I had trouble initially because I could see that the inside of the machine was wet but could not get it to leak while I was watching. Finally while the machine was filling I put my hand over the fill opening in the tub and then I got plenty of water coming from the air gap in the injector hose. When I dismantled the injector hose and air gap, I could see that the rubber injector vale was bad. I orgered both a rubber injector and injector hose with air gap. I did this because I couldn't determine if the assembly came with the injector valve. It did so I returned the injector valve.
A word of caution. When I started filling the machine water gushed out the air gap. With a little experimenting with the air gap and injector valve, I determined the rubber injector valve was in backward. After reversing the vale, everything worked fine. This was a sealed package so I would have to say this came from the manufacturer wrong.
