We need to move w/d to back wall (a quarter turn) of Laundry room, were told when installed last year that we would need a special hose, that standard would not work for this model. Existing hose is about 1 ft too short to move.
Where can I get this "special" hose?

Re: special water hose needed?
I dont know of of a"special hose". are we talking about water inlet (hot and cold) hoses??drain hose??? or a vent hose for dryer???
1. stainless steel non-bursting fill hoses are available in up to 6' lentgh's
2. drain hose can be extended if need be, i would make it as short of an extension as needed, and use a hose of atleast the existing diameter and make sure that it wont, bent or pinch off after putting into drain pipe
3. dryer venting should be a solid aluminum 4" pipe as shosrt as possible with least amount of elbows needed.
all available at a quaitly home improvemnet store/ hardware store

Unhook the water hoses at the wall and check to make sure the screens are free of debris. The pump is easy to access via the back panel--just two screws. There are blogs available that tell you how to check and replace the pump if necessary. Read all of them before you start. It is often the culprit. Good luck.
The drain leaving the laundry room going to the main needs to be cleaned. The first thing you can try is what is called a product called Drain King . This is connected to a garden hose and inserted into a drain where the p-trap is removed from the wall When the garden hose is turned on full blast it will try pushing out the clog You should hear it pulsate first slowly then more quickly as the clog is washed away.he water flowing with Finally you should hear water flowing freely. it helps to use warm water if possible. If that won't work the drain will need to be snaked , Turn off the hose and remove the Drain King by loosening the hose connection Then follow that pipe downhill toward the main drain, and look for a clean-out plug. You can loosen the plug SLOWLY, have a bucket, mop, and rags ready and wear old clothes. Place the bucket under the clean-out plug if possible while slowly removing it Water will come out unless the clog is between the laundry sink and the clean-out. If water comes out when the clean-out plug is removed place your snake drain cleaning device into the clean-out and run until the clog is cleared. then run water through it for a while to wash away any residual residue. Put everything back together and test for leaks.
Thanks for using FixYa. Error NF means No Fill. The washer has tried to fill but was unsuccessful. NF indicates No Flow. There is something that is interrupting the inbound flow of water to the washer, either hot or cold. Sometimes this happens when water service in the area is interrupted, creating an air pocket that causing the water valve not to sense water.
Try running the diagnostic test by—
Press the delicates and heavy soil keys together for 3 seconds.
You are in the service mode.
Now, press wrinkle free key, cold water should start entering.
Then, press the cotton sturdy and hot water should flow.
To exit the test mode, either unplug the machine or press the delicate and heavy soil again for 3 seconds.
Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
If your washer won't drain, check these: It spins, but doesn't pumpIf
your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is
probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of
clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds
the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into
the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump
itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump
and pull the item out.To
remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access
panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump
to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to
grab and remove the clothing through the port. Sometimes
you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove
the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This
isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be
happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.If
the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even
if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken.
If so, you need to replace the pump.
It doesn't spin or pumpIf
your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running,
your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to
replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer
and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if
it's frozen or stiff--replace it.
It pumps, but the water returnsIf
the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine
after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a
laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual
remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is
something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.
perhaps the water inlet valve is shut off. Follow the plumbing, turn it back on. It maybe located in the bottom 6" of the dishwasher, or close to it in an adjacent cabinet or wall. Mine is in the basement laundry room
warter seeping through valve remove power cord. them cut off water at wall remove 3 t20 screws from back of top panel slide panel toward rear to remove. remove hoses and electrical connections from valve remove 1 t15 srcew from back of rear panel to remove valve replace with part # 8181694 for about $50
depending on how far you need to extend the hose, you have to be careful not to extend it too far, or else it may not pump out properly or may even siphon the water out of you machine. I would suggest calling or going to your local appliance parts distibutor and asking them if there is a special hose for extending the drain hose. Make sure you take your model and serial number with you or have it handy if you call. You may be able to use a normal type of hose , but they ussually kink or collasps on the inside . Either way a quick check with the parts distibutor might save you alot of trouble.
