  • Bosch Dishwasher Air Vent hose?

    Howdy - Apprentice Plumber here. I've done lots of dishwashers installations in other peoples homes, but never a Bosch dishwasher which has a an air vent hose. I'm just curious where you would pipe or run this air vent hose? It's a seperate air vent hose off of the side of the unit and not part of the drain hose or anything. Thanks.

    What do the installation instructions say about it?

        If you worked for me , I would beat you with the rubber hose and stuff whatever was left of you through the hole in my vent line!


        You have a lot of learning in front of you Mr. Lambert.

          Pipes,

          I couldn't agree more. I can only imagine the look on an inspector's face when he sees a hole drilled in the side of a vent with a plastic tube feed into it.

              If it makes you feel better, I am beaten with a rubber hose on a daily basis... in the sense that I make, well, not nearly enough to even live in Toronto...

              My first employer had me drill pipe & caulk several times with plastic hoses, so I could only assume this would be similar...
              I also made sure to state to read the intructions, as I was not sure...

              Perhaps you could tell both of us what the correct thing to do would be?

              Thanks,
              Chris

                The instructions don't mention much about the air vent hose.

                Drilling holes in pipes and caulking things is about as sketchy as it gets.

                Plus we're talking about a vent hose that is connected to an area with clean dishes. I don't want sewer gas coming into my dishwasher.

                  I installed a Bosch Dishwasher in my home last summer. My model (Bosch SHU43C02UC) as well contains the infamous "vent" hose. After discussing this with many folks that had no clue where the damm thing went, I contacted Bosch.

                  The hose simply remains secured via the clamp to the side of the unit. The vent should not be rerouted or moved.... I have had my unit in place for approximatley 8 months with no issue. While the dishwasher has been great, Bosch acknowledged they did a poor job explaining the vent hose in the their manuels based on the number of calls regarding the hose.
