Why does ASKO equip their washer with a rigid PEX supply hose? This makes things more difficult when you need to service the unit; pull it in and out from the wall.
No sure exactly , but PEX is less prone to rot and bursting than the rubber hoses supplied by everyone else.
Because, petuniatwelve, PEX is a superior product that will not rupture or degrade like a rubber hose. You would expect a PEX hose with a high end product like Asko. It's a good thing.
