Question about waste pipe when installing a washing machine

Post by farfaraway » Fri Dec 01, 2017 7:30 am

I am moving to a new apartment and I need to install my washing machine. I am not sure if what I am using is the correct waste pipe (the lower pipe in the photo)

Thanks.

You are using it right. That little nipple lets air in so it doesn't siphon you washer dry.

You might want to connect a hose clamp on it though, the washing machine has the tendency to force the water out under some pressure (if the pump is in good condition) and to prevent your whole bathroom (or other area where your washing machine is located) to flood, with all expensive consequences for you because the hose popped off under pressure, it might be wise to clamp it.
