DRAIN REQUIREMENTS
Method 1 - Air gap with Waste Tee or Disposer
• Follow local codes and ordinances.
• Do not exceed 10 feet distance to drain.
• Do not connect drain lines from other devices to the
dishwasher drain hose.
• Dishwasher must be connected to waste line with an
air gap (not supplied) or 32" minimum high drain loop,
depending on local codes and ordinances to prevent
back flow into the dishwasher.
• Air gap must be used if waste tee or disposer
connection is less than 18" above the floor to prevent
siphoning.
DRAIN PREPARATION
The type of drain installation depends on answers to the
following questions:
[] Do local codes or ordinances require an air gap?
[] Will waste tee or disposer connection be less than 18"
above the floor?
[] Will installation have a drain loop less than 32: above
floor? If the answer to any of the 3 questions above is
Yes, Method 1 MUST be used. Otherwise, either
Method 1 or Method 2 may be used. Figure C or
Figure D.
CAUTION :
An air gap MUST BE USED if the drain hose is
connected to waste tee or disposed lower than 18"
above the floor.
Failure to provide the proper drain connection height
with air gap or 32" min, high drain loop will result in
improper draining of the dishwasher.
