Thank you, John. I'll try this right now. Update: I tried to tighten up the connections that go into the washing machine to make it stop leaking and now it's leaking more. I couldn't get the turn off valves to budge. I guess I'd have to turn off the all the water supply and move out the washing machine to get to them to blowdry it and try to get it to turn. This is a 1950's house and all the turn off valves are breaking down. The one behind the refrigerator won't work anymore. But why is it leaking more because I tighten the connector to the washing machine? Do you think something is frozen?
turn the washer on fill hot...make hot water run threw the pipe. that will speed up the thaw
Those hoses should be attached to two valves in a recessed washer box. Assuming the leak is at those hose connections as you believe, then you can turn those valves off in the washer box and isolate those hoses from your water system...then when it thaws, it won't flood your garage. If the valves are frozen and won't turn off, use a hair-dryer to thaw them enough so you can close them.
