Faucet connector for an old Kenmore portable dishwasher

I'm looking for the connector from the hose to the kitchen sink for a Kenmore 665.17425791 model. The male end should be about the same diameter as the end that screws onto the faucet. All the connectors I have found at places like Home Depot have a smaller male end. I know they don't make them any longer. Is there anywhere I can order one?
Thank you,
Sherry

    looking for a old GE model faucet adapter-- can't find one any suggestions

  • wildreigns Jan 13, 2009

    I have the same problem. Our dishwasher was purchased in early 2005. This seems to be a problem for the old Kenmoore portables. We just had a serviceman come out today. His estimate for the repair was $233.00!!!!!! That's almost what it would cost to buy a new one!! I declined and am going to make a formal complaint!

    I was doing some research online to find the same adapter. I may have found what we all are looking for, but i'll be honest, I won't know until I have it in my hands to test it out.... you may want to look at this link to take a look at it...

Here is the part you need to fix the unicoupler: http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-612568-%3d%3di612568&PartID=612568 The ring didn't fit on mine, so I just used the old one. Pull back the old ring, pry off the c-spring with your nails, and replace the coil spring, teeth, ring, and c-spring.

I own a Kenmore portable dishwasher model#C110- 764400 i cant get the hose to fit on my kitchen faucet , do i need a special connector? what kind or size?


Yes. It is a special screw on adaptor. It should have come with your washer but it is available at any hardware store or at a place like lowes. Just ask the sales people. Easy to do. Read your manual!

You can get an adapter from a local hardware store. I'd come equipped with make and model number and the screw on screen retainer piece from your faucet.

Hello raymun30,
Welcome

You said,the connection from the dishwasher hose at the faucet leaks and sprays water. I tried changing the rubber seal in the hose, but that didn't help. any other suggestions?

What is the Make and model number of your portable dishwasher?
And how old is it?

If I have the number can look into the repair manual and at the diagrams and tell you what part you may need.
Find the complete model number. Waiting your response.
Huuum
That connector attachment can be replaced!!!!!!
