Our dishwasher started leaking water a week or two ago, hence I hauled it
out to the garage and started to dismantle it to find the fault.
I cleaned out the (suspected) pipe up to the water-level switch, as well as
unclipping other hoses and cleaning out as much as I could get to.
Trouble is, when I replaced everything there was a leak at the joint from
main water pump to the channel that goes up the side of the machine to the
top spray arm.
The offending area was a little bit of black hose about six inches long
bend in the middle) whose inside diameter is 28mm and the wall thickness of
this black rubber hose is 4mm.
Since I've reseated those compressible spring clips a few times with little
I found a proper jubilee clip and used that instead.
All went fine until last night: drip, drip from under the machine.
Haul it out again, take it to the garage, look for the leak... bingo: same
But now when I dismantle it the inside rough edge of the jubilee clip has
worn its way
through the 4mm hose... aaaaargh!
So now I am in the market for a length of rubber hose about 150mm long, 4mm
thickness (which might be overkill but again it might be absolutely
required) and 28mm
Any help appreciated for a source of said hose; any good spares places out
Google hasn't found for me?
Thanks in advance
