Just redoing the waste at home, I have now got a new connection going straight into the sink 'U' bend. The hose has a rubber end which appears to fit tightly over the stepped waste adaptor, is this adequate? Or do I need a jubilee clip to stop it coming off under pressure?

Ours have always just pushed on & never leaked.

Waste water has no pressure as such, but there's often a spring clip provided which you may as well use.

Belt and braces sounds good when dealing with waste water in wooden cabinets. I do the same.

Hold the pipe over the sink, then turn the washing machine on, feel the kick back on the pipe when the water starts spurting out.

Let me know if you're still considering not putting a clip on it.

I always put a jubilee clip over them for peace of mind. Washing Machine waste pumps have a fair bit of force on them.

Ours just hangs into the sink until the house is replumbed. It doesn't so much as flinch when the waste water exits. confused

& ours was happliy in place for 7 years with no clip. If it's tight as a ducks ass to get it on it won't come off. Use common sense, if it pushes on easily it can come off easily! Oh, & don't overtighten any clips or ironically it will leak!

Possibly depends on the washing machine.. Mine has got 'a bit of a kick'

Put a clip on if it does leak you will only find out when it has flooded your room and ruined the cabinet.

Unless you've got half a brain and test all plumbing connections you've made before thinking you've finished.

For the record, I use the little spring clip that comes with the waste, nothing more.

Mine didn't come with a clip, but the fit onto the u-bend inlet was pretty poor so I put a jubilee clip on it. It would cause a bit of a mess if it fell off!

I usually smear a bit of silicon onto the stepped connector before putting the hose on (no jubilee clip). It's always been ok.

If it's on the OUTSIDE of the hose it never gets wet tongue out

And remember, if it does fall off and drop to the ground, and your washing machine is still on rinse, and you are out for the day, it will continue to pour water into the washing machine, and thus out of the hose, until the floor/door/walls collapse and the neighbours call 999.

The only thing that stops water running out of your machine is that hose held up above a certain height. There is no stop valve on the outlet, just a level switch inside the machine that tells the machine to stop filling when it reaches a certain height. If your drain hose falls down, the water will never reach that certain height, hence it keeps flowing and the floor/wall/door collapsing. biggrin

There are two issues there. One is the connection to the waste; the other is the loop jobbie screwed to the wall. You're assuming the whole caboodle comes detached I think.

So - a WM with the drain hose on the floor will keep running for ever? That seems a bit of a design oversight.
