I have lived in my house for 3 years now with the same washing machine..in the past month my washing machine drain pipe has started to over flow. I do live in the country and drain my kitchen sink and washing machine into the field.
I started with a Drano/hot water. Nope
I have snaked the standpipe. The vent. Dug up the cleanout, and snaked towards the house and away from the house.
Used a water hose with a spray nozzle. In the standpipe, as well as in the clean out. THEN used a pressure washer with a jet tip...ran through the standpipe out to the field (40-45 feet).
Still to no avail.
Every time water was used, water was coming out of the end of the pipe in the field. Water was black and some debris came out...but not enough to clog a pipe. HELP!
I'm at my wits end and on a tight budget being a single (female) home owner. Could it be a collapsed pipe underground? Sidenote: standpipe is correct height and girth.
