Draining clothes washer through a garden hose
Posted by Tom on June 22, 19100 at 13:00:47:
As a stop gap measure, I connected my washing machine drain hose to a garden hose (via a pvc adapter)
and then ran it to a drain where a sink once was. The machine makes it through the wash cycle but then
stops working about half way through the spin/rinse cycle (the timer continues to tick, but nothing else happens).

If I wait about half an hour and turn it on, it finishes the cycle. Can anybody explain what is happening?

Thanks in advance.
