SOURCE: The plastic connector separates from the metal faucet attachment when I turn on the water (PS I have the Danby 496)

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.

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

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.

Hotpoint dishwasher


Did you have a dishwasher before? If so, you must have had a sink tail piece with a dishwasher drain coming off the side. For the connection, you may have to get an adapter to fit the end of the dishwasher drain hose to the sink tail piece. Take all pieces to hardware store if necessary to get an adapter which fits. After you connect the drain hose, make sure that the drain hose has a "high loop", meaning that the hose curls up at least 6 inches above the connection point before it goes down again. This is important to keep sink waste from getting back into the diswasher hose if the sink drain backs up.
