Ye Ole Siphon Effect.....

My dad was in the appliance business for years. Fill the tub with water and while the water pump is not engaged lay the drain hose on the floor. Get a BIG mop though, because the water will siphon out of the tub. In other words, the hose end has to be at "X" height above the floor to prevent this effect.
