I have a bad habit of leaving a load of laundry in the machine for hours at a time, sometimes even overnight without checking on it. Luckily I was doing my wife’s laundry the time our machine decided to leak all of the water out of the bottom. Lucky in that I actually checked on it in a somewhat timely fashion. Timely as in it only had a couple of hours to flood the laundry room and out onto the porch. Ooops.
