    What is drain tube from? Wash machine,garbage disposal/dishwasher, Remove old one replace with longer one or you can add on piece but when you work with plumbing the less seams/connectors the better,less chances of leaks

      The thread on the pipe doesnt allow the tube to get any farther up on the main drain which is connected to the dishwasher.

    In the photo I see the dishwasher hose connected to a copper pipe that is threaded to a check valve. Is that what you are talking about?

    Yes. The threaded pipe doesnt accommodate the flex tube and doesnt allow for secure attachment.
