First I tried to connect the hose that came with the washer, but it didn't seem to want to fit on the faucet. After several attempts I was finally able to screw it on but when i turned on the water it sprayed out everywhere.
Eventually I decided to disconnect the hose that was connecting my old washing machine (Maytag) and use that since I _knew_ it worked and didn't leak. This time the hose connected to the faucet with no problem and to the Washing machine with a little difficulty, but this time when I turned on the water, it was leaking at the back of the washing machine.
I'm wondering if this is a result of the Asko tube being on the metric system and my faucet being in inches? I checked several websites and couldn't find anything specs on the hose. I did find in the manual that the hose is a "63" pex hose."
