Washers or washing machines come in different shapes and sizes. While some have more features than others, the items that are inside washers are pretty much the same. However, we often face problems with replacing hoses. Will my new washer come with new hoses?

Do washers come with hoses?
Most washers come with hoses, with only some exceptions. Hoses are integral for connecting your washers with the inlet and drain source, and different companies have different sizes of hoses. If you are in doubt, you should contact the manufacturer or retail before making any purchase.
You can buy washers from many outlets, retail stores, and other places. It would help if you kept in mind that not all the places provide you with the same products.
It is always better to ask about hoses before you buy a washer. And since different companies have different policies, it gets even harder to keep track of them.
We compiled a list asking various companies’ customer services if their washers come with hoses.
LG washers do not come with inlet hoses. You have to buy the hot water and cold-water inlet hoses separately. The LG washer only includes the drainage hoses.
Like LG washers, Samsung washers also include drainage hoses only. However, some models come with both inlet and drainage hoses.
Contact your seller before you purchase any Samsung washer.
Costco washers come with hoses. The washer includes both intake hose and outlet hose. Some retailers suggest that you have to confirm the washers with your order.
Some whirlpool washers come with inlet and drainage hoses, and some only contain drainage hoses. You will have to ask the seller about the model you are buying.
Some GE washers come with inlet hoses for both cold and hot ones. Other GE washers only contain discharge hoses.
Before buying GE washers, make sure of all the components you want beforehand.
Maytag washers come with discharge hoses. While some buyers said that their hoses were a little bit short, others stated their washers did not have any hoses at all.
Speed queen washers:
Speed queen washers come with discharge hoses. Some models of these washers come with cold and hot water fill hoses. Contact the seller about hoses before you make any purchase.
Electrolux washers come with both inlet hose and discharge hose. Other hoses or old hoses from your previous washer may not fit the Electrolux washers. The manufacturers suggest always using their original products.
Bosch washers come with both inlet and outlet hoses. The hose for cold and water depends on the model you are buying.
Do all washers come with drain hoses? Do new washers come with hoses?
Yes, almost all the washers come with drain hoses. But since there are multiple companies competing with each other, you get a different value from each company.
The hoses differ in material types, from company to company. The common and majority of the households in the state have more or less the same washer configuration.
So, the washers do not feel it necessary to include all the hoses with their products. Plus, the washers also incur a loss producing hoses that are eventually wasted.
Most manufacturers and consumers admit to getting drain hoses with their washers. The inlet hoses are often left out from the packages. Some retailers give you the option to add inlet hoses to your cart, so you should keep an eye on that.
New washers are notoriously known for not providing hoses with them. You will get a drainage hose 90% of the time. You will have to ask for or buy the intake hoses separately.
Three reasons why washers come with hoses
As stated before, not all the companies selling washers are the same. Different washers have different features, and those features vary from company to company.
Your washer’s inlet hose position or other key positions may not match with another washer. You will have to use a new set of hoses and crucial parts for this.
More often than not, the washers will make the work easy for you, and they will provide you with the necessary hoses that you need to install the device smoothly.
The hoses come in rubber and stainless-steel variations. While the industry standard is stainless steel, you will see many reinforced rubber hoses that work well.
It becomes hard to match one company’s hose with other companies.
The hoses that come with LG washers may not be a fit with Samsung or Whirlpool washers. The washers also vary in size. The height of the washers will never be the same.
Also, different companies have a variety of product lines. Therefore, it only adds to the frustration of unmatched hoses among all the washers.
Due to cost-cutting, the sizes of hoses may not even match a different washer. Usually, the drain hoses cause complications for their sizes.
Different models have different features in them that require additional installation. So, a costly washer with high-end features may not always fit their properties with other washers.
So, it is logical that washers provide their own hoses to fit every household.
What hoses come with a washing machine?
Even though there are many dissimilarities between washer companies, the hoses that come with them fall into 2-3 categories. They are discussed below.
The fill hoses vary from company to company. Some models have both cold water and hot water intake, while others only have cold water.
If your washer has both properties, you will have both inlet hoses for cold and hot water. If your washer does not provide them, you will have to buy them separately.
The inlet hoses will have a flat washer inside them. The flat circular washer stops water from leaking. The hose ends should fit appropriately with the openings of pipe valves.
The drain hoses are somewhat the same for all washing machines. Most of them come with drain hoses whose functionality does not vary much.
For the drainpipes, there are three ways you can place them: a standpipe, laundry pipe, and regular floor placements.
Follow the instruction manual that comes with the washer. For standpipe and laundry pipe, you need additional instruments to attach the drainpipe in a proper position.
The items should come with your washer. If you do not get those with washers, you will have to buy them separately.
For added protection, some hoses come with anti-flood measures. This is a small instrument mounted inside the hose. The hoses are called anti-flood fill hoses.
These fill hoses are similar to the regular intake hoses. The endings of the hoses will be the same. Only their functions differ. An anti-flood hose will cost more than regular ones.
How to install a washing machine drain pipe? How to connect washer hoses?
Almost all the washers are compatible with the drainpipes you already have. But you will face some exceptions in some cases.
The water from your washer will be drained by one of the three systems-the standpipe drain system, which goes through the wall or floor, the laundry pipe drain system, and the floor drain system.
Make sure your drainpipe is of the right size and proper material. If the pipe comes short, you will need to buy a universal one that fits all drainpipes. Always follow the instructions manual that comes with washers.
Turn off the power and move the washer:
At first, turn off the washer by unplugging the power source. If you cannot reach the source, turn off the supply from the circuit breaker.
Safely move the washer from its position so you can install the drainpipe. The drainpipe should be at the back of the washer.
The drainpipe will be further attached with retainers. If you find any retainer, unscrew them.
Use a towel to clean excess water:
Place a towel underneath the drainpipe opening on your washer, so it does not leak any water. The towel will absorb any water droplets.
Remove the retainer from the old drain hose or insert the retainer in the new drain hose you will install.
If the pipe
Properly place the pipe:
Screw the retainer and hose to the washer opening. Insert the drainpipe into your home’s drain and slide the washer back to place. Do not forget to connect the washer to power.
It doesn’t feel very pleasant if the old hose from your old washer does not fit the new washer you just purchased. So, you should always check for what comes with your washer before you make any purchase. Also, check if the old hoses in your house are compatible with the new washer you want to buy.
