When And How To Replace The Hose On Your Dishwasher
High-end hoses made with high-quality materials can endure the trials of time and the rigors of regular use, often requiring replacement after approximately five
to seven years.
Hoses made with low-quality materials resist wear and tear for three years before requiring replacement. The longevity of the hose is
also affected by how the dishwasher is used.
However, leaks, cracks, or reduced water flow indicate corrosion and should be addressed regardless of the hose’s age, as these signs may signify an immediate need for replacement.
Replacing a dishwasher hose is pretty straightforward. First, turn off the electricity to the dishwasher by flipping the breaker switch in
the electrical panel.
After the power is turned off, shut off the water in the home and disconnect the dishwasher drain hose. This is typically connected to the sink drain, air gap, or garbage disposal.
Disconnect the water supply line and install the new drain hose included with your dishwasher. Next, loop the flexible drain line up to the underside of the countertop.
After installing a new drain hose, reconnect the water supply line and reactivate the water supply. Finally, switch the power supply back on to the dishwasher.
