I just bought a Maytag dishwasher from a used appliance store and I have no idea how the plastic end of this hook up hose connects to the water and drain lines. Does this hose have an adapter to hook it up to the water and drain lines? I see it has a quick release type of connector at one end but I don't think it just hooks up to a standard 3/8 water valve.
ANSWER Hello Rocky,
The part you are looking at is the quick connect for a portable dishwasher. It cannot be used under the counter as the drain water shoots out of the bottom of it upon drain. It requires a special adaptor on the kitchen sink faucet to hook it up. If you're hooking this unit up as a built in unit, you will have to remove this hose assembly from the water inlet valve and the drain connection at the pump. You will need to order a drain line 3374077 and a water supply line TJ10SS48DW. You will either have to install a receptacle to plug in the power supply or you can remove the existing power supply line and hard wire the unit.
