Washing machine problem (by Pat [WA]) Posted on: Feb 28, 2021 9:25 AM
Message:

We have a new washing machine and when the water is draining out of the tub it backs up at the point where the washer drain pipe goes into the drain pipe and floods the floor. --107.77.xxx.xx

You probably have the washing machine’s drain hose pushed too far down into the drain pipe. There needs to be an air gap between it and the P-trap. --73.12.xx.xx

Other ideas.

Common for the first indication of a small sewer line blockage to be at the washing machine. Since it dumps a lot of water fast.

Could also be older house with a smaller drain. Some newer machines dump water faster. Should be 2" or at least 1 1/2" pipe. Have seen some older homes with smaller sizes. --73.40.xx.xx

Have the drain line snaked out. --172.56.xx.x

Your older washing machine had a smaller discharge rate, gallons per minute. Your new machine drains faster so the drain can't handle the volume. You either can increase the drain capability or restrict the output of the discharge hose from the washer.

You can try this after you snake out the line to insure full drainage. --47.155.xx.xxx

The newer washers have a much bigger pump.

You used to able to drop that j pipe off the washer into the 2"galvanised pipe or even 1 1/2 pvc. With out a sealed joint for the unit already was plumbed with a p trap

I am just gueesing here. with the intel you have provided.

Check the p trap and make a solid connection to the drain pipe

The last one i did was a new front load washer and took the j hook used normal compression washers and adapted it to the pipes in the existing structure --207.200.xxx.xx

Thank you all for your suggestions. The house is 80 years old and sewer line does need to be snaked out. Will try other things too. --107.77.xxx.xx

Just had this happen. Had a trusted plumber come & snaked out - line was full of lint. Previous plumber tried 2x & couldn't find anything (my trusted plumber says the previous one probably didn't have the right equipment). --70.184.xxx.xx
