We connect our Malber to the sink, when we use it, with a hose couplling that snaps onto an adapter supplied with the machine. It worked fine when we got the machine, for a couple of months or so, but then started popping off the adapter.
Malber supplied us (no charge) with a new adapter, which solved the problem for another couple of months, but then the same thing again.
The coupling passes water at any pressure so long as the washer is taking in water, but as soon as the intake shuts off, the back pressure forces the hose coupling to pop off the adapter. It can't be recoupled unless the water is turned off at the tap, or until the washer is ready for water intake again. We've tried reducing the water flow, but the coupling won't stay on unless the flow is reduced to an irregular trickle that takes forever to fill the washer for a wash or rinse.
If anyone has experience with this problem and has found a solution, we'd like to know. Many thanks in advance,

If the dishwasher is connected to a spigot on the waste under the sink, check that the end has been cut off the spigot (on the plumbing not the machine hose) or that end stoppers have been removed. Also, check the hose has not been crushed when installed.
If they are quick connect fittings make sure all the water pressure is off the lines. Turn off the RO tank and valve feeding system, open the faucet and try taking lines off again. If no luck, mark the lines with masking tape and cut them a couple inches below faucet to remove. RJ
Most dishwashers connect to the garbage disposal and just have that barbed connection that it clamps onto with a hose clamp, unless that actual connector itself broke off (which wouldn't be pressure related, that would mean someone hit something against it breakin it) You should be able to just use a screwedriver and tighten the hose with the clamp back onto the garbage disposal.
If the plastic connector did break off then you will have to buy a new garbage disposal and replace the whole thing. Which is just a little heavy and time consuming but not all that difficult to do.
Or if it did break off, and your handy with glue, then you could try using a waterproof glue to glue it back on?
Also just a warning, if you try to use the sink, make sure you have a bucket underneath the garbage disposal as water will then leak out the hole where the dishwasher drainage tube was connected until you get it fixed.
No matter what type of sink you purchase, the drain and water-supply connections are generally installed in the same way. Hand-tighten a female adapter onto the drain stub-out at the wall. Slide slip nuts onto the drain arm and the sink's tailpiece. Fit a P-trap in place and tighten the slip nuts by hand. Connect flexible water-supply tubes onto the faucet's tailpieces, and route them to the shut-off valves. Tighten coupling nuts with an adjustable wrench. Remove the faucet aerator, turn on the water, check for leaks at the shutoff valves, and then turn on the faucet to check for leaks in the drain assembly. Replace the aerator.
first thing to check is the connection from the drain hose to the spigot under the sink. in most cases food accumulates there because the hole inside the spigot in not drilled all the way around when the d/w is installed and a "lip" is left where the food stacks onto. if clear check for a kink in the drain hose at the back of the d/w and all the way to the sink. if ok then time to check the drain pump.
Usually when this happens the antenna wire connections have come dislodged. Did you put this in recently? Has the laptop been dropped? The internal antenna wires snap onto this type of internal wireless card and not always snap on secure. THat would be the 1st thing to check.
