Hi all,

I've used this site quite a few times but never had to post before..

I'm hoping someone can help me with a dishwasher connection issue.

Yesterday I had a dishwasher delivered (Was meant to have it fitted too but he wasn't able to), and the delivery man had a look at the pipes under the sink and showed me online what I needed to get it connected.

So today I bought what he told me but after getting it home it and looking at them again, it doesn't seem as if they'd fit to the water pipe under the sink.

I've attached photos of the attachment and of the pipe, so I'd be really grateful if someone can please point me in the right direction!

Thanks,

From your picture I would have thought you would need a tee with an isolation valve built in.

The dishwasher 3/4” connection will be on the branch

Or replace the existing washing machine connector with one of these to supply both

1. The two brass fittings with banded ends are drain off valves, not for attaching anything.
2. darrenba's suggestion is a good one. Note that you will have to turn the water off first before removing the old blue handled valve and washing machine hose.

There is an isolating valve just above the "T" on the cold feed. 1/4 turn with a screwdriver.

That will only isolate the tap above, turn the water off at the stop tap!! :-)

That's great, thanks everyone!

I'll have to find the stop tap first as I have no idea where it is!

Thanks I'll have a look. It's definitely not under the sink.. when I moved in they told me they have no idea where it is either...which was helpful!

If you have a downstairs loo it could be in there.
