cloths washer plumbing height ??

I am installing a sub floor into my laundry room to make it level with the rest of the house. the plumbing for the washer is currently at 37 in but after i raise the floor it will be 17 in. Is there a code that says the plumbing for the washer has to be with in a cerrtin height range?

Trap for clotheswasher shall not be roughed in below the floor, and shall not be less than 6 inches or more than 12 inches above the floor.

Standpipe for clotheswasher shall not be less than 18 inches and not more than 30 inches.

That makes the minimum height for the top edge of your standpipe 24" if your trap is roughed in at 6" high. Sounds like your 17" is not going to work.
