Question about Dishwashers
How do i connect the hot water supply line and the drain line
You will need to get a 3/8 braided steel dishwasher supply line. Thic will hook up towards the front on the left side to a dishwasher elbow. A very small crecent wrench works nicely. At the other end, will need to be supplied by kitchen hot water supply. If you have a compression water stop, you will need to get one with two 3/8 outlets one to sink and one to dishwasher. Now the drain will hook up to bottom of dishwasher go through wall to under sink area, straight up as high asit can go and strap it there, then down to garbage disposal, or pipe with waste connection for wishwasher.

The supply line connects to the brass screw in fitting on the bottom left corner under the washer.
When you buy a dishwasher supply line kit, it will come with any adaptors needed. Unless you are using the steel braided line you will need to use teflon tape on the threads of the line. If you are using the SS line kit, you will only need tape on the adaptor.
Here is a pick of the line and the adaptor.
The drain line is attached with a typical hose clamp like this.
It is attached to the stub out on the garbage disposal if a GD is installed. If not then it is attached to the stub out on the drain pipe for the sink, like this.
