Washer drain overflow


Put a glue together trap there. The removeable ones come loose over time due to getting hot/cold and hot/cold and hot/cold.

Then cut a clean-out into the vent just above where the trap arm connects. Now you can snake the trap to the drain, AND open the cleanout and clean down to the main.
