    Question Dishwasher drain and air gap

    Can not having an air gap for the dishwasher drain hose ruin your dishwasher's pump motor?

    No, but what it can do is draw dirty water back out of the drain and into the dishwasher. That is the reason for the air gap, to prevent back flow of gray water.
