In response to Re: Sink Location
The 2" sink drain will plug long before the 4" main will. And it is more likely to plug past the washer connection, than between the sink and washer.

.: Are you referring to the kitchen sink (location noted earlier)whose effluent eventually, but not directly, joins the washer's under the house? I don't think if that sink were to clog, it would affect the washer drain unless the clog worked its way downstream past where the washer's drain enters. A more likely scenerio is that the 4" main clogs at the street, backing everything up, but we'd see it in the shower/toilet/tub before the standpipe. We don't have any other appliance or sink tied into the washer drain.
