In response to Re: dishwasher installation not next to a sink

: We are putting in a dishwasher in a U-shaped kitchen and dishwasher will not be near the sink. Access for plumbing can be made from basement. How does the plumbing get connected? Thanks

If you cannot go through the cabinets to attach the drain from the DW to the kitchen drain, (check if an air gap is required) you may need to call the plumbing inspector to find out what is permitted, an old style installation in a situation as yours would go staight through the floor to a properly vented drain trap that was close to the ceiling, you might be required to install an island vent to receive the discharge from the DW, pictured above.
