A horror story averted

In reply to More On Washing Machine Hoses ... by Jay J on December 24th, 1998 10:16 AM [Go to top of thread]

Last summer, my next door neighbor's kids came over to tell me their mom wanted me right away: when I went to the utility room door, she's standing in ankle- deep water and on the cell phone screaming to her husband (who was at work 20 miles away), and a fountain of water was spraying up from the back of the clothes washer. I knew what I was looking at, and reached down behind and pinched the hose off and shut the valve. Hose failure can and does happen, and a quick- closing shutoff valve, in a VERY VISIBLE LOCATION is a lifesaver.
