plumbing a clothes washer.
 
I'm going to in a clothes washer on the ground floor of my house, I was curious what is the code in Iowa?

As far as what? Plumbing wiring, location?

Here's a link to check out. Best to check with your local municipality building inspector for your area, he/she should know.

Are they in the basement now? If so could I suggest leaving them there?

Not sure of Iowa- probably need a 2" drain, 2" trap arm and a 1.5" vent. Also 1/2" H&C water supplies

Local code might also call for a floor drain----every town around here does.
