How do you hook up the VENTRAY countertop dishwasher?

Place the dishwasher on a flat surface close to a water outlet and a drain.

Installation of the inlet hose

1. Connect the inlet hose to the inlet valve.

2. Connect the narrower end of the hose to the convenient connector. Attach the convenient connector to a standard water tap or hose.

Installation of the drain hose

1. Connect the drain hose to the hose connector by fixing the hose clamp.

2. Put the free end of the drain hose into the sink or drainage. Use the suction cup to mount the drain hose.

Can you put the countertop dishwasher under the sink?

Although it is possible to install a dishwasher under the sink, it is not recommended. Placing the dishwasher under a sink can be inconvenient if it’s not installed correctly. You may want to avoid putting the drain hose higher than 15 inches as this will prevent water from draining properly and cause flooding. Plus, it could shorten the dishwasher’s life span due to humidity issues.

Can you permanently install a countertop dishwasher?

It is possible to install a countertop dishwasher permanently. However, you need to make sure that it does not damage your countertops or cabinetry. Here’s how to permanently install a countertop dishwasher: 


First, choose a location where you want the dishwasher installed on your counter and decide how it will be fed water and drained. Then measure the space in your cabinetry you would like to utilize for a dishwasher. You may need to drill a hole into the back wall of the cabinet and run water and drain lines from there to where the dishwasher is installed.

Can a countertop dishwasher go in my cupboard?

Yes, you can put it in the cupboard, but be careful. If there is no waterproof material on the inside of the cupboard, water vapor will be discharged during washing and drying, which may damage the cupboard. We do not recommend putting it in a cupboard because of this reason.


You can install a countertop dishwasher in a cupboard if it meets the following criteria. It must be within a few feet of your sink for water supply and drain. There must be enough space behind the cupboards to accommodate the electrical cord and dishwasher enclosure. Because countertop dishwashers are not as deep as conventional dishwashers, you can place them in most standard-sized cupboards. It is very important that the cupboard can support the weight of a fully-loaded dishwasher. Measure the height of your cupboard to be sure it will accommodate the tabletop dishwasher.

How long does a countertop dishwasher last?

The average lifespan of a dishwasher is approximately 5-10 years, but this varies depending on various factors. You can find dishwashers in all types of homes – from small apartments to large mansions. This makes the lifespan of a dishwasher very subjective, as it depends on how often it is used and what kind of dishes are being washed. But a countertop dishwasher’s lifespan can go up if some essential maintenance is observed after each use.

What is the best dishwasher detergent type?

There are three types of dishwasher detergents: liquid, powder, and tablets. Liquid-based cleaners can clean the most stubborn of stains–even those that are stuck to your dishes after being cooked in with soap residue on them. The powder is great for quick jobs because many particles will become encapsulated within its capsules making stirring difficult. Tablets detergents can quickly dissolve all types and levels of dirt build up in your machine without leaving harmful chemicals behind. Make sure that you select a detergent that is safe for both the environment and your appliance.

Method: Add one tablespoon of dishwasher detergent powder or a small tablet below the cutlery rack. Do not add too much detergent. The excess foam may cause overflow.

Does a countertop dishwasher produce different results than a normal dishwasher?

You don’t have to compromise on performance – the countertop dishwasher is just as efficient as full-size ones when it comes to cleaning. On the other hand, portable dishwasher uses far less water and detergent than their full-size counterparts while being more environmentally friendly. You can save time and money by using a portable dishwasher.
