This is the underside of my washing macine and I'm wondering what is
the proper attachment for the hose that goes on there? It's close to
1/2" but it is not compression. Is it the type of connection that
takes pipe dope?
Many thanks in advance,
Without being able to see the end of the fitting, it could be a compression
fitting. There are two types that I have seen. They will not interchange.
That is if you have one type, the nut will not match the threads of the
other type. The one that you have probably has a more squared off hole
where the water goes through instead of the more tapered type that is more
Best bet is to remove the one you have and get a new one that matches the
pipe you want to use.
