I just bought a new GE washer. The drain hose connects to a rubber hose which exists the house. There is no catch basin set up. The new GE drian hose has 3 channels running the length of the connecting end and I can not make a tight seal with the exit drain hose. any suggestions?
Answer Hello Spencer. If the plumbing has been modified where you are installing the unit, you will need to find some fittings to install the drain hose WH41X10096. You may be able to find a fitting that will go inside the drain hose and the pipe in the house and use clamps to secure it. Hope this helps.
When my washer drains, I have a pvc stack pipe it goes into. I noticed at the end of the pumping or draining cycle it starts to clear out the last bit of water which seems to come out of the stack connector which has 2 small openings in it. Do they make a connector for the stack that would have no openings or do they need them for air? Need help any suggestions.
Answer Hi Bill. If your drain standpipe is shaped like a Y, Is there a "Anti-siphon break" capped on one end? It has an internal diaphragm that opens only as the washer drain is active. Closes while not draining as not to allow the room to stink of drain dirty water. Your standpipe has to be as high as the top of your washer. You can use drain-o to unclog and help. Highly recommend the Y-pipe / anti-siphon assy. as plumbing upgrade. All washers today are using a high speed pump and final spin mode. Drain hose Part # WH16X513. Thank You.
My washer has a small leak where the drain hose connects onto the drain hose. If I buy a new drain hose will this solve the problem? Can I use my existing hose clip with the new hose?
Answer Hello Jim, you might be able to fix the leak if the leak is from the drain hose. You should be able to reuse the same clips from the old hose to the new one. If replacing the hose does not fix the leak issue, you might have to replace the drain pump WH23X10030. Thanks!
