You probably stand in front of your washing machine several times a week or more. But how often do you check, or even think about, the hoses that supply your machine with hot and cold water?
Don’t feel bad—most people never think about their washer hoses until they fail. But you don’t want that because a failed hose can make a huge mess, flood and cause expensive damage to your home. In fact, when these systems fail, they are the number one source of home insurance claims. Call Walker Plumbing, Heating & Air today for expert washing machine hose services in St. George, UT.

How to Know If You Should Schedule Professional Hose Inspection
Determining if your hoses are in good shape is pretty straightforward. Look for leaks and also inspect the hoses to see if they have any bulges or cracks. While you’re there, make sure your machine has at least four inches clearance from the wall to prevent hose kinking and damage.
One more thing—be sure you know where your washer shut-off valves are. If a hose bursts, you can minimize the mess and damage by quickly shutting the water off. Also, never leave home while your washing machine is running if you suspect some kind of damage. Our expert technicians can help identify any lurking issues to ensure you don’t spring an unexpected leak that can damage your home.
When to Replace Your Washing Machine Hose
You should replace your hoses immediately if you do find leaks, bulges or cracks. But to be safe, you should also replace them if they are three years old or more. Walker Plumbing generally recommends stainless steel hoses to avoid the potential leaks and deterioration of rubber hoses.
Look for those signs regularly and call a professional for replacement. Improperly fitted hoses can lead to trouble including leaks. Our expert team can assist with washing machine hose installation service to ensure the job is completed accurately.
