Although it works correctly,code in your area may be an issue.
Some building codes require an air gap drainage system for dishwashers.
You could install a air gap device that the dishwasher drain hose attaches to,then another hose from the air gap to the drain.
If it is not a code issue in your area and the drain hose is secured higher than the drain outlet,it is only a recommendation from the H. I.
Contact your local building Inspection department for a clarification.
The way your is connected is the reason plumbing supply stores sell dishwasher "Y" connectors.
An air gap connector installed in-line prevents raw sink water from back-flowing into the dishwasher.
But then,so does a dishwasher drain line secured higher than the drain outlet.
The owners/installation manual describes acceptable drain hookups. Most building departments accept manufacturers recommendations.
Most Home Inspectors are neither certified nor licensed.

Maytag bravo quiet series 300: Stopped at spin:


We have a Maytag Bravo Quiet Series 300 washing machine, the door latch is broken. I have the replacement part ( the locking mechanism) but I need can not figure out how to get the top of the washer to flip up to give me access to top front of the machine to remove the old part and replace it with the new.

How do I flip back the top (not the door) of this machine?

Dishwasher does not drain


The drain runs from the dishwasher into either the side of your garbage disposal, or directly into your sink drain. If it is running to your disposal, pull the hose and make sure that the plug in the disposal (where the hose connects) is knocked out. Some have been known to install them without removing the plug. Either way, pull the hose loose and you can use a compressor to blow through it. If the air comes back through the dishwasher, then you are probably blocked in the main drain.

GE Triton won't drain completely


Hi Tina! (say Hi to the Family, too)

Your drain hose from the dishwasher (DW) was installed incorrectly after the DW was moved back into place. Good news!!! Easy fix. All it takes is a 5/16" nut driver (or socket) and some vinyl electrical tape.

Look under the sink, you'll see the white drain hose hooked up to (most likely) your disposal. You'll notice that it just kinda slopes downhill 'til it disappears through the cabinet, right? Well, the slope in question is actually the culprit! It's siphoning water from your sink and down into the DW. Everytime you run water in the sink, some of it goes over to your DW instead of down the drain. Go figure, right?

Here's the fix... You have to re-route your drain line to make it have an upside down "J" in it before it connects to the disposal.

Use your 5/16 and loosen the clamp at the disposal and remove the hose. Pull on the hose to get as much slack as you can from the DW and into where you're working. Now route the hose between the sinks (the recessed area there underneath) and THEN into the disposal. Now tighten the hose clamp to secure the hose to the disposal. For extra measure, use your tape to secure the hose to a water line in the back by the water valves.

Seriously easy job, Tina and Family. Maybe 15 minutes.

Maytag quiet series 300


Maytag Quiet Series 300. The lights flash in sequence starting from the outside traveling inward. The timer counts backwards from 50 to 1. Then the sequence starts over. and continues over and over. I'm able to clear it when the time reaches 1 or 2. It stays off for a while (3-4 hours) then starts over. I can not clear the countdown until it reaches 1 or 2. After I clear it the dishwasher will work, but until then, no way. This happens with the door open or closed.

Hi jeffwirch,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: You have a maytag quiet series 300. When it is done with any of the cycles in leaves about 1-2 inches of water in the bottom of the dishwasher. You can manually hit the start button twice and it will go through a 2 minute cycle and pump out the water. You have cleaned the filter inside the dishwasher where it drains and have checked the hose to the disposal and it pumps out fine. It just doen't pump itself at the end of the cycle.

It sounds like a bad control board. It's in the top of the door panel. I don't recomend this repair to the average homeowner. You might consider the Repair Directory to find a repairman.
