      I don’t know if this is the right place to ask or not but here goes…

      We are attempting to remove our older washing machine in preparation for the delivery of the new one. The cold water hose disconnected just fine. The hot water hose has rusted unnoticed. It won’t disconnect…any suggestions on how to loosen it. Can’t afford a plumber unless we have to. Thanks. JL.

      If you paid for delivery and install, then its their problem, not yours
