GE Triton XL draining from alternate drain by sink

2 posts in this topic

I have a triton XL dishwasher.  For about a week, it has started draining from some kind of alternate drain which is located the faucet on the sink.  I've seen this thing there before, but never knew what it was until now.  How do i make it drain back from how its supposed to?
