I occasionally have a sewer gas smell near my washer. But after I run the washer, the smell will go away for a few days. What could the problem be?


Hi Joe

Is that pex pipe on the right your water supply to the washer?

Your sewer gas smell I believe can be eliminated by putting a P trap in the drain PVC line.

(EDIT)
Where the drain hose from the washer hooks into the PVC pipe is NOT airtight which would allow the sewer gas back into the laundry room!

(EDIT EDIT)
If there is a P-trap in your outflow pipe, the only place left for grey water to collect (and stink) would be between the washer and where the waste hose goes into the drain. We've had to use a little bit of bleach on occasion when we haven't used the washer for a bit.
Hope this helps

My washer is leaking water out of the dispenser area . The hose for the water underneath the dispenser seems to be clogged how do i fix this?


Hi, follow the instruction below to clear the clooged hose.....
  • Pull the washer 2 to 3 feet away from the wall so you have enough room to access the drain pipe.
  • Locate the drain discharge hose where it comes out from the back of the washing machine. Typically it will be a 1 1/2-inch hose and leads to the drain in the floor, wall or laundry tub.
  • Detach the discharge hose from the drain. The hose may be secured by a squeeze clamp or screw clamp or it may just be inserted directly with no clamp. Use pliers for the squeeze clamp, screwdriver for a screw clamp or pull the hose straight up, depending on how it is secured.
  • Insert the pipe snake into the open drain until you feel the clog release. Typically this will be very close to the top rather than several feet down.
  • Check the drain hose section that is attached to the washer. If there is another clogged area, you will be able to see it; snag it with the wire and pull it out.
  • Replace the drain discharge hose into the drain and check all connections to ensure there will be no water escaping.
  • Move the washer back into place. It will now drain properly.

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..

WATER DRAINS


In your manual what does it say as to what height to fix the drain pipe. Try to maintain the height, approx 3 feet or so. The machine pumps the water out OVER the height..... The drain pipe shd not go straight into the drain at floor level.

Doesn't fill


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.
