OK, I just bought a house with a portable dishwasher, and i have never used
one before. I figured out that it connects to the sink, but i can not get
the four white grips to hang on to the faucet. I saw other problems where
the person had this problem and had to go the store for a new spout. I
beleive the previous home owners were using the dishwasher just fine.
Somehow i just can not figure out how to get a good solid connection. Can
anybody help or has had this problem?
It's necessary to replace the usual aerator on the spout with an adapter for
portable dishwashers. They come in two sizes..one for Whirlpool type
machines and a slightly larger one for others. Is it possible that the
previous owner replaced the faucet just before you moved in and threw away
the adapter with the old faucet. They only cost a couple of bucks at the
hardware store. One other thought...if you have one of the faucets that
allow you to pull the whole faucet out to use as a rinse hose, it may be
possible that it won't take an adapter. Installed one of these for my
mother and then had to buy a small single temp faucet to install in the
fourth hole in the sink just for her dishwasher.
