Most people, including plumbers and appliance parts resellers have no idea how hoses fail. The industry standard and the hoses usually supplied with the washer, a 3/8" black hose, is the most commonly supplied and causes the lion's share of damage. They fail because the inexpensive steel alloy coupling degrades due to galvanic corrosion and razors the hose to perforation. That's the reason these hoses fail at or within a few inches of the coupling. At 70 lbs. p.s.i., one of these hoses will discharge 600 gallons of water per hour, weighing some 5,000 pounds; the weight of a Lincoln Town Car. Imagine this happening while you're sleeping through the night, away for the weekend, or on vacation.
Manufacturers warn owners of their washers to shut off the water supply when not using the machine, but very, very few read or heed the warning and the floodwaters keep rising. And for economic reasons, manufacturers and their hose suppliers have no incentive to equip washers with safe, long lasting hoses. Millions of washing machines are produced annually and the bean counters have done their work well. After settling vigorously defended product liability lawsuits out of court, substantial profit is still realized in o.e.m. and after market sales of millions of pairs of these cost engineered hoses. They're aware that an insurance company will only subrogate in an attempt to recover damages when the amounts are worth going after. They're not going to spend $15,000 in legal fees to recover $10,000. The awards they do pay are considered the cost of doing business. The consumer and their insurers continue to suffer increasing losses. The beat goes on.
