Is there a puddle of water on your kitchen floor? If your washing machine is leaking, the culprit could be a split Hose. Your washing machine is designed with hoses that connect various components to the tub. A defect in the Hose would create a leak during the cycle. Washing machine hoses usually fail where the metal coupling crimps the hose end. Over time, flowing water sharpens the metal edges, which can cut the inside of the hose, leading to rupture. Leaks can lead to water & scale damage to your appliance and its surroundings, making this replacement Hose ideal in maintaining an efficient washing machine. Please check model fit list to ensure this part is correct for your model.
