What can you do if a new faucet was recently installed in the kitchen and the drain vent next to the faucet shoots like a geyser when the dishwasher is turned on?
\n. \n Answer My guess is your garbage disposer was also replaced and they forgot to knock out the plug before connecting the disposer hose/drain\n. \n. \nIt sounds like yo…u have a vacuum breaker on the drain for the dish washer. This is probably just a coincidence but your vacuum breaker needs to be replaced or repaired. It really has nothing to do with the faucet installation.
This is actually something that my father did successfully. It waseasy. He just went to a home improvement store and found all thenecessary pipe fittings to convert the hose(s…) to the houseplumbing pipe(s) he was going to tie into, and found an outlet thatwas hidden(if you don't have an outlet, maybe you could conceal aheavy extension cord from someplace close), and he parked it inplace, and built in the cabinet around it.
Can you install a new faucet with an extra spray outlet and use the dishwasher vent hole in the sink thereby connecting the dishwasher drain directly to the disposal?
Answer dishwasher drain \n. \nNot sure what you mean by dishwasher vent hole, but you probably mean the air gap fitting. Some dishwashers connect directly to the disposal, …with the tube going up a little to prevent stuff from going back to the dishwasher. But as for removing the air gap fitting, if you have it already, it may depend on where you are. California plumbing code requires a dishwasher air gap fitting above the flood level rim, even if you have a disposer, but I'm not sure if the national code also requires. In any case, if a code requires it, it may be a good idea not to remove the air vent. I would check your local code. You may want to consider a faucet with a built in sprayer instead.
Answer . Yes. It is built on small wheels so it can be moved about easily. Usually more exspensive than a built in unit because it has two finished sides and a finished top… that a built in unit does not have. You simply let it set in a convienient place in your home and load it with dirty dishes. when it is full, you wheel it over to your sink. your faucet shoud have a special fitting on the end of it. your dishwasher then plugs into the wall, the hose hooks onto your faucet and you turn on your hot water. then turn on your appliance and the dishes are done.. Answer . I recently purchased a portable dishwasher at Chicago stores. Its very cute.
There is a fitting available that you put on the end of the faucet. Take the screen off the end of the spout and this fitting screws on. It is like a quick connect for an air …hose if you are familiar with that.
Some may have a water heating element inside of them, so they are not dependent on having hot water available.
What are some options for hooking up my portable dishwasher to the sink if the connector doesn't fit on the faucet?
Answer . by an adapter at a hardware store, one end fits the washer connection and the other fits on the faucet
Yes, you certainly do.
You DON'T ... you use either Teflon packing or Graphite packing "string" does not last
If you need to replace a portable dishwasher but the top matches the counter can you take it off and put it on a new one?
Yes, you certainly can. I bought and old portable dishwasher with achipped up and ugly top. Here's how: Open the door of thedishwasher and inspect the underside of the top. Yo…u'll notice acouple of screws holding some metal brackets (attached to thedishwasher) to the top. Just unscrew them (they'll be located frontand back, probably) and lift off the top. Measure it and have apiece of butcher block cut to the same measurements. Then just fitthe new top on the old dishwasher brackets and screw the screws uptight. I did this recently and it turned out great. Plus, the butcherblock top now goes with everything.
The attachments for portable dishwashers are not universal, and donot fit all faucets. To fix this, a person can buy an attachmentfor their faucet the matches the dishwasher.
Technically you can, but it is not advisable, as it is not weighted properly and as a result will be unstable when a rack of dishes is extended outside the cabinet of the dish…washer.
I have one that was purchased in May of 2008. You can call Maytag with your serial number and they could tell you when your machine was purchased.
If you want to know the year your dishwasher just call the # that should be on the inside of the unit, give them the model # and they will tell you what year it is.
Yes, if you get the proper attachment to hook up the water line from the d/w to the faucet. Don't forget that the d/w emits quite a bit of water. Could create splashing and th…e drain pipes for the basin might not be able to handle that amount of water if they are plugged up.
