Tapping water line and drain from sink for washing machine?


I want to move the washing machine in another room and conveniently(or not) the water lines for the kitchen sink and dishwasher are right there along with the drain. The water lines are only 1/2".

- Is it okay to tap into this for the washing machine?
- Would the facet be weak when the washing machine is on?
- Dishwasher and washing machine on at the same time, would that work going through a 1/2" line?


Thanks.

You should be fine if nothing else is fed by the supplies. The drain should really be at least 2" pipe. Can't tell from the picture. And vented.

Or, buy a HE washer as it'll require less water.
