Had a new washer delivered today (Model #MVWP575GW)

The drain hose is too short. The extension kit they sell is ridiculously priced at $27 for the hose extension and $47 for the connector that joins the 2 hoses.

I bought a 3rd party 6ft drain hose which the connection fits perfectly. The only issue I have is the diameter of the 3rd party hose seems to be a bit larger. I would say the factory one is 1" and the 3rd party one is about 1.25 "

I am wondering if this larger diameter could cause unnecessary stress on the drain pump and or if it could void the warranty. I have yet to actually try the new hose yet

Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
