How essential is the back flow preventer in the Amana washer? What are the likely consequences of replacing this part (AP4044572) with a section of pvc pipe?
ANSWER Hello R.J.,
There should be no problem with this. The machine will not know the difference. The part has to be installed from the manufacturer to meet minimum requirements set by the EPA.
