Installing a Dishwasher Hose May require a Dishwasher Drain Hose Extension Kit

You finally got that dishwasher you’ve been eyeing, and you can’t wait to hook it up. Thoughts of a more manageable kitchen life dance through your head as the very notion of it makes you grin. That perfect little area next to the sink calls out to the new dishwasher, ready to welcome it. You’ve measured the space that will cradle your new appliance to ensure a perfect fit. You will not be washing dishes tonight; your new dishwasher will. You are giddy with excitement and ready to install your new appliance until you start gathering your tools and notice the dishwasher hose.

Dishwashers can be Installed Properly with a Dishwasher Drain Hose Extension Kit

The purchase of a hose extension kit, as in the above scenario, can mean the difference between putting the dishwasher where it works well and where you prefer it. The dishwasher drain hose is a standard size, but it is not always long enough to do the trick. The simple extension kit we provide fits most models so that you can have it installed correctly and get on to other things.

A high loop on the dishwasher drain hose is used to prevent water backflow and improper drainage, so you need more than just what is required to reach the sink. It also helps prevent water from siphoning out during the dishwasher operation. Sometimes an air gap can serve the same purpose, but each state and jurisdiction have specific regulations for dishwasher hose installation.

These parts and many others can be found on our website and in our online store. Our electrical technicians and mechanics answer all email queries, not salespeople. This helps ensure that you receive reliable advice based on experience and service history. Whether you have a new or vintage appliance, we aim to keep it running in top shape.
