Drain Requirements
• Drain hose must not exceed 10 feet in length.
• A high drain loop or air gap is required. See below.
Drain Method
The type of drain installation depends on the following:
• Do local codes or ordinances require an air gap?
• Is waste tee less than 18" above the fl oor?
If the answer to either question is yes, an air gap must be used.
Refer to Method 1 (Figure C) in the adjacent illustrations.
If both answers are no, either an air gap or high drain loop may
be used. Refer to Method 1 (Figure C) or Method 2 (Figure D)
in the adjacent illustrations
NOTE: Drain hose elevation must not exceed 48".
Special consideration for a dishwasher installed on
a elevated platform
lf the dishwasher is installed on an elevated platform, a high
drain loop of at least 32" above the platform must be provided
in addition to the air gap or drain loop requirement determined
above. This is necessary for proper drain performance.
An air gap MUST BE USED if the drain hose is connected to
waste tee or disposer lower than 18" above the floor level.
Failure to provide the proper drain connection height with
an air gap or 32" minimum, high drain loop will result in
improper draining of the dishwasher, which may cause
