how to remove dishwasher drain hose


I have removed the dishwasher that came with our house, but don't plan to replace it. Now the drain hose is just sticking out of the floor. Do I cap it? Push it down into the crawl space? Something else?

They usually hook up to a drain at some point unless yours just drains in the crawl space. I doubt it. Follow the drain hose to where it connects to main drain and remove hose and cap there if you no longer plan to use it. Just a suggestion.

Re: how to remove dishwasher drain hose


It should be capped so you don't get sewer gas seeping into the house. As suggested, best to follow the hose back to where it connects to the plumbing and cap it there. If you can't do that, find a bolt that fits tightly into the hose then tighten a hose (gear) clamp onto the end of the hose for extra security.
