I just had a Haus slimline dishwasher delivered and have tried to set it up. I have followed the instructions to the letter but the water inlet hose keeps leaking out water when you move the dishwasher into place after attaching the hoses. I have tried the manufacturer's hose they provided and two spare i have in my cupboard. I even went out and bought some 3/4" washers and added extra washers to the inlet hose, but it still leaks. What is wrong?

Connector hose we tried to adapt the dishwasher hose so that instead of hooking it up to faucet, it connects to the the undersink water pipe, using tubing and clamps and a shut off valve. we can't get it to stop leaking where the clamp is.

I have a Karcher B402 Pressure Washer and when i plug it in and turn it on - nothing happens, not a sound. I have checked the fuse and the plug itself and this did not help. I contacted a service technician and they said it would cost £45/hr to have a look and it probably wasn't worth fixing! Is there anything i can try to narrow down the problem/fix it myself. Any ideas what might have gone wrong? Sorry i can't give you more info. Cheers

I have a newly installed Kitchenaide dishwasher. The copper pipe is secure under the sink and appears connected properly to the dishwasher. When I turn the shut off valve on, water begans to run from underneath the dishwasher. There is no water under the sink. The plastic hose does not seem to be the problem.


You should be able to remove the panel below the door and see where water inlet hose is connected to the solenoid valve. I'd bet that's where it's leaking since you say it's newly installed. ... Dishwashers

It was okay when I purchased it from Home Depot last spring but now I've tried putting new gas in it, spraying carb cleaner, new spark plug, and it still won't start. I only ran it for about 30 minutes when I first purchased it. The guy at the service desk at Home Depot told me that the water hose should be attached and turned on while trying to start. Is this true or would this be starting the motor und
