I installed a DW the other day, and used teflon tape for the connection of the brass elbow that joins the 3/8" supply line (flex hose) to the unit itself.
The issue is, I have a drip between the brass elbow and the female brass connection on the DW.
The DW leaks 2 drops of water every cycle. I need to pull the entire unit out to get the fitting removed and reinstalled. Should I use pipe dope on the brass to brass join? Or is teflon tape fine (maybe it bunched up when I installed the fitting).
Also, if teflon tape is okay on its own, how many wraps are appropriate?
Here is a pic to help clarify.
