It was 94 degrees that day so I set the rubber hose outside in the sun to loosen it up, make it more plyable. I then mixed up some soapy water and doused the ends of the hose with the soapy water and slid the hose right onto the fittings.

There was a small hole in the hose which was not discussed in the directions. I assumed the hole should be installed on the down side to let water drain out after the dishwasher is finished. This will reduce the chance of bacteria building in the hose.

I read the installation tips before I started and picked up the soap mix and heating up the hose before installation. Can be accomplished with a hair dryer if it is not 94+ degrees outside!!!
