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?

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