Question about Kenmore 17459 Free-standing Dishwasher
Our kenmore portable dishwasher was working fine more a couple months but now the snap on fitting keeps popping off during the cycle spraying water all over the place. It seems the small white plastic things on the inside of the head are stripped. Is there a way to replace just the head part of the hose instead of replacing the entire hose?
Go to www.searspartsdirect.com and you can search by your model number for the dishwasher or any other kenmore part. The schematics magnify as you mouse over them and then you can scroll down to see the matching part number. The part 3378117 is the whole hose assembly including the faucet coupler and the full length of the hoses. Notice that the part number 3378117 has been substituted with W10217197. When I Googled for "W10217197 dishwasher" there were a number of vendors selling that part including ApplianceZone.com selling it for $20 less than Sears and other vendors. Unfortunately the way the faucet coupler is crimped onto the hoses you have to replace the full length of hose [not just the coupler] but I have a problem that requires the whole hose. I've opened the cabinet up - which required a star headed driver - and from there it's just a matter of removing basic connectors inside the box.

Actually I have that problem as well. Yo do not have to replace the entire hose assembly. There is a small kit you can buy that is called "Collar AW" that you can get from any appliance parts store. There is also a part number but I do not have it in front of me right now. The kit is usually around $20-$25 and includes 4 new "teeth", spring, head and locking C-clamp. They usually only last about a year or so but it is cheaper than buying a whole new hose assembly and having to tear apart your dishwasher to assemble it. I will find the part number and post it shortly. Hope this helps.
