Water Supply Fitting question

Hi
Years ago I used a Watts Universal Dishwasher Installation Kit... I believe this is the one.
3/8 in. x 3/8 in. x 60 in. Stainless Steel Universal Dishwasher Supply Line-D60U at The Home Depot

Do you know what size and type of fitting connects the the braided supply to the brasscraft shut off valve under the sink?

I believe two different stainless ones came in the kit but only one worked in my application.

Most use a 3/8 x 3/8.The washer might come with the small brass 3/8 fitting attached or you use the elbow to reduce it down to 3/8.

In that photo its the two stainless ones I was refering to. The washer goes with one of those but Im not sure why? The two brass fitting are for connections at the dishwasher.

You should have a valve at the water supply side. Usually its a 3/8 fitting. Just screw the end of the hose into it. You don't need the other fittings. Or use whatever works.

If one of those fittings fit your valve on the supply side use it and you should use the washer with it. If nothing fits, then you need to either change out the valve or get other fittings that will bring it to the 3/8 to fitt the hose.

Iím just a newbie (but Iíve done a few) but I think Normís statement above is correct. For example, I think you would screw the hose onto the connection at the left side in the picture at this link:
