I removed the air gap and nothing came out when I put the dishwasher on drain. Is it necessary to remove the drain hose from the air gap (is air gap and siphon gap the same thing?)?
How do I know if the drain pimp is running? Is that by sound alone?
I removed the hose from where it goes into the air gap, did a Quick Rinse and Cancel/Drain. Nothing came through but there was water on the floor. I had forgotten to reattach the hose to the drain pump. I could hear a whir which I assumed was the drain pump. I reattached the hose and tried again This time it drained through the hose. I will assume there is a blockage from the air gap to the garbage disposal. I could not blow into the hose but it drained okay. Why is that? After that I will provide a good rating. Thanks.
