Rusted hot/cold washer water connectors

I was in the laundry room and noticed the hot and cold water hose connectors are rusted.

i need to repalce them

Are these standard hoses like these https://www.homedepot.com/p/GE-4-ft-...-205473453-_-N

or do i need specific ones for the washer?

Should i use PB Blaster to loosen them before attempting to replace?

Braided supply hoses are a definite plus. A little PB Blaster couldn't hurt.

Well...........the hot water hose came off without an issue.

cold water is another problem. i cut the hose so i could get to the coupling. tried PB Blaster and waited 40 minutes,,tried to turn it with channel locks,. .no good.

it will not budge,,


In the pic, with the arrow pointing at the large hex nut, can this be loosened to remove the valve and replace it with a new valve ?

I had to do something similar last year. Both of my hoses were so rusted onto the hose bibbs that I couldn't get them off. I removed the shutoff valves and replaced them with new shutoffs and new hoses.

I would suggest that you put a wrench on the fitting that the arrow is pointing to and keep it from turning. Using a pipe wrench, unscrew the valve from the fitting with the arrow pointing to it.

While the valve you linked to appears correct, be sure you have the right diameter thread. I can't tell what thread size you have from the picture.

ok,

I don't think i have a pipe wrench.
Could i put a wrench on the hex part of the valve right above the compression fitting?

Which direction do i turn the valve?

Counter clockwise ?

thanks

Wrenches will work of you can use a hacksaw to slice the hose connector and than peel the hose part off. The hose dose not seal on the threads so a little slice there will not hurt.

There is not a lot of room to use a hacksaw

I was going to replace the valve.

Based on the info i provided below about the replacing it, will that new valve work and the process I described?

thasnks

You linked to a screw on boiler valve. That won't work.

You would need to hold the old valve and turn the nut. At the current time the copper pipe and the valve are bound together. You don't want to twist the copper pipe.

Here's a problem you are going to have changing that valve..... it's a compression valve and there will be a brass ferrule on the copper pipe holding the nut on that will need to be cut off.

This video shows the type valve you have..... you tube/watch?v=_0UW5QHRg34

one type replacement valve
another replacement valve

thanks....not much room to work and if the need is to cut off a brass ferrule, there may not be enough pipe to work with?

You can't cut the pipe. There's not enough to work with there. If you break the valve free.... you may be able to use a new valve with the existing nut and ferrule. No guarantee to be the same threads but you could take old valve with you and try in the store.

I would try the hacksaw first. Just use the blade, wrap it in a rag so you don't cut your hand.
