Poratable Dishwasher help
I have a Kenmore portable dishwasher which I want to permanently hook up to a water line so I don't have to move it around anymore. There is an extra hot water spigot in my basement where a washing machine would hook up... this is right under where the dishwasher is.
I took the back off the dishwasher to see what would be involved... the black rubber water hose (which hooks up to the faucet) is connected to the dishwasher with the same kind of connection as a washing machine. When I went to Home Depot, they sell 'dishwasher hook ups' which are completely different than the washing machine ones (I assume those are for permanent dishwashers).
My question is, can I use a washing machine hose to supply the water or does the dishwasher connection need to be changed? Also, can I run the drain tube into where my washing machine drains in the basement? Both hoses (the water line and drain hose) would have to be about 12'. The longest washer hose I found is 6', can I couple 2 together?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
