No outlet pipes for new washing machine

Rate this topic


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.

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