How does a portable dishwasher work?

2 posts in this topic

Hi, Sensei.  I know that I don't have the model number for this machine, but I don't know where to find it.  I have purchased a house, and it came with a portable dishwasher.  I cant figure out how this machine is supposed to get clean water into it and dirty water out.  There is a hole in the back with a retractible plug, but no water hoses or spiggotty things or taps or drain things.  I didn't try to turn it on as I worry that running a dishwasher without water will damage it.  Can you help me?

You should have a retractable hose in the back of the dishwasher. The hose should have an adapter that attaches to your kitchen sink tap. After you connect it to the sink tap, you turn on the water at the tap and then turn on the dishwasher.
