Wink washer Drain Line problem?

I have a washer in my cellar wich has a 2" pvc drain pipe.It it fairly new plumbing and has a trap before it,and a vent between the stand pipe and the outlet to the main line.The stand pipe is also 2" dia.
water comes out of the top of the stand pipe when it is in the drain cycle.
not alot,but some.....
Any ideas on how to fix this problem?thanks

It would appear that you have a partial clog in the drainline. Washers drains collect a lot of lint from clothes. Try snaking the drainline out or use an enzyme drain cleaner (not caustic). Good luck.
