Answer: 
I guess you could, but if you are using a regular garden hose, then you would not be able to attach anything to them unless you change the end of your hose

Answer: 
I believe the valves would be fine running either way, however the only issue you might have is the male/female ends. The main stem is a female connector that screws onto the spigot. The two other stems with the valves are male connectors and hoses need to be attached to them. If that works for your setup it should be just fine to use in reverse.

Answer: 
Technically you probably could but based on the type of connections on the ends and the way the hoses would generally connect, it typically lends itself to a 1 in/2 out configuration.

Answer: 
Thank you for contacting Melnor regarding the Metal 2-Way Hose Valve. The valve is not designed to operate with the flow of water coming in the two outlets and out the inlet. Using the 2-Way in this manner can result in leakage.

Answer: 
Hi Esi,
I suppose it is possible to accomplish what you are asking it to do. Water will flow both ways through this valve.
There is another Y-Mixer available that may work better. Find it here: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-Y-Mixer-Washing-Machine-Hose-HRBFIL02EB/206170024
Thank you for asking,

No need to purchase a new hose - 1/2", 3/4" and 5/8" hose all use standard couplings so they will connect to the same hose end item.

Answer: 
Could be thread quality poor in connector or hose. Use white plumbing tape to wrap around spigot end to make a tighter fix. Maybe use a wrench to tighten. Unfortunately this will make it impractical to remove and re-attach.

Answer: 
I guess, it will work. Just double check the thread on your washer inlet - usually it's a hose thread. But I would not recommend this connector. It fell apatr on me in about a year. If your washers are insuide the house, you are risking having a major flood one day.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK but could be better I find that afer 2 seasons, you'll need to get a new one. I do remove them at the end of season, however: 1) the plastic housing around the valve cracks and falls off 2) the threads will corrode up if you have hard water 3) turning the valve on-off becomes an issue after a few months of service. I've had to resort to leaving them open and putting a cut-off valve after the Y to turn off the connections. So while they do work, they could be better designed or be made of better materials. However the zinc or plastic Y connectors are not any better

I have used this product for a couple weeks now and I am pleased with the quality of construction. The fittings are well made and it seems like a product that will last a long time. I bought this connector to replace a cheaper one that broke after about 1 year....the control handle on one side broke off, and when closed the valve still allowed some water to pass through. This one seems much more solid...the handles open/close with a solid feel and there is no water leakage when closed.

The cut-offs are a bit stiff right now, so a good deal of force is needed to switch them on or off, but they'll probably loosen up over time. The faucet that I have this connector on faces south, so it'll be getting a lot of sun. It will be interesting to see how the plastic parts hold up over time. At this time, I have a hose with a quick connect on one side, and the other side is open to allow filling a watering can for plants on the porch.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not enough threads This item made of brass and is of good quality. However, there are not enough threads. As a result it does not screw on enough and the connection comes apart. I don't think it actually screws on a full turn which is not enough to keep it secure. I purchased this item to screw on the end of a hose so I can turn off the water in order to attach another hose or a nozzle or sprinkler. I have to use pliers to attach it securely enough so as not to come off the hose.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a quality product This connector was poorly manufactured and leaks. I tried several hoses, replaced hose washers, wrapped with Teflon tape to try to help seal the connection, nothing worked. I tried the hoses on another connection and no leaks. I ended up buying a different type of Y connector with the same hoses and it worked flawlessly. While this may be an isolated case, I would not waste the money on it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK but could be better I bought this to replace one just like it that I had bought not long ago. A few weeks ago I "bumped" the first one and it broke the "Y" section off. The metal thickness where it broke was no more than 1 mm. I think if the manufacturer would make the connector twice as thick, it would be a great product and not just a fair product, and should not add too much to its already high price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hard to use While this a well built product and something I felt I had to have vs the plastic one, the valve levers are very hard to tur off and on using ones fingers. Pliers is the only way we can do it. Over a period of time the neoprene covers on the levers crack and come loose or off. I really hate to recommend this because of the lever problem they sure beat the plastic version.
