In response to Re: Drain for washing machine backing up
: The hooked end of the hose for the washing machine is placed into the drain. When washer goes into cycle where water is drained out, it empties some ( only a few seconds ) then starts backing up out of the drain and water runs onto floor. I used wire to run down to unclog whatever, but that did not work. What shall I do?
If the drain isnt blocked and it still backs up the pipe it drains into might be not long enough(it should be 36 inches long).If this dosent fix it post back and Ill see if I can help you.Good luck Mike
