Hello, We have had this dishwasher for a while, and the plastic faucet adapter has been increasingly leaking. Yesterday I noticed a more serious leak when I snapped on the little white plastic adapter onto the tap (which has the metal connector installed) and started the water, with water spurting upwards. Afterwards, the machine did not go through the cycle - after I started, it was purring, water came out, and after a few minutes, the error was beeping. I have repeated this a couple times, and I even noticed that in one of the trials the faucet leak stopped for half a minute, indicating some water intake.
Could this be a simple error at the faucet? Or if there is water flow available, the Danby should be able to intake it, meaning that there is an error inside the washing machine?

IF IT IS NEW, PARTS SHOULD HAVE A 1 YEAR WARRANTY.
GO BACK TO THE PLACE YOU PURCHASED IT AND HAVE THEM ORDER A NEW CONNECTOR. IT SHOULD COME WITH
THE HOSES AND ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS UNSCREW THE
HOSES FROM THE BACK OF THE DISWASHER AND INSTALL THE NEW ONES. IF IT IS OUT OF WARRANTY, MAKE SURE ALL OF THE SCREWS ARE TIGHT IN THE CONNECTOR. OTHERWISE, REPLACE THE CONNECTOR.

Standard garden hose has same threads/adapter size.for trouble shooting run garden hose to washer try running cycle. Give it 20 minutes to finish previous cycle as it may not be trying to run what appears on settings. Water won't fill unless cycle that will allow such is chosen and active.
you are going to want to make sure that the threads on the hose match the faucet and also make sure that the gasket is in place you might even need to get a adapter for the unit to hook up to the faucet.
i would consult the manufacture or the users guide for further help
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.
If your dishwasher leaks, check these:Main tub seal Door gasket or seal Water-inlet valve Hoses
Main tub seal Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.
The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:
1. Lower rack 2. Spray arm 3. Spray arm support 4. Wash/drain impellers
Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.
Door gasket or seal Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.
Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.
The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.
Hoses Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose. thanks for using FixYa
