== == The washing machine outlet should be ground fault protected on 12-2 wire. The 30 amp dryer circuit should be on 10-3 wire with a ground. <><><> Laundry receptacle outlet for washer, 12/2 with ground yes! GFCI required if receptacle is within 6 feet of sink or duplex receptacle rather than single receptacle [but a GFCI isn't a bad idea anyway...

Dryer, 10/3 with ground and 4-wire outlet and cord set connection at dryer location! NO NEUTRAL BONDING LINK!

1) NEC requires a disconnecting means [plug and receptacle works] if equipment [dryer] is not within sight of the power source [in this case, if the panel is in the garage]

2) You were never allowed to use the ground wire to carry neutral current, so you need an insulated white or grey neutral [this means three wire]

3] You are not longer allowed to use the neutral jumper at the terminal in the dryer for a chassis ground [with certain limited exceptions - existing ungrounded three wire cable and new dryer] Ground wire goes to chassis. <><><>

As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed.

Before you do any work yourself,

on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances,

always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.

Sump Pump Installation Tip?

A sump pump is a device installed in a basement to pump water out when rain or a broken water pipe causes flooding. The pump is installed in a hole in the basement floor. The best tip for installation is careful planning of the pump and the drain pipe. Use the correct liner for the sump hole, and use the correct size PVC pipe for the drain. Carefully map the drain path so water is carried out of the basement using minimum power. Once outside the basement, water should drain away from the house. Dry fit all the pipes before cementing.
