How to Get the Green Square Gem in Basement Washing Machine in Luigi’s Mansion 3?

To get the Green Gem in the Basement washing machine in Luigi’s Mansion 3, you’ll first have to get the Poltergust G-00. Yes, it’s frustrating to have that gem just in front of your nose that way, but what’re you gonna do? Oh, and getting the Poltergust is just the first step. The second is to push through the campaign until you get the Suction Shot. That’s a very fancy name for a big ole plunger. And how does one get the Suction Shot? Well, let’s explain.

After you meet professor E. Gadd, follow the instructions that he gives you. Eventually, the two of you are gonna go into the garage. There, you’ll meet a ghost of a bellhop that you’ll have to defeat. This is the first boss in the game. The ghost will drop two elevator buttons, one of which will be for the fifth floor. Meanwhile, the professor is gonna fetch his mobile lab that acts as a hub of sorts. He’ll also give you the elevator tracker and other stuff. When this is all done, head back to the elevator and place the buttons. Travel to the fifth floor, and E. Gadd will tell you about the Suction Shot.

Now, all that’s left to do is go back to the Basement and the offending washing machine. Fire the Suction Shot at the door by pressing Y. Start sucking with the Poltergust and get the end of the plunger into it, then hit A. This will tug the door open, and you’ll be able to get the green square gem in the Basement of Luigi’s Mansion 3.
