Hi. Like many people asking for advice here, I am also not a plumber and so any help will be gratefully received. I have just bought a John Lewis washing machine and the waste pipe is different to that on my old machine so a straight swap has not been possible. The position of the machine is just far enough from the outlet to require an extension pipe (washing machine drain hose). This pipe connects to the drain/outlet no problem. However,the new waste pipe does not fit the other end. The new waste pipe has a tapered rubber end (as if it is designed to slot vertically into a larger output pipe/drain). I bought a plastic 'two way connector' which slots neatly into the waste pipe but is too small for the extension pipe. What do I do???
