Do I need to replace the adapter for the faucet areator for my portable dishwasher.


Probably. If you didn't discard the package of extra fittings that came with the dishwasher, you may find the correct adapter/aerator fitting in there. Otherwise, try contacting the manufacturer of the dishwasher. Be sure to provide the make and model of the new faucet along with the model number of the dishwasher.

Do you leave the water on from the faucet?


Hi Melva,

You need to turn the water off to connect the dishwasher, but the water from the faucet should be on to run it. See the video below for more information:

How to install


Free standing dishwashers do not need "installation". Inlet hose simply connects to standard faucet and exhaust set in sink. If you have a fancy faucet that is incompatible with your faucet, you could get creative and unscrew the faucet head and connect the dishwasher inlet hose to it.

There is a connector the has to be on the faucet in order to connect properly to the faucet. Go to a hardware store and tell them you need the connector for your dishwaher to connect to your kitchen faucet. There are two dif ones. They are only a couple dollars each.

I have to connect a 'Y' piece connector to my dishwasher as there is currently no cold water getting to it. How do i go about doing this?


If I'm not mistaken only hot water goes to the dishwasher. What you have is a valve with two outlets usually 1/4 or 3/8 one goes to supply side of sink faucet and other to the supply line of the dishwasher. This valve connects to the hot water supply line of the house. The stub outs should be close to the D/W. If you want to use cold water then you will have to connect this valve to the cold water supply and then connect one side to the dishwasher and the other to the the cold side of sink faucet. Also I believe that dishwashers need the water to be at a certain temperature +/- 150 degrees.
Home Depot/Lowes sell the valves fairly cheap. Hope this helps.

Faucet Attachment Leaks


If your dishwasher leaks, check these:Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Hoses

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

1. Lower rack
2. Spray arm
3. Spray arm support
4. Wash/drain impellers


Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.


Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak. 


Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.
thanks for using FixYa
