For anyone looking for the ultimate in space-saving portable washers and dryers, they’ll find some great options in the stackable portable washer and dryer combo.
Stackable washers and dryers not only save space, but they free up your time and cost less than most traditional alternatives. Additionally, they provide you with flexibility and much-needed space, so in-room laundry can be achieved in almost any living situation.
The stackable washer and dryer unit was the most likely next step for portable washers. One of the main reasons why portable washing machines are so popular is because they are major space-savers, making laundry possible for people who could never afford to do it within their homes before. If you’re interested in saving space, then you’d probably taken that next logical jump to wondering whether you could save even MORE space by stacking two units together.
Before we go on, let’s put this right out there: you should NOT purchase a portable washing machine and also a portable dryer that were not made to be placed anywhere other than the floor, and stack them one on top of the other. The only stackable machines you should consider are ones that were fully designed to be stackable.
Prior to committing to a purchase, you should also consider some important aspects of owning a stackable portable washer and dryer unit:
- Do you have someplace where you can store the unit when not in use, and does this area fit both the width, depth, and height dimensions of your washer and dryer.
- Have you considered how much laundry you will need to do per week, and whether the top unit is easy enough to get to for whoever I using it.
- Are you okay sacrificing some of the mobility and portability of the more traditional washer and dryer, in exchange for the space-saving aspects of the portable washer and dryer
If so, here are three of our favorites:
GE GUD27ESSJWW 27″ Unitized Spacemaker Washer and Electric Dryer in White
If you want to save space, but you also don’t want to skimp on load space, the GE is a good option to check out. It has several settings, and works well in a compact space. It does need a 225V hookup, but it saves much more space than a side-by-side traditional washer and dryer.
Sekido Stackable Compact Super White Washer SK 824 and Dryer SK 850
If you have a 110V hookup, then the Sekido Stackable Compact Washer could be your solution. This combo has a venting option for the dryer, and a 13 lb. load capacity. It has water saving options, and an end-of-cycle chime, so you can walk away from the laundry, and still hear it to switch loads immediately.
Frigidaire FFLE4033QW 9.3 Cu. Ft. White Electric Washer/Dryer Combo
The smallest of the combos is our 9.3 cu. ft. washer/dryer unit. If you’re really strapped for space, consider this 250 lb. unit, that’s only 32 x 27 x 76 inches.
