You need to have the RIGHT couplings so that the inlet is secured correctly to maintain the right water pressure to the washer. A visit to the hardware shop, plumbing section could help a lot to get the right choice of coupling to mate the hose from the outlet to the machine. You can use teflon if the thread is too loose and makes a leak.

The cold water on my Delta double hand faucet is leaking. I replaced the spring and rubber seat. when I put it back together, i can not turn the water off with the handle. I took the stem assembly out...


I believe they go in one way ,, but I've seen some that are 180 degrees out, which would make it so the water won't shut off, also with delta and moen,, add some plumbers grease to the o rings and faucet washers, so they don't stick when replacing,

Water not flowing into Danby 18"


Okay, this might seem crazy, but it worked. I spent the last 2 days trying to contact Danby customer service to no avail, so I came back here to look for solutions. Found two:
(1) Someone said to open the little rubber cover under the front right of the machine...I couldn't find such a cover.
(2) Someone said to pull off the front plastic panel...mine doesn't seem to be removeable.
So! I turned my Danby DDW1805 upside-down (!) to see if I could locate the aforementioned rubber cover, and a bunch of water drained out of the machine. This is what both solutions above said I wanted to happen, so I flipped it back right-side up and hooked it back onto my faucet.
Golden. Works perfectly again.

Faucet connection


You only need to put back on the steel clamp that fits over the assembly which holds down the shield, the spring, and keeps the 4 ball bearings in place. The ball bearings may be tricky though as they tend to fall out when your putting the assembly back together.

Danby rolling dishwasher -- i've hooked the connector up to the faucet turned on the water and it starts leaking out the top of the connector -- like the water doesn't have anywhere to go. is this normal?


you are right in that the water has nowhere to go initially, the water will be taken by the dishwasher when it wants it, not all of the time (or alot of water would be wasted.)

it sounds like you do not have a good seal is the tap connector if it is leaking like that, check the rubber ring in the connector and ensure that there is not a build up on limescale on the tap (which can make for a leaky seal as the surface is uneaven)

Connector hose


the water pressure is too high in the intake for your kit. use a higher grade kit or reduce the pressure .
