shut off valve for washing machine


I have a valve that needs to be replaced because it is spraying water. For now, only way to stop it is by shutting off the main water supply from the basement. Is there another valve that shuts off the water to the washing machine so that I can get water to the rest of the house? Thanks.

Most likly not unless someone installed it.
No reason you can not install one now.

Post a picture of the valve that's leaking now. There's lots of other valves avalible that would not be as likly to leak in the future.

thanks, but the problem is that the right side is cracked. as you can see in this photo that it is attached to the water supply line. At this point, I think I will need to call the professional.
