Question about Tappan 18 in. MDR251RE Built-in Dishwasher

No place to install by sink

We have no place to install a dishwasher right by our sink. We really don't want to move a portable all the time. Is it possible to install one across the room if you have access to plumbing and drains in the basement. Thanks

What do I need to hook up my new portable dishwasher to my kitchen sink?


Go to a hardware store and get a Dishwasher Hook-up Kit. It will include a flexible hose along with several adapters. You dishwasher should come with a drain hose. You will also need a 3-wire "pigtail" (an extension cord with no receptacle or socket at the end). Your dishwasher whould have come with installation instructions, but seriously, if you've never done that before (or done similar work before), you should call a professional installer or at least and experienced handy-man.

Dishwasher not draining properly. How much water


Its likely to be one of the following

a) a partially blocked drainhose
b/ the solenoid on the drain valve not opening closing probably
c) a blocked drain valve with a piece of bone or debris

This article should help you:

Dishwasher Basics The main parts of a dishwasher are: Control mechanism
The control mechanism is located inside the door behind the control panel. Many units use a simple electro-mechanical system: a timer determines how long each part of the cycle lasts and activates the proper function at the proper time (such as the detergent dispenser, wash spray and draining functions). Units that are more expensive might have a computerized control system. Modern units also have a door latch that must be closed for the unit to run. Some also have child safety locks. Intake valve
This is where water from the home's water supply enters the dishwasher. The unit's pump doesn't pump the water into the basin – when the intake valve opens, water pressure drives the water into the unit. Pump
An electric motor powers the pump. During the pump cycle, the pump forces water up into the spray arms. During the drain cycle, the pump directs the water into the drain hose. The motor-pump assembly is mounted beneath the basin, in the center of the dishwasher. There are two main types of pump:
  • Reversible
    These pumps switch between pumping water to the spray arms and pumping water to the drain by reversing the direction of the motor. Reversible pumps are usually vertically mounted. dishwasher-11.jpg
    -->Reversible pump

  • Direct-drive
    The motor runs in one direction, so the direction of flow is switched from spray arms to drain by a solenoid that opens and closes the appropriate valves or switches one hose connection to another. Non-reversible pumps are usually horizontally mounted. dishwasher-12.jpg
    -->Direct-drive pump

Dishwashers can be installed in either a portable or a permanent configuration. Portable units have finished sides and top that can be used as a countertop. When not in use, the machine sits in place next to the wall. When it's time to run a cycle, the unit can be rolled on casters over to the sink, where it connects to the faucet and plugs into a nearby outlet. In a permanent installation, the dishwasher goes underneath the existing countertop and bolts into place. Hoses underneath the kitchen sink connect directly to the hot water line and the drain line, and the unit usually plugs in under the sink as well. Both types of installation require a 120-volt grounded line.

GE Triton won't drain completely


Hi Tina! (say Hi to the Family, too)

Your drain hose from the dishwasher (DW) was installed incorrectly after the DW was moved back into place. Good news!!! Easy fix. All it takes is a 5/16" nut driver (or socket) and some vinyl electrical tape.

Look under the sink, you'll see the white drain hose hooked up to (most likely) your disposal. You'll notice that it just kinda slopes downhill 'til it disappears through the cabinet, right? Well, the slope in question is actually the culprit! It's siphoning water from your sink and down into the DW. Everytime you run water in the sink, some of it goes over to your DW instead of down the drain. Go figure, right?

Here's the fix... You have to re-route your drain line to make it have an upside down "J" in it before it connects to the disposal.

Use your 5/16 and loosen the clamp at the disposal and remove the hose. Pull on the hose to get as much slack as you can from the DW and into where you're working. Now route the hose between the sinks (the recessed area there underneath) and THEN into the disposal. Now tighten the hose clamp to secure the hose to the disposal. For extra measure, use your tape to secure the hose to a water line in the back by the water valves.

Seriously easy job, Tina and Family. Maybe 15 minutes.

Can a dish washer be installed in a corner of my kitchen cabinets


It depends on you kitchen layout. If it is small and you need a place to install the dishwasher, the corner is fine. It is no different than placing a sink, wall oven, or refridgerator there. I have done all of the above, and they were not in small kitchens.
