Washing Machine Supply Line Failure in Evergreen?
While doing laundry one day, I heard a funny whooshing noise coming from my laundry room. Then I saw the water coming down the hallway. Oh no! I had a supply line failure. SERVPRO® of Golden/Wheat Ridge/Evergreen has been helping Evergreen residents with water damage emergencies for years. Here are some tips for maintaining your washing machine supply lines from the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety:
- Look for signs the supply hose may be ready to fail—blisters in the hose, worn tubing, stress cracks, or a loose connection
- Replace the supply hose with a reinforced steel braided hose if it shows any sign of wear
- Tighten the connection if it feels loose. The most common site of failure is near the connection where the hose bends.
- Replace supply hoses every five years, even if there is no obvious deterioration or wear. Some signs of deterioration may occur from the inside out and may not be visible until it is too late. When replacing washing machine supply hoses, always choose a reinforced steel braided hose over the traditional un-reinforced rubber hose. These hoses will last longer and are far less likely to result in a catastrophic water loss.
