Check your washer's hoses!

I just happened to think to check them, and thank the Lord I found this guy before it let loose!

I had a floor drain installed in our laundry room for this exact reason.

Good catch

Interesting. How old are the hoses? There is a suggested replacement interval.

I replace mine every four years after having one burst about 20 years ago on a five year old washer.
Also, throw away the shit hose that comes with the washing machine.

A relative had their basement office flooded because of this type of hose on a dishwasher upstairs. Stainless steel hoses are recommended for this reason.

Looking at the amount of dust in those pics, the OP last checked his hoses....when he installed them?

Those hoses are about 4 years old.  I'm not sure what the replacement interval should be, I'm thinking of getting it on my yearly to do list.
