What is the length of this drain hose? I need an extended hose for an Island install for a Frigidaire Gallery FGHD2472PF0.
Answer Bill, part number 5304475635 is the original hose used on your model FGHD2472PF0 and will be the same length of the current hose. 10' drain hose part number GPF10L may work with your dishwasher. Thanks!
What keeps water from draining back into the washer after a cycle? I found a 3/4" diameter rubber flapper valve stuck in my drain hose and I see that there is a larger flapper valve directly above the discharge impeller in the pump that looks like it would stop water from flowing back. Standing water is left after a cycle up to the level of the screen filter.
Answer Hello Steve,
The drain should be supported to the height of the countertop or drain water from the sink and dishwasher will backfill the unit. The flapper should not be considered a "safety" to prevent this. Proper installation is necessary as per the installation instructions or the manufacturer will not assist in any repair instances. The drain hose loop must be at least 32” high from the floor to insure proper drainage.
My bottom arm does not rotate? Could you tell me if this is a check valve issue.
If the upper spray arms are spinning then you will want to check to make sure that the lower spray arms are not clogged. The check valve could cause upper to work and bottom to not work but not showing a check valve for your unit.
