Danby Countertop dishwasher

2 posts in this topic

I just bought a Danby countertop dishwasher (model # DDW396W) but don't want it on the counter. I want it under the sink which requires me to hook it up with normal hoses. So I tried to attach new hoses, but it uses hose threads that dont exist. So I started messing with the water inlet valve solenoid and broke it. So i need to replace it but while I am at it I thought I might as well get one with a normal 3/4 compression end to it instead of the danby end that only danby hoses connect to.

Question: can I use any single solenoid water inlet valve? is it possible to substitute one used in a whirlpool or GE regular sized dishwasher? or should substitute it with another countertop dishwasher like a haier?

The broken inlet valve says

110~120V

4W

50/60Hz

Tu 40 degrees C

Tm 85 degrees C

S0046/W

ULNO.MH11723

The broken inlet valve was made of plastic.

Only critical parameters to match are wattage and flow rate (which is determined by the size of teh flow restricing orifice inside the valve). Should work fine.
