Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Good evening, and welcome to the Technical section in JustAnswer, an independent paid question and answer platform that matches customers' questions to experts in various skills. My name is ***** ***** I'll be happy to help you today.The very first thing to check is that the dishwasher is draining correctly and that there's no backwash of dirty water. Did the installer ensure that the route of the drain hose is correct? There are lots of ways to do it wrong, and not many ways to do it right._____There's no time pressure on this topic - it will stay open to you for many days, and you can reply at any time. I will be away from my desk sometimes, but will respond as soon as I can.
Hi Dave, is the drain hose routed to a sink trap spigot, or does it drain into a separate standpipe?
There's no rush - this topic will stay open.
Pay special attention to the need for the drain hose to rise to the height of the top of the dishwasher, before falling back down and connecting to the trap spigot.
I'll await your news :-)
Thank you for your kind words. I might not be at my desk when you post on Friday, but I'll respond as soon as I can.
