How to Replace a Damaged Drain Hose in Your GE Dishwasher

The drain hose in your GE dishwasher model GSD6200GBB carries the waste water out of your appliance. If the hose is cracked or has a small hole in it, you’ll end up with puddles on your floor. Swapping out the damaged drain hose for a new one is a quick and easy repair that most dishwasher owners can accomplish themselves. To help we’ve created a step-by-step repair guide for you to follow.

How to Replace a Drain Hose in Your GE Dishwasher

Unplug your dishwasher and turn off its water supply before starting your repair. Wearing safety goggles and work gloves is also highly recommended.
  1. Start your repair by disconnecting the dishwasher drain line and the fill line from underneath your kitchen sink. You will need to loosen the clamp on the drain line with a nut driver before pulling it off the sink drain or garbage disposal. The fill line is usually connected to the hot water supply valve. Water may drip out of both lines once they’re detached, so have a towel handy to clean up any spillage.
  2. Open the dishwasher’s door, and remove the mounting screws securing the appliance to the kitchen counter. Pull out the dishwasher from underneath the cabinet.
  3. Move to the rear of the dishwasher and locate the drain hose. Loosen the clamp securing the drain to the dishwasher. Pull the drain hose off the check valve fitting. Have a towel ready to clean up any water that leaks out of the hose.
  4. Now that the drain hose is no longer attached to your dishwasher, use a nut driver to remove the clamps from each end of the hose. Then loosely attach the clamps to the new drain hose.
  5. Install the drain hose onto the check valve fitting. Tighten the clamp with your nut driver to create an effective seal.
  6. Before pushing the dishwasher underneath the counter, feed the drain line and fill line back into the holes leading to the water supply valve and drain. Once both lines are pushed through the hole, slide the dishwasher halfway beneath the counter. Move to the sink, and pull the drain and fill line further into the cabinet to ensure they are not bent or twisted. Finish pushing the dishwasher underneath the counter, and secure it with the two mounting screws you removed earlier.
  7. Reinstall the fill line to the water supply valve and the drain hose to the drain. Tighten the clamp on the drain hose to ensure the connection is secure.
  8. Plug-in your dishwasher and turn on the water supply before testing out your new drain hose.
