  • Sewer gas smell

    I recently bought a house and i get the smell of sewer gas from the washer drain.I can't see if there is a trap on the line. It is in the cold side of a wall and is covered with a very dddp layer of foam insulation. I think there must be because i pulled the washer hose out and there is black gook over the bottom 3 or 4 inches.Would the hose being that far down the pipe cause the trap to empty when the washer empties and allow the gas to enter the house. If so would pullint the hose back help' Thanks in advance. fred
