Replacing a washing machine drain hose is easier than it sounds. The drain hose on your washing machine may become worn or cracked after several years of use. The rubber may begin to wear down, since the dirty water is forced through the hose under high pressure. Replacing the hose only takes a few minutes using a screwdriver and a pair of pliers. Buy a new hose, install it yourself and save up to $100 by not having a repairman come to your house.
8 Always take the model and serial numbers with you to the parts store when purchasing replacement parts. Unfortunately, there is virtually no such thing as a universal replacement part in the home appliance industry. Disconnect the washing machine from the power before attempting any repairs. Water and electricity don't mix. Be sure to dry your hands thoroughly before plugging the washer back in.
Lift the old drain hose straight out of the drain pipe and lower it into a bucket to allow any residual water to empty out of the hose without making a mess.
Slip the clamp over the straight end of the new hose and slide it up the hose about 1 inch.
Slide the washing machine back into position in your laundry room, insert the drain hose into the drain pipe and reconnect the power, making sure your hands are dry.
