I have just bought a second hand Bosch diswasher and the grey waste pipe that comes out of the machine has a "knob" on the end that is too small a diameter to fit onto the horn attachment under the sink. I have looked in the DIY shops and can't find an attachment that fits under the sink with a smaller diameter. Am I missing something, or do I just cut the "knob" bit off to leave the corrugated plastic which "should" fit on the horn?
Trouble is, once I've cut it off, there's no going back!
I have overcome the problem by fitting a old style hose fitting (non threaded taps) for garden hoses (rubber end with built in clamp)and clamped it on to the hose and then onto the drain pipe. Available Bunnings for $10.00

Open filter go to back of machine & clean the end of grey waste pipe blow into end of pipe, if u feel no restriction when blowing their is no blockage next tilt machine backwards at 45 degree angle against wall the u can look under washing check large black waste water pipe between bottom of drum and water pump for possible blockage make sure u isolate machine from electrical supply first hope this helps
you need to lay the machine on its side
this is the oposide side from the soap drawer
then under the machine locate the pump and remove the pipe from the pump
must use a spring clip youll need a good set of plyers or a pair of gas grips etc to squeeze the clip open
then the pipe will come out from its hole easily
make sure the machine is unplugged,, turn water hose off and undo it from the machine.. then undo the waste pipe now pull machine out and lay a cushion on the floor at the back of the machine.. lay the machine on the cushion (so its on its back) undo one screw bottom end near pump on plimpth and push plimpth to the right and once off you will see 3 screws around the pump,, undo them and pump should fall down,, now you have the pump in your hands it should unscrew,, take out all the **** from the pump,, once you have cleared everything you should put everything back together.
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
