    Default Inline sediment filter for dishwasher

    Looking for a simple, inline sediment filter for the dishwasher. One I can install under the sink using existing plumbing hardware. Something as simple as a screen filter as used in the dishwasher fill valve assembly would be ideal. I want to trap the sediments before they hit the dishwasher fill valve assembly.

    Any suggestions ? Thx.

    Do you see evidence of sediment anywhere? If so, what is the appearance? Is this a hot water line?

    Predominant problem is with the dishwasher ...... hot water line. Inlet valve screen gets plugged with "sand" debris. Never a problem with the wash machine. I have
    cleared similar debris from several faucet airaters, but VERY infrequently.

    I am not sure of a filter screen but there are high temperature housings that you can put on the hot water line before the dishwasher that uses a high temp filter.

    Pentek 158319 - High Temperature housing

    Pentek PD-25-934 - 25 micron

    Or..

    Pentek PD-10-934 - 10 micron (Finer filtration)

    Filter change depends on water quality and usage. Basically when the filter is clogged and flow is restricted.
