Even though youcanstack the dryer on top of the washer, you must obtain a separate stacking kit to ensure the dryer stays on top of the washer regardless of the amount of vibration created during the wash cycle. The kit fits the slots and screw holes on the back of the washer and dryer, so they connect together.

Lay a carpenter’s level on top of the washer and continue to adjust the feet until the air bubble floats between the two vertical lines inside the glass tube. Ask an assistant to help lower the back of the Duet dryer onto the floor to expose the feet.

Clean the bottom of the dryer with the all-surface cleaner and dry it with paper towels. Peel the protective paper from the adhesive side of one of the foam strips provided with the WhirlpoolDuetstack kit.

The foam strips should not stick out past the edge of the dryer cabinet. Insert the curved ends of the metal stacking bracket into the horizontal slots on the back of the dryer.

The kit makes it easy to stack the dryer on top of the washer. However, the brackets supplied in the kit did not align precisely with our machine, so we ended up drilling holes ourselves to ensure the brackets could be attached securely.

And do they stick out farther being stacked than they would if they were separate (like the Samsung website indicates for some reason)? I have no advice about the controls, but just wanted to remind you to also make sure your ceiling is high enough to allow them to stack.

This house was built less than a year ago, and I cannot believe they didn't account for the size of new washer and dryer units, when they specifically built the room as a laundry room. I would put the w/d unit in the basement but there are no laundry hook ups down there.

You're right, that is pretty dumb if its new construction! Our home is 60 years old... you either remodel or make due! I am the opposite of the OP as I am 5'11” so I have no problems reaching the controls to the dryer.

Have you been to a store that has them stacked to see how well they work with your height? We have an older stacked unit (Maytag) and the controls for the dryer are on the bottom.

May you could find a unit with the dryer controls on the bottom. My mom has a stacked one, and she is only 5'0”, toucan still reach the controls fine.

Why are the smaller units such a problem? I'm not sure why that would make you rather want to go to the laundromat. We have small front loaders (the WhirlpoolDuet) and I don't have issues with them...

I'd be nervous about buying something bigger, too, since ours at least tend to move a bit while in cycle. Here's my 2 century mother is 5'0” and lived with me for 6 weeks until her new home was completed.

If you have a dependable service man, ask him also if he sees them a lot or if they are really expensive to repair. The sport model is built especially for second level installations. I'm 5'3” and have no problem reaching the dryer controls.

A couple of words of caution--when work needs to be done on either washer or dryer, they will both have to be pulled out of the closet. Depending on the construction of your home, you may need a washer similar to the WP sport.

It is created to minimize vibrations (these front loaders spin at something like 60-80 mph) Right now, I have a curtain hung until I can retrofit the existing door with a vent.

Hoppy: we actually have a laundry room, it isn't just a closet, so those things wouldn't be a problem. Piecey: what I was saying was that, as far as I've seen, the only units that would fit in our room (side by side) would be top loading units, and not even the bigger top loaders with no agitator (which I've had previously and did like, but they are also too deep).

My neighbor showed me his units today, they are front loading maytags, but I can 't find them online anywhere to see how deep they are. I'll tell you one thing that REALLY bothered me about the stacked front loading...every brand except one (and I can 't remember which one now) has the doors opening opposite ways.

Also, keep in mind that many people with front loaders say they have to keep the washer door open when not in used to reduce the mildew smell. Will you have enough room for this? Personally, I would take a smaller top loader in a heartbeat over a stacked unit.

We used to have two 27" wide GE w/d units here (when they were downstairs) and they were quite spacious inside, fit great, and were easy to use. Toucan fold and sort laundry on top of the machines.

A final suggestion: go visit a good local appliance store. Talk to a specialist who works there, bring in your measurements, and see what they say about your options.

You may find something that works better than what is typically available at the local “big box” store. I was lucky enough to get last year's Black Friday special from sears- $599 for a washer and dryer.

The specs on the website say '52" deep when stacked' and I feel like this can 't possibly be right. They two units stacked together are approximately 76-1/2 inches high (this includes the connector).

Maybe Samsung was giving you measurements with the door open? The power button on the dryer is about 74-1/2” from the floor at its mid point.

Have you thought of changing the doors to opening out instead of into the laundry room?? LG tried to insist that we needed to pay a separate labor charge to the repairman to unstuck and then restock the units even though the cost of the repair itself was covered under warranty.

It took a few phone calls before LG agreed to eat the fee for this. We have a set of stackable Samsung W/D which we planned on stacking in our laundry room, but can 't do it easily.

According to Samsung documentation, toucan relocate the vent to the side, but there isn't any prebuilt provisions to do it.
