The drain hose cracked and sprung a leak

My Repair & Advice
This hose did not just attach to the back of the washer--that would have been too easy. This hose went into the back of the washer, under the tub & attached to the pump at the front of the washer. Both the back & front of the washer had to be removed to access the hose. Luckily the crack was at an external spot where it was easily seen; unluckily my husband was out of town at the time & I had to take the washer apart & put it back together. Actually it was not that hard. Before I took the washer apart I did try to find a video to show me how, but I couldn't find not one video that related to my machine; so I just decided to jump in. It only took 2 days to get the part & then it only took me about 30 mins total, & that included moving the washer back into place.
