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

I have a Husky 2600 PSI power washer with the Honda GCV160 engine that I can't get to start. 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


You can eliminate the motor by unbolting the pump from it and then if it will start the problem is with the pump or the unloading valve.If it does not start with the pump removed then you check for spark and get the carb cleaned or have a kit put in ... Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

I am trying to replace the GUIDE RAIL BRACKET ASM on my GE dishwasher (model no. GSM1800JWW). How do I either: (a) remove the old brackets, and then install the new ones; or (b) remove the rollers from my new brackets, so that I could slip these rollers onto the old brackets still in the dishwasher, saving the trouble of removing the old brackets in the first place? Either solution would be acceptable, but right now I can't figure out how to do either one without breaking something. Thank you v

Hello, My GE dishwasher stopped draining. Model Number: VSD2304JOOWW I emptied out the dishwasher of the liquid, removed the cover and checked the filter. (Didn't look bad.) Checked the drain pipe under the sink and there was a little debris (slime) but very minimal. The garbage disposal was installed at the same time as the dishwasher 3 years ago (brand new place). What else could it be? Any advice would be helpful as my new home seems to be falling apart and it is getting pretty e

WE have a LG dishwasher model LD-14AW3. It recently stopped working properly and stopped draining the water. WE called our dishwasher repair man in and he said he thought it would need a new board and we would be better off to discard the dishwasher.I took the dishwasher downstairs to discard but left it there for awhile as I still had reservations about it. I took it in and hooked it up again it worked very well doing the whole cycle. We brought the dishwasher back up into its place and it con

I have a 7 hp B&G craftsman Pressure washer , if I place an air filter on it ,it wound't start or run , if I remove the air filter it would run like a champ, but after 10 mints , oil would shoot out off the carb like a running faucet , why is it not running with the filter on,.Now am not so sure if the air filter is the correct size , because when I put it on it seem to be a bit on the taller size rather than a perfect fit, thanks for your help , in Hollywood , Reinaldo Roman .

I am having trouble attaching 90 degree brass elbow to the plastic water inlet on my new Maytag Dishwasher. Getting leaks. Teflon tape hasn't worked. Cant seem to get the washer to seat properly when everything is tightened down. Wish the water inlet was not made of plastic. It appears it would seat the gasket properly if the water inlet was made of something more durable.

I recently had the e4 error code on my new world dw60 dishwasher. I have since opened it up and replaced the heater element, which appears to have resolved that issue. However, in the process of doing this I incorrectly installed the flood switch back into place, meaning that it was in its closed position (i.e. the position it would be when activated by a flooded base) when I went to turn the dishwasher back on. I have since opened it back up and correctly installed the flood switch, but I ca

We have been using this model since Sept. 2007.When new, it worked very well. It has over time, performed less then we would expect. Not only do we have to scrub dishes by hand before placing them into washer,they some times require hand washing after being washed by machine. Not only are they dirty, the glasses are covered with a cloudy white film. We have not done any maintenance or service to this dish washer. Does this washer require some sort of service or attention. Please advise. Thanks

A GE triton dishwasher causes hammer noise when stops filling. The sink faucet works fine as do all the other faucets in the house. I cleaned all of the traps in the dishwasher. Because the sink works, I don't think it is a sink valve problem. I turned off the water to the house and drained the system, the air chambers should be good. Is there some component of the dishwasher that could be causing the noise? Would cleaning the pump help? If so, how would I do that?


The cause of the hammering noise, (slamming) is due to the water inlet valve on the Dishwasher (DW) shutting off abrutly once the DW reaches the proper amount of water.\015\012\015\012If this is an older DW, you might want to replace the ... GE Dishwashers

Hi, I'm working on a KUDI02FRSS0 for my neighbor. She complained the door flew open one day during a wash and the door had been very heavy since. A quick check on the internet, and I thought it would be simple... I installed an 8194001 balance kit. Both cords had broken. However, the door was very hard to close, and once you did close it, it would tend to pop open by itself shortly thereafter.
