No outlet pipes for new washing machine

Recommended Posts

I've recently moved into a new flat and bought a washing machine. Come to install it, and there's nowhere for the outlet pipe to go. It's in a kitchen with a section of space for the washing machine where the hot/cold inlets are, but nowhere for the outlet. Under the sink there's a pipe where I guess it could go but no way for it to reach. I appreciate it's difficult to suggest anything without seeing it but does anyone have any suggestions? I've no idea what to do.

Hello. It’s rare these days for a washing machine to be plumbed in the old way using a stand pipe. They tend to be plumbed into the u-bend under the sink. 

You could always get a plumber to install a standpipe but fitting a drain hose extension or replacing the drain hose with a longer one may be the easiest and cheapest way.

How does the pipe normally extend to get under the sink? I can't see a way of doing it that wouldn't mean just having the sink cupboard permanently open. There's nowhere to feed the pipe through to get it to the sink.

You have to drill a hole in the side of the cupboard panel or pass it under or round the back.
