Is Your Washing Machine a Water Leak Waiting to Happen?

As appliances age – particularly your dishwasher and washing machine – their plumbing connection hoses can deteriorate and break, possibly resulting in water being released into your home.  Regularly inspect your appliances for weaknesses resulting from long-term use, and replace any hoses that are between 3 to 5 years old, depending on their condition.  Pay special attention to stress points, such as where the hose connects to the water supply.  These are vulnerable spots where breakages can occur.
