These Washer Fill Hoses feature one male connection and one female connection. Includes (2) industrial braided flexible hoses with pre-installed connectors and straight ends. Please check your appliance's use and care manual to ensure this is correct for use with your appliance. Fill hoses are used to fill the washer with both hot and cold water. We recommend replacing your washing machine's fill hoses every 5 years to reduce the risk of hose failure and leaks. Replacing this hose kit will require basic hand tools, but no disassembly of the appliance or repair experience. Also make sure you turn off your hot and cold water supplies. Helpful Tip: We also recommend using affresh® Washing Machine Cleaner* (item W10501250) once a month to help reduce odor-causing residue that can build up in your washing machine's drain without proper care. *affresh® brand products are owned and distributed by Whirlpool Corporation.
