2nd floor laundry washer pan question, stacking, drain

Posted by nfc27 (My Page) on

Have a washer pan and drain under stacked front loader washer and dryer. Have to replace w/d and the delivery will stack w/d but it has to be left "out" of the pan so the plumber can reconnect the gas hook-up. Imagine an alcove situation with w/d stacked in it.

Have been thinking about slicing off front of drip pan. Anyone done that?

Then ? If should glue problem with pan is it cuts off water drain from rest of room. Iif it overflows or water goes outside pan drain is worthless.

Anyone have thoughts on this?

Photographs? Are you adding a gas line so this is the issue with the connection? I would not cut the pan as you asking for a source of failure along the glue line.

Not adding gas line but replacing existing w/d. In Pennsylvania have to have gas dryer hook up done by plumber with all new parts.
