Is It A Broken Pipe Or A Burst Hose?
Whenever we see any type of flooding anywhere within the home, it is assumed that it’s a broken pipe. However, when it comes to a washing machine, a burst water pipe is a more likely cause. Therefore, we always tell our customers to keep checking the hose to avoid a washing machine burst hose. Sometimes, you may notice that the water pressure inside the machine has reduced, that may be caused due to a burst water main. More importantly, a busted hose doesn’t just cause flooding, it can eventually lead to major water damage to your walls and ceiling which can lead to structural damage of your home.
Another thing to note is the amount water being wasted. Usually the pressure within a washing machine hose is quite high. So, water gushing out at a very high pressure will result in way more water just flooding the area and eventually going to waste
Washing Machine Hose Fail – Get The Experts!
A burst hose, as we have mentioned before, are a very common phenomenon. The traditional rubber hose can deteriorate very quickly and loose their flexibility. The loss of flexibility makes them prone to cracks or breaks. Even if it is not a rubber hose it will eventually fail due to daily usage. The constant water pressure can cause the hose to burst. Moreover, the shock from the water pressure itself can sometimes cause the hose to burst.
You cannot reduce the water pressure in your washing machine for that pressure is needed for the machine to function properly.
