That gadget in #7 was not supposed to find pipe breaks, but I guess all's well that ends well.

Many newer washers don't even have lint traps anymore. Stupid idea. My washer drains into line from kitchen. There is also a rather large crack in slab just about where they join, pro'lly a shift or even collapse in cast iron under there. Its been a perpetual problem. Greasy/soap scum/ lint clog. I hard connected washer to stand pipe with anti-siphon valve. Clog problem became biennial instead of semi-annual at least.
