    Would you please be able to tell me how to hook up the drain for my dishwasher. I have two waste lines from the wall. One for the sink and other for the dishwasher. I know normally you would just go into the tail for the sink, but I've never done it to its own waste outlet. Thanks Rick

    Rick Again


    Hey tom, thanks for the quick response. I may have described my situation wrong, so please allow me to start over.

    I have a double bowl sink hooked up with a "Y" going into one waste line in the wall. There is a second waste line in the wall just for the dishwasher, so its kind of a direct waste outlet.
    P.S. there is no disposel.
    Thanks Rick

    Hey Rick,

    If you have a disposal you can discharge the washer inti the inlet provided. If not then remove the tail piece from the kitchen sink drain and replace it with a branch tailpiece,(see image). Don't forget to run the hose as high as you can in the cabinet and secure it before connecting the hose. Good luck, Tom

    Same answer Rick!! Tom

HELLO, I am taking out a dishwasher and putting it in storage in the garage that has no heat and subject to freezing temps. Do I have to put antifreeze in before I do it? Thank you!

Dishwasher [ 1 Answers ]

My Whirlpool Quiet Partner 1 always has water on the indside door when I unload it. My silverware basket is in the door, so my utensils are wet. Is this a defect in the dishwasher or is my drain line responsible? My dishwasher is only 6 months old!
