Question about Breville Refrigerators
I'm not exactly sure what you mean by a washing machine hookup. Most washing machines hookups have two hose bibbs (faucets that a hose can screw on to), one for hot and one for cold. Refrigerators have a 1/4 inch flexible line, either copper or plastic. So, I'm assuming that you mean you have a hose bibb for the water supply and you want to connect it to the quarter inch line on the fridge.
The best approach would be to remove the hose bibb and connect to the line that is feeding it. Assuming that it is a 1/2" rigid copper pipe you can get adaptors at a plumbing store or at a store like Home Depot to step it down to 1/4", then connect to the fridge line with a compression fitting. If your hose bibb is threaded, you would start at the wall with the same size threaded connection and see what your local store has available in the line of adaptors. Best would be if you can find a single adaptor that will go from 1/2" to 1/4". You may need one to go from 1/2" to 3/8" and another to go from 3/8" to 1/4".
A second approach that would be a jury rig type of thing (say if you can't get the hose bibb off) would be to get a hose end connector to attach to the faucet and step it down with clamps and tubing. Use adaptors that fit inside tubing of successively smaller sizes (2 steps will probably do it) ending with 1/4" plastic that you can attach to your fridge with a compression union. (they make 3/8" to 1/4" compression unions, so you would only need to end with a 3/8 inch tube making the connection with the adaptor/union.
Modify this according to what you have in the house (say if you have 5/8" water lines instead of 1/2").
If I'm not understanding your problem correctly, please clarify.
