Question about Washing Machines
Where the drain hose goes into the plumbing pipe next to the washing machine, water starts coming out out the top of the pipe when the machine is running. The black drain hose hangs down into the white pipe.
We have tried snaking it from inside and from the roof with no luck. any suggestions?
Make the standpipe longer (the black pipe).

try running the snake from the top to the bottom. they ell pressure hose ends that you inser into the pipe on the end of a hose and when you turn the water on it weslls and applies pressure to push out whatever is in there. they cost about 8.00 and you can buy them at lowes or home depot. just tell them what you need and that it screws onto the end of a hose for unclogging backed up drains. im not sure whats its called but they will know
