What might be a problem with my washer box

Our 16year old Maytag just died and we had buy LG washer/dryer. But there was issue with delivery and few of other issues from Costco, we decided to return and repurchased through Lowes.

When LG was picked up, they try to shut down both cold and hot faucets, but there was drops continued from both faucets. I had to let driver to take appliances and leave because I didn't think there will be problem having washer connection box. But last night, I was cleaning/moving furniture from rec room and found wetness on carpet. Meantime, I found 2 hoses from garage and connected both faucet to make sure any drip will go into bucket not washer connection box. Since this change, I don't see any water on floor.

The washer was picked up about 4-5days ago and I do see about 1 cup of water collected in bucket since hose connection.

Tomorrow, we have new washer/dryer delivery and quick drying of floor, we are able to install hardwood floor today in rec room. But I don't want any water issue later because we are putting expensive hardwood floor into rec room.

Sorry for long story. Anyway, anyone had this type of problem? What is causing this issue?

Look forward to your help.:smile:

The washer box was meant, washer connection box. This is box with both cold and hot water faucet is located and has big hole in the center where any drip happens from either faucet will go into instead of flooding the floor. The rec room is right behind this faucet.

I do understand, this washer connection box is supposedly collect any extra drip from faucet and safely drain from the area.

So, I don't know, what is real problem? I do agree extra drip should be repaired when not in use.
I don't know, if it's normal. But there's about 1 inch diameter hole in the center of the box and small 1/8-1/4" hole right under the faucet each side. Is it normal to have two small holes under faucet?

I am going to check out new washer connection box to see if we need to replace this.
