Check For A Bent Washing Machine Hose
The washer hoses connect from the water supply valve to another inlet valve directly behind your washer. The hose can bend from moving or repairing your washer. If you have a bent washing machine hose, your system may take longer to fill up with water, or may not fill at all.
How To Check For A Bent Washing Machine Hose
While the washing machine is off, shift the washer away from the wall until you can reach the hoses behind it. In most cases, you should be able to wiggle the machine out slowly to avoid putting stress your back.
CAUTION: Be careful not to overstrain yourself or let the washer tip.
Take a look at the hoses behind the washer. Start at where they connect to the washing machine and follow them until they connect to the wall. Ensure both hoses are free of any bends or kinks.
If your washing machine hose doesn’t seem to be the issue, consider other reasons why your washer isn’t working.
What To Do If You Have A Bent Washing Machine Hose
If you’re dealing with a bent washing machine hose, you’ll want to replace it as soon as possible. Bent washer hoses not only prevent your washing machine from filling with water, but they can also cause leaks. The sooner you replace your washer hose, the sooner you’ll preserve water and save money!
