a rubber or a flexible washer machine water hose?
I did google the internet to see if there was a standard code to washing machine hose lines prior to posting
Before my new LG washer arrived , I attempted to make the installation easier so I moved furniture and removed the laundry door. I have a horizontal turn off switch for the washing machine water line. I had water spraying from the washing machine as I undid the feed lines. I turned off the main water in order to remove the old unit and install the new washing machine.
Every single project in this new home is a nightmare.
I started a load of laundry and flipped the shut off valve switch hoping the water would stop flowing.Of course it did not . One could wish .
I do have a drain under the washing machine for water overflow.
Do I need to hire a plumber and install a working shut off valve?
ALso rubber hoses were installed as the water feed lines. Should I swap those out and install flexible tubing instead?
The shut off valve is not a turn valve/angle stop but a switch that you slide..... a gate valve
