Cut and reattach flexible waste pipe

Postby Biver » Fri Oct 08, 2021 8:51 pm

I have an integrated washing machine from which a flexible, ribbed waste pipe enters the drain under the sink. The pipe has split near the junction to the nozzle under the sink and this is leaking.

The split is temporarily gaffer taped

I think I need to cut the pipe before the split but then I am unsure how to attach it to the nozzle so that it gets a waterproof seal. I don't want to replace the whole hose because I am not sure how to get the integrated washing machine out.

Any advice on parts I need to buy gratefully received!

Simply Build It

Hi biver
The washing machine waste pipe has concentric rings so you can cut the minimum off the split end, fit it back onto the waste nozzle and fix in place using a hose clamp.

Thanks a lot for the feedback, I really appreciate it.

The end of the pipe used to have a rubber end that fixed tightly to the nozzle so I was worried that if I cut off that rubber end then the pipe would not form a tight seal. I'll give this a go though and hope for the best, do you think it's necessary to put some silicon around the nozzle joint as well?
