Washing machine washers with screens

kcredOctober 10, 2013

Hi all,
You know what I mean, the washing machine water inlet hose washers with the little filter screens in them.
Ant ideas if they do anything? Are plain washers for the connections good enough? I'm on city water.
Are the screens a help or hindrance to my washer?
Thanks for any opinions!

they are designed to prevent large particles from entering the washer and causing issues such as stuck valves or rust marks on clothing. leave the filter in place.

I have seen them and would personally leave them alone.
