Got my great new GE washer and installed it and hey! The lid
is larger than my old washer's lid. And goes higher. So it
hits the cabinets above it. Doesn't fully open.
The old washer lid swung about 18" up from the washer top,
fully raised. The new one goes about two feet.
So what to do? The cabinets are decent storage, and they're a
big one-piece deal, would have to take out the whole thing.
Don't want to put in another set of supply and drain of course;
that's expensive plumbing. That leaves moving the washer
five or six feet away from its hookups.
Well I'd have to get longer hoses. I'm sure that can be done.
I'm guessing supply is no problem, it's under pressure
and a few more feet makes no difference at all.
Drain however is another question. How far can you go?
Is there a recognized limit on length of drain hose?
Does this depend on your washer, how powerful its pump is?
Any experience on doing this?
