Leaking water valve to dishwasher

Hi All,

First post. Though I live in Sweden and the equipment may be a little different, I'm yet to confidently master the language, so I'm posting in my native "tongue" on this forum to avoid confusion. I'm guessing that the principles of the issue I'm facing are the same wherever there is a dishwasher.

Valve is leaking, more like spraying. I've added a few washers, which has reduced the spray, but still, it's leaking. Here's the components I'm working with. They fit really well, I'm not having to force anything.

I use this adaptor to connect the two, a snug fit

So far so good

Until I open the water, and it starts leaking from the valve, between the white plastic and adaptor. The pressure can be adjusted, but there is still significant leaking, though less since I added a washer between the plastic and adaptor. Our previous apartment didn't need the adaptor or washer, and the hose connection worked fine.

So I'm at a loss as to what to do, and I'm getting real tired of looking at stacks of plates. Any help from members would be much appreciated .

Thanks in advance,

Welcome to the forums.........

This should seal with one washer. No need to add anymore..


Possibly the thread patterns are different ot the plastic piece has a crack..

Try replacing that DW hose/line with a new one..

Gott lära av andras fel, eftersom man inte hinner begå alla själv.

Try wrapping 4 -5 turns of Teflon Tape around house fitting before placing adapter on, tighten with pliers while holding house supply with wrench. Also ensure adapter has a washer inside of it.
These adapters are more likely to leak than the dishwasher hose fitting.
