Hi -- I just bought a house and the seller took the washer and dryer with them...so I thought I'd use this opportunity to rearrange the laundry room for a better use of space.

The washer must have been set up to drain into the concrete wash sink -- as there is no vertical drain pipe in the room. I took out the sink when I installed new flooring, so now there's an opening half way up the main drain pipe where the sink was connected (the faucets are also still connected to the pipes and in the "off" position). Will I be able to somehow add/convert some pipes to allow for my washer's drainage? Or will it be easier to just put the sink back in?

Also, the dryer outlet and vent are on the other side of the room from the water conncetions and drain. I want to install a stackable unit -- so will it be expensive for me to have the outlet and vent moved to the other side of the room? My walls are not drywalled -- so there is easy access to all of the wiring and plumbing. I also thought about getting a ventless dryer to get around the vent issue.

Any thoughts on all this are appreciated.

Thanks!

That's more of a plumbing question than an appliance question. I don't know the answer to that but the following page has some related issues with washer drains.

** will it be expensive for me to have the outlet and vent moved to the other side of the room? **

Again, that is really a question for other specialists. I don't know how much electricians charge wherever you are. Maybe you can find a local general contractor which is a licensed for electrical which can do both. They would be best to give you an estimate on costs.

** I also thought about getting a ventless dryer to get around the vent issue. **

That might be an option but likely more expensive than a regular dryer and getting the services moved. You can see some ventless dryer models at the following link:
