This Tall Tub Dishwasher Drain Hose Extension measures 12'L and drains the waste water properly to a sink, tub or drain hole during your appliances cleaning cycle. If the location of your drain is further than the standard distance from your dishwasher, installing this accessory may help alleviate the issue. This is a universal part that can be used across several brands; check to see if your model number is compatible. Installing this accessory will require basic hand tools, some disassembly of the dishwasher and novice repair experience. You must unplug the dishwasher or shut off the house circuit breaker for the appliance before installing this part. Also turn off the dishwasher's water supply before you begin. Helpful Tip: We also recommend using affresh® Dishwasher Cleaner* (item W10282479) to help reduce limescale and mineral build-up that can be unsightly and affect your dishwasher s performance. *affresh® brand products are owned and distributed by Whirlpool Corporation.
