Question about Dishwashers
Our 8 years old Favorit shows drain block. I have disconnected the drain hose to see if the water come out through gravitation. it does only to a limited degree. I then try to blow in to the hose to see if air comes in and nothing. If I **** in the hose I can create pulling force to drain it completely.

SOURCE: Dishwasher won't drain?
HI. check the following areas for fualts.
1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.
If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.
Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.
2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.
Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.
4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.
Replace the motor if defective.
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

SOURCE: The ribbed drain hose on
These drain hoses are universal types except that the connectors may differ. The different types of these hose - flexible ribbed- are found in almost all the stores that cater to pneumatic products.
Also you can source the original type from any dishwater/washing machine spares parts stores.
The hose can be removed after releasing the holding clamps and releasing the hose-- pull out .
Since these hoses are slightly flexible they are pushed into the drain ports and clamped.
you can get a good picture of this if the washer is moved forward.
Also take the hose along so that the store will recognize the product and make it easier.
In most cases the hoses are cheaper if they are sourced from the tubing shops than from the dishwasher spares store.
