You can, but you won't get the benefit of hot or cold wash, it will always be warm. What you need is a washer type hose (armored are the best as they last longer and less likely to break) and then a "Y" adaptor which is actually designed to chanel two faucets into one. You will be applying it in reverse though. Run the hose from the sink to the "Y" then attach the "Y" to the washer. Make sure to check the connectors match. you will need male connectors to the faucet and the washer and, generally, the "Y" has a male connector on the single side so you will need a female connector on one end of the hose. But as I said, all you washing will be warm with no option to select hot or cold unless you control that at the faucet.

    mjdaniels42,



    Had a brain dead moment. Switch what I said about the connectors: make male female and female male. Also, if you have trouble locating a "Y" hose, you can get three washer hoses and go to a lawn and garden center and get a plastic "Y" splitter for a hose. In either case, make sure you wrap teflon tape around the female connectors especially if they are plastic. Wrap the tape in a clock-wise direction for best results (don't use joint compound as it is not designed to be used on plastic/PVC pipe). This will make it easier to take apart, but more importantly, it will prevent water leaks at the joints. Again, sorry about the mix up on the male/female connectors. Long day :)

1 yes all standard.2 Yes you can get a Y piece. 3 no you will only use water from cold. But you can solve that by going to a good hardware store or B.Q and gettein a self cutting tap for washing machines. You can fit this in just minutes, and do not even need to turn off the water supply. just make sure there is a clean straight piece of pipe to fit it to. 4 yes fit waste pipe to u bend under sink.

I have very little water press on the hot water side


Dis-assemble the faucet to get to the valve. The handle comes off and you access the valve from the top, usually by removing a screw on ring.

You will robably find contamination in the hot side of the valve.

You can find instructions on the Moen website.

Size and installation for instant water heater


Ariston gl4.0 should be fine if used inline with your hot water heater. Used alone it will likely run out when dishwasher is filling and you are using sink.To use your existing hot water for backup: 1 connect existing HOT water line to cold (inlet) on ariston, 2 Then HOT (outlet) from ariston to sink and dw. If you want instant hot water at a sink 10 feet away: use 3/8 pex pipe from ariston to sink, so you only have to run off a cupful or 2 before hot water arrives at sink.

Not getting hot water to my dishwasher


Assuming that you dishwasher is connected to the same under sink hot water valve as your kitchen sink and that you run water in your sink until hot water really does arrive in the sink just before you start your dishwasher, your problem is probably a failed heating element inside your dishwasher. The other symptom of this heater element is cloudy film on your glassware after the cycle completes.

If the above is true, then replacing the element would be your next step.

Can i connect my Hoover HD73M Dishwasher to a cold feed?


First off, you need a hot water feed line for your dishwasher, not cold water

Secondly, if you have a garbage disposal installed on your sink you can connect the dishwasher drain hose to the side port on the garbage disposal. That's what that little port is for anyway. If you do have a garbage disposal and hook the dishwasher hose to it then make sure you take a hammer and screw driver and knock out the little plastic plug that's inside the garbage disposal port before hooking up the hose to it, if you don't you'll flood your kitchen.

If you don't have a garbage disposal on your sink, then you're going to have to replace a piece of your sink's drain piping with a wye (Y) tailpiece. The tailpiece has a small branch that comes off it to where you can connect the dishwasher drain hose.

Regardless of which way you hook up the drainage and water lines, make sure you test out the work you did by running the dishwasher and keeping an eye on it. I can't tell you the number of times i've seen people hook up stuff like this and not test it and then when they go to use the dishwasher it floods the kitchen..... usually when people are sleeping at night. Test your work.

Re dishwasher unit / sgs46m78au. water pipe/hose/ connections


The water connection is the smaller of the two and generally near the front of the machine, usually a threaded fitting on a electric solenoid will need a pipe to compression 90 fitting if its not already installed, it needs to be hooked to the hot water and that can be found on the left side going up to the sink faucet to be sure run some hot water and the side that gets warm is the correct one, you will need to turn off the water and install a T to connect the dishwasher if an unused shut off is not already there for the dishwasher. The drain line takes a hose and clamp and will hook into your drain iether through a dishwaser t or the disposal if you have one has a connection for it.
