Hi! Sorry we are first time buyers! So May be a stupid question! The water hose for our new washing machine doesn’t fit the water inlet? (Photos attached). It screws on but not all the way, and if I open the valve it sprays water everywhere. Do I need a connector or something? Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated!

They look like standard appliance valves, with an adapter screwed on (black bit).

If you add a pic showing the back of the adapter/opposite end of the valve to the 15mm compression, we should be able to confirm. Or just get a spanner/grips and remove the black adapter and the hose should connect correctly.
