I am looking to buy this dishwasher. My kitchen is too small for a standard dishwasher and my my faucet doesn't have the proper connection for a portable dishwasher. Could I hook this up the water line under the sink and use it in the style of a permanent dishwasher? I have all of the other necessities to hook it up otherwise

Answer: 
No. Permanent dishwashers tie into the plumbing in ways this won't. And if you have a sprayer it'll likely be a disaster from the pressure dishwashers can put into supply lines. You get a fitting with a portable dishwasher that screws onto the kitchen faucet. The water hookup pops on and off of it. Unless you have a very fancy European faucet, said fitting should work. And Home Depot has more of them if Read More

If you have an under counter plug and can mess with the plumbing - meaning you own the property - just get a regular built in. If it's a rental tying a dishwasher into plumbing will cause a world of trouble. Read Less

FYI my dishwasher was 20 years old and just went up so I am looking to purchase this one and do the same conversion on my new one. My plumber only charged me $50 but Im sure costs will vary. Hope this helps! Read Less

Answer: 
It's not really designed that way, the water inlet and drain outlet are connected into one adapter that attaches to your faucet. It has a threaded quick adapter that attaches on the inside or outside of the faucet outlet, which then couples to the adapter. Built into the adapter is a pressure valve and a drain outlet, so it drains directly into your sink. The hoses can be removed from the adapter but I'm Read More

How far from the sink can I put it?

I would like to put the dishwasher about 10 feet away from the sink, where there is some space for it. Does the connecting hose that comes with the dishwasher allow for this? If not, does the hose have a standard connector so I can get an extension to it?

Answer: 
I don't know about getting a connector..not sure how that would work. But the DW needs to be right in front of the sink for it to be hooked up. I roll it over and then move it back to the space. It just glides.

Answer: 
No. Or, not that I know of. It wouldn't be practical. The hoses terminate in a fitting that wouldn't adapt to putting an extension on. The reason it's on casters is so you can push it back and forth. People have been doing that for decades - it's not a perfect solution, but It beats not having a dishwasher. When I was growing up everyone had portables, and were thankful for them too.

People have been doing that for decades - it's not a perfect solution, but It beats not having a dishwasher. When I was growing up everyone had portables, and were thankful for them too. Have you ever loaded one of these? Cause you'd know it needs to be next to the sink to get the dishes in. Walking back and forth across the kitchen with wet dirty dishes is not workable! And you'll probably want to scrape and rinse them with this little unit. Just buy it, put it in it's spot, and worry about a caster up grade if needed. It moves with no effort and attaches to the faucet when you're ready to run it. Did you really want to live with hoses snaking around the kitchen? Cause no, you can't tie it into the plumbing. That makes a big mess of back pressure and cold water. And leaking... Read Less

What faucet(s) are recommended to use with this dishwasher?

This question is from 18 in. Front Control Portable Dishwasher in Stainless Steel with 8 Place Settings Capacity
June 12, 2015
My brand new Moen with side sprayer leaks from the side sprayer whenever I use this dishwasher. Moen sent me a new side sprayer and the same thing happened again. I need to find a faucet which will not leak under my sink when the DW is used. Can someone please help me? The dishwashing company was not able to offer any guidelines other than to have a plumber install a separate line for the sprayer, but I have wasted enough money on plumbers trying to resolve this. Can I not have a faucet with sprayer?... Or has anyone had 0 leaks using a certain one? I am highly allergic to mold so don't want to do anything risky.

Also, does anyone have any advice about what I can do when my dishes come out of the wash stinky?

Thank you.

Answer: 
It says right on the description somewhere not to use with a sprayer attachment due to the pressure it causes leaks. I read that right before I purchased a new faucet with a sprayer :/..so no..you cannot use with a sprayer on your sink.
Sometimes the dishes come out stinky because you have to remove the filter and scrub it with a sponge. I do this once a week now.
Hope this helps.

Answer: 
I know that regular dishwashers can't be connected to the sink plumbing when there's a sprayer. The water pressure strains all those (relatively) delicate bits. You need to find an experienced appliance person or plumber (or Home Depot sales person) and ask them what to do about it; I think the idea is that if you have a dishwasher, you don't need a sprayer. That, or it's just the laws of physics. Read More

Answer: 
Talk to a plumber. Dishwashers can create pressure building up back down the water line. Make sure this won't cause trouble! You'll need a mixing faucet with one spout. The adapter for the kitchen sink faucet will need to be cut off - so if this doesn't work out you'll need a whole new set of hoses with an adapter.

Customer Reviews

18 in. Front Control Portable Dishwasher in Stainless Steel with 8 Place Settings Capacity is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 69.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from solid purchase, worth the money Came completely assembled and I used it 10 minutes after it arrived. Like the other reviews said the manual is a joke and gives very limited information but if you have ever used a dishwasher it should be simple. Other complaints I have read seem to be extremely picky. I think the botttom rack slides back it because the door is at a slight angle when opened completely. This stops water from leaking all over yoir floor. I have had no problems at all with this unit. It is easy to use, quiet, and good quality which was unexpected since I had never heard of this brand. I would absolutely buy this product again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be more satisfied! I waited to write my review until I had my SPT for more than six months. It has performed beautifully. I was hesitant to buy a brand that I was not familiar with, but I can say it has been a wonderful purchase. Alas, there's not a lot of choice in portable dishwashers, and they are much more expensive than the built in versions. I moved into a rental apartment and was so impressed with the architecture that I failed to notice there was no dishwasher. I couldn't bear spending the money to buy one, but after noticing how greasy and water spotted my dishes were with hand washing I decided to bite the bullet and buy one. I wish I had done it sooner. This machine has taken quite a burden off of me. Yes, it is difficult to fit pots and pans in it with a load of plates and drinking glasses, etc. but you can run a second load just as easily. The most important thing is the dishes sparkle when they come out and the machine is super quiet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased!! I was a little hesitant to buy this brand at first because I had never heard of it. BUT... the reviews on here sold me, so I'm reviewing it as well. All of my kitchen appliances are stainless steel, so I was insistent on my mobile dishwasher matching. Unfortunately (and oddly enough), no other brand makes a portable dishwasher in stainless steel! This seemed my only option. But I am not the least bit disappointed that I bought an "off-brand". You wouldn't know it. It performs beautifully and is whisper quiet. It is super easy to hook up and wheel around. I couldn't be happier to not be handwashing dishes anymore! The only thing I will say is I have to agree with many others on here... the manual is a joke. It spends a whole page showing you how to load silverware and dishes but offers NO help on how to hook it up to your faucet! Overall though a simple process that was easy to figure out. *Note: you do not need a separate adapter. The quick hookup it comes with appears to be a male part, and so was my faucet, so I had gone to Home Depot to buy an adapter. Turns out removing one of the washers within the hookup turns it into a female piece (would've realized this if the manual had said so!) Hopefully I saved someone else from an unnecessary trip for an adapter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dishwasher especially for the price Space is at a premium in my home, so we went for this dishwasher as opposed to a built in. I've found it easy to use and easy to move. It can easily hold a day's worth of dishes for me and my husband, and gets the dishes very nice and clean. The program times seem long, but I have nothing to really compare it to. Unbeatable for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great machine for the price! I love everything about this machine - size, energy use, price, portability and the only thing that bothers me is that the bottom rack has a tendency to slide back into the machine when I'm loading it - we've made sure it's level all around and it slides back in. I think it has to do with the door not opening totally flat. Regardless - a great machine. Not hand washing all the dishes throughout the day is a dream come true!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for small kitchens We purchased this dishwasher to replace an older full size portable during a kitchen renovation. My other half was tired of the big beast sitting on the middle of the kitchen while I was happy using it as an island! I must say I love how the size of this allows the space to open tremendously. It fits perfectly in the space we had. It's difficult to compare the quality of older appliances. They really don't make them like they used to. The lower basket is pretty wobbly, but functional. I love the upper rack stemware feature and the stainless interior and the functional, easy to clean top. The hose system is also disappointing quality wise, but functional. The dishes come out clean and mostly dry (we let sit overnight and never used heated dry on our old machine). The thing that impresses me the most is how VERY QUIET this is. No more closing off the kitchen when watching a movie. We are very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it!! this little portable dish washer appears to be well made and sure does a good job! I am so very happy with it and for its price you won't go wrong. The only issue I had is that the adapter to the sink is not universal and I had to go back to Home Depot to get one that would connect to my faucet. It is easy to connect and disconnect and my dishes come out clean. Very happy with this purchase
Date published: 2014-01-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT! I've never owned a dishwasher before, and now that I'm a little older I just didn't want to do dishes so much anymore, especially after entertaining. I found this little number at HomeDepot and thankfully all the positive reviews pushed me into making the purchase. I've never heard of this brand, but it was the only one that was small enough for my (apartment) kitchen, the only one in stainless steal, and with many positive user reviews. I've only had it for a few months, and have probably used it 6 or more times. It is PERFECT!! I saw some complaints regarding the manual, but seriously, it's so simple to use. I don't think I even referenced the manual much. It's as easy as: 1. Plug it in, 2. Attach hose to sink, 3. Add detergent, 4. Choose your cycle, 5. Push start. Super simple!! You can even "pause" it and add additional items. I only wish the hose was long enough to reach my sink from where it sits, but it's a few feet too short. No big deal though, it really does roll around with the easiest of ease. It holds alot of dishes, and it runs very quietly, I do not hear it over my fan or AC which is also located in the kitchen. I really JUST LOVE IT SO MUCH!!!!!!
