Braided Hoses? Green Rubber Washer Replacement?

So most of us are familiar with the S.Steel Braided Hoses. I had to detached the hoses since I am working on my clothes washer. I was told by the hardware guy that they don't sell the washers for them.Folks just replace the whole hose. They come with(green) rubber/washers? Also seem to be thicker. Anyone ever add a screen with rubber washers on theirs? Another hardware store told me they just use regular garden r hose washers. Which seems to be holding up so far.!

They replace the hoses because it's actually a rubber hose with a stainless steel mesh over. The hose breaks down over time like anything else that's rubber so it's a good idea to replace the hose... before it bursts.
