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.

Lowes.

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.

Danby portable Dishwasher advances from pre-rinse to dry and then beeps continuously and dry light continues to blink. Doesn't proceed, reset or stop cycle. Just continues to blink.


I actually found out (one of) the solution to this by accident. It could be the water source is not providing enough pressure

I purchased a Danby DDW1899W-1 and, using the connector screwed into my utility sink in the basement, I connected the water. When I tried to run a cycle, I had the same results (filled/emptied 4-5 times, beeped and went to dry cycle).

My alternate, long term plan was to put a Y-splitter (with shutoffs) on the hot water line for my washer, and have one hose go to the dishwasher when needed. I purchased a washer line hose from Home Depot and a 3/4" to Quick Connect fitting from Ace Hardware and then connected the dishwasher to this.

And, Voila! Problem solved!!!

To confirm this was the solution, after the first completed cycle, I connected back to the faucet and, once again had the fill/empty/beep/dry problem. Reverting to the split washer water feed, it was able to run the cycles properly (again!!!)

So you may just need a line that will supply more water pressure to the dishwasher.

Good luck and, hopefully, this solves the problem.

What do I need to hook up my new portable dishwasher to my kitchen sink?


Go to a hardware store and get a Dishwasher Hook-up Kit. It will include a flexible hose along with several adapters. You dishwasher should come with a drain hose. You will also need a 3-wire "pigtail" (an extension cord with no receptacle or socket at the end). Your dishwasher whould have come with installation instructions, but seriously, if you've never done that before (or done similar work before), you should call a professional installer or at least and experienced handy-man.

What is the funnel thing that came with my dishwasher danby ddw1899WP?


The "funnel thing" is exactly what it looks like- a funnel. It's for adding the salt to the water softener located on the "floor" of the dishwasher:)

You should be able to find extension or replacement hoses that you can use to extend the existing hoses at a hardware store. If you need to join two hoses that have female connectors, adaptors with two male connections are available.
