Dishwasher drain hookup to garbage disposal
have had my Bosch dishwasher for about a year using the same setup you contemplate, so I'm familiar with the exact drain connector you have on the dishwasher hose. Do not use a wrench or pliers to tighten the cap or you risk scratching the finish. Reinstall the doors after connecting the hoses. Insert the threaded stem at the top of the air-gap fitting into the hole at the back of the sink from below. With wheels on the back like a shopping cart, the dishwasher can be rolled right into place. Next, he gets under the sink and slips the disposer into position. The clamp was tight enough to somewhat compress a groove into the rubber, and I tugged on the thing as hard as I could. Slide both of the provided hose clamps onto the other end of the hose. The dishwasher has a very clean design, with the electronics panel on the top of the lid, where it's hidden from view under the counter.
Identify the air-gap fitting by a small square or round cover next to the faucet. Cut the hose to length, as necessary, so the end fits onto the vertical nozzle on the air-gap fitting without a bend or loop in the hose. I then tightened down the hose clamp with a hex bit on my cordless driver. If permanently wired to a circuit, turn off the disposal unit at the breaker panel. The dishwasher pumps discarded water and food particles through the hose and into the garbage disposal. Plumbing and heating contractor Doug Buchanan is ready to install, among other appliances, the Kenmore Elite dishwasher. While old-style dishwashers have a drain solenoid, the new styles (like this Kenmore Elite) have a pump.
