Washing machine died
My washing machine died mid cycle the other day so there is nasty water sitting inside. What is the easiest way to get it out?

Dip it!:)

Does the area have a floor drain? Is this a basement?

No, its on ground floor in my basements in houston

Shop vac, or small pump that you can attach to a drill. You can also get hand powered pumps.
