George Morco's new home had all kinds of problems. On his huge laundry list was this repair. He had purchased a new washing machine and dryer and the water spigot was leaking all over the freshly painted laundry room.
This post shows the seven steps on replacing a washing machine spigot.
Step 1: Fig.1 and fig.2 shows the old washing machine cold water spigot from different angles.

Step 4: Now on the copper pipe there will be a brass nut held in by a brass ferrule.
Step 5: Fig.5 shows the use of a compression sleeve puller to remove the brass ferrule on the copper pipe.

Step 6: Recheck the faucet and check for leaks. If there are no leaks go back to the main and turn on the water all the way.
Step 7: If there is a leak, use both crescent wrenches and apply more pressure on both the nut and the faucet. Recheck for leaks. Stop when there is no more leaks from the new faucet. Now the spigot is ready to be used. For more examples on how to use the compression sleeve click here.
