I bought a replacement coupler and hose assembly for a portable dishwasher. ORDER SUMMARY Order Date: 2/14/2013 Order Number: 3155802 AP4114683 (99001868) Coupler & hose assembly 1 $52.28 This hose was used because it was cross referenced as a substitute/replacement for the hose that was on the dishwasher I was working on: Part Number 99001868 (AP4114683) replaces 99001306, 99001868. The hose is now installed, but this coupler won't lock onto the part which is attached to the kitchen sink faucet, but the old hose does just fine. Clearly this hose is not compatible with that part. Q1: What is the part number for the piece which attaches to the kitchen sink faucet (where the aerator normally goes) that I now need to make this work? Q2: Might it make sense to just pair up that part with this hose and coupler set automatically so that people don't end up with this delay and with having to place two orders and pay two shipping fees? Thank you, Dan
Answer Dan, The corresponding faucet adapter part number is W10254672 . If you haven't yet, remove the present adapter from the faucet, and insert it into the new hose coupler to see if it seats and locks. Your issue may be the clearance at the faucet,not the adapter or coupler. You may want to purchase an areator adapter at the local home improvement center. At AppliancePartsPeos.com, we distribute the parts as we recieve them from the manufacturer, Your idea would be a good one, but we're sure the manufacturer has a reason for not making certain components a "packaged deal".
The faucet connector blows off, the "hard" o-ring came off. Replaced the o-ring with a black "rubber" o-ring . The problem is still occurring. What to do next?
Answer Randy, Check and make sure the internal retainer ring "locks" into position, when the coupler ring is in the up position, a dab of "vaseline" may be needed to loosen the retainer ring, so it locks and unlocks properly when attached to the areator/adapter. Also check and make sure the adapter/areator W10254672 is not distressed, and properly installed.
