washing machine standpipe height


Hi All, In the process of moving laundry from basement to first floor. Without a great deal of work I am 27" from laundry box to trap. Trap will then discharge through concrete wall back into basement and then drop of 4-5 feet. I understand that the 27" is probably not enough but with the drop beyond the trap am I ok?
Thanks in advance for your advice, pros only please.

P trap for a washing machine between 6" and 12" off the floor. Standpipe no less than 18" and no greater than 30"

This is Oregon code.

Thanks. I'm hearing all the same for here in NY, but also hearing a lot about standpipe height of 33-36". Keep in mind the drop I have beyond the trap.

The height has nothing to do with the drop below the trap. It's to keep the water in the washer

Should say in the washing machine manual how tall they recommend.
