Limited Laundry Space? Consider a Stackable Washer and Dryer
You may have space considerations any time you downsize to a smaller home, apartment, or condo. In your previous home, you might have had plenty of room for a full size conventional washer and dryer. However, your new home might not have the same amount of room in the laundry area. Luckily, there are space-saving solutions available from LG which will allow you to still have in-home laundry.
One option is to look at a stackable washer and dryer. It is important to point out that these are separate appliances and not a combination stacked unit, like some other brands offer. The dryer is securely attached and placed on top of the washer. Both appliances are only 24 inches wide and 33.5 inches tall. When stacked, the combined height is approximately 67 to 68 inches.
You will need to have access to a 220 V electrical outlet for the dryer and a regular three-prong outlet for the washer. The dryer does require either a three-prong or four-prong special cord, depending upon the age of your new home. In addition to these electrical outlet requirements, your new LG stackable washer and dryer require access to hot and cold water lines and a discharge drain. You do not need to connect the dryer to a vent, because it uses ventless drying technologies. Ventless drying commonly uses air-to-air condensation. In this method the unit uses two different air circulation systems in order to extract moisture from your clothes. As the water is removed from the clothes, it is pumped out of the machine and down the discharge drain.
