Supply line hookup

I just need to know what size threaded adapter will make with the fitting on the dishwasher for the supply line. I was surprised this wasn't included but it's not on the packing list.

    I had foolishly put the old dishwasher on the street  and it was gone so I went to a real hardware store, told the clerk what I wanted and bought it, after convincing him my supply line was 1/2".  So the adaptor  I needed was 3/8 threaded male x 1/2 compression.

Ther are several sizes .Are you replacing one that was there before??If sl you have to see the "hot" valve and use the exact size that will fit that.The end that goes into the valve of D/W is a common fitting .

How to fit Inlet hose and Water discharge hoses online manual not clear enough


the hose connections should be 1/2 : NTP thread ( normal 1/2 tap and garden hose fittings ) the inlet hose comes from a pressure source so it will be a screw on fitting at each end
Y fittings are available from a hardware shop if you want to run hot water as well as cold but some machines heat their own water to near boiling for better hygiene and drying of dishes
next the same screw on fitting ( as on a tap)) should fit on the pump outlet
as the pump discharge is low pressure the fitting can have a hose tail ( plain piece with a barb at the end that the hose pushes over)with the hose pushed on and held in place with a hose clamp
the same for the other end but the tail should be part of the sink drain ( all fittings can be from a hardware shop in the garden hose section) S bend so push it on there , again with a hose clamp
check the size as the pump fitting may be 3/4 not 1/2 inch as drain hoses can be larger , but the principle of fitting is the same

If the supply line is leaking it could be a 3/8 supply line maybe the rubber washer built in the line is shot try replacing the supply line.they are about 15.00 at home depot.do not over tighten the new line you could damage it.some times people cross the thread types on these connection you have pipe thread and compression threads that is the best way to explain it I know of.Just make sure you pay attention to the threads.

The supply water connection on the bottom of the dishwasher has an ever so slight leak. Not the compression part, but the larger connection that goes directly into the dishwasher. The directions say not to...


Hello, W/D here.
Sometimes you just have to pull the fitting back out, and start again. That's about where we are now. Shut the water off, disconnect the supply line and remove the fitting from the dishwasher. Clean the old teflon off of the fitting and the connection on the dishwasher. While holding the fitting in your left hand, with the threads facing right, wrap the threads, going over the top away from you, three wraps.
Then re-install. Too loose would be movable by hand, and too tight would be approaching "I can't go any further". Somewhere in between, there's a point where the fitting gets firm, and you can feel that it's getting tighter. At that point, get it into the correct position for installing your supply line. What you don't want is to have to make nearly another full rotation of the fitting to get it into position if it's nearly there before that. You don't want it so tight that you might crack the fitting or the connection on the dishwasher. Just take your time, work by feel, and gauge where the fitting needs to be, balanced against how tight you want it.
Best regards, --W/D--

You will want to get a Dishwasher supply line kit from home depot or Lowe's. You can also get them at any local hardware store. It will come with adapters to fit any fitting you have. here is a link below to see what they look like.

Whirlpool dishwasher Leaking water


Hello there:
Troubleshooting Leaks
If the dishwasher leaks, and you know the problem is not related to tub overfilling, the pump, or inlet valve problems, the plumbing connections may be faulty. Most dishwashers are connected to the water supply with metal pipe fittings, and the leak could be at these fittings. If the fittings are threaded, tighten them with an adjustable wrench. If this doesn't work, chances are the threads are stripped or the fitting is cracked or otherwise damaged. In this case, replace the fitting.
Most dishwashers discharge used water through a pipe or a hose connected to the drain or garbage disposer under the kitchen sink. If the drain line is made of flexible hosing, it may have cracked from prolonged exposure to hot water. Examine the hose; if it's damaged, replace it. If the hose is leaking at its connections with the disposer or dishwasher, tighten the fittings or clamps at the connections, or replace the clamps. Also check for water leaks around inlet valves, drain valves, and anywhere you see flexible hoses and hose connections. Leaks at clamps can be stopped by tightening or replacing the clamps. Leaks in hoses can be eliminated by replacing the hoses.
I HOPE THAT YOU FIND THIS INFORMATION VERY HELPFUL

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)

How do I attatch the new plastic water lines to a dichwasher I am going to install? What fittings etc do I use?


Buy an install kit for the dishwasher. (preferably with a braided steel covered hose) That has an end that will fit the dishwasher, then ask at the hardware store what you will need to adapt to the plastic line. I really can't tell you without more information as to what kind and size of plastic pipe you have. This will be a standard plumbing part and will probably cost well under $5.

Hookup at water supply


I do believe so.  Check your installation guide for more info.  If you purchased a water line designed for dishwashers, it should have the 90º elbow included.

Dishwasher installation problem


I have had this problem in the past as well. They state that you have all the parts you need to install the dishwasher, however that is assuming that it is under ideal conditions. You will need an adapter to attach to the fill line to make it match the size on the diswasher. They usually only cost about $3.00.
