Faucet solution for hooking up portable dishwasher

\015 I have a Whirlpool portable dishwasher (at least 17 years old) that hasn't been used for years. When I tried to hook it up to the faucet, the clamp doesn't stay on because the aerator on the faucet doesn't seem to have a ridge or something for it to hold on to. It used to work years ago, but perhaps the faucet was changed in the meantime and I've forgotten. Is there a special sort of faucet aerator that has a ridge or something that will enable the hose attachment to clamp on? I have model #DP3801XLWO.\015

I have a Kenmore Quietguard portable dishwasher which does its job excellently. My problem is that I can't seem to find a proper spigot attachment in a standard hardware store, like Rona, that hooks up to it satisfactorily, or at all.

I have a new faucet now, and so far the dishwasher's faucet attachment won't even stay on when the water's running. I'm wonder where I can get th

My portable dishwasher hose that attaches to the faucet is to short for where I want my portable dishwasher to sit. I would like for it to sit in one spot. I am not allowed to alter or cut holes in the side of cabinets, I am renting. Is there an extension for the hose to the faucet? If not, what can I do to make the hose longer? If I really have to I will cut the two hoses that comes from the dishwasher to the faucet, but I would rather have an extension first.

The adapter on my maytag portable dishwasher comes off the faucet when I try to run it sending water everywhere! We JUST replaced the adapter and hoses, $50 and not the problem. It seems that the plastic pieces (not metal balls) are wearing out as soon as they're used. Does anybody know what I can do or if that isn't the problem, could it be that I have the wrong end on my faucet????? HELP!!
