    Hi all

    We have a split dishewasher waste pipe which needs replacing - it seems an easy enough job but one problem I'm having is working out how to fully drain the dishwasher.

    Issue is that the waste pipe goes into the very bottom under the machine, and Even when cycle is finished the bottom salt store is still full of water - I'm guessing tipping the dish washer when this is full of water isn't going to be the best idea, any ideas how to fully drain this out too?

    Thanks

    Marc

    Disconnect the waste pipe from the drain, and lay it flat on the floor - or better still, out of the back door.
    That should drain out as much water from the machine as possible.

    In a flat so will have to be option a - maybe I can lift it and rest on something and then get the pipe into a bucket.

    Thanks!

    Plenty of towels and a bucket is the best way if you don't have an AquaVac!
