Seneca LG Washer/Dryer Combo Install

I recently purchased an LG 24" combo washer/dryer unit. I got it at a good price in barely used condition from a local appliance store. I then realized why they sell "RV" washing machines...they are also 24" wide, but the RV version is 5" shallower!

Determined not to spend twice a much for a Splendid or Dometic machine, I decided to make room for the LG unit.

Here's what I did and I'm quite happy with the results:
1) Moved the drain, trap and vent to the side of the compartment inside the wall instead of to the rear between the machine and the wall. All the ABS parts can be purchased at Lowe's.
2) Moved the electrical outlet and water hook-ups into the rear of the compartment above the machine.
3) Used one of the drawers from the drawer unit that was in the compartment to put one drawer in the compartment above. It provides a place for all the laundry stuff and hides the water hoses, hook-ups and power cords.
4) Used part of the remaining side of the drawer unit to create a top over the drawer.
5) Added a hinged lid to the top at the rear for easy access to the water shut-off for the washing machine.

I spent $100 or so on Pex tools/supplies, a slot cutter for my router and hardware, but spent way less than buying a Splendid or Dometic machine.

With the money I saved I was able to get a top rate pan for under the machine with a reservoir and pump for if it should ever leak. I'm also adding a Honeywell leak detection device.

Have to wait until temps stay above freezing 24/7 to test the water lines then the washer goes in.

I'll post some pictures ASAP.

Thanks all. The wife has me using what's left of the drawer unit to add a shelf in the upper cabinet. I should be able to get that installed after work tomorrow.

I can't wait for it to stay above freezing 24/7. So I can install the washing machine, but also because I'm done with the winter!
