GE portable dishwasher connector hose slips off faucet adapter

We've been using our GE portable dishwasher for a year with our current faucet adapter w/ no problems, but now the hose connector head won't stay on the faucet adapter as soon as we turn on the water. we're pretty sure it is not the faucet adapter as it is metal and hasn't eroded or worn down, but we think it might be the plastic inner ring inside the dishwasher connector, that might be worn down and so won't stay on the adapter. suggestions??? we've already taken our question to a local repair shop which looked up the model no. of our dishwasher for a kit to fix the issue w/o luck...

If you just replaced the connector and it won't stay on, replace the adaptor on the faucet.

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.

I have a portable ''GE quiet power'' portable dishwasher and the hose won't fit on my new faucet - is there some sort of adaptor I can buy for the sink so it will fit properly?


Yes, you need to know whether your faucet is male or female thread (threads on outside or inside) and buy an adapter that will fit into the faucet where the aerator normally sits. These are generally available in the plumbing section of your local hardware store. Make sure you know your diameters as well (O.D. stands for Outside Diameter and is usually male thread where as I.D. stands for Inside Diameter and is usually female thread)

Connector to the faucet for GE Nautilus portable dishwasher


We just bought a used version of the GE Nautilus and we were able to get a generic "fits most portable dishwashers" adapter and it worked great. We went to Fred Meyer (which I believe is a Kroger company in the NW) and it was the only one they had. It only cost $3.99. The brand is Plumb Craft by Waxman and the model number is 76-127. Dishwasher Faucet Aerator. Hope this helps!

Good Luck!

Danby portable dishwasher 1805W hose too short. Where I can find a extension hose.


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.

Never had a portable, put connector on tap and it blasts off when turn on water


I am assuming that you have the appropriate adapter on your faucet.

You are not actually getting the connector attached to the faucet.

Pull down on the locking collar while lifting the hose connector onto the faucet adapter.

When the connector snaps into place, release the locking
collar.
Turn the hot water on slowly until it is all the way on.
