Can't connect hose from mains to washing machine


Recommended Posts

I'm fitting a new washing machine: the connector hose on the machine is a standard one, but the hose from the mains (it's from under the kitchen sink) has no thread on it (see pics). The John lewis delivery guys said it was an old-fashioned one and they couldn't install it. Is there a simple way to put a connector on the mains hose? Grateful for any advice!

That looks like where a drain hose attaches not fill hose?

In the 60s and 70s the fill hoses were thick and rubber but this one looks even thicker. Where does the other end go?

Drain hoses commonly have a rubber bit in the end that can push into a connector like that.

It looks way too fat to be a fill hose to me and I remember when the thick inlet hoses were common. If it’s the drain hose the end of the drain hose on the washer may hopefully push on tightly. Preferably with a tight cable tie or two to help hold it on. 

If by any chance it was a fill hose I’d get a plumber in to fit proper modern taps but I’d be very surprised if it is.
