I noticed a leak coming from the black hose and dripping down it and pooling underneath our dishwasher. I had done some maintenance and removed the cap on the interior of the washer to this part. Only after this did it start leaking. So my fault. Upon disassembly, I found that I had not placed the cap back on properly and it was mis-seated. I pulled the Air/Water Inlet valve off to inspect it and the rubber O-Ring fell right into my hands. Before I put this back together, should this O-Ring be re-inserted without any Silicon or should I put some in there?
You will want to install the o ring without any type of silicone or sealant.
