Just bought a stainless Maytag DW, and while reading the install manual, is says to use a 3/8" N.P.T. elbow
to connect to the water inlet valve. It also shows the inlet having a female recepticle in the illustration. When I flipped the DW on its back and looked at the valve, the threads are blue nylon, or some sort of plastic, and they are male connections.
I found a picture of something similar, only mine has just the one hookup, not 2.
I am thinking that I'm supposed to use something other than a brass NPT fitting on those soft nylon threads...any ideas? Do I still need to use pipe tape on this stuff? I've never seen the inlets made from plastic before.
Any advice appreciated!
