In response to Re: Laundry waste line design flaw??

: : I just finished a new laundry room. After two uses of the washer, the drain backs up. It might be clogged, but I would be surprised if it is. When I installed the 2" drain pipe, I avoided going through the foundation by using a series of long 90 ells that drop through the wall, outside and then below grade. Could this be my problem? there are 5 ells going down in a stairstep fashion.

I would doubt that after two washings, that the pipe would have collected anything that could clog it. Did you vent the drain after the p-trap?
