Answers :

Go to a place that sells plumbing supplies.

\015\012There, you will be able to buy an appliance hose and the fitting which is usually used to plumb these into the domestic water system (a stop valve with a compression fitting for hard tube on one end and a thread to take the hose on the other).
\015\012
\015\012If you're replacing you're old machine with a new one, all you'll need to do is to trim the existing tube at a convenient place (with the water supply turned off) and fit the new stop valve. New dishwashers usually come with a hose, and that just screws onto the threaded end of the new stop valve.
\015\012
\015\012Hints: The hose seals onto the metal fitting using a rubber washer that just sits between the two faces. This system works really well provided you don't try to "help" it with PTFE tape or anything like that. Moistening the threads with a drop of water to lubricate them sometimes helps, but then all you need to do is to assemble the joint (checking the rubber washer hasn't dropped out) and do the plastic nut up finger tight. Check it for leaks when you first use the machine. If it's all right for the first five minutes, it'll be all right for ever.
\015\012
\015\012If you're trying to put your old machine back in, but with a hose to make it easier to move, you will need a second fitting with the same combination of connections as you used to connect the hose to the household plumbing - you may be able to get one without a built-in stop valve, but if you can't it doesn't really matter. Proceed as before, but attach a short stub of the tube you trimmed out in stage 1 to the inlet of the machine (using the existing coupling) and make the new fitting off to that.

I have a Husky pressure washer with a Honda 2600psi engine. Problem is, no water will come from the pressure hose. I connected the water w/out the pressure hose and water flows thru strongly. I then connected the pressure hose w/out the wand and water flowed thru the hose fine. When I connect the wand and pull the trigger, nothing. I have replaced the wand and that was not the problem.

Removed rear toe-plate to detect leak. Leak caused by broken drain hose. Hose replaced. To do this the unit was tipped forward onto its front door to allow access to the base area. Water allowed to drain out the front base area. Unit re-assembled but now does not switch on. Water connected. Base-plate dry. No water was detected at upper-front control panel. Power is connected and reaching unit ( multi-meter test ). Tipping the unit forward seems to be the cause. Is there any fuse,

Had the Northstar 3000 psi Pressure Washer for 2 months and it started leaking oil from the pump during use. Took it to Northern and they are replacing the pump under warranty but said it was likely because I was using quick connects on my garden hose coupling and that was restricting the water flow making the pump overheat. They said never to use quick connects on the garden hose unless the opening is at least 5/8". Does anyone make such a quick connect? I hate having to screw the garden hose o
