My washing machine drain is backing up and spilling water onto the floor. I have snaked, foamed, and used a bladder. Most of the water goes through, but there is always a backup and spillover. The house is 33 years old and has at least 2" cast iron pipe. When draining, water will rise in our sink which is 8' away from the washer.
