It is supposed to pump the water vertically (Less than the height of the machine) into a standpipe which has an air break in it due to the standpipe being bigger than the outlet hose.

Or into a connection in the waste trap of the sink, which has the same action

That is there to stop the machine being syphoned out

If the hose is laid flat the water will run out due to gravity and will never fill correctly.

How the water runs away after it has been discharged to your standpipe is down to your plumber getting the pipe falls correct

If there is no fall then the water will back up in the pipe if there is any restriction such as a level spot on the pipe

What is a subsystem of a dishwasher? It is for one one of my classes and I haven't found a subsystem

A dishwasher, like any household appliance or machine, as a whole, has the job of washing dishes. It does that by combining subsystems, or subassemblies.

A dishwasher consists of a box with a drive motor and associated controls, a pump, a heater (unless it a Bosch, etc) unit and water valves.

The motor and electronics are one (sub)system. The pump is another (it handles the water) as it uses valves and sensors to determine how much water to allow into the dishwasher, and when finished, pumps out the dirty water.

Most dishwashers also employ a small 'garbage' disposal or waste grinder as well in the bottom, to grind any debris small enough so it can get pumped out to waste.

The motor drives the washing arm, and it can only start once a sufficient amount of hot water (some are self heating) has been inducted into the system. The plumbing in the dishwasher routes the water to the washer arm (that rotated in the bottom and top). IN some instances water pressure alone is sufficient to spin the spray arms.

So for your purposes, you can say that the electronics (motor, etc) is one system and pump is another system. Or subsystem. They all have to work together to accomplish the task of washing dishes.

How to hook up the water to the dish washer

Your dishwasher has a water line in and a waste water tube on the back of it. You need a source water line where the DW is at and you simply connect it. The drain hose needs to hook up to a waste water trap on a sink or somewhere. Power it up and that should be all there is to it. I suggest that you hook it up with a couple of extra feet of hose though incase you need to pull it out for service or something. FYI..

Haier washer the water goes in and goes straight out through the drum into waste pipe

There is an exit hose behind the machine. This hose should be approx 3 feet above ground level, you may find a water mark behind the machine; then it goes down into the sink or standpipe in the wall. This hose holds the water, your pump pumps it over the height as & when required; the hose is never let loose at floor level.

How high can the outlet hose from a Kenmore Series 90 washing maching pump. Location is in basement with not drain but could get to basement window and then to drain. Window approx. 3 feet from top of...

The pump should be able to move waste water 3 feet above the washing machine but if that fails, then you could always buy a sewage ejector set up ( plastic barrell with internal pump and water level sensor) . Those have a highjer pupm head pressure and would be able to move water up a column further than a washing machine pump. IN all probability, you will be ok at 7 - 9 feet from floor.
Hope that helps..

What height is your drain spout? The pipe should be about 3 feet up and then down into the sink or wall standpipe; there should be a water mark behind the machine Your pump pumps the waste water OVER this height. At present your drain pipe must be lying at floor level, which is not correct.

Washer takes in water and immediately drains it out

See that there is enought pressure from your inlet pipe into the machine, maybe someone closed the wall valve. Plug off the wall socket. Check the filters on both sides of this pipe, clean out. Also clean the inlet into machine.

You said the washer will not fill, but is it coming in, the water that is. If this is the case, your outlet pipe from the bottom of the machine is at the wrong height, it should be at about 3 feet above the ground level; your pump pumps this waste water OVER this height. Check these out.
