Where does this get the water for the steam function? Does it have a tank or does it need to be connected to a water line?
Asked by: JD
From the whirlpool response, you would use the y connector to access the cold water like for your washer. Makes sense but it says "The dryer must be connected to the cold water faucet using the new inlet hoses. Do not use old hoses." Does that mean I have to buy new hoses? There is only a short hose that comes with it and the manual says to get 5' hose. When I purchased and selected the installation, there was no option to add hoses. Do I need new hose or no?
