I'm not a professional "tinkerer" but I would be if it paid enough to make a living so when our clothes washer "took a leak" on the floor I had to tinker with it to see if I could fix it.
I concluded that the problem was that this clothes washer was made on a Friday (when the quality inspector was dreaming about fishing, hunting, the bar life, or what ever).
The discharge hose should have been run over the metal frame, through the white clamp, instead of under it where it would sit on the floor. 5 years of the vibration of the machines operation caused the hose to wear as it sat on the cement floor instead of above it where the clamp intended the hose to sit.
You can see where the hose wore above as it sat on the cement floor until it wore through. I searched the Internet for a new hose and although they were bountiful they were expensive so I purchased a tube of high quality glue (JB Weld), rerouted the hose through the clamp, and we've been good for a couple of months now.
