I just purchased an LG washer, model WM3900HWA. The drain hose is not long enough to reach the stand pipe. I have seen this post where the answer is to simply buy a longer drain hose. However, the user manual for this washer says the following:
Do not install the drain hose with the end lower than 29.5 inches (0.7 m) or higher than 96 inches (2.4 m) above the bottom of the washer or more than 60 inches (1.5 m) away from the washer.
How should I interpret the "60 inches away from the washer"? Is that just horizontal distance, or any combination of horizontal and vertical distance? The stand pipe is definitely closer than that, but I've never done anything with plumbing before so I want to make sure there isn't something I'm missing here.
