Home Renovation: Washing Machine & Dryer.

I have been doing my laundry elsewhere for some time. Both the washing machine and dryer have not been working. While trying to fix the dryer, I pulled an amazing amount of lint out from around the drum. Fortunately, it never caught fire. Both units are at least 25 years old, so I decided it was time for an upgrade. While in Norway earlier in the year I saw a washing machine & dryer combo that used a lot less water, and did not require an external vent. After some searching I found a direct drive combo from LG. The new unit gets delivered tomorrow, so I need to disconnect and remove the old appliances.
