    Hi all.

    I have a Hotpoint washing machine and it has developed a leak. From looking, it appears that the leak is coming from the cold water supply hose. As you look at the hose where it fits in to the machine, it has a plastic knurled nut that you tighten. The water is coming from where the pipe enters the nut....

    New pipes/hoses or repair?

    Thanks in advance.

    A new hose is only a few pounds - best to replace it.
