Installation we have two loose white acordian type hoses, one attached to the side of the unit and the other comes from underneath. Do we attach both hoses to the drainage under the sink, and if not where does the hose go that does not go to the drainage under the sink?

Re: 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.

Re: installation

The loose hose under the dishwasher connects to the hose on the side of the dishwasher. the hose on the side is looped around is acting as a anti-siphon to control the dishwasher from draining as it's filling.there should have been a clamp with the dishwasher to connect the hoses.

Many people realize the dishwasher connects to a little hose on the sink, it is called an air gap. However, many people wonder " The air gap is there to prevent the water from being siphoned out of the dishwasher. When water flows through the drain hose, it creates a suction on the water still in the dishwasher. The air gap, makes a hole for air to get in. That way, the water only leaves the dishwasher when it supposed to, when it is pumped out. Another benefit of an air gap is that if the drain hose becomes clogged, the dishwasher can still pump out the water. Instead of flowing through the hose, as it should, it can flow out the air gap and into the sink.
The dishwasher's drain line usually connects to an air gap mounted at the countertop level on the sink. The drain line continues from the air gap to either the garbage disposer or directly to the sink drain. If the drainage hose between the air gap and the drain is partially or completely blocked, wat

Can you check the exhaust water hose by looking straight down the drain in the sink where a dishwasher exhaust hose is normally attached, to see if you have any water leaving the dishwasher at all? Can you remove the exhaust hose, and put in a pan to see if you can get some water to flow out? I am guessing you may have a clogged exhaust hose, or clogged sink attachment on the sink drain. After lot of use, debrea will build up in the exhaust hose. You might also consider cleaning the inlet valve filter, the collect sand from the water supply, and can clog after many year of service.

Works fine, cleans properly, last couple of times has big puddle of water over floor, seems to be coming from underneath machine. checked filters, hoses etc and all ok. machine is approx. 8 yrs old..

one some models such as kenmore or hotpoint, the door seals go bad (the black rubber things in the corner at the base of the door)
On others such as tappan and frigidaire
the little corner diverters come away from the base (they are semi clear plastic and
attach to the bottom of the dishwasher in each corner near the door).

Also if you have done a lot of dishes by hand the soap may accumulate in the sump of the dishwasher and cause it to oversuds causing soapy water to leak out the front.
If you use regular dish detergent instead of dishwasher detergent, this will occur as well.

Last thing to look at, especially on hotpoint, ge or kenmore is the shaft that enters the
side of the pump which is attached to a triangle shaped piece of plastic. The seal often
fails there and will require pump replacement as it is molded into the case of the unit.

Water will not drain from unit.

If you have recently installed a new disposer under the sink make sure the plug in the disposer was removed where the hose attaches. If not It could be a blockage in the drain hose or a kinked hose. Some models have a check valve where the drain hose attaches to the dishwasher that can get blocked. If you can hear the drain pump running your more than likely looking at some sort of blockage. Hope this helps

Dishwasher won't pump out waste water. Pump is good(checked ok, it runs when voltage is applied to it)

Hi mc_ionics,

Firstly, do the following:

- Make sure the attached wires to the Drain Pump is installed firmly, when re-installing the drain pump.
- Inspect the Drainage hose at the back for kinks. - If any, straighten the hose
- Open the unit, and at the bottom sump check the small drain pump area for any foreign object that may be obstructing it.You can remove the filter, as well as the metalish sieve underneath it, check the sump underneath near the drainage holes, make sure nothing is obstructing the flow out of the machine from there.

If still not draining, check power from the PC Board to the Drain Pump, you may have a faulty PC Board

Kind Regards :-)

We're trying to install our dishwasher and there is a 3rd hose attached on the side. It appears to be a drain of some kind, part number, we think, printed on it is FRU 10967 19/07/04 08:33 Can you tell...

I just installed my Bosch dishwasher a few days ago and wondered about the same thing. The instructions for hooking up water supply and drain lines did not mention this third hose at all.
However, 'the third hose' (which appears open on the lower end, but loops up high) is attached at the other end at a point directly on the other side of the dryer wall from an opening inside the dishwasher, described elsewhere as a vent (somewhere in the manual we are advised not to place anything such that the vent could be blocked). I'm assuming that when water is pumped to the drain, since the chamber is otherwise sealed, there has to be an opening for it to breathe in air to replace the evacuated water, and conversely to allow air to leave when new water is taken in; thus both vacuum and pressure build-up are avoided.
So, although this third hose is not involved in installation, a little foresight by the manual writers would have had them mention it and put our minds at ease. Maybe we are not supposed to be curious....

After i start my l g dishwasher it stops and flashes l e on the start button , and the water wont drain

The LE error is saying that water is "leaking" out of the dishwasher before it is being intentionally pumped out. If you have checked underneath the unit for a real leak, then 99% of the time, your problem is related to a law of physics.

Follow the drain hose from underneath the dishwasher over to where it connects to the drain (normally the disposal) I bet you will find that the dishwasher is connected directly to that drain and not connected through an air gap. The hose is probably routed along the floor with no high point.

The drain hose must have a high point in it somewhere in the run so that a natural siphon does not get created and "pulls" the water out of the dishwasher while it is running.

Best way to fix it is to install a dishwasher air gap (almost free at any real hardware store) but you can also lift the hose and attach it somewhere to (under) the counter. That will prevent the LE error.

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher does not drain

Some Kenmore DW have a check valve attached to the sump that may have a blockage. Remove toe panel, look for a long, white, plastic fitting attached the front, right side of the sump. Remove the drain hose from the valve. Unscrew the valve from the sump and inspect for debris inside the valve.

Dish washer install

one hose should be smaller and the other hose should be considerably larger.

the smaller hose is the water in (attach to the hot water side of your faucet, and the other hose is waste out (hooks to the drain or sink disposal).
