Leaking anti-siphon hose?


I found the source of the leak in the back of my Kenmore front load washer. It is a small rubber hose that tees off the drain hose. I think it is an anti-siphon hose like this one http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDeta...r=417.44152400 . What does this do? While I wait for the part is it necessary? Or can I just clamp it off?

It prevents the dirty washing machine water from entering your domestic water system.

I see repair clinic has it on back order with no expected date of arrival. Have you tried searspartsdirect.com (click on link below). They may have one in stock and ready for shipping. Just type in your kenmore model number and check it out. Maybe you can use some gorilla or stopleak tape for awhile if it's not to bad of a leak. Just a suggestion.

I put gorilla tape on. It was hard to reach but it did slow it down. I'll have to take it apart more to get at it. The hose I wound up ordering came from another source. Sears wants too much for everything. I chose the one available that had the lowest total price between the item and shipping.

for the record, www.appliancepartspros.com is another great source for parts. Like repairclinic.com, they also have a good repair repository.

I'm still waiting for this hose. It is on nationwide back order with an estimated arrival date of 7/18. It turns out the place I ordered it from only thought they had the part. I wouldn't think such an obscure part would be completely sold out everywhere. In the meantime the gorilla tape fix completely solved the leakage problem.

Thanks for the update Jim. I have used that gorilla tape on pipe leaks as well. Works for a quick fix on just about anything.

You could also go to the local auto store or Ace Hardware, and get an inline Rubber hose splice, then use clamps to secure. If all it is is Rubber hosing. You should be able to take it off and get a length from the local Ace Hardware or even Farm & Home store back in the Small Engine shop off of the reel.

They sent me another e-mail yesterday saying that the new ETA for the hose was 7/25 so I cancelled my order. I will be looking for the inline splice mentioned but truthfully the gorilla tape is holding tight and it's not leaking a drop.

Just coat with some 3M Electrical coating, and it will last a long time.

i wouldn't clamp it off , that is so that when it drain's and start's to fill it won't siphon the water out , if you have one on order ? you could use some gorilla tape, that is the best tape not duck tape or the gray kind , you should be ok for a while
