Changing washer and dryer hookups and why its important. There is nothing more important that to change your washer and dryer hookups every 5 years. Why? Because the parts get worn out and remember, a washer is connected to a hot and cold water supply that is always on for “on demand” water source. If these parts fail, it spells disaster. Also, a dryer has a 4″ flex pipe which vents are from the dryer. It pays to change the flex line because most all have developed holes and perforations over time from moving the dryer occasionally. It also insures that no debris has gotten caught in the line directly behind the dryer. Changing washer and dryer hookups.

Ideally, your washing machine is usually installed close to your water heater and has wall mounted taps into the outlet and inlet lines for your cold and hot water supply. We install new hot sand water supply lines made from braided stainless steel or high burst poly lines.
We make sure the drain line is properly installed and secured to the box. When a machine that uses as much water as a washing machine does, it needs a place to drain this water. A washing machine drain is called a standpipe, and it empties into what’s called a P-trap. This then directs the water into a waste line. We make sure the connections are secure and in place.
Plano Texas Handyman makes sure the dryer is properly vented and change the vent pipe with new clamps for more efficient operation. This also opens the vent pipe from any debris or obstructions.
A dryer vent or duct is key to the operation of your clothes dryer. Without it, the dryer cannot dry your clothing and there is even a significant risk of fire.
Installing a dryer vent properly, keeping it clean, and troubleshooting minor problems are simple, inexpensive, and essential ways to help your dryer function properly.
Clothes dryers function by tumbling wet clothing through heated air in a rotating drum. This heated air evaporates the moisture, picks it up, and with a fan, pushes it out of the dryer.
Not only that, the vent carries this moist air from the dryer to the home’s exterior. On the back of every dryer is a 4-inch diameter metal vent that expels the water-laden air.
With most dryers, you cannot blow this air into your house interior. The air is moved from the dryer to the exterior with a flexible, semi-rigid, or rigid tube. One end of this tube attaches to the dryer, and the other end attaches to a hole cut in the side of the house.
