The Trusted Quality Stainless Steel Lines by FLUIDMASTER and the SharkBite connections ensure quick set up and long-lasting durability. The kit includes a 2 pack of 60 in.

These hoses are definitely the high quality assemblies that I have come to expect from the sharkbite brand. The braided lines are very strong and give you a lot of peace of mind after installation that they wont let go. If you are hesitating at all about the push to connect installation method, we have had a few of these fittings installed in our house for longer than we have owned it. Quality product from a good manufacturer.

Sharkbite fittings make connections much easier than sweating pipe. Remember to clean the cut end of the copper pipe. Also make sure you measure and press the fitting on to the correct depth. These include the shutoff valve and hose as one piece. The valve is angled so it is meant to be used in a wall box. The only drawback is that the hose is crimped to the valve so when the hose needs to be replaced in 5 years you would need to replace everything.

If you don't like sweating copper joints and glue is out of the question than you will like these shark bite hoses for your washer. They are the complete valve and hose combination that will save you a lot of aggravation with little or no mess. I have never had a problem with shark bite fittings and the hoses are plenty long enough at 60". I do recommend securing the fitting with 2 screws to cut down on vibration!

Unlike traditional washing machine hoses, these have the shut off valve built in. It it a toss up to recommend these or not as having the Shark Bite pipe connector means shutting the water off to the house, cutting the old valve off the pipe in the wall, and pressing the new valve on the pipe. If it is for a new home installation it would be fine. If the hose ever needs replacing, it will mean replacing the entire unit, valve and all since the hose is crimp fitted on the valve. This is a product made in China.
This SharkBite 1/2 in. x 3/4 in. MHT Brass Push-to-Connect Washing Machine Installation Kit is going to be a big help in our laundry room remodel. I have never cared for the rubber hoses to connect the water to the washing machine. These stainless steel hoses are so much stronger and a lot less likely to burst open. And having the push to connect is really a time saver and so much easier to con. No sweat fittings to do and they are easy to remove if needed. In my case the 60" length is a big plus because I really need that little extra length. The hoses will also connect to pipes such as copper, PEX, CPVC or PE-RT.

I have been a builder remodeler for 51 years, and as such I have had many opportunities to install plumbing. But often, when remodeling and adding or modifying a line, a product like this SHARKBITE 1/2 IN. X 3/4 IN. MHT BRASS PUSH-TO-CONNECT WASHING MACHINE INSTALLATION KIT fits the bill well. While they are more expensive for the materials, the savings in time and setup will more than compensate for the added material cost, so it thereby provides an alternative.

For years I wasn't comfortable using Sharkbite because it was new to me. About 6 years have passed and I've been through many homes that have used it for years with no issue. Sometimes do I prefer the traditional method? Sure, but I guess I don't have too much of a reason to fear it anymore. I like that it partnered up with Fluidmaster(hose) and it does what it does best and make the sharkbite connection. Remember to clean your copper pipe well before inserting it into the sharkbite and make sure you go in the correct depth. I only needed to change the hot water side but decided to do both since it came in a kit and it was so easy to do.

We are moving the washer and dryer down to the basement to make a larger room. The SHARKBITE 1/2 IN. X 3/4 IN. MHT BRASS PUSH-TO-CONNECT WASHING MACHINE INSTALLATION KIT is a practical option for us DIYers that just haven’t mastered soldering. I like the ease of push to fit. And since the wall behind the pipes will be open, I think these hoses with angle fitting valves will be much easier for us to install. The braised hosing is great quality, very strong. The open/close valve is strong and easy to turn. The overall quality seems really good too. This push to fit technology should help get our project finished.

Like all SharkBite connectors I’ve used, these hoses are perfect. They work on practically all type of pipes (Copper, PEX, CPVC or PE-RT). No clamps or glue is needed. I’ve used a lot of SharkBite connectors and have never had one leak and I expect this one to be just as dependable. The hoses are stainless steel and well made, so you won’t have to worry about them bubbling out, and eventually bursting. They are 5' long which allows for the washing machine to be shifted around for convenience.
