One obvious question that I feel has not been asked is this:
How far from the dryer outlet is the washer drain? If the drain tube is slightly restricted and is near, there may be some overflow (possibly inside the wall even) that could be the culprit. I had a problem a few months ago when a porrly soldered water valve broke loose and started leaking. I had to remove a section of drywall and do some fast torch fu in order to get She Who Must Be Obeyed to stop asking "When are you going to turn the water back on??". If there is water present, there must be a source; in a laundry room the logical suspect is the washer or its' supply. Thing like this aren't supposed to happen, but...:yikes:
