Whirlpool WDT970SAHV Dimension Guide
A new drain hose is supplied with your dishwasher.
If drain hose is not long enough, use a new drain hose with a
maximum length of 12 ft (3.7 m) that meets all current AHAM/
IAPMO test standards, is resistant to heat and detergent, and
fits the 1" (25 mm) drain connector of the dishwasher.
NOTE: Do not connect multiple drain hoses together.
Make sure to connect drain hose to waste tee or disposer
inlet above drain trap in house plumbing and 20" (508 mm)
minimum above the floor. It is recommended that the drain
hose either be looped up and securely fastened to the
underside of the counter or be connected to an air gap.
Make sure to use an air gap if the drain hose is connected
to house plumbing lower than 20" (508 mm) above
subfloor or floor.
If required, the air gap should be installed in accordance
with the air gap installation instructions. When you are
connecting the air gap, a rubber hose (not provided) will
be needed to connect to the waste tee or disposer inlet.
Use 1/2" minimum I.D. drain line fittings.
