By code.probably not.. but if you aren't concerned about draining waste water outside.. it will work.. the idea of at least one bend is to keep water in the line as a trap to keep sewer gas from getting back into your house.. Also.. if you run the line without an air trap up high.. the water that remains inside the dishwasher will evaporate out and that's no t good for seals inside it.. I personally wouldn't do it but it is your call... Good luck

Septic vs washout tub?


Waste water from the washer is not pumped out but rather is gravity fed down the drain. You cannot drain the water up higher than the washing machine's drain outlet. You would have to cut into the drain pipe - below the level of your washer's drain outlet - and put in a T that will tie into the drain pipe and allow for some type of connection to be made from your washer's drain hose.

Washer tries to fill, but water goes straight out the drain.


Either washer drain hose is too far down drain pipe, or there is a airtight seal where drain hose and house drain meet. Either would cause siphon effect.

Water goes in then straight out of the waste pipe


The waste pipe is probably too low, this is letting the water syphon out.
Try lifting the outlet pipe higher up, this should solve the prob.
There is a line on the back of the washer, which incates the min hieght for drain outlet.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Electrolux dishwasher won't drain. Not a clog in the outlet hose or drain pipe.


The drain hose on a washing machinemag-glass_10x10.gif connects the drain pump to a stand pipe, a U-pipe under the sink, or another place for draining dirty water into the sewer. If your washer won't drain properly, the problem is sometimes an object blocking the drain hose, like a pair of underpants, a child's sock, or pieces of something that broke up in the washer.
  1. Unplug the washer and put the plug on top of the machine to keep it out of any spilled water.
  2. Step 2 Take any wet clothes out of the washer and bail the water out of the drum with the bucket. The washer may be too heavy to move if it's full of water and wet clothing.
  3. Step 3 Pull the washer out from the wall enough for you to get behind it.
  4. Step 4 Remove the plate from the back of the washer by taking out all the screws. Different brands and models of washers vary in how many screws hold on the back plate, and not all models require removing the plate to get to the pump where the hose is attached.
  5. Step 5 Locate the drain hose. Of the three hoses coming out of the back of the washer, the drain hose is the largest in diameter and is attached to a drain pipe instead of a faucet.
  6. Step 6 Check the drain hose for kinks and bends. These are often the cause of a blocked or slow-running drain hose.
  7. Step 7 Remove the drain hose from the washer by detaching it from the drain pump. You will need a screwdriver or a slide-lock wrench to open the clasp that holds the hose to the pump, depending on what type of clasp it is.
  8. Step 8 Keep the bucket nearby to catch any water that comes out of the drain pump when you remove the hose.
  9. Step 9 Remove the other end of the house from the pipe it drains into.
  10. Step 10 Bend the clothes hanger open so you can use it to poke inside the hose. Push or pull out the material that's causing the blockage.
  11. Step 11 Replace the hose and run the washer to check if it's clear.

Yes, it is a siphon problem.
Check the hose where it goes through the wall. It may be pinched and cutting off air.
If air cannot enter the hose it will siphon. If the hose is too low it will siphon.
