Check hoses on washing machine, dishwasher, Ice-maker

Many home appliances have water hoses connecting them to the water supply or drainage system. These hoses can, over time, become damaged or cracked and start leaking. Make sure to check your hoses regularly and replace them with steel-braided lines if needed. Remember to check the connections to the appliances as well which can loosen over time. A leak into your home is not only expensive but can lead to wet floors and falls!
