I got a new washing mashine from a friend. As we couldnt get of the tube, i had to buy a new one. Now it seems i am missing an Adapter.

Which Adapter do i need?

(I hope the questions is ok to ask here.)

Country: Germany. Online Shopping is possible. enter image description here

Unscrew the spigot from the tap and then the washing machine pipe will screw straight on to the 3/4 thread.

Edit based on comments: This is a picture of a "normal" standard replacement hose. Do note both ends have plastic fittings which are standard. there are stainless wrapped versions but they are only rated to the same working pressure anyway.

Used these many times and the only time I ever saw one of the plastic nuts break was when it had a gorilla crush it with mole-grips, hand tight is more than ample.

Edit 2: To help those who have not seen the pipe style with the electric valve, here is a picture:

  • now i feel very stupid and thankful at the same time. It seems to work, thanks! – Tlatwork Apr 10 at 10:46
  • OP Tlatwork note that you do not have to tighten the plastic fitting more than is necessary to seal. The rubber ring is the seal. Excessive tightening could introduce stress in the threaded plastic fitting and it could fail suddenly and without advance indication. In the US the ends of such hoses are steel or brass. – Jim Stewart Apr 10 at 12:22
  • This looks like a new hose. In the US failing washing machine supply hoses are a major cause of residential flooding. The ends don't fail; the hoses age and rupture catastrophically. – Jim Stewart Apr 10 at 12:33

    @JimStewart the new devices come with hoses that have electric valves in the end that connects to the tap. can take a pic of one if you want. – Solar Mike Apr 10 at 12:41

    Good call @SolarMike I thought that hose adapter was part of the spigot and was going to suggest a hose clamp. :( – jay613 Apr 10 at 13:32
