This Washing Machine Siphon Break Assembly is designed for use with rubber and plastic drain hose applications. This universal design is compatible with washer models; check to see if your model number is compatible. The washer water siphon break provides an air gap in the drain to prevent the siphoning of dirty water back into the tub. Replacing this accessory will require basic hand tools, some disassembly of the washer and novice repair experience. You must unplug the washing machine or shut off the house circuit breaker for the appliance before installing this part. Also make sure you turn off your hot and cold water supplies.
