There is a specific tool called washer hose pliers that was designed to tighten these hoses since the receptacles are recessed into the back of the washer and that makes this really simple, below is a link to the tool.

Without those, it's a fight for sure and really the only way to tighten the hoses is 1/10 turn at a time using small channel locks or something like that.
