Washing machine to main line


I had a washing machine on other side of house that was running into a drywell. The drywell always get clogged and causes headaches. House is on a slab and can't dig up house. Ran PVC underground along side and in front of home to the main line. Tapped into main line and seems to drain fine. The line from washing machine to the main has no vent.. Is it possible to just use p-trap without vent?

I can glue pipe so I'm now a plumber.... Would you hire me to fix your car I can turn a wrench also. I also can do brain surgery I have a big drill and rubber gloves....

The answer is by code it should be vented but if your good with the smell of sewer I'm good I can't smell it here.

Robv81- Previous post deleted-- You can have an unvented trap- however, it is not legal, will not function right. Your inspector would catch that.

Could I use one of those automatic vents instead of running a vent stack through the roof?

Not in Ohio. You need to call your local building department and ask.

I'm impressed Javiles looks like your running a honest company. I hated it when I worked for some of the not so honest. I always ended up leaving for other opportunities.
