Things to Consider When You Research Stacked Washer Dryers

At present, there are more choices than there ever were when considering stacked washer dryers. It wasn’t all that long ago that you had to either go to the laundromat to do your washing or you had to put up with two bulky machines, namely a dryer and a washing machine. Now we have the convenient choice of these smaller machines that fit easily into anyone’s home. Let’s take a look at some of the most important qualities to look for in stacked washer dryers.

One type of stackable machine is attached but separate washer on top, dryer on bottom. You need to remember however that they are separate machines that still require you to transfer the clothes from one to the other. In other words, you have to be close by for the whole process. For some, this is a disadvantage, but that’s part of the tradeoff when you’re saving so much space.

One thing you should consider when shopping for stacked washer dryers is the amount of noise they produce. Even though this might not seem a critical issue, no one wants to have a really loud unit in the background when doing their laundry. The noise level can differ significantly from one unit to the next. Some models have more noise insulation than others. Generally speaking, you will find that front loading machines don’t make as much noise as top loading units. Of course, if you’re just going to put your unit in the basement, or another out of the way place, you may not care. If the unit is going in the main area of your house, it should be something you keep in mind.

If you don’t want to worry about ventilation when it comes to stacked washer dryers, you may want to opt for a ventless combo unit. These are convenient if you only have a little bit of space and you don’t want the entire area to heat up with the hot air flowing out of your unit. Ventless stackable washer/dryers use condensations and that means they take the air that’s already in the machine and recycle it. This also means you can put these ventless units anywhere in your house, such as cabinets or even closets. Ventless combo units are probably the smallest and most low maintenance type of washer dryer you can find. They’re not very powerful, however, so keep that in mind when buying one of these.

Stacked washer dryers are ideal for people who want convenience and an appliance that will carry out an important job while not taking over the house. As more and more people realize how useful these units are, an increasing number of brands, features and models become available. The information provided above should prove helpful if you want to purchase a stacked washer dryer for your home. You need to ensure that you choose a model that includes all the features you require and is the right size for the space you have.

February 11, 2009 – This is the laundry and storage area for about 8 apartments – 4 washers and 4 dryers. Most of it works most of the time. Today was a really busy day in here, and it was hard to get a machine.

The storage room (to the right of this photo) does not have enough space for our suitcases, etc. It is completely unorganized and looks as if things have been shoved in there and forgotten. Most things aren’t labeled, so who knows if these things even belong to anyone who lives here?

Question by night_train_to_memphis: What are the most likely reasons an apartment complex would not allow residents to have washers or dryers?
The apartments where I live don’t have washer or dryer hook-ups in the actual apartments, but there’s a laundry room that any of the residents can use.

I respect the rules, but what are the reasons behind them? Are dryers generally considered fire hazards? Do washers unreasonably increase the chance of water damage? Do the machines make too much noise?

Even slightly relevant thoughts, ideas, and opinions are welcome.

Best answer:

Answer by Ted
They don’t want the expense of adding the extra plumbing and electrical.
Yes, some people don’t have enough sense to do laundry during the day and the noise will bother other tennants.
Yes, there is a great risk of water damage from washer malfunctions.
And, they can make a few bucks off of the coin operated machines.
