Remove a stuck laundry hose
Rusted-on laundry hoses are nearly impossible to unscrew. If you need to remove or replace your laundry hose and just can’t get it loose, here’s how to unhook a washer solution. Carefully cut through the hose end. Try to avoid cutting too deep, but don’t worry if you nick the threads on the valve. The threads don’t seal the connection. That’s taken care of by the rubber washer. You can use a hacksaw to make the cuts, but a Dremel tool with an abrasive cutoff wheel works even better (Photo 1). Cut the hose end in two places, then try to unscrew the fitting with water pump pliers or a pipe wrench. If it’s still stuck, break it off with the pliers (Photo 2).
