QUESTION FROM Jessica

How do I connect the washer machine hose to the utility basin?

ANSWER FROM HOME-WIZARD

Dear Jessica:

I assume your question about "connecting your washing machine to your utility basin", is regarding the waste water hose from your washer.

The waste water hose from your washer should connect to the U-bend trap under your utility basin. It should connect on the side of the "U" in the U-bend that is closest to the drain at the bottom of your utility basin.

Note that the hose coming from your washer should be fixed in position so that it is 3-4 inches higher than the connection to the U-bend, before it goes down to your washer. If not, dirty water going down the drain of your utility basin can flow into your washing machine and fill up your washing machine tub.

Hope this is helpful.
