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 .

Diameter of fuel line for 1995 carolla

Are you talking the Fuel Line (Metal) or Hose (Rubber)?

Here are some facts you need to know to work with the OEM fuel lines.
  1. The threaded fittings used in the fuel system are a bit strange considering this is a Japanese vehicle. There are two fitting sizes used: 1/8-28 BSPT (Yes the first one is a British Pipe thread!) and 13mm x 1.5. (The diameter I measured on this fitting is .504, which is larger than a 12mm fitting (.472), but smaller than a 14mm (.532) This would logically make it a 13mm. It it NOT a 1/4-BSPT as I had orginally thought.) There appears to be no such thing as a 13mm compression fitting available for purchase. If you should find a source for these, PLEASE let me know!
  2. The female threads on the carb inlet, glass fuel filter inlet and outlet, and the fuel pump inlet and outlet are 1/8-28 BSPT. (So are the intake manifold small threaded holes and the block holes for the oil pressure sensor and oil lines. )
  3. There are two thread adapters (Toyota calls these Unions) used in the Cruiser fuel line system: a straight female 1/8-28 BSPT to 13mm x 1.5, and a 90 degrees female 1/8-28 BSPT to 13mm x 1.5. The 90 degree fitting is only used on the fuel pump outlet to adapt the fuel pump to the hard line.
  4. The OEM hard fuel line is 8mm in diameter (.314"). 5/16" (.312") is close enough in size to not matter much.
  5. OEM soft (rubber or the clear plastic) fuel lines are no longer available.

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 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.

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)

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.
