replacing washer drain pipe


i see on the side of the cast bell it is stamped 2 so the cast is for a 2 " so lets start by asking for a pic of trap
1 what is pipe length coming out of trap to wash hose
2 the length from trap to cast bell
3 the outside width of the galvanized pipe that is coming out of cast bell

Ok I'm sorry I'm no plumber and I hope you can bear with me. Yes it is a 2 inch leading to the main pipe bit if I'm not mistaking its a one and half inch at the elbow going into the floor. Where would the trap be located at all I seen was the big pipe it's connected to goes straight thru the ground. Thanks for replying by the way

the trap should be located near where the wash hose goes into pipe if you do not see one take a farther back pic so we can see more of pipe and where wash hose goes into pipe

That could be the problem then I am not at home to take a picture but in a sec I can get on my laptop and draw a mock up of how it looks on paint but pretty much its about 6 foot long straight pipe 1 and a half inch maybe 2 I was only going on what I was told. Then a 70 degrees elbow I think and a pipe that extends from as far as the house into that big pipe in the picture maybe 20 feet or a little shorter

where the wash hose goes into pipe is it sealed closed if it does not have a trap and it is not sealed it would be rare not to smell sewer gas occasionally

I have never smelled sewage but I have never looked for it either. So your saying I need to add a trap to it to fix the problem

And no its not sealed either

About how much would a trap cost and is that something I can do myself I don't have 500 noless 1000 to shell out to have professionals do it. But I tend to think I am smart enough to do some things on my own haha
