Hoses on dishwashers and washing machines weaken over time and start to break down. This can result in extensive water damage to your home if not replaced. Check the water hoses on these items for signs of deterioration such as cracks and bubbles. If you notice any signs, replace the hose.
Rubber water hoses for washers usually have a life expectancy of at least 5 years.
A quick check before you leave for vacation is a great idea.
