Can a flood safe washer supply hose cause a new washing machine to stop prior to final rinse?

I recently purchased a new washer (Frigidaire) and have had the problem of the machine stopping just prior to final rinse every time. I've had 3 repairmen try to fix it, first the control board then the door latch. The last one said that the flood safe hose isn't allowing enough water to send the machine into its next cycle. Is this possible and will changing the hose to a standard supply hose work? Also , do they make an 8' supply line , my washer is 6+' from the valves?

My thoughts would be that this has nothing to do with your washer not working like it should. All of the flood safe hoses I have seen are completely separate from the washer. If you had the valves off to the water and tried to use your washer it would still try and fill up because it does not know when the water is on or not. Sounds to me like they are using that for an excuse because they do not know how to fix your problem. They do make long hoses, this is a 10 foot one: http://www.appliancerepair.homedepot.com鈥?/a>


But I do not think this is the problem. Good luck...Can a flood safe washer supply hose cause a new washing machine to stop prior to final rinse?
I bought the Flow safe stainless steel washing machine hoses but I'm taking them back. I connected them today and they have cause nothing but trouble and concern. Didn't work properly even after several times of repeating the re-set proceedures. Don't buy, They're a pain in the a**. Report Abuse

new washers use atc, automatic temperature control, to regulate how much of which temp water to comply with government regulations. what is happening is the ';flood-safe'; hose will shut down as it is designed, the hose has a safety type valve built into one end to stop any mass amounts of water from ';flooding'; your home and then no water will enter the unit causing the washer to fail and not run. it is the hose. try a new, different type of hose and that will fix the problem.


also you want to be sure the longer, metal end of the hose is one the faucet, not on the washer.
