Do you put a load of clothes in the wash and go to work? If so, you may be risking a flood or a fire. Washers can malfunction and cause a flood. A hose can burst or a drum can leak. Dryers can catch fire from too much lint in the lint trap, or just from overheating if they are not turned off. So never leave your apartment while your washer and dryer are running. And always remember to clean out your lint filter.
