These Washer Fill Hoses feature one male connection and one female connection with built-in O-rings. This is an accessory that can be used across several brands; check to see if your model number is compatible. These hoses can be used to fill the washer with both hot and cold water. Replacing this accessory will require basic hand tools, but no disassembly of the appliances or repair experience. You must unplug the washing machine or shut off the house circuit breaker for the appliance before installing this part. Also make sure you turn off your hot and cold water supplies. Helpful Tip: We recommend replacing your washing machine s inlet hoses every 5 years to reduce the risk of hose failure and leaks. We also recommend using affresh® Washing Machine Cleaner Tablets* (item W10501250) once a month to help reduce odor-causing residue that can build up in your washing machine's drain without proper care. *affresh® brand products are owned and distributed by Whirlpool Corporation.
