It goes out of the washer (red line) hangs down, then up to the pipe that comes out of the wall (red line) which is pretty tall off of an elbow trap at the bottom of the wall.

The water will back up until it spews out the top of the white pipe that the washer drain is going into.

There is never a problem with the trap, or anything, there is never a piece of anything anywhere, until I go under the house and clear out the pipe. I never see anything there either, but it flows after I've done that.

There is no cleanable filter at the washer! WTH is with that? Every washer I have ever seen had a filter you cleaned out before each wash, WTH is with this newer crap that wouldn't have a filter to capture this stuff?
