Question DetailsAsked on 7/31/2013

Can a washer and dryer be moved to another room in a house that is set on a slab?

My washer and dryer are currently in my kitchen and I would like to move them to a small room that is across the hall from the water heater and furnace room. I don't know how the drainage pipes line up in order to tap into them from the new location.

As you guessed, that factor controls your cost. If pipes are readily accessed without ceiling or wall damage, could run as low as about $200-300. If hard to get at, or have to go down through walls or open up ceilings to get at them, could run into $300-600 range. This assumes the floor you are talking about is wood above-grade, not a concrete slab. If concrete slab, could be from $500 ot exceeding $1000 by the time all is said and done, depending on where the sewer pipes are.

Search the List (in green banner bar) for local plumbers, and check ratings and reviews. He may also tell you that you need a new outlet there if the existing is not adequate - an electrician could probably do that for $100-200. And of course, if they have to tear holes in walls or ceilings you will be looking at another $200-400 in repairs and painting, if you can't do this yourself.
