I have a blockage in the waste pipe which takes water from my sink, dishwasher and then washing machine before entering the cast iron soil pipe. The blockage seems to be in the last stage of the run between the washine machine outlet and soil pipe (see pics) I was going to dissassemble the section, clear the blockage, and then put it back as it was but have read that a washing machine should have a trap before entering the soil pipe. Is this true? If so what's the best way with this present configuration? Leave the washing machine outlet as is and put a P trap in the section between it and the soil pipe?

Washing machines should have a dedicated waste like this

The reason washing machines should have their own dedicated waste (as wine~O) shows is because they also pump out lint from the washing, this gets mixed with old soap and can "set" if it catches on anything. I would guess that is what has happened to you.

Thanks very much for the information. Could I not simply put a running P trap between the present washing machine outlet and the soil pipe? Or if I get a standpipe trap can I connect it to the waste existing pipe going into the soil pipe? I don't want to make a separate connection to the soil pipe if I can help it.

Thanks very much for your advice.

Do you mean connect a standpipe there or an inline trap? The top of the existing hose attachment (where your arrow points) is 61cm above the floor and the height to the underside of the counter is only 88cm so I wouldn't have room to put a standpipe unless I had a very short inlet pipe (risky?)or a normal length inlet pipe with a return pipe from the trap almost as high as the inlet pipe (possible?)

Ideally the whole waste pipe to the soil pipe would be lower but I am trying to avoid boring another hole into the old iron soil pipe.

Would an inline trap be worth putting there and would it need a vent?

Thanks for your time. Very much appreciated.
