Drain Requirements

A new drain hose is supplied with your dishwasher. If drain
hose is not long enough, use a new drain hose with a
maximum length of 12 ft (3.7 m) (Part Number 3385556) that
meets all current AHAM/IAPMO test standards, is resistant to
heat and detergent, and fits the 1" (2.5 cm) drain connector of
the dishwasher.
Make sure to connect drain hose to waste tee or disposer inlet
above drain trap in house plumbing and 20" (50.8 cm)
minimum above the floor. It is recommended that the drain
hose either be looped up and securely fastened to the
underside of the counter, or be connected to an air gap.
Make sure to use an air gap if the drain hose is connected to
house plumbing lower than 20" (50.8 cm) above subfloor or
If required, the air gap should be installed in accordance with
the air gap installation instructions. When you are connecting
the air gap, a rubber hose (not provided) will be needed to
connect to the waste tee or disposer inlet.
