Home Improvement & Maintenance : How to Install a Washing Machine


Hello, this is Oscar Moreno with Moreno Custom
Home Visions and today we’re going to teach you guys how to install your washing machine.
Basic tools you’re going to need is a pair of crescent wrenches or adjustable pliers.
And you’re also going to need another set of just regular old handy general pliers,
okay. First thing that’s going to come in your washing dryer, I mean in your washing
machine is going to be your drain line. Your drain line is going to be attached with a
real simple compression washer, which will be installed at the bottom. Also, we’re going
to – that comes with your washing machine is a cold and a hot line which are indicated
by the red color and the blue colors. Once you got all your supplies ready you can go
ahead and attach your drain line first to your washing machine at the bottom. After
you’ve done that you can go ahead and attach your hot water supply line to the H which
indicates for hot water right next to your hot water supply line. And then you’re going
to connect your blue hose to your cold water supply which will be indicated by a simple
C letter right next to your fitting where you connect your hose. Once you get those
two guys hooked up, you can go ahead and get your washer closer to your area where you’re
going to install it. You’re going to go ahead and install your red sleeve hose to your hot
water supply and your cold sleeve hose to your cold water supply. Once you’ve got those
guys connected go ahead and grab your drain line and basically all you have to do is just
make sure your drain line cups inside the drain hole real easily and it just falls into
place. Last thing you do is hook up your power supply and you’re ready to start washing clothes.
And that’s how you hook up a washer.

  1. thank you oscar! i wanted to get a w/m when i moved, and everyone told me to get it installed by a pro. because you don't want to flood your place. i just moved ,am a single mom and have alot of expences, so money is tight. every where i called quoted me of over 150.00 to install thanks to your video i think i can do it myself, i'm going to go looking around for one tomarrow and i'll be sure to check the back to see how difficult it will be thank you for making it.soooo simple to understand

  2. So, let me get this straight……just hand tighten ?
    Don't check the condition of the rubber washer ?
    Don't check for leaks before pushing into place ?
    etc.etc.etc.

  3. Good video but he missed some steps, such as tightning the ends of the hoses. also you need to have your drain line secure by using a zip tie and attache it to one of the hoses to avoid it from coming off.

  4. What if I don't have a cold and a hot water faucet but using the regular sink faucet that combines hot and cold??
    Please help!!

  5. its the law not to fuck about in mexico otherwise you will get beat up with a baseball bat like a piniata then taken to the butcher and have your balls chopped off, unfortunately the same does not apply in britain
