Help! Hose cap fell into washing machine drain pipe

Posted by marti8a (My Page) on

The drain in the wall behind the washer. We were moving the washer & one of the faucets doesn't turn off well so dh was going to put a cap on it. He didn't think to stop up the drain first and the cap fell down into the pipe. Is there any way to get that out, short of tearing out the wall?

Never mind, he got it. Redneck ingenuity.
