If I’m reading you correctly then it would simply be a matter of removing the washing machine hose and screwing the hose fitting into that. They should be the same thread, so you shouldn’t have to do anything to get them to fit.

Just be careful though because hoses are notorious for coming off and spraying water everywhere.

@MitchellMc   i want to connect to where the washing

machine hose are connected. i was thinking of just detaching the washing machine hose temporarily and attach a water hose just to clean my veranda. 

i was confuse coz the guy from bunnings told me that it’s not possible to connect a water hose on the tap without an aerator..

@Ben1,

As the team member mentioned that you needed an aerator, it suggests they believed you wanted to connect the hose onto the end of a sink tap spout. No aerator is required for connecting the hose to the wall where the washing machine attaches.

If you remove the washing machine hose from the wall, a standard Pope 12mm Universal Tap Adaptor should screw directly onto the exposed thread. This will allow a garden hose to click on. Remember to shut your mains water off before unscrewing your washing machine hose.

some common problems that i encountered was water dripping out from the hose connection to tap, but probably i just needed a better water hose connector but other than that everything worked well Can I connect a garden hose to a laundry tap?
