About this deal

Quite often there is some nasty sludge in there also and you don’t want that getting everywhere either. Fortunately waste traps for both machines are the same so in this guide we look at how to install a washing machine trap to deal with washing machine or dishwasher waste water. What is a Waste Trap? Next, using a tape measure, measure from the new pipe joint over to where the new standpipe will be positioned and cut a piece of UPVC pipe to length, remembering to measure from inside the collar of the joint where the pipe will butt up to. Tidy up the end with a piece of sandpaper.

One final important point is that the length of waste pipe for both washing machines and dishwashers should not exceed 3 metres in length. This includes the waste hose running from the machine. Do You Have to Install a Waste Trap? As we have mentioned, installing a standpipe to use as an appliance waste is the best solution and can be done fairly easily, as long as you have good access. In this case you can simply drill a hole through the wall and run the appliance waste through it out to the drain or connect to the soil pipe using a strap on boss. If you have a rotatable spigot then you can move this into an upward position to help with that. You may well have a fixed spigot as I do. If this is indeed what you have under your sink then you will need to move the pipe into a position where it feeds down into the spigot at some point.

Tools and Materials Needed for Installing a Waste Trap

To find out more about how waste traps work, see our project here. Types of Waste Trap for Washing Machines and Dishwashers This is one of those jobs you’ve probably never given much thought to until it comes time to install a washing machine in a new house and everything isn’t quite set up the same as it was in the old place. Maybe the waste pipes under the sink are all different, or perhaps you can’t even see anywhere to attach the hose to. Well worry not, we have all bases covered here, so continue on and read our guide. Connecting Washing Machine Waste Pipe

When the washing machine is working it pumps the wastewater out and is more than capable of pumping it uphill, so don’t worry about that. There are 3 types of waste trap that are generally used for appliances, with 2 being used much more regularly than the third. The main types are the standpipe waste trap and the sink and appliance waste. The third fairly uncommonly used type is the self sealing waste trap. Sink and Appliance Waste TrapOne other very important factor to consider when it comes to waste trap installation is where the appliance is to be installed. Pop 2 pipe clips over the pipe and fix them to the wall using 40mm screws and wall plugs, ensuring the pipes totally vertically level using a spirit level. Pop the appliance in position and then position the waste into the standpipe. This will either involve dropping the hose down the standpipe, ensuring that there is at least 100mm between its end and the water in the trap or hooking the hook of the pipe over the top. We always prefer to use solvent weld or compression fittings when it comes to waste pipes because once it is made, it stays together and there is no chance of any leaky joints.
