How much does it cost to install a washer dryer hookup?
The price to put in washer and dryer hookups averages between $350 and $600 if they’re placed in an ideal location. If the appliances end up in a spot that’s further from your existing plumbing, you could end up paying anywhere from $700 to $2,000 or more. Washers take a standard 120V outlet.
Can you use a washer without hookups?
With the use of some optional accessories, such as a Y-connector and faucet adapter, a washer dryer combo can be easily connected to your kitchen, bathroom or any other sink. This allows you to use it just about anywhere, without the need for separate water connections.

Can you connect a garden hose to a washing machine?
A garden hose has an interior diameter that is smaller than a washing machine hose, so hooking it up directly you would be risking pump burnout (there would be more friction and work on the machine).
Can a washer and sink share a drain?
If you’re joining a washing machine and kitchen sink on the same drain, you may be able to vent them both with a single vent if they are close enough together. If not, you can connect their separate vents before they tie into the main vent stack.
