If your dishwasher has sprung a leak, check the drain hose first. If it’s cracked or has a hole, then it’s releasing a lot of the wastewater from your dishwasher’s cycle. Luckily, this can be a quick, easy repair. Order a replacement drain hose, which is part #807117001 for Frigidaire dishwasher models, and follow these steps.
1. Unplug and turn off the water supply.
Whenever you’re modifying an appliance, disconnect it from its water supply. This is even more important when there’s water nearby.
2. Remove the dishwasher from under the counter.
First, remove the screws that secure your dishwasher against the countertop.
Next, disconnect the drain line and the fill line connected to the water supply. Place the hose and line ends on a towel to prevent drips.
Then pull the dishwasher out from under the counter.
3. Remove the drain hose.
Locate the drain hose’s connection to the pump at the rear of the dishwasher. Loosen the metal clamp and pull the drain hose’s black endpoint free from the appliance.
4. Install the new drain hose.
Different dishwasher models have different hose styles where they connect to the underside of your sink. Cut the rubber end of the drain hose down to fit your model’s particular fit. This part comes with a universal fitting, so it should be simple to match it with your sink.
Then push the other end of the drain hose over the pump’s connection point. Slide the clamp over the end of the hose and tighten it.
5. Reinstall the dishwasher.
Push the drain and supply lines back through the hole in the cabinet so they’re under the sink. Slide the dishwasher partially back into place and be careful to not pinch the hose. Then pull the waterline, hose, and power cord again, and push the appliance the rest of the way into place under the counter.
Next, tighten the screws that secure the dishwasher against the underside of your countertops.
Then reconnect the water line and the drain hose under the sink.
