Plastic hose disconnect Frigidaire dishwasher - sink side

The water pressure caused the plastic hose to disconnect from the assembly on the sink side. Is there a way to snap it back together or do we need to purchase a new connector? Any help?

Most dishwashers connect to the garbage disposal and just have that barbed connection that it clamps onto with a hose clamp, unless that actual connector itself broke off (which wouldn't be pressure related, that would mean someone hit something against it breakin it) You should be able to just use a screwedriver and tighten the hose with the clamp back onto the garbage disposal.

If the plastic connector did break off then you will have to buy a new garbage disposal and replace the whole thing. Which is just a little heavy and time consuming but not all that difficult to do.

Or if it did break off, and your handy with glue, then you could try using a waterproof glue to glue it back on?

Also just a warning, if you try to use the sink, make sure you have a bucket underneath the garbage disposal as water will then leak out the hole where the dishwasher drainage tube was connected until you get it fixed.

How do I replace the drain hose on a Samsung dmt300 dishwasher?


Flip the unit onto its face (put down towels first to protect the face and catch the water that will spill out. Remove the square white access cover on the bottom by removing the 2 screws and gently prying the tabs. Now you see the connection to the drain pump. Disconnect here and route the hose out by removing the metal side cover and snapping open the plastic hose guides. The hose is 13 feet long and routes up the side to prevent water from draining to your d/w from your sink, so a universal replacement won't work, you have to get a new one from samsung.

Want to remove present dishwasher for replacement with a new one. How do you do it.


Most dishwashers are housed in a cabinet next to your kitchen sink.
Not knowing how exactly your machine is set up I will just advise you on common setup features and removal.
First open the doors to kitchen cabinet under the sink. If you see two hoses connected under the sink, they most likely are from your dishwasher. One is an inlet hose which would be connected to a water tap. The other would be a drain hose which would be connected via a clamp to the drain under your sink.
Turn off water tap to remove inlet hose. Unscrew or undo the clamp fixing your drain hose to drain pipe. Note when you remove the drain hose the hole to the drain pipe is exposed. You need to block this off as it will leak water when ever the sink is running. I normally get a plastic bag and twist it inside the hole and tape it off.
Next you need to locate the power cord and plug for the dishwasher. This is normally under the sink cabinet as well. However, check either side of the dishwasher. Sometimes they are behind the dishwasher.
Once you have disconnected the hoses, open dishwasher door. Look on the inside walls of the dishwasher. Some models are screwed into the wall of the cabinet so you need to unscrew machine. The screws go in either from the side walls or from the inside roof of dishwaser to your benchtop.
You need to also remove the kitchen kickboard if one has been installed infront of the dishwasher.
When machine is free open the diswasher door and grab either side of door and gently pull machine out. Have someone help you feed the hoses through as you pull out.
If the machine does not easily pull out check again for hidden anchor screws around the edges of the machine or even clamps which fix the hoses to the cabinet.
If you have issues pulling it out see if you can take some pictures and I will help you.

I would suspect a leak at the fill valve connection, this can happen if the connector works its way back off during operation, especially with flexible lines. Also check to make sure the corner plastic diverter inserts are in the lower corner of the machine on each side or water will sneak out of the corners. (These are semi clear plastic inserts about an inch or so long) Hope this is useful.

Making a metal grinding sound when turns on but dont feel any forks or spoons in it


Garbage disposals can get noisy and sound like they're eating spoons instead of banana peel.
You can put vacuum hose in sink opening and see if something is in there.
As long as disposal disk rotates freely, and disposal is not shaking around and causing pipes to leak, then you can use it until it dies.
Otherwise, the bearing is probably rusted, or something is loose. Disposals rust out and eventually freeze, or the motor slows down and overheats, or they rust a hole and water leaks under sink.

Garbage disposal mechanism cannot be disassembled for repairs.
Here are basic disposal parts:
1) Sink basket that connects to sink and is held with 3 screws from below.
2) Disposal body which connects to sink basket using metal ring.
3) Rubber washer between disposal and sink basket.
4) Dishwasher connects to upper part of disposal with a hose.
5) Electric wire coming from disposal switch connects to disposal near red reset button.
6) Tubular drain pipe connects to side of disposal

I wrote tips for replacing disposals that you can use when disposal gives out.
When I worked apartment maintenance, we replaced disposal with same brand and size disposal.
That way we didn't have to change out sink basket or move pipes around under the sink.
How to: Disconnect 2 nuts on p-trap and trap falls loose.
Rotate steel connector disk that holds disposal to sink basket, and disposal comes off.
Before installing new disposal.
Attach electric wire to new disposal, and push in reset button.
Attach dishwasher tube to new disposal. Knock out plug inside dishwasher opening.
Lift new disposal up into place, and attach to old sink basket.
There is a rubber washer between disposal and sink basket, Use new washer.
Attachment ring catches at three points, all three have to connect.
You can use bottle jack to lift disposal if you have problem.
Re-assemble tubular pipe.

If this is your home, you want new sink basket that comes with new disposal because it looks shiny and new.
Buy a tub of plumbers putty also.
Remove old sink basket and clean sink opening.
Put finger-size roll of plumbers putty around sink opening, and then push new strainer basket into plumbers putty.
Tighten basket from below, wipe away excess putty around sink opening.
Install new disposal as described above.

Tips for tubular pipes:
When taking apart tubular pipes, start at p-trap and take apart as few pieces as needed to do job.
On image above, loosen both upper and lower nuts, trap falls loose, and then work on disposal.
Any tubular drain pipe that gets moved while working under sink needs to be disassembled, cleaned and re-assembled.
Metal pipes have rubber washer >> always use new rubber washers.
Plastic pipes have plastic washers > plastic washers can be cleaned and re-used.
Plastic washers have flat side that goes toward nut, tapered side away from nut.

When reassembling tubular pipe, we use rectorseal on washers and joints.
Slap a good amount on washer just before pushing washer in place and attaching nut.
Rectorseal will ensure tubular drain pipes won't leak.

We bought a new dishwasher because the old one wasn't draining all the way. Same problem with the new one?


The pump is a motor which runs in one direction to spray water in the dishwasher to clean and the opposite direction to drain the water. The problem could be from a clog or kink in the drain hose. Several years ago the drain line would connect to the sink garbage disposal. If the garbage disposal is not draining or the dishwasher connection to the garbage disposal is restricted or clogged the dishwasher will not drain. Under the sink, look at the garbage disposal to see if a rubber hose is connected at the side of the disposal unit. If a hose is connected to the side of the disposal, remove the hose clamp and check for any restrictions from garbage in the inlet or hose. You can use a screwdriver to clean the fitting to the garbage disposal and a wire hanger to free any restrictions in the hose. If the dishwasher does not connect to the garbage disposal it should connect to the sink trap. This is more common with new dishwashers because they have built-in disposals. Disconnect the drain hose from the sink trap and the dishwasher and look for a clog at the sink connection. The dishwasher inlet should have an angled piece of plastic or metal facing downward to prevent the waste from the dishwasher from spraying up into the sink. Do not get to aggressive with the cleaning in order to prevent breaking the angled piece of plastic or metal. Look for any kinks in the hose and try to run water through the hose, but do not use the sink which you removed the drain line from or it could leak under the cabinet. If you see a bad kink replace the hose with a new one. I hope this works and you find the problem without a great deal of time or trouble.

Dishwsher wont drain. never happened before. do not use dishwasher very often.


I would first check where the drain hose from the dishwasher connects to the drain stub under the sink. Remove the hose from under the sink and place it into a bucket. Close the dishwasher door and cancel the cycle to put the dishwasher in a drain cycle. Listen for the drain pump to activate. If water comes out of the hose check the stub where the hose connects under the sink with a screw driver to make sure the spout is clear of debris. If no water comes out of the hose, empty the dishwasher by hand using a plastic cup and when empty remove the hose at the pump under the dishwasher and check to see if there is any debris at this point. Make sure hose is clear from the dishwasher pump to the drain stub under the sink. You will need to place a towel or two on the floor as water left in the bottom of the dishwasher will come out when you remove the hoses. If still no water comes out you may have to disassemble the bump assembly. Not knowing what make and model you have I can't help you past this point.
I hope this is of some help.

Dishwasher does not drain completely and runs out on floor


DIshwasher output is plugged. The drain hose from the bottom goes up and then most times to the drain on the kitchen sink. If the hose is plugged when it attempts to pump water out to the drain, it may find a weak spot ( usually where the hose clamps to the bottom of the dish washer ). Thus the water on the floor.
FIRST DISCONNECT POWER ----- then:
You will need to remove debris at the bottom ( inside ) and remove the kickplate and look to where the hose is attached, for leaks and tighten the hose clamp. If you have paper/plastic/ etc. IN the hose you may have to remove the hose enough to clear the plastic tubing. You can try air or a snake.
It could even be something as a bad output tube ( cracked, worn, mouse eaten hole...etc ). or your kitchen sink is plugged causing this too,to be plugged.

Good Luck

I would put the dishwasher on its back so you can see underneath to check the fill and drain hose to make sure there not damaged in any way to cause it to leak. if it all looks good under there return it upright and remove the front lower kick panel grab a flashlight and start the dishwasher. you shoud be able to see a leak and where it is comming from. its possible it could be from the hose the inlet valve the pump and motor assembly or the plastic tub itself. good luck
