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.

You can check, but I suspect the typical big box store isn't going to have an adapter like that. You could check with a local plumbing supply house - even if they don't stock what you need they could get it. Take one of the hoses with you.

Thanks. Good to know that I'm not making this more difficult than it needs to be.

You're welcome. A real plumbing supply place might even have stainless braided hoses with the correct connectors. That would make things even easier.
