Are there gaskets in the hose connections? The little black rubber rings in the ends is what i am talking about.

Sounds like the hose washers are missing --take off the hose and look----

The hot water hose was leaking at the connection to my daughter's washing machine. I thought it was the washer, but it still leaked after I installed a new one. I bought a new set of hoses and the leak stopped.
