To hook a drain line, not a water line, from the dishwasher to the garbage disposer is as follows: there is a connection on the garbage disposer for a dishwasher (on the side) There is a plastic fitting that came with the disposer(if all parts were saved) The fitting is going to look like it has barbed ridges(for tubing to slide over) on one end and a flange and seal at the other end. 1) make sure the plastic is knocked out of the disposer where the fitting connects to. 2) Connect fitting to disposer using 2 screws 3) Connect drain hose from dishwasher to disposer by sliding rubber gromet over plastic barbed fitting. Make sure you cut the rubber gromet to the right size of the fitting 4) Use hose clamp over rubber gromet. 5) Use zip ties to hang drain tubing as high as you can so water wont drain back into dishwasher. (new dishwashers ususally have p-trap built into the drain line already.) thats it. should work
