Misunderstanding 1: Different functional areas are installed with the same type of faucet

An angle valve must be used when all the hot and cold water taps in the house are connected to the water pipe. The purpose is to prevent the water leakage from the faucet from affecting the water in other parts of the home. However, the faucet of the washing machine does not require hot water, so it can be directly connected to the water pipe.

Pour in white vinegar for a while, then open the hot water valve to drain the water.
