I have no idea what this is called, so I apologize for the vague title. If someone knows what it is, feel free to edit it.
When I turned on my dishwasher (just moved in), water started spewing from this thing. When I removed the cap, I found that it was really dirty and moldy. I'm guessing the previous owners never used the dish washer. I have two questions:
- How do I keep water from getting into the silver cap and what is this thing for? There's an opening that allows water to get in when, for instance, I do the dishes.
- Is there a valve that needs to be turned off to keep water from spewing out when I use the dishwasher?
