I have a zanussi washer 6161P and the drainage hose does not

Resolved Question:

I have a zanussi washer 6161P and the drainage hose does not securely fit the under sink spigots, it is a wider hose to feed into the stand pipe- is there a connector I can get so I can fit it securely to the under sink tap spigots - I have 2 connection sites unused?

Hi Is the rubber bung part still on the waste hose or has it been cut off? Regards

Still on and I am looking to connect it to the under tap spigots pictured, but it's not a water tight seal as is and I can't see the desired stand pipe, can I change it for a drainage pipe that does fit and screw in or...?
Expert:  Daniel T. replied 12 months ago.
Arrh i see it. The waste hose is a standed size hose even tough it looks bigger but its the same as any other washer. Looking at the pictures you sent i see the spigots on this sink unit is smaller then usually ones so thats what you problem is. All you need to do on this is use a jubliee clip on the waste hose to tighen it onto the spigot and this will stop the leak and seal it up proberly for you. Ive had this issue myself on these small spigots so using a jubliee clip to tighten the waste hose to the spigot will fix the problem you have here. Regards
