Yes, you can but if you are making it longer to go to a higher drain you may incur problems with water in tube. Some models have an options for high output pumps but yours may not. Just be sure you use proper hose clamps to secure the new connection properly.

Why not use a piece of scrap
hose cut it a little longer than
you want then experiment its
easier to shorten than lengthen.
That way you start out with a
clean hose,and you can kill to
birds with one stone

My bettery was law fast everytime why?

Rechargeable batteries do not last forever.

They only accept about 1,000 charge cycles before becoming a brick.
so if you charged it everyday, that would be less than 3 years.

In addition, as the battery ages, it's ability to fully charge is lessened. That is why it is important to fully discharge the battery before connecting it up again. Some MFRs have software installed to "calibrate" the battery which you should run periodically which will lengthen the life of your battery.

After about 10-30 minutes after cycle is finished there is water around and under washer

Your discharge hose is leaking. Check the hose itself, of course (for hoses), but the problem is most likely a loose connection of the discharge hose to the discharge outlet.
To inspect these items, you'll need to remove the back cover of the unit
(typically 11/32-in nutdriver), and follow the discharge hose to the discharge outlet. You may find that the hose clamp needs to be replaced, or that the
end of the hose is deteriorated, and needs to be cut off an inch shorter, and the hose clamp re-applied.

The water hose got cut in half.

I had the same issue when a friend tried to use mine - if you remove the top plate, you can then lengthen the hose as there is an extra bit of tubing. It should be enough to reach the bottom of the water container again. You can then attach the filter from the severed half.

Water will not drain out of washer

Disconnect the discharge hose from the washer and look for a clog at both ends of the hose. Also, look down where the discharge port is on the washer and clear out the clog there also. If you see no clogs, then make sure your discharge hose is not crimped at such an angle to prevent water from flowing through. Also, make sure your discharge hose is not running on the floor and that it goes vertical straight 4.5 to 5 feet from the floor and then loops directly into the discharge pipe. Give that a shot. Still no water drain? Then the water pump needs to be replaced.

HI, The exhaust vent in the back of the dryer is too short to clamp or tape the venting to. We cannot get it to stay hooked up. Any ideas on how to lengthen this? Do we need to remove the back of the dryer...

If your using a soft hose, go down and buy a corrugated aluminum hose. While you are there check to see if they have any metal tie wraps. However the heaver hose may do the trick. Also check to ensure that there is not any restrictions where you are discharging the air to. Let me know how it goes. :?) DRRXR
