Is it cross threaded? Try taking it off and putting it on again with a smear of vaseline. Otherwise, if very small leak, bind it up with plumber's tape until someone can fix it (nb, this is v short term solution).

i found some plumbers tape and used that.

i noticed that the blokes that installed the machine last week didn't change the hose and used the one already on there hmm paid for that service too

Jesus, if it's leaking a week after it has been professionally installed, I'd get them back out again. Hope the tape does the job in the meantime.
