    Hi I am after some advice on how to connect the drain on a Samsung ECO Bubble washing machine into my kitchen sink U Bend, There has never been a washing machine fitted before so i will be starting from scratch but to my untrained eye it looks as simple as connecting the pipe to the existing fitting already under the sink with a Jubilee clip.....surely it can't be that simple?

    It can be and it is.
    But check the appliance waste connection on the trap, does not have cap on/in it first, as that would need removing.

    Yep. As pbd says above... just make sure that spigot isn't bunged up with a cap and you may have to cut the end off the spigot to suit the circumference of the drain hose (which may have a rubber boot on the end).

    Thanks for the quick response! that makes life very easy just the water feed to sort now are the self cutting taps actually any good? I only ask as i have a very short length of pipe sticking out of the wall to play with.

    I avoid them like the plague but have had to resort to the things in the past.

    Make sure you loop the washing machine drain hose up, from where it attaches to the waste, to prevent backflow from the sinks(s) running into the washing machine.
