Novice--Washer and Gas Dryer Installation
Posted by Matt Duchek on January 03, 2004 at 14:42:34:
I recently received a new GE washer/gas dryer pair, but the gift giver did not include installation. I must install the machines, but I have no hookups as of yet. Tapping the water line and running in to the wasther will be no problem, and neither will the dryer vent. But, I must also consider the washer drain and gas line to the dryer. I want the machines to sit next to my current hot water heater, furnace, and main sewer drain pipe in the basement. My questions are: 1.) is it possible to drain the washer directly to the sewer pipe (rather than running a hose to a drain 15' away)--and if so how?, and 2.) what would be the appropriate way to run a gas line to the dryer from the existing line for the furnace and hot water heater? Any help with this would be grealty appreciated.
