How far will a washer pump up water?

I have a washer in the basement and would like it to drain outside, which is approximately 7 feet from the bottom of the washer to the top of my foundation. Will the washer pump the water that far?

Yes, it should pump it that far, but you may shorten the life of the motor by doing so.

Thats only adding about 4 foot since it already pumps it about 3 ft to the standard drain hight.

Specs for drain pump model LXR6232EQ0


It wont pump that high, well it will BUT when the pump stops it will drain all the water back into the machine or it will give you an error that it is not able to drain fast enough. The only thing that might work it the installation of a check valve.

Water drains out as fast as it fills........but not all of the time top load Whirlpool


There is a chance the drain hose has buildup within it and needs to be cleared out. This will take about an hour.

Steps:
  • 1- Unplug the electrical cord on the washer from the wall outlet.
  • 2
  • Unfasten the hot and cold water hoses from the water lines after you shut off the water valves. Use a pair of slip-joint pliers to turn the hose fittings counterclockwise to remove them.

  • 3 Pull the washing machine far enough away from the wall so you can comfortably work on the rear of the machine.

  • 4 Locate the access panel toward the bottom left side of the back of the washer. Use a nut driver to remove the nuts that secure the access panel, and remove it.

  • 5 Find the water pump, which will have two hoses attached to it.

  • 6 Identify which hose is the drain hose by tracing it to the outside of the machine. The pump may also be labeled "Inlet" and "Outlet." The drain hose is attached to the outlet.

  • 7 Squeeze the clamp that secures the end of the drain hose to the water pump, using a pair of slip-joint pliers. Remove the end of the hose from the pump.

  • 8 Insert a plumbing snake into the end of the hose and twist the snake as you feed it through the hose. After approximately 10 feet of the snake is fed through the drain hose, you should see the snake and the clog come out the other end of the hose.

  • 9 Reattach the drain hose to the water pump and replace the access panel. Reconnect the water hoses and turn on the water valves. Push the washer back against the wall and plug in the electrical cord.

  • Hope this helps!

    How high can I pump up to a drain.


    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.

    How high can the outlet hose from a Kenmore Series 90 washing maching pump. Location is in basement with not drain but could get to basement window and then to drain. Window approx. 3 feet from top of...


    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..

    Cannot get to drain washer if the hose needs to go up into ceiling to get to septic pipes


    usually the outlet and the pump is capable of pumping out at the maximum high of 3-4 feet from the drain. if any higher than that, you need to add a pump in line.

    Washing Machine does not drain all the water


    Hello nsukiwa.
    Welcome,

    What is the model number?????????????????????
    As I am working blindly for you!
    Here are some ideas, until I have the model number.

    You said, your washer is a Hotpoint type. When emptying the water it never finishes all the water. You have to throw the drain pipe on the floor to drain it dry.

    I'm searching for answers to your problem with these questions!!
    1. How long is the drain pipe and does it have to pump up higher than the machine to reach the drain?
    As if it is in the basement and the drain pipe above it?
    In this case you would need an external pump with some machines!

    2. Is the water visible in the bottom of the machine when the load is done?
    Or do you just detect some water left in the hose?
    There usually is some water left in the hose, but it is not supposed to be visable in the machines tub.

    3. I have a Speed Queen washer because this machine can pump the water up above the washer for 7 feet straight up to the drain above!
    Most machines are not capable to do this!

    I am awaiting your answersHuuum

    Installing a Washer in basement


    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).
