I have a dishwasher connection with stripped threads. Does anyone know if it's possible just to replace the red part? I want to avoid replacing the whole hose and that requires removing the dishwasher (integrated) and disassembling it.

Would it be possible to buy a 3/4 male/female connection and screw it together as good as possible with silicone and then connect it back to the tap? Or are any other work arounds?

If you feel like experimenting, stay away from the silicone and get some J-B Weld and a connector similar to the one shown below.

3/4" male female connector

Coat the female threads from your dishwasher connector and the male threads from the new connector with the J-B Weld, screw them together as tight as possible and let cure. Make sure the red nut still swivels.

Personally, I think you should bite the bullet and get a new hose. You're gonna be a nervous wreck every time you run the dishwasher unless you do it right.

  • Could you tell me why not use silicone?

  • @MLEN There's no strength in it to bond the pieces together.
