Corrugated dishwasher drain

Posted by southland76 (My Page) on

I had to purchase a 12' drain hose. The one I got is corrugated, and instead of having an elbow on the connecting end to the dishwasher this one has a straight connector. Therefore the flex plastic hose makes a sharp 90. This is the gray hose with white ribs when bent. The white is exposed to the bend.
Does this sound like it is ok? I don't want a leak!

I wouldn't use it. The corrugations will cause restricted flow.

Tight-90 with ANY hose is bad news...more so in a hidden location like under or in back of a DW. You NEEEEED a molded or rigid elbow to make this work safely and dependably.
