Standpipe too low for Cabrio?
I am the frustrated new owner of a Whirlpool Cabrio washer.
Went to install the washer and saw that it states that the height requirement for a wall (or floor) standpipe is at least 39 inches from the, washer. Measured, my standpipe is only 33 inches or so from the ground. It is 2 inches in diameter.
The model # for the washer is WTW5640XW0 (high efficiency top loader) if anyone needs to know.
What kind of problems may I run into with it being too low? Is it something I need to worry about? The standpipe is build into the wall, so I can't just replace it. Could possibly add pipe to it, but my husband and I are not "handy" people and have no idea what we are doing. Also, if it has to do with the hose needing to be at a certain height, not necessarily the drain pipe, could we attach the drain hose to the wall at the 39 inches and leave the drain pipe alone? We are in a rental, so can't do too many alterations and really don't want to!
Any suggestions or feedback as to what could go wrong if we leave it too low is greatly appreciated!!! We want to make sure that it isn't something that will break the washer/void the warranty.
Frustrated --- have a new toy and can't use it yet!
