Question

Dishwasher installation away from sink-drain hose


Hi to everyone reading from Croatia
I have a problem with dishwasher installation(see link in reply post)

DW is about 110-120 cm away from drain, separated by 1 cabinet with drawers.
Red line is solution installed by us. Drain hose is extended with another one, and it goes below cabinets, then up to high loop next to sink, and then to drain.
Plumber installed it badly, hose was laying on floor, without high loop. My husband lifted it a little and we added high loop beside sink.
Would it be better do do high loop on DW ( on back), and then below cabinets, to another high loop beside sink.
Thank you!!!

You only need one loop. A lot of dishwashers already have a loop installed. I don't think it will cause any issues having a long drain line

4 ft or 120 cm is not to far.

Purpose of high loop is to prevent dirty water from disposal from entering the dishwasher. Therefore high loop should be at the disposal. You wouldn't want dirty water sitting in drain line.

Re: Dishwasher installation away from sink-drain hose


When I install this kind of layout- I usually go high at the DW and keep it high all the way to the sink- right under the counter top. Is this a better method? Beats me, but it's an easier install

That is the best, no water laying in the hose and little falling back to the washer.
