Sorry, my well-intentioned diagram didn't work (spaces were omitted). Hope you get the idea anyway.
: If you are looking for a permanent solution, a 3/4" line is not it. Bite a slightly larger bullet and run the discharge from the dishwasher into a 1-1/2" trap as close as possible to the dishwasher. This should be set up as an "indirect waste", i.e. piped into an open waste with a tee above the trap (see diagram). Drywall work is easy compared to doing dishes for the rest of your life or (worse) rupturing the 1/2" pipe while trying to blow it out.
