Question about Dishwashers
First cut the hoses off near where they would connect to the plastic quick adapter. Leave a little slack at 2-3 inches between where you cut and the metal clamp.
Take those two pieces you just cut off to home depot or lowes. Afterwards you can chuck them if you don't want them (I did read below). Take the metal faucet adapter with you too.
For the water supply hose (this is the smaller one) need a Hose barb adapter 3/8 Barb x 3/8 FIP
You need a clamp for this.
Get a plastic hose the length you want and the right barb to fit the drain hose and your new hose. You need two clamps. Also you might consider hooking it up to an external water pump depending on your situation. If the hose is long or has to go up above 36 inches then you may need a pump.
Then you want a standard dishwasher connecting kit. They have them from 4-6 feet, they come with a 3/8 brass fitting make sure you get that.
You also need plumbing teflon.
I also wanted to replace the faucet connector because the plastic one it came with leaked all over the place. I got a quick snap that goes to a garden hose. It fits the metal faucet adapter that came with the dishwasher. . I had to get a few connectors to go from the garden hose adapter to the standard dishwasher hose.
Installation. Take the clamp for the supply hose and put it on the hose connected to the dishwasher. Put insert the barb and tighten the clamp.
Put teflon on the 3/8 male connector that came with your standard dishwasher kit. Connect it to the Barb adapter you just installed. Connect your standard dishwasher hose.
Connect the other end. Its pretty straight forward just don't forget to put teflon on any of the thick threads.
From this you can pretty much figure out the rest with the drain hose.
If I were to do it again I probably wouldn't have used the standard dishwasher kit. I would have gotten a cheap plastic tube and connected it. Also if you're happy with the plastic adapter they gave you save the plastic connectors you cut off and you can use another 3/8 barb adapter to connect it to the other end of your extension hose either a simple plastic tube or the standard dishwasher connector.

You can buy a brass nipple that will fit into the end of the hose, put a clamp on it. Put the now hose on, put a clamp on it.
You may also consider just replacing the entire hose from its original connection with a longer hose.
Lowes, HD should have whatever type of hoseing you need.
