Hook Up The Drain Line

The next step to installing a washing machine is to hook up the drain line. Sometimes you will have to hook up the drain connection on the back of the machine with a hose clamp and other times they are already installed. If yours is ready to go just push it into the drain line standpipe and you are good to go. The drain line may have a barbed end on it to make sure it does not easily come out of the standpipe or just a sharp hook shape that fits into the drain.
