PREPARE DRAIN PLUMBING

Drain Requirements
• Follow local codes and ordinances.
• 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 floor?
If the answer to either question is YES, an air gap
(Method 1) must be used. If both answers are NO,
either an air gap or a high drain loop (Method 2)
may be used.
Special consideration for a dishwasher installed
on a pedestal
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
requirement determined above. This is necessary for
proper drain performance.
CAUTION
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
damage.
PRECAUCIÓN
SE DEBE USAR un espacio de aire si la manguera
de drenaje se conecta a la T de desechos o al triturador
menos de 18" por encima del nivel del piso. No disponer
la altura correcta de la conexión del drenaje con
un espacio de aire o 32" de mínimo, una curva alta
de drenaje resultará en un drenaje incorrecto
de la lavadora, lo que pude causar daños.
