washing machine box's


i am rebuilding my small laundry room. i need to have ALL of the plumbing in the wall. wall cavity can be open behind the machine. the issue = if i use a 3 5/8" wall box, how do i get the WM drain hose from inside the wall cavity into the box ?

The washing machine drain/water line box is mounted to the studs---the washing machine hose is hooked into the hole from the outside---
perhaps I am confused--why would your machine hose be inside of the wall cavity?

there is very little room in front of both machines. i'm talking every 1/2" counts.

i am thinking to not even use a box. i also need to place the suplies in the cavity. are there shut off's that can be screwed to a board ?

something like this would be great, and my wife could work it.

Now I understand---take the box back---a 2" stand pipe and stud mounted shut off valves will do the job.
