I need a manual for a Danby Model DDW1899WP-1 portable dishwasher


Danby has the manual for the DDW1899WP-1 on the product information site: https://www.danby.com/en-us/products/kitchen-en-us/ddw1899wp-1/ . Look in the right hand column as you scroll down. The direct link to the Owner's Manual is currently: https://www.danby.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/DDW1899WP-1_EFOM_201504212.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Danby portable Dishwasher advances from pre-rinse to dry and then beeps continuously and dry light continues to blink. Doesn't proceed, reset or stop cycle. Just continues to blink.


I actually found out (one of) the solution to this by accident. It could be the water source is not providing enough pressure

I purchased a Danby DDW1899W-1 and, using the connector screwed into my utility sink in the basement, I connected the water. When I tried to run a cycle, I had the same results (filled/emptied 4-5 times, beeped and went to dry cycle).

My alternate, long term plan was to put a Y-splitter (with shutoffs) on the hot water line for my washer, and have one hose go to the dishwasher when needed. I purchased a washer line hose from Home Depot and a 3/4" to Quick Connect fitting from Ace Hardware and then connected the dishwasher to this.

And, Voila! Problem solved!!!

To confirm this was the solution, after the first completed cycle, I connected back to the faucet and, once again had the fill/empty/beep/dry problem. Reverting to the split washer water feed, it was able to run the cycles properly (again!!!)

So you may just need a line that will supply more water pressure to the dishwasher.

Good luck and, hopefully, this solves the problem.

Water softener


Marsena, I am at the point where I'm going to call a repairman. I'm very disappointed that I have a brand new appliance, and no means of having this issue handled. This is a great dishwasher otherwise, but I could not recommend it due to this problem.

Salt water error message when I have a water softener already


I feed Danby dishwasher salt whenever he asks (buy it by the case online). Still produces marginally clean dishes.

Danby portable dishwasher ddw1899wp starts taking in water and then stops working with pre-rinse light blinking. Please help me on this issue. Any answer would be much appreciated.


If the water level sensor does not electrically shut off when the level needed is reached, the pre-rinse cycle will error out thinking that the level has not been reached. That sensor is a float device and probably needs to be replaced...

I have a water-softener dispenser in my Danby 1899 W Portable diswasher. I do not know how to fill the dispenser and I cannot run the dishwasher until this is resolved. The user manual provides no...


I couldn't find it either for a long time:

1) Pull out the bottom rack as if you were putting dishes there
2) Look at the bottom of the dishwasher and there will be a white circle (near the upper left side) where you can add the water softener.

I didn't use any for a while and the dishwasher worked great so I'm not sure why you can't run it.

Water not flowing into Danby 18"


Okay, this might seem crazy, but it worked. I spent the last 2 days trying to contact Danby customer service to no avail, so I came back here to look for solutions. Found two:
(1) Someone said to open the little rubber cover under the front right of the machine...I couldn't find such a cover.
(2) Someone said to pull off the front plastic panel...mine doesn't seem to be removeable.
So! I turned my Danby DDW1805 upside-down (!) to see if I could locate the aforementioned rubber cover, and a bunch of water drained out of the machine. This is what both solutions above said I wanted to happen, so I flipped it back right-side up and hooked it back onto my faucet.
Golden. Works perfectly again.
