    Hi all,

    Following the success of the previous advice, there is one more nemesis in the kitchen which is in the picture below.

    http://media.diynot.com/167000_166777_46467_68990717_thumb.jpg

    The main source of water is the joint between the plastic screw part and the metal part at the top of the pipe (I've tried to mark it with the black line). The water runs down the white pipe onto the base of the kitchen unit, which has now warped. Of course, I've shut the valve now.

    Based on what I could read here, it seems like there should be a washer of some sort inside, but I couldn't find anything there, and when I checked with the dishwasher manufacturer, they said it does not need one.

    Is this a faulty pipe/connector, or should I just go and get a rubber/fiber washer, pop it in, and see what happens?

    Thanks,
    Rajiv
