Laundry Options for Homes without Washer and Dryer Connections

If your home does not have any washer and dryer connections, you might think visiting your local laundromat is your only solution for doing laundry. You would be surprised to learn this is not the only option you have available. Whether you rent your home or own it, you have other solutions which allow you to do laundry at home and stop making regular trips to the laundromat.

Options for Homeowners

One of the easiest ways to get in-home laundry is to install a LG washer dryer combo or stackable washer dryer with ventless drying. Ventless drying eliminates having to run a dryer vent through the walls and to the outdoors. With a washer and dryer combo, both the washing and drying functions are combined into a single appliance. It is one of the easier solutions to add in-home laundry with the least amount of work.

The only connections a combo laundry appliance needs are hot and cold water lines, discharge drain, and 110V standard outlet. Since these are the only connections required, it provides greater flexibility and a wide array of areas within the home to install the new appliance, such as in a bathroom, under the counter in your kitchen, or by converting a closet into your new laundry room. With a stacked washer and ventless dryer solution, the only additional connection required is a 220V appliance outlet.

If you do not have easy access to an 110V standard outlet or need to have a 220V appliance outlet installed, it is highly recommended to utilize the services of a qualified electrician to ensure the work is completed according to current building and fire codes. Tapping into existing water lines and discharge drains is not difficult for most experienced DIYers. However, if this is beyond your skill set, hire a professional plumber.

Options for Renters

When you rent an apartment or home, your landlord may prevent you from making major modifications to the home, like tapping water and drain lines and installing or moving electrical outlets, but this does not mean you cannot still have in-home laundry with a combination washer and dryer. All that is required are a few accessories added to the existing appliance to turn it into a portable washing machine on wheels. Any time you need to do a load of laundry, you simply roll the machine up to the kitchen sink, attach the quick connect hose attachment to the faucet, plug the all-in-one washer dryer into any 3-prong standard outlet, and you are ready to wash and dry your clothes.

Getting in-home laundry is not difficult, whether you own or rent your home and lack existing washer and dryer connections.
