I just got my new hose for my model LDF7810ST dishwasher. Where does the black hose connect to? I cannot find the connection. Do I need more parts to complete this job?
Answer Wayne, On most LG dishwashers the small black(3/8") hose attached to the drain hose assembly will be routed to the left side of the tub and is attached to the " nipple" on the air guide assembly 4975DD1001A. If your unit does not have the attachment point you'll need to plug the hose fitting on the new drain hose assembly.
Where black hose is going to?
Answer Hello Dan. The black hose goes to the tab on the top of the fill chamber on the side of the unit.
For the drain hose with vent attachment, how do I plug or cap the plastic, white vent tube (U)?
Answer Hello Jeff. You do not need to cap off the vent tube hose on the drain hose AEM69493803. This prevents the unit from siphoning grey water back into the unit. Hope this helps.
How do you cap off the black hose? Why can't i get a hose without this black hose
Answer Hi Tom. Are you only using one drawer? I dont understand. Why do you need to cap one side off? You can buy caps and clamps at a hardware store. Thank you.
I ordered a drain hose from you, but need help to install it. On your site it says the hose attaches to overflow chamber. I can't find a picture of that. Where is it located and what does it look like? The old drain hose did not have the black hose part so I'm not sure how to attach the one I got from you.
Answer Hi Scott.Step 6: DRAIN LINE CONNECTION
1. If the end of the drain hose does not fit to the drain line, use an adapter (not supplied) that
must be resistant to heat and detergent and may be obtained from a plumbing shop.
2. There are 2 typical connections as shown in Figures C & D.
? There may be other options than shown here for connection the drain hose. The drain
connection must meet local plumbing regulations.
? The S trap spigot must be drilled out cleanly and free of obstruction to its maximum
internal diameter, if used for drainage.
? To prevent syphoning, one of the following instruction methods must be followed:
??Follow local codes and ordinances.
??Do not exceed 10 ft. (3m) distance
??Do not connect drain lines from
other devices to the dishwasher
