Is it a clear hose about 3/8" thick?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

yes, it is a clear hose, not sure of the thickness

Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.
That is the pressure tube. Look on the back side of the outer tub towrads the bottom, but on the side for a box that is molded on the outer tub. There is a port on top of that that the pressure tube slides onto. If that is off it will leak all over and will keep filling as well. Look at the red circled spot to show you

so i must take the panel to do that???

Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.
No you should be able to tip the unit up and do it from underneath, That has the cover off just to show you where it is. You should easily be able to reach up and just slip it back on. Normally it is just a slip fit and it may have a guide ring to go through to keep it from popping off when the tub spins.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

thank you, will do my best to see if i can get it attached again.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.


i do not see a box anywhere

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

i seem to think that the hose came somewhere from the top, i traced it with my hand and it is connected to something on the side of the tub,but the other part is just hanging there.

Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.
Ok then it has come off the pressure switch in the console. One end is connected to the side of the outer tub and the other goes up to the console and slips on the pressure switch port on the switch.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

just where is that located?

Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.
Can you get me the complete model and then I can get you a breakdown of it.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

LCR7244HQO IS THE MODEL NUMBER I HAVE NO CLUE WHAT MODEL IT IS, IT IS JUST A PORTABLE WASHER FOR AN APARTMENT. IT WAS GIVEN TO ME

Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.
The tube would connect to part #12 at this link. There are 2 screws on the back edge to get the whole top to push forward and lift it off. The pressure switch is under the knob that you select the load size to give you an idea where it is.
