Your instruction step 2 says, "Our tray’s drain does not connect directly to the house’s waste line. It’s an indirect line that dumps into a laundry tub, floor drain or even outside through the wall." However, I don't see how the tray could drain into a laundry tub as it should be higher than the tub.

Your article regarding leaking of a washing machine just doesn't fit our situation. Our utility room is on the first floor without a floor drain. We do have a recessed laundry box, but nowhere to vent a hose from an overflow tray. The dryer is closest to the outside wall because of venting the gas dryer out the wall. We'd have to run a hose from the washer, past the dryer and out the wall. What will stop cold air or bugs or critters from coming into the house thru the hose? There must be a better way.
