I'm going through a Hotpoint dishwasher from the late 80's - model HDA
467-02WH and the water inlet fitting seems to have an odd design. The
nipple for the incoming water hose instead of being a tube, is this
half tube configuration - see attached pic. The rubber hose slides
over this half tube. It's not broken, that's the way it is. Anyone
know why it's configured this way instead of a tube?
Also, the piece has an open configuration as seen in the view of one
just like the one on mine lying on its side. Wondering why this is.
