I've just moved house. My drainage pipe is a lot higher in the new home and the machine is in the basement. The machine is not draining. Is there a maximum height that the drainage hose can be?
Hi my name is ***** ***** I have been in the plumbing field for 20 years. I will be glad to help you today. Each model may have a maximum height it will pump but they are designed to only pump a short distance before exiting into the waste pipe. The maximum height of a washing machine waste pipe is 42" from the floor by the plumbing code.
