How to handle metric (British) fitting on washing machine inlet?
I have a Whirlpool LHW0050pq washing machine. I'd like to replace the 5-year-old rubber hoses that came with the machine. These hoses are threaded for metric on one end and standard at the other. The manual says that installing new hoses requires a "British to universal hose adapter (part no 3357451)." It seems like I will need an adapter in order to replace my hoses with stainless steel braided. I found the part on ebay for $15. Just curious if there is something I could get at local home center in lieu of ordering online.
