No air gap for dishwasher. Do I need it?

\015 We just moved in and replaced dishwasher because old one had bad pump. Noticed that we are still not getting clean dishes out. I noticed that there is not air gap coming up to the top of my sink. Could that be the problem? Do I really need one?\015

Answers :

That is a sink overflow hole that should have nothing to do with your dishwasher or disposal. You wont have that feature any kitchen sink that has to accomodate a disposal at the bottom.

If your machine is cycling properly, it could just be that it is a kitchenaid, like mine, and they just are not as high quality as they used to be.

GE Dishwasher model PDW8200J03BB stopped draining. Removed the drain pump, checked with Voltmeter and there is resistance on ohms X10 of about 3. The flap is in place so water isn't shooting back into the sump inlet. Replaced the sump inlet about 6 months ago because it was deteriorated due to hard water. Pump worked fine after that. Checked drain hoses and air gap. Was able to blow water through. Pump only trickles water out at air gap. Does the pump need replaced?
