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. ...

Yes there will be a little stagnant water but there always is the pump is in the bottom of the machine and it can only push water out as long as there is water to push when the pump stops the pipe is still full any extra pipe on the ground will add to that amount but a couple of inches won’t be more than a cup or 2 added to what is there no washer that I ...

I found the problem. Indeed it was change in the washer. I removed the lower trim panel, drained the water out (there is a small hose with a cap), then removed the cover for the pump. Out fell a penny. That's right, a single penny made all that noise. The edges of the penny were silver from rolling around in the pump area. What uncovered this process for me ...

From a Google search this website says, about 2.9 cu.ft. As Ed Beal suggested, the washer is listed as being 3.1 cu.ft. but usable size is 2.9. Added in case link is not read or works.

I would not extend the drain hose that is supplied with the machine. However, what I have done in the past is to put a stand pipe closer to the machine with a U trap to prevent the smells coming back up. I did that with 2" pipe which solved the problem and never caused any back up for the machine. The 60" is usually taken as horizontal distance but ...

TL;DR Test with an extension cord to another GFCI It is probably the machine. Unlike the situations with refrigerators, where water is not involved (except the ice maker) and where food spoilage is a big concern, washing machines have no real "excuse" not to be on GFCI. Plus GFCI is mandated for the the laundry room under current code, so the ...

GFCI outlets don't provide over-current protection, only ground fault protection. If you were fairly adept, you could make up a short extension cord with the wires separated (or carefully butcher one you have into 3 separate wires. And if you have an multi meter with an "amp clamp" you could put the amp clamp around the ground wire and plug it into ...

My question was whether I needed to purchase a new stacking kit when replacing a washer that was already stacked with a dryer. I asked this question at Best Buy and Sears. Both said no need to replace the staking kit. When the delivery came out, they were unable to deliver the washer as the new stacking kit was necessary. We're now without a washer for 4 ...

Put head inside drum, rotate slowly. (The drum, not your head...) I once had to completely strip a machine, as a bra wire had escaped through a hole, and was catching outside the drum. Next port of call would be the pump itself, at the bottom of the machine. There could be something caught inside that, that is making the noise. Plenty of towels will soak up ...
