Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
I would like to wait until I have tried the rubber ring to rate this answer. If it works, my rating will be high.
The rubber ring that fits a hose didn't fit the dishwasher slot (I tried a few before and forgot to mention). I'll see if I can get a smaller one.
I appreciate that I got a rapid answer. I went to the hardware store and bought an assortment of washers. There was no room for them so they didn't help.
If as you said "Thats about the only thing you can do," then thank you for the suggestion.
Bob I`m a differant expert !!
Do you still need help?
If you think the earlier expert missed something, I would be interested to know if there are additional options. If he or she was correct, there is nothing I can do about the problem.
the first thing I need to know to better assist you is .
Where is it leaking from ?
the threads where it screws onto the faucet.
When we got a new faucet set several years ago we had difficulty adapting the dishwasher to the faucet because there was a lot of leakage between the tap and the connection to the dishwasher hose. This had not been the case with our previous faucet.
The hardware store sold me two metal adapters (they suggested I try both a 'long' and a 'short' adapter). The long adapter reduced the leakage, but it did not eliminate it.
There is significant leakage between the dishwasher hose and the adapter. Most of the water gets through the hose, so we are able to wash dishes, but we waste a lot of hot water. This is an especial problem if we want to run the dishwasher when we are not home or sleeping, since the leakage continues until we turn off the water.
I can't. The connection snaps shut; there are no threads.
o it is not leaking at the fitting that is atached to the faucet .
it is leaking between the faucett connection and the dishwasher connection .
Try replacing the adapter is about the only other thing you can do .
