This water injector hose is the hose found at the top of the tub cover of some clothes washers.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Removed the two Phillips screws from the bottom of the front panel on the washer. I pulled the front panel, from the bottom, outward untill the two spring clips released that attach the front panel to the washer top/lid assembly. Removed the two 3/8" hex head bolts securing the washer top to the side panels, with a nut driver. These are located just inside the side panels in each upper corner. Tilted the washer top / lid assembly back in order to expose the injector hose and top of tub. With 1/4 " nut driver, I loosened and removed the hose clamp around the nozzle body and the injector hose. Installed the new hose on the nozzle body , re-tightened clamp. Inserted the grooved end of the injector hose into hole on top of tub. Ran washer fill to check for leaks. None found, reassembled washer in reverse of disassembly.

This clothes washer is 35 years old and runs like a champ. I did notice a bit of water below the left rear and assumed that a hose was leaking. I let it go for about 6 months, until I could fit it into the "to-do" list. During that time, the hot/cold water intake valve died. I ordered the replacement hot/cold valve a month ago but noticed, upon removal of the valve, that there was significant water drip evidence around the electrical valve solenoids. The water drips caused the valve to die. Drips came from a clogged injector hose air break directly above the valve. Replaced all hoses and water level vacuum air line. Very easy process. The front drops off with two screws. The lid is off with two screws. All hoses easy to R/R. It took about 2 hours to complete. All replacement parts were perfect. My belts are fine so I'm ready for another 30 years of service.
I opened the front of cabinet (2 philips screws at bottom corner with short screwdriver. Then took out 2 cap screws that hold top on with a 3/8" deep socket and ratchet. Once in, I removed the 3 hose clamps that hold the injector and hose in place and removed both pieces. I put the injector together and put it in and clamped it back in. I put the the seal on the tub end of the hose and installed it in the tub, then clamped the other end again. I ordered the seal separate but I wouldn't have had to since one was included with the injector hose. I reused my old hose clamps since they were in good shape. With that I closed up in reverse order. I could have gotten the parts cheaper from another online souce that I found later. Other than that, PartSelect worked great.
Found the 35 year old Water injector hose was dry, brittle, and cracked. Found the new part online at a reasonable price, but was unsure if the seal came with it or not. At $3 it was worth the gamble to buy the seal. Turns out that it did come with it so in another 35 years, I'll be ready ;-) Simple replacement of the hose, one hose clamp and fitting the lip of the new seal into the hole in the top of the tub. Access was gained quickly by removing the front panel (2 phillips screws) then removing 2 sheet metal screws in the front top corners and swinging the hinged top upwards. Piece of cake.
I removed two screws near the bottom of the front panel and removed the panel by pulling the bottom away from the machine. Inside, I removed two cap screws, one under each front corner of the top panel. The top panel is hinged at the rear. I lifted the top panel from the front, rotated it to the rear and leaned it against the wall behind the machine. It was not necessary to disconnect any wiring. The "U" shaped water injector hose connects to the washer water source with a hose clamp and has a grommet-like end that fits in a round hole in the top of the tub. The hose had cracked and was leaking where it connected to the tub. The new injector hose was a direct replacement and was easy to install.
opened washer removed old damaged part and replaced with new part, losen brackets from hose inlet, removed hose, then fit new hose into tub groves can be very frustrating take your time and be patient, once you get it on, fit over inlet, tighten brackets make sure that seal is secure by turning on the water to fill if no leak the job is done run thru complete cycle to test. Thanks
Loosen one hose clamp, slide old hose off fitting, disconnect hose from washer tub. Apply liquid soap to both ends of new hose to make it easy to slip onto the fitting and the tub. Slip hose clamp on one end, fit other end to washer tub, slip hose onto fitting, tighten clamp.
This new injector hose was much better than the original part which was plastic and had cracked with age and flexing the now one is rubber and should last a long time. The part, although it wasn't clear, came with the seal.The only trick to installing it that I came across was with the hose clamp. I could not get the clamp over the hose once in place so the trick was to get the clamp in proper position on the hose and the put the hose over its barb (it will go with some careful "fenagleing"), you can't get the hose clamp to move after you put the hose on.
Observed source of leak by lying on floor behind washing machine and placing hand in likely spots. Found water injector hose was source. Searched web for instructions to open up washing machine: 2 screws at bottom of front panel, then 2 screws at top inside after removing front panel. Easy after that. Lots of rust and rusty screws and rusty tinnerman nuts; had to grind off one of the screws with dremel tool.
First I removed the two screws to pull off the front panel. I then removed the two screws (1/4 inch head) in the upper front corners. Removed clamp from siphon break and carefully worked off hose. After a couple of failed efforts to put hose on dry I put some o-ring type grease on the barb and it went on easier. The clamp was a bit difficult too but take your time and it will go on. Putting injector end in tub required patients. Reassembly was reverse of above. All good for another 25 years!
Assembled the parts, put them into the machine, moved it back into place, started it up and it is running fine. Thanks for the good service, good parts and they arrived on time.
