This Washing Machine Drain Hose measures 8' L and drains the water properly during your washer's rinse cycle. This universal drain hose is compatible with several washing machine brands and will be needed if more than the standard distance exists between the washer and the drain; check your model number to confirm compatibility. Helpful Tip: This kit also includes a 1-1/2" D clamp, but the hose itself is -1/4" diameter. Therefore you may also need to order a 1-1/4" clamp separately to use this part. Installing this accessory will require basic hand tools 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.
