Title: Kenmore Elite D/W part # confusion
Post by: ron3033 on March 29, 2019, 09:28:05 AM
[img]Hi All
Kenmore Elite Dishwasher  665.16059402    drain hose    two questions

1) Booklet says drain hose is 8269144, but I find it as 8269144A ?  Does the "A" suffix make the hose different ??

2) the old hose got nicked during new sink install  :oops:  The hose goes up over the top right rear corner of the DW (as you look into DW)  through the side gable of the cabinet right below the countertop and back down to sink drain bib.  The new sink is a bit deeper and will lower the drain bib when new drain plumbing is installed... so I am not sure of length will fit.  Can I lower where it goes through the side gable? 
I took some photos  one shows nicked hose going through gable and behind new sink, second shows OLD plumbing bib.

Thanks for the help, much appreciated.

Hi Dab  Thanks for that info.  I am going to order the  6 0r 6 1/2 foot hose  it seems where ever you look you get conflicting lengths??
Maybe the A suffix is shorter? 
Anyway I guess I can just lower the hose from right under the counter a bit.  There is a loop apparently on the side of the DW so it cannot siphon itself dry, so I guess the hose could even lie in the floor?  Think that is okay? 

Thanks
