The washer and dryer have been in place for over two years. The washer has leaked a bit for the whole time, minus a week or two after the last tub replacement. (brake greased- thanks for the tip!!!) We've been managing the small amount of water that makes it way out during each load via a towel that is replaced every so often. It was a small enough leak that the towel would generally dry itself out between loads, but without the towel the water would go under the wall and had started to ruin the wood-above-slab flooring on the other side of the wall.

Tonight, I took the washer apart to epoxy the outer tub and decided to go ahead and disconnect everything and clean out under it-- I could tell it was getting pretty bad.

As it turned out, it was *real* bad!! I went ahead and disconnected the dryer (yes, I did turn off the gas outlet before unhooking the hose!) and cleaned it all up. Took about 40 minutes to get it all cleaned up. a few socks, a stocking cap, a whole piece of bread and years of dirt and lint were found. Not a lot of lint- the dryer vent is taped up pretty good with that expensive foil HVAC-guy tape.

Anyway, wish I had gotten a pic of the before, but I'm sure you've all seen worse. I'm thankful it was *my* mess and not someone else's! I don't know how you guys can do this professionally, I know there are people messier than we are!!


Namaste,


Jeremy
