Where does the black hose attach to? Or do I have to plug it?
The black hose will attach to the bottom back of the tub assembly and does not get plugged as it is an air break.
Can I get the correct drain hose without the little black hose so I don't have to plug it and have it potentially leak?
Answer Hello Don! Unfortunately, the manufacturer no longer offers the drain hose without the small black hose attachement. You'll need to order drain hose part number AEM69493803 for your model LDF8812ST. Sorry about that!
