Re: WHERE DO THE HOSES GO? Where do you hook up the
The water supply screws onto a standard garden hose quick connect that is female on both ends. Screw the end with the point onto the pressure washer and the part with the slide action onto the end of your garden hose. Then slide the parts together until they click. Sometimes you need to wiggle the slide collar a little.

The pump and its various hoses are easily accessable through the back panel. The boot can collect coins which can block the pump. Squeeze the boot and empty it of all coins. Coins can ruin the impellers on the pump. A new pump costs $100 on line. The drain hose can be plugged by dimes and pennies. Good luck.
It could be an easy fix. Take the water hoses loose on the back of washer and you will see two screens on the water valve where the hoses hook up. These are prone to stop up with junk from the water. Clean with an old tooth brush and hook it back up and try the washer again.
FH is Fill Hose error. Turn off water supply and disconnect hoses from back of machine, clean off strainers on back of machine where hoses connect and make sure you have water coming through hose. ( you can turn the water on slowly one hose first then the other and catch the water in a pot or mop bucket. You should have a steady water flow.) hook hoses back up, turn on water and test.
First check the water supply hoses behind the machine. Where they hook up to machine is the inlet water valve. Unplug the machine. Turn off water supply valves. Remove the hoses from water valve. There are filter screens that can become covered with lime and other debris. Clean with toothbrush and spray bottle to flush the crud away. Also check water flow from supply hoses. Hold hoses over bucket or use tub of washer and turn on the taps. When they get old they can deteriorate from inside. Reattach hoses hand tight then 1/4 trn more with pliers. Do not overtighten. Do not use teflon tape. Do not crossthread. If that doesn't improve water flow your inlet water valve will most likely need replaced. Let me know if you run into difficulty. Good luck.
Make sure hoses are hooked up correctly hot to hot cold to cold. Make sure water valves are on.
if you have flood proof hoses you may have to adjust the pressure or shut of valve and disconnect hoses and reconnect again. while hoses are off make sure there is no debris in the hose screens in the connection inlet.
I understand that when you hook up the hose to the back of your washing machine that the water comes out of the hose. The problem that you are having may be because of washers are missing out of the hose ends. You need to take the hoses off and look and see if you have rubber washers in the side that is leaking. The washers are standard water hose washers you can buy at any hardware store.
1. Place washer in hose
2. Install hose hand tight
3. Turn a quarter turn with wrench
4. Turn water on check for leaks if leaking slowly turn tighter to leak stops
If your shure that a hose is on wrong then there is a place it goesonto that is also wrong . Two wromgs. The only place that a hse could be on wrong is at the exhaust asperater tube that hooks the EGR vavle to the exaust manifold. The heater hoses hook next to each other behind the engine going though the firewall. Follow these hoses back to the motor and see that they don't connect to the pipe on the lower left side of the exaust manifold. If its doing that remove it and see if you can find another hose the same size that will reach the exhaust tube and connect it and vise versa connect the other hose there. The Hoses can be alright though and the engine has a bigger problem a blown head gasket or cracked head. On some models the catalist converter has a hose hooked to it remove it and see itf water comes out, if shouldn't but if it does follow it back to the engine and unhook it there. If water ( Coolant comes out ) ( You may Have to add coolant not water to the cooling system to tell ) then this connection should be connected to a heater hose that you found going thogh the firwall. If you still dont find the problem and the cooling system holds presure and the water coming out the tailpipe is coolant and the engine runs OK ( I dought it). All engines produce a little water when running mainly when run shortly and not warmed up, it will appear black in color and not smell like antifreze. A prankster could have put the garden hose or man hose up the tailpipe to worry you some suspect those that helped point out the water in the first place. The exhaust hoses hook up to the air cleaner housing and pipe and the water hoses hook to the firewall a pipe on the back of the block and a short pipe hooked to the water pump. Repair manuels have pictures of the hoeses in the cooling system chapters.
Check to see if the screens located at the hose connections at the back of the machine are plugged. This is one of the most common problems, when water won't come into the machine. Also, before you hook the hoses back up, run water into a bucket to make sure water comes from the hoses. Email me back if this does not solve the problem.
