In response to Re: washer-dryer hook-ups in a new condo

I've seen that situation in the Seattle area, where the washer drain was plumbed in with 1.5" pipe off of other plumbing.
When the units were repiped with a permit, the inspector didn't allow the washers to be connected until the drains were brought up to code. Terry

: If it is working then I see no problem. The only thing that can happen in the future is the normal washer problems, i.e., drain or washer overflow, broken water hoses, etc., and none of that has anything, or very little, to do with the installation. hj

: : I am thinking of purchasing a condo where the previous owner has installed a washer/dryer hookup in the guest closet. He has a small combined unit sitting there right now which he says is working fine. Is this considered a "minor improvement" in the place, or is this something I should ask to see permits for, and make sure is done up to code, etc.? What should I look out for to make sure it won't give me trouble in the future?
