Smile 95 WB Washer/Dryer install question

Does anyone have a WB with the basement washer/dryer? Our coach was optioned this way but previous owner removed the unit before we purchased it. I’ve got everything installed except I’m trying to figure out how in the world the drain works? Pic 3 shows the drain circled in red. It’s behind and above the electric grill in bay 3. How does one hook this up to the washer drain? Am I missing pieces somewhere? Thanks in advance!

Would it not work if there was a vertical pipe added, for the washer to drain in to?
I would check to see where that pipe drains. I have seen them drain to the sewer hook up on other brand motor homes, not to the grey tank. You have to be on full hook ups to use the washer.
I just wondered if the vertical pipe was removed.

Because of the "crazy location" above the outlet, I am betting that there was a fitting threaded into that pipe in place of the white plug. That fitting then was reduced to the drain hose size, which was probably pipe clamped on to prevent leaking. There would be water everywhere if not done that way. You will most likely still get some flowback but I don't think that is critical on the washer, because I think it has a check valve. My guess that drain goes to one of your tanks. Just look for where it goes and try to follow it or hook a hose up to it and listen to what you hear.

Okay, I am with Jim and his observations. When I looked at the photo I thought the pipe was on the floor.

I checked the manual and it doesn't address that issue. However, I would think that anyone that has one in a bay, needs to be 100% sure their bay heater works Especially this time of year and for the next 5 months, if they live anywhere north of you.

On my 94 the drain hose is straight connection into a pump that runs to the gray tank. The original wd was wired to the pump which ran when the spin cycle ran.
When I replaced the wd with a new splinde, we could not figure out how to wire into the spin cycle. The new wd are computer controlled. Just hooked direct to the drain pipe bypassing the pump and has worked great. We use the washer running down the road as well as parked. Never had a problem with the drain. I will get a picture when I go to the coach tommorow.
