So that's working at present, what happens next? If the hose leaks into the base of machine it will trip the anti flood device and pump out, keep pumping until you remove the water.
Perhaps you can join hase with one of these: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WASHING-M...A%2BFICS%2BUFI&otn=21&pmod=200403347268&ps=54
It does get to the point where it just keeps draining, but it was doing that without the leak. I even removed the float in case something was tripping it the other day, and it still did it. Is it worth buying that joiner - do you think I will get it working?
