ID:	10998i heard a loud banging noise on my washer and opened it up to find a plastic tube hanging from the back of the tub (picture attached); the tube is banging against the both of the machine during the agitation and spin cycles. Not sure how to reattach or if it is broken. The back of the washer does not seem to be nearly as accessible as the front. Any advice as to what to do next would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi,

    Try tightening up the wire tie or wrap some tape around the over flow hose and black metal frame to hold the over flow hose still.

    Default attaching overflow tube to flange/tub on GE washer

    Thanks Jeff!

    I removed the top of the washer and then inadvertently pushed the flange into the tub hole. After i fished the flange out i reconnected it as shown in the picture. However, i am not sure where that other end of the flange is supposed to be. Do i just push it into the hole of the tub before putting the flange in place? Please let me know if i am not describing the problem clearly. much appreciated to any one who can help!

    The plastic hose just pushes in and the rubber grommet goes through the tank and twists to lock into place.

    Ok. The most confusing thing to me was what to do with that other half of the grommet, the connected piece that fits like a cover. does that piece simply hang inside the hole (in the tub)? thanks again!

    The two 1/2 of the rubber grommet are pressed ( snap ) together and go into place from the inside of the tub ( between the wash and holding tanks ) and go through the tank to the plastic hose.....unless I am reading your question wrong.
