Bosch SHU992SUC Dishwasher does not drain. It's not clogged in the external hose, the filters are not dirty. I moved the Dishwasher outside and ran it with the input attached to the garden hose and the output drain hose laying on the ground so there is absolutely no chance of restriction due to the way it's plumbed in. This model does not even show up on Bosch web site. I guess I have to start taking apart the machine blind with no service manual. Ideas? It's less than 10 years old I think. M

Broken fitting The plastic curved piece that attaches the hose to the white fitting on the back of the dishwasher broke, and I need a replacement.  I have been to Home Depot and they don't have anything to fit it, and I was told to go back to the manufacturer for a replacement piece but have looked online and can't find anything that would allow me to order the part.  Help!??

Karcher 1150. Most of the water input is leaking out from under the machine and the remaining stream from the bayonet is similar to what one would get from a weak garden hose. Bought about 1 year ago and used about twice. Can it be repaired?

My new Frigidaire dishwasher (FDB2415LFC) has not been used but is out of warranty. It has a leak with water dripping from two connectors (may be the heat coils) attached to the bottom of the dishwasher (located in the center). Why would water be dripping from this location and what is the repair solution? Should I try to return the dishwasher and obtain a replacement?

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

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.


You should be able to find extension or replacement hoses that you can use to extend the existing hoses at a hardware store. If you need to join two hoses that have female connectors, adaptors with two male connections are available. ... Dishwashers

We're trying to install our dishwasher and there is a 3rd hose attached on the side. It appears to be a drain of some kind, part number, we think, printed on it is FRU 10967 19/07/04 08:33 Can you tell us what it is and where and how to attach. The one it's replacing only had the water hose and the drain hose, no third hose. Thanks


I just installed my Bosch dishwasher a few days ago and wondered about the same thing. The instructions for hooking up water supply and drain lines did not mention this third hose at all. \012\012However, 'the third hose' (which appears open on ... Bosch 24 in. SHU43 Built-in Dishwasher

We just hooked up our old built in GE dishwasher and the water is shooting out the left side of the unit where the black water hose enters the tub. Shouldn't the water be entering into the wash arm? The hose isn't clogged. It attaches to a white plastic piece that is part of the unit itself. The water is entering both the tub but also shooting out of 2 slits approx 1 1/2" each. located right below where u attach the hose.. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I am trying to install a new Maytag MDBH945AWB Dishwasher and have to run the drain hose under the machine in order to get it to the sink. Each time I try to use the hose that comes with the machine it snaps in two and breaks. I have tried to look for a replacement hose that would stand up to the abuse but all I can find is the original. Is there a replacement I can get that is more flexible than the one that comes with it? At this point I am rather embarrased about going back to Home Depot

I am replacing the drain hose on my LG Dishwasher LDS5811BB. The new hose they gave me has an additional piece connected onto the hose. I don't know what it is or what it is for. The original drain hose was composed soley of a gray hose with the to end connectectors. This new hose is similar with an additional white, hard plastic, U-shaped hose with a black hose extending off the end of the U-shaped end. Is this an air gap extension, and if so, what do I connect it to or can I cap it off?

Hello, I purchased a Kitchen Aid Architect II series KUDSO3FTPA3 ~ two years ago. It is deigned so you can put your own panel on it. Duw to a design issue with my cabinets I was not able to add my own panel and wanted to purchase the stainless panel to cover the front of the dishwasher.

I set up a drip system years ago and now am looking to replace it (old, worn, leaks) but the problem is this-I can't push any fitting (be it connectors, tees, etc) onto the main hose. Both hose and fittings are 1/2''. The fittings in the original system were not near as difficult to use-I also tried hot water (fittings) and ice water (hose), nothing. Is there any size difference between the old and new components?

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. Are there adapter kits avail to do this? This way we wouldnt have to keep taking the hose on and off from the faucet.

Soap feed The soap feed hose on my Karcher 2650 does not suck up the soap into the washer. I pulled off the connector piece that the hose is connected to. I can blow through the hose.

It seems like it is supposed to drop down and allow some soap through when the water is running. I found a loose(attached to nothing) gasket, looks like a little donut.

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 Miele 24 in.

The fuse in the plug keeps blowing. Initially it would run for a while - sometimes 3 or 4 cycles - before blowing. It now blows the fuse the second that I plug in to the socket, even with the on/off button on the front of the dishwasher set to off.I'm keen to take it apart, but it's full of water as it blew mid-cycle. Is there a clever way to empty the machine without the power being on, or do I need bits of hose and sponges?A schematic blow up would also be extremely helpful.

We've run several bottles of Dishwasher Magic through in the past few weeks which has only helped the problem a little.

What's the average life expectancy of a lowend dishwasher like ours? would it be more cost effective to replace it rather than to sp


It would cost you at least the 200.00 to have it replaced since the pump cost 150.00 and you would have labor added. It should last longer than it did if that's what's wrong with it. I would first observe to see if the upper spray arm is spinning and ... Dishwashers
