    Hi there.

    I am having a problem with the connection of my washing machine to the main water supply.

    There is a small but constant dripping of water from the 'cold' connection.

    This leak happens whether or not the machine is in use.

    If I attempt to loosen the connection water begins to spray out in an alarming way.

    It also continues when I turn the lever that is supposed to stop water overflowing when you dissconnect the machine.

    I have been told that this could be due to a washer wearing out?

    Can anyone help?

    Apols if correct terms not used - Have attempted to attach a Word file which (if it works) could explain more clearly.

    Thanks a lot

    xx

    Sounds like the hose washer is worn out, replace it with a new washer.
