There is a small leak where the fill line meets the cold water input to our
Whirlpool washer, model number GSQ9300EQ0. The part number on the hose is,
PF149815. It's a 3/4" house. I went to Ace Hardware and Home Depot and have
not been unable to locate something that looks similar to the original
washer. The picture of the original washer is here:
I was told
it's a cone washer but searching online it looks similar to a beveled washer
as well. Any suggestions from the experts out there? (-:
Thanks for your reply.
Might not make any difference. If it's a "garden
hose" kind of thing, I'd try a garden hose washer.
I've had some success with a bit of axle or marine
grease on the hose threads, and tighten gently
with a Channelock pliers.

All the clothes wasthers I know use garden faucet size hoses and
spigots. Go to the garden department and don't worry about the dome in
the center. If there is a choice, get the softer one. You probably
have to buy 5, but you can use the others in your garden.
And if you leave the spigots on all the time, replace your rubber hoses
with woven-stainless-steel covered hoses, before a hose bursts and flood
I have one that leaks at the end near the washing machine, but only when
the machine is in a certain set of positions. But in a half hour it
just leaves a little puddle. Right now, for other reasons, it's pulled
away from the wall a few inches and not leaking. I bought replacments,
but havent' installed them.
Maybe the leak you had would have been a flood were it not for the steel
I know when my unclad rubber hose sprang a leak 15 years ago, it sprayed
up to the celing (soaking and ruining a bunch of DC and suburban phone
books I had on the shelves) and made a mess.
I tried that cone washer from your above link. It leaked right away. Then I
went to the local plumbing supply store, Ferguson, they didn't have the
correct part either. The consensus seems to be that the washer is a custom
part made just for that particular hose. I noticed that the new 3/4" hoses
don't use that type of washer but the smaller hoses, for example a
dishwasher fitting, use that cone washer. I guess they really want you to
buy a new hose.
