Washing Machine Water Hoses

The hot & cold water hoses on my washer are rusted onto the shut off valve. I've applied penetrating oil but I cannot loosen the hoses. Any ideas?

Very carefully cut the hose fitting without cutting into the valve and peel the hose fitting off the valve.

What John said plus;

Use something slow like a dremel or used hack saw blade. A new blade will be more difficult to use. Cut on opposite sides if you can reach, if not, remove a section and then peel the rest away.

Clean the threads well with a wire brush before re-attaching new hoses. Use stainless hoses and inspect more frequently.
