Thanks for the replys.
I have re confirmed that it is the correct part # , Part #: DC67-00265A
SUPPORTED MODELS .......WF218ANW,
According to Sears and Samsung support, this is the part for the bottom of the detergent box that connects to the drum.
Now, this new part doesn't even resemble the damaged part, which has a part number : DC67 - 00380A , which does not show up as a compatible part number for the machine that I have.
I might have a Frankenstein unit, since buying at a resell shop, and will exchange the return the new hose for similar one that was pulled off / defective, despite the incorrect compatible model numbers.
