Dishwasher drain hose.

The builder hooked up the dishwasher drain hose directly to the sink drain. Should it be hooked through the dishwasher? If so why?

Its ok to hook to the sink drain but an air gap should be inline with it to prevent sink water from backing into the dishwasher.

Can the dishwasher hose intake be rotated so that the hose does not have to loop around the disposal?


You can cut off the dishwasher hose so it is shorter, but that might not give correct end for connecting to drain tailpiece. See if end of dishwasher hose has built-in fitting.

They sell universal connections that fit both the dishwasher hose and the drain tailpiece... but check what is available at hardware before cutting off dishwasher hose.

The drain tailpiece can be taken apart and then rotated so dishwasher hose can come from different direction. This requires removal of p-trap, and cleaning of each part before reassembly.

If this is double sink, the disposal can be moved to other side, and sink basket with tailpiece move to other side.

Following link has step by step tips for taking apart P-trap and reassembling tubular drain pipes so they don't leak: and installing disposal if you switch sides on double sink

Dishwasher not draining completely after new garbage disposal installed


If you hooked up the drain to the disposal directly there is no vent in the line. Use the air vent on the sink to connect the dishwasher drain hose. If there is no air vent, then you'll have to install one in the sink.

My dishwasher isn't draining. The garbage disposal is hooked up separately.


Is sink drain line clogged?
Disconnect drain line at sink tailpiece and lower down to see if water inside dishwasher drains.
Call serviceman to clear clog in dishwasher hose, or repair dishwasher pump motor.

When I try to drain my dishwasher, it fills up my sink. when the sink drains, my dishwasher fills


Sounds like you have your dishwasher drain connected directly to your drain under sink and you have a blocked drain. It will function normally once you have removed the block in the sink drain but you should have a the dishwasher drain hose hooked up to a air gap to prevent harmful bacteria from getting in to the dishwasher again in the future. Hope this helps.

Built in dishwasher. Dishes are clean but leaves the interior dirty. Have cleaned it with dishwasher cleaner, then a few weeks later its grubby again.. This has just been happening in the last few...


Check your drain hose to make sure no water from the sink is draining back into the dishwasher.
If it is,re-hook the drain hose up high under the sink.
Next.
Start the dishwasher without dishes or detergent.
Once the fill and was cycle begins,open the door and por in 1 quart of WHITE vinegar and resume the wash cycle to completion.

We bought a new dishwasher because the old one wasn't draining all the way. Same problem with the new one?


The pump is a motor which runs in one direction to spray water in the dishwasher to clean and the opposite direction to drain the water. The problem could be from a clog or kink in the drain hose. Several years ago the drain line would connect to the sink garbage disposal. If the garbage disposal is not draining or the dishwasher connection to the garbage disposal is restricted or clogged the dishwasher will not drain. Under the sink, look at the garbage disposal to see if a rubber hose is connected at the side of the disposal unit. If a hose is connected to the side of the disposal, remove the hose clamp and check for any restrictions from garbage in the inlet or hose. You can use a screwdriver to clean the fitting to the garbage disposal and a wire hanger to free any restrictions in the hose. If the dishwasher does not connect to the garbage disposal it should connect to the sink trap. This is more common with new dishwashers because they have built-in disposals. Disconnect the drain hose from the sink trap and the dishwasher and look for a clog at the sink connection. The dishwasher inlet should have an angled piece of plastic or metal facing downward to prevent the waste from the dishwasher from spraying up into the sink. Do not get to aggressive with the cleaning in order to prevent breaking the angled piece of plastic or metal. Look for any kinks in the hose and try to run water through the hose, but do not use the sink which you removed the drain line from or it could leak under the cabinet. If you see a bad kink replace the hose with a new one. I hope this works and you find the problem without a great deal of time or trouble.

Can i connect my Hoover HD73M Dishwasher to a cold feed?


First off, you need a hot water feed line for your dishwasher, not cold water

Secondly, if you have a garbage disposal installed on your sink you can connect the dishwasher drain hose to the side port on the garbage disposal. That's what that little port is for anyway. If you do have a garbage disposal and hook the dishwasher hose to it then make sure you take a hammer and screw driver and knock out the little plastic plug that's inside the garbage disposal port before hooking up the hose to it, if you don't you'll flood your kitchen.

If you don't have a garbage disposal on your sink, then you're going to have to replace a piece of your sink's drain piping with a wye (Y) tailpiece. The tailpiece has a small branch that comes off it to where you can connect the dishwasher drain hose.

Regardless of which way you hook up the drainage and water lines, make sure you test out the work you did by running the dishwasher and keeping an eye on it. I can't tell you the number of times i've seen people hook up stuff like this and not test it and then when they go to use the dishwasher it floods the kitchen..... usually when people are sleeping at night. Test your work.

Water is leaking into the dishwasher when it was not on. The water is really dirty and fills over time. How do I make it stop? It is not on automatic or on at all.


Hi, The water is dirty, do you think it is water draing back into the d/w from the sink? You need to raise the dishwasher drain hose that hooks up to the sink. Make sure the highest point of the drain hose is over the connection where the drain hose hooks to.
If it was fresh water filling the dishwasher, the water would be clean.
Please let me know if this helps you at all or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

I would put the dishwasher on its back so you can see underneath to check the fill and drain hose to make sure there not damaged in any way to cause it to leak. if it all looks good under there return it upright and remove the front lower kick panel grab a flashlight and start the dishwasher. you shoud be able to see a leak and where it is comming from. its possible it could be from the hose the inlet valve the pump and motor assembly or the plastic tub itself. good luck

Have a trouble: dish-washer will not drain.


I just moved into a new house and builder had provided a dish washer drain just below my kitchen drain line.

DIsh washer install was done by me, every thing worked out OK except dish washer would not drain after a wash cycle.

Cause: drain provided by builder was blocked and needed a circular small cut before mounting drain hose over it.
