    For shits and giggles, you should find out if the guy who actually did the work is a licensed plumber. Here in Ct you can get that info from the Dept of Consumer Protection web site.

    A kinked drain hose would slow down the washer's draining, but NOT cause an overflow. If the inspector approved that 1 1/2" intermediate pipe, then he was not any better than the "plumber" who did it, which is often the case when inspectors are "90 day wonders" who "know everything after a 3 months training".

    I find it ironic that your state will not allow DIY plumbing, but will approve a job like this.
