yes & no. Yes, it should NOT be tight (for the reasons indicated below). NO, it may not be yo9ur drain that is the problem (making it overflow). it is the fact that modern washers pump too fast for older plumbing. my drain was 1000% fine until i got a new washer. it wasted the plumbing at my past house, and i am having the problem at the new one. i have not found a solution yet. maybe i need to make an "overflow tank"
: : My washer has a plastic hose that goes into the "drain" or "pipes" on the wall in my basment. The water should spin out and go through the hose and into the pipe. However, the "clamp" or "grip" that should leave no room for "spillage" isn't working properly. I changed it by getting a rubber hose and two small clamps in an attempt to force the water to go straight into the drainage pipe and not overflow or spill out, but it still isn't working. What should I do?
