Good morning all. I've searched and read but still have a question about dw drain. I'm going to redo the kitchen and dw is not, and cannot be near the sink. My current dw (circa 1984 GE GSD model is drained directly to the main drain in the basement. The hose is looped up the back of dw and clamped to a 3/4 copper stub about 12" thru the floor to an 1 1/2" copper drain which goes directly in to the main. We have never had a problem with the water siphoning out or sewer gas or unclean dishes. Is it possible that this hook-up worked because this dw has a seperate drain solenoid where it looks like newer models do not? Thanks for any feedback and....!!
