Advice on Using Flood-Safe Hoses with a Washing Machine

One word: Don't.

Beware of the "flood-safe" hoses, we see lots of them that don't allow any water into the washer.
Funny you should mention the 'flood-safe' hoses. I swapped out the hot one with a regular stainless hose and now all is good, except two trips and a new valve that i didn't need to purchase. Man, learning hurts sometimes.
