Long story short, I renovated my kitchen and have two counters. I have a counter where the oven and kitchen sink reside. Across from the counter (about 5 ft), I have a dishwasher across. I have a drainage tube (rubber hose) that runs from the dishwasher to the sink (about ~8-9ft long). Whenever I try to drain, the water just stays there and does not drain.
I took out the drainage hose and was able to drain the water in the dish washer in a bucket (through the dishwasher's drain cycle). When I bought the dishwasher, I was assured that the pump was strong enough to pump the water and the drainage pump will continue to pump as long as there is water in the dishwasher. I think the dishwasher is not draining due to the distance that the water has to travel to drain (I checked for clogs, there are none). I am guessing I messed up big time and may need to custom fit my dishwasher with a much stronger pump? I'd greatly appreciate any advice or words of wisdom.
