I'm thinking of installing a dishwasher. Unfortunately, my kitchen layout would not allow me to install it beside the sink (without moving the whole sink & cabinet). So, I'd like to install it along another wall.
My question - can I just run a new water supply and drainage to this spot (and electric)? I have good access under the floor, via my basement. Or, does the drain really need to go to a disposal? I've seen dishwashers that have a "hard food disposer" feature, but I'm not sure if this replaces the sink's disposal, or just helps clear large items out of the tub interior during washes.
