Major Appliances/washing machine hose


QUESTION: I am getting a new washer and dryer and the are slightly deeper than my old ones.  I want to get them a little closer to the wall and thus would like to put a 90 degree elbow of some sort on the fittings on the washer and on the outlet from the wall.  What am I looking for?  I can't use just a regular 3/4 brass or plastic street elbow, can I?  Doesn't it have to have the rubber to seal it like a garden hose?   Thanks for any help you can give me.

ANSWER: How long do you need these washer fill hoses with the 90 degree elbow on one side?  Price depends on length...

QUESTION: maybe 4-5 feet max.

I tried finding a good part number for the hose I have in mind.  The older Maytag washers had a 90 degree elbow built in on one end of the fill hose and a straight one on the other.  We are sold out of that style and now when I put the part number in various databases, it crosses to the straight on both ends.  If you have a local appliance store go in there and see if they have any 90 degree brass elbows on one end of the fill hose.  I wish I could have been more helpful  Part number is 202860.

Good Luck, Eric
