I have an LG WM3677HW combo washer/dryer; been good machine, never an issue. Problem is that plumber’s helper split the gray drain hose while moving it, and now the hose has to be replaced. Hose does not just simply attach to an outlet on the back of the machine (that would be too easy), it goes into the back of the machine at an upward angle. I did find a diagram of the machine and the external drain hose is part of an internal hose assembly. I Can I replace just the drain hose, or does the whole drain hose assembly have to be replaced? How do I access this? Thanks…

A somewhat big job.

Need to remove:

Top cover

Front control panel

Front of washer.
To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

OK, job is done; replacing the drain hose only is actually VERY easy - took all of about three minutes. I ordered the F435 hose above and that was the right part, it mounts just inside the back cover and is replaced from the top. Take out the lower screw on each of the two plastic "latches" on the upper back. Slide the top towards the back (take out the dispenser tray and hit it with the palm of your had to get it started). Remove the top and you'll see where the hose connects just inside on the back. With pair of small channel locks or big pliers to relieve the tension, slide the hose clamp up and off the hose. Remove old hose, install new hose, reposition hose clap, put top back on; you're done!
