This incident is unfortunate, but it is not the end of the world. When your washing machine hose bursts, the next steps include replacement and a new game plan.

Top Tips After The Hose Bursts

Should it burst unexpectedly, we first suggest that you immediately replace it. If it is rubber, make sure you replace it with a stainless steel hose. This type of material is significantly stronger than rubber and can withstand the water shut offs in a much more aggressive fashion that rubber. This is your best bet moving forward.
Next, ensure there is no water damage to the foundation of your home. Unfortunately, this is a reality for some. Make sure to assess immediately, and if needed, call in a clean up crew. Finally, we suggest you start marking your calendar. Essentially, what we mean by that is, we want you to have consistent checks set up. This is the time when you eyeball the current hose and assess its condition. If it looks weakened because of time or use, it might be time to replace, even if it hasn’t burst. This is the kind of scenario where you’re better safe than sorry.
