    Thanks for your reply!


    If i cut the extension to the required length what special parts would i need to use to ensure a leak free fit to the spiggot?  I ask this because at the moment the extension has rubber ends but if i cut it then 1 end will need to attach to the spiggot or to the joining piece but will no longer have the rubber.


    Thank you very much

    Hello



    Is the silicon sealant approach a recognised long term solution? Do i
    apply the silicon direct to the spiggot or to the inside of the pipe?
    Is it best to use this approach at the spiggot end or at the connector?



    Thanks a lot.

    Can I buy an extension waste pipe with moulded ends? When you cut the pipe available from DIY lthe internal diameter of the pipe is too small to fit over the standard waste spigots also the pipe splits at the spigot because the plastic cannot take the stress.

Yes it can. however check that the spigot is not blanked off - they usually are to prevent water gushing out when you empty the sink. remove the blank

Frigidare dishwasher did not spin


  1. Waste Disposal/Sink trap
    • Empty your food waste disposal unit if your dishwasher's hooked up to one. If it's not empty, the old food inside it will back water up into your machine. Check that your sink trap isn't blocked by unscrewing it from the base of your sink if you don't have a food waste disposal unit. Make sure your dishwasher or any other appliances connected to it are not running when you do so.
    Incomplete Cycle
    • You may have opened your dishwasher's door mid-cycle before it's had a chance to drain. Check the progress indicator on your machine's control panel. The structure of this will differ depending on which Frigidaire model you're using, but it should show the point your machine has reached in its cycle. If this is the cause of the problem, close your dishwasher's door and let it finish.
    Drainage Pipe
    • Inspect the drain pipe that runs from your machine to your waste disposal unit or sink. If this is kinked or has been squashed under another appliance or a base unit, the waste water inside your dishwasher will be unable to escape. Check that water can flow through your waste pipe freely.
    Filter
    • Remove the bottom shelf from inside your machine and take out the plate covering the filter area. If you don't rinse your plates before you put them into your washer, food debris could block your filter and stop water from reaching your drainage pipe. You can unblock your filter with your fingers. Turn off your machine's power before you attempt to do so.

Water from the sink fills up the dish washer


I had a similar problem with a washing machine, until I replumbed my waste pipes. My Washing Machine waste pipe was attached to the down pipe just under the sink bowl. I found that the U bend trap was too high and the water level in the U-bend was at the same level as the Washing machine waste pipe was attached. So we has syphoning back into the washing machine. I moved the U bend trap down by 3 inches 7 cm, so now the water leaves the washing machine falls the 3 inches to the water level of the U bend. We now have no more syphoning back into the washing machine.

Hi my machine flashes up with ared light and says 'drain blocked' nothing happens and there is water in the bottom of the machine.


You need to pull out the machine, disconnect the drain hose running out the back of the machine from where it connects to..... (may be the sink trap or into the plastic waste pipe). Check the hose for a blockage and also where the hose connects to. Hope this helps. Alex.

Does the outlet pipe have to go directly into the spigot on the kitchen sink trap? or can it go into a free standing waste pipe /


The plumbing code in your area will specify where you can or can't go with the outlet line. You wouldn't want to attach it to a line where any waste from another source would pass the dishwasher connection line, because the waste could flow back into the dishwasher. That's why you normally route it to the sink or garbage disposal (no concerns about waste from another source getting into the dishwasher line).

Can waste pipe be connected directly into sink waste u-bend


Yes as long as it is before the u bend (pea trap).

If you do not have the connection already there (I assume not). Go to the home improvement store and and ask the plumbing guy for the dishwasher connection. You will also need glue and primer.

Cut into your drain line and remove just enough to fit your new connection. Note that the drain slides about half and inch in at each end so leave enough to do that connection.

Clean and prime the drain lines and new fitting.

Apply glue to fitting.

Insert the new fitting.

Connect your dishwasher per instructions with your unit.

Hope this help. Please rate this solution.

Thanks

Ineed an installation manual for a Whirpool Model DU806cwdb5 dish


You will have 2 pipes and a flex, Or 1 pipe 1 flex and a connection for a inlet pipe.
Connect the gray, larger pipe to the waste out let(drop in a stack or connect to a "spiggot", then connect the smaller pipe to the water inlet, you can usually connect to the washing machines inlet using a "y" piece, remembering to shut off the water before disconnecting. Then plug in the flex and away you go.(remembering to turn the water back on and a quick check for any leaks)

FRIGIDAIRE DISHWASHER & INSINKERATOR DISPOSAL


Sounds like your waste pipes aren,t connected properly.You need a water trap (u bend) between the dishwasher and the main waste pipe from the sink. Any decent plumber should be able to fix in less than an hour.Cheers Derek.

Hooking carbage disposal to diswashing not sure where it hooks on the dishwasher itself


Waste line from dishwasher to waste connects to one of
  • small spigot on extension pipe above the disposal up high under counter
  • small spigot on side of disposal directly above sewer connection, below blade
  • small spigot on sewer line below disposal, but above U trap
at the dishwasher end, the hose connects to the pump output, under the base of the dishwasher, usually left side of center, there is no external spigot
you have to run the waste line under from the back, and connect from the front , by removing the kick plate under the door opening

Had a similar problem (flashing lights 1 and 2). Drained the machine by diconnecting the outlet hose and using a shallow bowl on the floor. Removed and cleaned filters. Forced clean water through by using a garden hose pipe(you can only do this one way, you cannot force water down the outlet pipe). Removed and cleaned the pump (you have to do this from under the machine but easy enough). Finally ensuring the waste trap under the sink was clear. Bingo!! No parts, no expensive engineer.
