This Washing Machine Drain Hose Extension measures 4-ft L and drains the water properly during your washer's rinse cycle. This accessory is compatible with most washing machine models and will be needed if your washer is more than the standard distance away from the water drain; check your model number to confirm compatibility. Replacing this part will require basic hand tools, some disassembly of the washing machine 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 before you begin.
