Check outlet hose for kinks or restrictions. Make sure the outlet hose is free to expel water at full volume. Make sure the outlet hose is not mounted to high. Check pump impellor has all it's vanes intact. Check for coins in all hoses & pump.
no higher than the manufacture drain hose can reach ...no donot plum directly to pipe !!! yes if must into a utility making sure pump hose goosneck and end of drain hose never gets submerged under water cause water to siphon back into washer....
Several possible causes of a top load washer not fully draining.
a.) Kinked or obstructed drain hose
b.) New drain outlet is too high and the pump is not powerful enough to fully drain the washer
c.) Failing pump motor, that does not fully drain the washer.

I have the same question....since I own a cabin with no basement floor drains. I have to pump my washer discharge to a main level drain.
To check the elevation needed, hook a garden hose to the discharge line and, after running the discharge end outside, raise or elevate the line using a line and tree branch to determine the height at which pump discharge quits. 33 feet equals appoximately 1 atmos or 14.7 psig.
The pump should be able to move waste water 3 feet above the washing machine but if that fails, then you could always buy a sewage ejector set up ( plastic barrell with internal pump and water level sensor) . Those have a highjer pupm head pressure and would be able to move water up a column further than a washing machine pump. IN all probability, you will be ok at 7 - 9 feet from floor.
Hope that helps..
The top of the drain pipe that the washing machine drains in to should be about 3 feet off the ground. If the sewer pipe is higher than that you can either get a longer hose, or drain it into a sump with a sump pump that pumps it into the sewer pipe. If you don't have a sump, first try the longer hose and make sure it drains to a point higher than the sewer pipe (that would be the easiest) or cut a hole in your floor and put in a sump and sump pump (the most difficult).
Is your outlet pipe at the required height behind the machine? Your outlet pipe should be approx 3 feet high behind your machine, or the water would just flow out. The pump in your machine pumps the water OVER this height. Check this out.
