have a washing machine that I desperately need to hook up but I don't know how

Hello all. My name is Faith. I am a single female attending school. I have been in a recent car accident and my ex just left me disabled and won't help me with anything.. we won't get into him ... I am trying to handle some things on my own but need help. I have very limited resources and can not do alot of manual labor.

Basically.. HELP PLEASE!...LOL! I live in a very old house that has been converted to apartments. I have a washing maching that I desperately need to be able to hook up but I don't know if it is possible..

my downstairs neighbor has one and it DOES LOOK like there MAY HAVE been one in here before... the spot I was going to put it is right next to the Hot water heater..

How do I know if it can be done?... I appreciate anyone that can help..

Pleas joint in and post a thread in the "plumbing' section---a picture of the existing plumbing would help you get the best answers---But if you can't figure out the picture thing--just do the best you can using words---

Faith,Welcome to the Forum
It may be a good idea to be a little more specific (e.g. which city)
in your profile because you may get more location specific information.

Do you have cold and hot water connections in the wall? Hell even if its just cold water and you only run the washing machine on cold it can work. Is there a drain near the area as well. You can rig the drain to a sink, bathtub etc but it is frowned upon by most. There is always a way, get creative, as long as it works and your happy with it
