Washer machine drains from a black hose into...
The utility sink, I have an older model front loader and I love it. 4 months ago the Router guy was here I had a jam from the kitchen garbage disposal didn't know on a well you don't use them. He noticed that all the garbage from the washer machine was dumping into the sink, I have dogs so a lot of dog hair. Then its the normal lint and crap. He suggested one product and clueless and said to tie up pantyhose. OK..few months later I am buying them because I won't! So, what do I put on this hose to catch the crap.Other than me buying stock in the eggs again!:eek:
I did notice that it drains better and I no longer have that mildew smell when you leave a front loader off for a few days.

It gets relaced every 3 months or so. You should be able to get it at any supermarket in the laundry isle. It looks like this:
