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.
Answer . I HAVE A PORTABLE WHIRLPOOL AND I GOT A PROFFESIONAL TO DO IT BUT IT WAS 250$ TO INSTALL!!!! YOU CAN INSTALL IT YOURE SELVE YOU HAVE TO BUY SPECIAL TOOLS. OR YOU C…AN CALL A PRO I THINK YOU SHOULD CALL THE PRO. Answer . A friend of mine decided to jump in and install my old roll away portable Kenmore dishwasher today in her kitchen. She ran into a few problems. First some brilliant person raised the level of the sub floor so two cabinets had to be pulled out to get into the spot where it needed to go. So out they came. The cabinet where the dishwasher goes headed out to the trash.. Then she removed some screws and took the outer housing off of the old dishwasher. We were met with a few SPIDERS that were hiding in there. Ewe !. Next problem, this particular Kenmore (made by whirlpool) roll away dishwasher water drain line connects under the dishwasher with a hose that looks like a washing machine hose. This was a plumbing fiasco since she had to add a new hose. She made three trips to the hardware store before she found a threaded brass fitting that she could slide and rubber hose over and tighten it with a hose clamp. Then she had to slide the other end over the drain connection for the garbage disposal.. She had to T into the hot water supply line and connect the water supply with a new hose also.. Lastly we had to put the cabinet back into place. That was a fun job.. And then finally the front panel just below the door is not the same kind as a regular built in dishwasher. It is intended to cover the wheels and attaches to the frame. So, now my husband will be watching the metal bin where he works for a similar dishwasher that is brought for recycling for a new lower front panel. We are lucky that we have this resource available or else we would be calling for a part that would likely be expensive.. Oh, and one thing I failed to metnion. We tried just plugging the dishwasher in to the plug under the sink where the garbage disposal is plugged in (In this case it is a double plug with power to both halves) and guess what we found? It would not work. The voltage must be different. Lucky for us she had a plug right next to the side of the cabinet. We just nipped the corner off of the cabinet and ran the cord out from behind the cabinet to the outlet. Voila it worked! Not a professional wire job by any means, but it is something to think about when you consider doing this job yourself.... With the hoses and plumbing connections she spent 60.00 on the project. The man at our town plumbing supply store said that his plumber would do it for about 120. A deal. But, that price would not have included taking cabinets out to make it fit and then putting one back.. If you feel brave and have a good plumbing supply with a willing helpful staff that you can bug with questions all day and you are generally pretty mechanically inclined I say go for it. We got the pink hammer award for doing this today. (Though she did not call me in until the job was partly done I was glad to have the experience.). Do not kid yourself though. This is a full day job for a non plumber.. Re-cap. Where will you get power?. Where will you get new fittings and hoses and are you saavy?. Do you have a disposal that you can easily attach your drain hose to?. Can you T into the hot water source under the sink?. Good luck to you.
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.
