Question Corroded hose fitting for washing machine

We purchased a new washing machine but the hose fitting for the old washer hose is corroded to the valve fitting and it's in a tight area. I tried vice grips and plyers but I'm afraid of breaking
the line in the wall if I try too hard. Is there anything short of a plummer taht can loosen this fitting ?

Hold a back-up wrench or channel-lock pliers on the valve and use a larger wrench or channel-locks on the hose fitting to remove it.
You might soak it with WD-40 or other solvent to help loosen it first.
Good Luck!
