 how to select drain pan given the different dimensions of the washer and the pedestal?
Author: Nurit (MA)

I've ordered the LG WM6700HBA washer, and I'm confused what the dimensions of the drain pan need to be. (I do not have a floor drain) The washer pedestal is 27" x 28" but the washer itself is 27" x 33 1/4". Can you please let me know how big the drain pan needs to be? I don't understand from where washers would leak.

I also have space constraints in that I have a 57 5/8" wide space to fit both 27" laundry machines.

here are the specs for the washer:

thanks for any advice you may have!

You will need a pan with a fold down front if the pedestal has a drawer
You will want to go by the measurements of the pedestal

What floor is the washer located, by code you may not need a pan
Anything that holds or accepts liquid can eventually leak

If need be a metal fabrication shop van make you you any size pan you want
