Install new drain hose on kenmore washer

by Manage My Life Last activity date:
February 1st, 2011

I have a Sears Kenmore washer Model #110-29422801. I orderee a longer hose because the hose that came on the machine is 18 in too short. I was sent part number 258666. I have the washer apart and it doesn't look like what is on the pump. Is it to be grafted onto the existing hose or installed inline from the pump or on the pump? I did not receive the promised instructions in the box which the hose was sent in. It looked like it was packed by someonre having a very bad day at work. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I solved the problem. I purchased the things I needed at Home Depot for about $12.00. I should have gone there first.

The hose you were sent should fit on the end of the existing hose. The image of the kit I sent you earlier would fit on the end of the existing drain hose with the attachments and clamps.

The one you were sent should fit over the hose and attach with the one clamp you were sent.

I have tried to find a copy of the instructions that should have been included but have been unsuccessful.

If the hose you were sent is only about 3 feet long then it should fit on the end of the existing drain hose.

Thanks for trying but the pics don't show the unit from the back, I still haven't gotten answer to my original question. I called Parts Direct and was given two different answers. One gentleman said the part i needed is 280130 not 280131. I was then transfererred to another gentleman who said the 258666 was what I need ,but I needed to purchase another part from Whirlpool for an additional $25.00 plus shipping. When I told him that I had been told originally that what I ordered was all I needed he said he would transfer me to his manager. He then came back on and told me his manager was busy and would call me back. It has been almost 24 hours and I haven't gotten a call. I think I will have to schedule a service call to resolve this . THIS WILL BE MY LAST KENMORE APPLIANCE!! This is the worst customer service I have ever experienced bar none!

That looks similar to what was sent to me,but I only have one clamp,the length of hose and the u-shaped hose . No installation instructions were in the box. So I guess I paid $56.00 for the wrong part and I will have to do without my washer until the right part arrives. I am still wanting to know how you install the hose. Do you break the coupling just outside the back of the cabinet? If so, how do you do it? It looks like I could turn the square shaped clamping device with pliers and screw the hose out of it, then insert the new hose inside the hose coming from the pump.

It would seem you got the wrong hose. The part number per the owner's manual would be 40922.

The image below is the 40922 hose with attachments and instructions.

The kit for a longer hose is 280131 which substitutes to the 40922 hose.

I hope this helps. I am not sure where the 258666 part number came from but from the description you give it is not for this washer.

That's great to hear that you are wanting to change the drain hose on your own. I was able to locate some information that might help you along. The expert provided instructions on the replacing the hose i hope that this information is helpful and useful.
