Jun 17, 2018 · My email to Mark Metheny and Steve Smith of Lennar regarding the missing dishwasher drain air gap. According to the article I referenced from the StarTribune : The high loop or air gap must be used to prevent potential backflow contamination of the dishwasher.
Why Does My Dishwasher Need an Air Gap? If you have a home inspection conducted, chances are good that you will be informed about a problem with the home’s dishwasher air gap. Installers can’t seem to get the installation right and the area is often out-of-sight, out-of-mind. Shop for Air Gaps at Ferguson.

Jun 12, 2008 · Inspector told me to install high drain loop OR air gap. he actually leaned on high drain loop and indicated it was an easy fix. I have a picture of a "high drain loop" from the manufacture of my dishwasher and I will follow this instruction. Thanks everyone for your help!
I live alone so I run my dishwasher about once a week. My previous dishwasher was super old and a piece of junk but it never had a smell issue. The new dishwasher is connected to a new disposal and has run fine from day one (dishes come out clean, disposal works fine, etc.) I talked to My Bosch field service manager and he would like the name of the service company so he can get them straightend out. What he did with the hose is not correctand accomplishes nothing. The high loop must be at the right wall in your photo, straight up, attached at around 20 inches high, then it can go over to the air gap or drain. The Bosch drain-hose is a pain, *because* it's at the rear (probably similar to all tall-tubs). Unless you have a way to access the rear area of the machine when it's installed, you have to hook up the drain hose before you slide the machine in, which means that as you push the dishwasher in, that “excess” drain-hose will route itself however it sees fit. A range of sound-reducing technologies makes Bosch the quietest dishwasher brand in the U.S.* For you, that means never having to wait until going to bed to run the dishwasher. Our dishwashers are so quiet, we've added an InfoLight that shines on the floor so you know when the dishwasher is running.
