Drain requirements Product Damage 9 The drain line connection to the house plumbing must be a minimum of 20” above the floor. A lower drain connection may result in siphoning. 9 If the drain is routed to a connection point less than 20” above the floor, the drain line must form a loop 20” above the floor. See Figure 5, Page 4. Do Not kink hose and copper tubing. Failure to provide either a 20” mlnlmum connection height or a 20” high loop will result in improper drainage and may cause product damage. l The drain hose should be 9/l 6” minimum ID flexible hose or 5/8” OD copper tubing. A minimum of 22” flexible drain hose or a 12” length of copper drain line with 12” length of flexible hose added is needed. Flexible hose, resistant to heat and detergent, can be found at plumbing, hardware or automotive supply stores. Do Not use a drain line or fittings less than l/2” ID. If drain line Is copper, clamp a 12” length of g/16” ID flexible, heat and detergent resistant hose to end of copper drain line to connect to dishwasher valve. Page 3 copper, the copper should be 12” plus a 12” length of flexible hose attached to the end. Connect the air gap to a waste tee or disposer using a rubber connector. Most disposers have 7/8” connectors or special connectors are available at plumbing supply houses. Be sure to remove the disposer knockout or plug before connecting the drain hose. Air-gap Figure 5 If drain hose connection is less than 20” above the floor, the hose must form a loop using 38” OD copper tubing 20 inches above the floor. Make sure there are no kinks in the hose or copper tubing. se tor Product Damage All solder connections must be made before the water line is connected to the dishwasher to prevent damage to the inlet valve. ‘0 Do Not solder within 6” of inlet valve. The plastic part of the 1 water inlet valve could be damaged. l Alternate methods: If connection to an air gap is required, air gap kits are available from local plumbing sources. Recommended methods: Air-gap kit If local plumbing codes permit, dishwasher drain hose may be connected directly to a waste tee or directly to a waste disposer. Install air gap according to kit instructions. Page 4 The waste tee connection MUST be made ahead of the trap and a minimum of 20 inches above the floor. Most disposers have 7/8” connectors or special connectors are available at plumbing supply houses. Be sure to remove the disposer plug before connecting the drain hose.
