The drain hose vibrates while dishwasher is running unless sink faucet is on, which stops the vibration.


Try throttling back (reducing the water flow) the valve that feeds the machine. With the sink tap/faucet running the pressure into the dishwasher is reduced. Is the feed pipe kinked or blocked in some way as there might be a sensor in the machine that doesn't like it when water is "jetted" in under pressure. It would act like putting your thumb over the end of a hose when washing a car.

Why would have a water leak from the bottom of the dishwasher or the right side down by the floor between the dishwasher and the wall to the left side of sink? Leak happenns when running the faucet or...


You could have a leek in the trap under the bench, (the drain plug)
Check the trap is tight,
Check the drain pipe is connected to the sink correctly
Maybe the water is leaking through the bench (there might be a gap / hole in, or on, the side of the bench) some sika sealant could fix this.
Hope this helps, don,t forget to rate or add a comment

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)

Hose does not fit on sink faucet


Yes, the adapter was the answer!!! I went to the Sears Service Center and bought one, under $10. HURRAY! And say hello to softer hands . . .

Faucet connector for an old Kenmore portable dishwasher


Here is the part you need to fix the unicoupler: http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-612568-%3d%3di612568&PartID=612568 The ring didn't fit on mine, so I just used the old one. Pull back the old ring, pry off the c-spring with your nails, and replace the coil spring, teeth, ring, and c-spring.

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.
