirty water building up over time in the bottom of the dishwasher and do not have an air gap, make sure you have a high drain loop. A high drain loop is created when the drain hose is makes a loop at least 18 inches above the floor. Usually this is accomplished by attaching the drain hose to the underside of the countertop. Without a high drain loop or air gap, dirty water from the sink can flow into the dishwasher. The high drain loop prevents back flow of water from the drain into the dishwasher if an air gap is not installed. View a short video about a high drain loop:

Hotpoint dishwasher


Did you have a dishwasher before? If so, you must have had a sink tail piece with a dishwasher drain coming off the side. For the connection, you may have to get an adapter to fit the end of the dishwasher drain hose to the sink tail piece. Take all pieces to hardware store if necessary to get an adapter which fits. After you connect the drain hose, make sure that the drain hose has a "high loop", meaning that the hose curls up at least 6 inches above the connection point before it goes down again. This is important to keep sink waste from getting back into the diswasher hose if the sink drain backs up.

Installation


It sounds like you have connected your dishwasher to a garbage disposal.

  1. The 2 hoses provided with your dishwasher connect together.
  2. You run the drain hose through a hole in the bottom/back of your cabinet, then up to the top of the cabinet, then connect it to the drain on the garbage disposal. (The reason that you run your drain up to the top of the cabinet is: This is called an air gap, and helps keep a little water in the drain line, which will prevent sewer gases from entering your dishwasher.)
  3. Be sure to knock the plug out of the drain of the garbage disposal. A garbage disposal is designed to work with or without a dishwasher. The plug is in the center of the drain. The best way to knock this plug out is to pull the garbage disposal, and with a flat screwdriver, knock the plug out.
  4. Then remove the plug from the disposal. Reinstall the disposal.
  5. Install the drain hose. The drain hose will connect right up to the disposal using the clamp provided with the dishwasher.
This should help you. If not please attach more info.
