Question about Danby 22 in. DDW396 Free-standing Dishwasher
I bought my Danby countertop dishwasher second hand yesterday. I know this will sound stupid BUT do i keep the tap open (on) while the dishwasher is running? And for how long? Will it over flow if the water tap is kept on? Or because it is pressurized it will only consume the water needed and keep the flowing water at bay. Has anyone realized in the entire instructions for operation not once does it mention "turn tap on" ??!!!! I do not want to come home to a water filled apartment!
Yes you need to leave the tap on as water is required for the rinse cycle. Once the entire wash completes, you can disconnect but remember to first turn off the tap and push the button on the connector to release the pressure.
There is no dire need to do this right away but as a rule I always ensure that the tap is off & the hose disconnected if I am going to bed or going out, just in case the hose or a connection springs a leak. I learned the hard way with my clothes washer which connects to the tap in the same way. I went to bed and left everything connected and one of the hoses sprang a leak. It was at least an hour later that the noise of the water woke me and by then the floor was flooded and some water apparently had come down into the apartment below. Luckily, nothing a sincere apology couldn't remedy.

Yes you need to turn the tap on and leave it on. Otherwise you will burn out the pump.
