Only issue I can see is where the makeup air comes from. The washer doesn't matter, but if the dryer, furnace, and water heater all turn on at the same time, they each need air input. Putting everything in one room can cause an issue where it's easier to suck air through the output of another appliance than suck air from inside the house, and that can leave ...

It's over. They are beyond saving. There was a chance when it was very fresh and wet, and if you started with the right thing (paint thinner) as mentioned on the paint can's label.

There are a number of ways to prevent backflow into a dishwasher which needs to be dealt ...

More than a few times I have found water lines plugged at the entrance to the valve on the washing machine or at the connection to the supply valve. Most washers come with screen filters to prevent chunks of material from getting stuck in the valve and flooding the home. I would turn the hot off, take the hose off at the faucet first if there is a screen ...
