Okay, you don't have room to lever the washing machine up - how about this:
You mount a block an tackle to a joist and winch up the washer. Then you can
work under it until everything's just so.
Lower the machine back down to the repaired drain pan.
You can leave the mounting hook in the ceiling to be used as a
clothes-hanger for things that have to air dry.
buffalo ny: definitely buy a $12 water alarm with low battery alert.
home depot, lowe's, or a sensor add-ons to home alarm systems.
maybe buy a can of automotive bondo to form part of the support.
also there is a new pair of hot/cold washing machine supply hoses that
may also help in specific cases by shutting themselves off (in
specific failures of the inlets). see the package at the store.
also, spend some time watching the various cycles of the washer
drainage speed for backups or blockages of drain, maintain the
washtub laundry sink drain by removing lint with long needlenose
pliers kept there permanently, remember some new washing machines
really throw water out faster than old style ones.
