Diswasher drainage in an island

We remodeled our kitchen and we installed the dishwasher in the island instead of by the sink(originally the diswasher was next to the sink).  Can I just run the drainage pipe from the dishwaser, under the floor and up to the sink?

Dbootin,

I suggest just putting a dedicated Drain in the island next to the Dishwasher. You can hide it in side the island. Under the house, tee into the Main Sewage drain.  You should not need to vent it as the sinks vent is near enough to keep you from worrying about that.

Want to remove present dishwasher for replacement with a new one. How do you do it.


Most dishwashers are housed in a cabinet next to your kitchen sink.
Not knowing how exactly your machine is set up I will just advise you on common setup features and removal.
First open the doors to kitchen cabinet under the sink. If you see two hoses connected under the sink, they most likely are from your dishwasher. One is an inlet hose which would be connected to a water tap. The other would be a drain hose which would be connected via a clamp to the drain under your sink.
Turn off water tap to remove inlet hose. Unscrew or undo the clamp fixing your drain hose to drain pipe. Note when you remove the drain hose the hole to the drain pipe is exposed. You need to block this off as it will leak water when ever the sink is running. I normally get a plastic bag and twist it inside the hole and tape it off.
Next you need to locate the power cord and plug for the dishwasher. This is normally under the sink cabinet as well. However, check either side of the dishwasher. Sometimes they are behind the dishwasher.
Once you have disconnected the hoses, open dishwasher door. Look on the inside walls of the dishwasher. Some models are screwed into the wall of the cabinet so you need to unscrew machine. The screws go in either from the side walls or from the inside roof of dishwaser to your benchtop.
You need to also remove the kitchen kickboard if one has been installed infront of the dishwasher.
When machine is free open the diswasher door and grab either side of door and gently pull machine out. Have someone help you feed the hoses through as you pull out.
If the machine does not easily pull out check again for hidden anchor screws around the edges of the machine or even clamps which fix the hoses to the cabinet.
If you have issues pulling it out see if you can take some pictures and I will help you.

How do unclog the drain on my dishwasher model 665.16902400


Unhook the drain hose for the sink connection. Clean out port connection of the sink connection..
leave the hos off until you complete Air-Gap inspecion / cleaning (next)

On most installs there is an Air-Gap on the back of the kitchen sink.
images?q=tbn:and9gcq21cbh2axzfji-fvyvbg8mgnyhpmkowhj1toxxffd2qewqkya7dbgxkvqy
Pull the outer shell cover straight up and off.
NOTE the inner nut and diverter cap installed position. (It only fits one way)
Unscrew the inner plastic nut
Remove diverter cap.
Use a flash light and wire coat hanger to clear any obstructions from the outlet. Place the end you removed from thge cink connection into a bucket and pour water into the hole where the diverter cap was. This will flush the drain portion of the Air-gap and outlet hole to the sink connection.
Next remove the dishwasher drain hose from the air gap connection. Place removed Hose in the bucket and secure it if you can not hold it.
Set diswasher to wash or cancel drain and let the residual water in the dishwasher pump into the bucket. (can make a mess if pump flow is strong.) Keep a rag in your hand. If you now have good flow... reconnect the dishwasher drain hose to the Air-Gap Connection and the Air Gap to sink connection to the sink connecton port. Task complete.

If you still have a problem after doing the above... Remove the drain hose from the dishwasher connection and check the dishwasher outlet port for obstructions. Remove any obstructions.

Ok now... if it is still not draining.. I need to confirm your model number because it is not crossing to any repair or parts data. You posted 665.16902400 is this correct? Let me know if your stil having problems. I think I can work around the model number issue but would prefer to have a good model number if you have to remove the lower wash arm and clean the sump area. (Last)

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Nautilus diswasher is sending water out through the "overflow"? next to the sink, flooding the kitchen.


You must have a clog in the drain line. If it is ran to your garbage disposal then that is the first place to check.

In a kitchen remodel, I am installing the dishwasher about 3 feet from the sink. How do I plumb it?


If it were me I would use a small hole saw and run my braided stainless lines below the kick plate if code allows or at the back of the adjoining cabinet at a height which would not conflict with contents. You can buy an ABS dishwasher drain kit at Lowes or HD

Remodeled kithen; when dishwasher reinstalled, water backs up


OK, I have made this error before.
When you install a new garbage disposal, it comes with a "plug" that fills the hole of the little pipe that the dishwasher drain hose connects to (if there is a dishwasher.)
Remove that plug (see instructions for the disposal) and you should be all set.
Also, if you ever get the chance, consider installing a dishwasher AirGap valve between your dishwasher and garbage disposal. They are almost free at any hardware store.
Good Luck! Please report back with what you find.

I have started hearing a gurgling sound in my diswasher air vent when I run water in my sink. Why has this begun happening? I have an /estate dishwasher Model TUD7000Y-0


Sounds like your waste water drains could be backing up and pushing water back into the dishwasher.
Firstly try pouring Mr Muscle sink and plughole un-blocker down the sink and leave overnight next morning pour boiling water down the sink and your pipes should be squeaky clean. Hopefully this will improve the flow and prevent gurgling!

Installation


The incoming hot water can be hooked up independently. The thing you should consider is the drain line. The drain hose and the pump are (obviously) below the tub of the dishwasher (DW). If you route the drain hose through the floor directly, the water in the tub will siphon out. You'll need to route the drain hose to keep this from happening. The way to do that is to route it in such a way that it forms an almost upside down "J", then down through the island. The upper portion of the "J" should be about the same height as the top of the DW.

Also consider the electrical hook up. The proper way to wire it is through a SPST switch (like a light switch) so you can turn power off in an emergency or a servicer can kill power without having to locate the breaker. Some contractors "hard wire" the DW's in (with or without a SPST switch)... others mount a wall outlet so you can plug and unplug the DW if necessary. Either way is OK, only mentioned it so you'll know how your contractor will be doing it.

Just some things to consider. Good luck with the renovation and I hope you enjoy your new Kitchen.

the waste water piping must be on the downhill side of a drain trap. the trap prevents bad gasses from entering the house.
