Question

Dishwasher air gap and top rack


Hi there how are you doing?

Thanks for reading this thread. We installed a dishwasher about 3-4 months ago and we did not have the air gap installed. The dishwasher is GE GLD2800TWW.

I think at first the dishwasher seems to be working fine. However recently we found that the upper rack dishes are usually not as clean as we would have hoped. Just wondering whether this is related to the fact that we didn't have a air gap installed? The professional installer told us that it's OK that we don't have a air gap as he already make sure that there is a slope with the drain pipe..etc.. Thoughts or comments? If we correct the air gap would that help with the top rack of the dishwasher to clean better? Many thanks!

No, that's just a code thing in some locals. if not required don't do it-just one more thing to have prob' with...washabilty can have many answers-it's still under warranty, so have it checked and you'll also get some tips...

air gap has nothing to do with performance.
