Yes usually you will need to repair because bracket inside wore down it cost you around 40.00 and is very hard to find after alot of reserach I found a local guy to help me and it works great , Take off retainer clip and thing will come apart both spring and bracket then you pull four clips out and replace all of the following

Food remains on outside and inside of glasses and other is not stuck on and rinse easily at the sink faucet.

A suggestion I could give is to check your water pressure. Low water pressure can easily be the root of this problem. Perhaps no water at all is being put into the dishwasher. The root of the no water prblem could be a broken pump.

Kenmore Ultra wash III will no longer stay connected to faucet after filling...what part should I replace the hose or the faucet adaptor? When we turn the faucet on to start up the dishwasher it falls...

if your adapter that hooks up to the faucet has 4 little white plastic jaws inside it then it can be rebuilt. there is a kit that replaces those 4 jaws, the spring, the attaching clip and the internal seal.. usually runs around 10 buks or so. if i was at the store i could tell you the part number without needing your model number, but any good appliance parts store should be able to locate them for you..
hope this helps,
best of luck,

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
Turn the hot water on slowly until it is all the way on.
