    I have a Bosch dishwasher (model SHX36L) that I am trying to install. The machine has two flexible hoses coming out of it. One is at the bottom of the back side of the machine and is clearly the drain line. The other is the confounding one. It is in the middle of the right side of the machine and isn't mentioned in the installation manual. The hose is about 6' long and seems to be a vent line.

    Can anyone tell me what this flexible hose is supposed to connect to?

    Could it be the water supply line?

    i thought the new dishwashers had a drain loop built in. so you dont have to loop the drain line up to the countertop to install. should be connected though!
