Stackable Washer and Dryer Sets - Top 5 for 2018

With population density increasing at a breakneck pace, usable interior space in homes is at a premium. When it comes to laundry appliances, cues are being taken from urban building design and people are looking to configure vertically. By stacking a washer and dryer, you immediately halve the base footprint required to do laundry. Even in homes with space to spare, the preference is tending toward this setup. Dedicated laundry rooms are being repurposed for other uses. To help you along, here are Appliances Connection's top 5 picks for stackable washer and dryer sets for 2018.

Bosch 24 Inch Stackable Set

Bosch has consistently spent decades as one of the top three household appliance manufacturers in the world. They've done this by offering uncompromising quality, technical perfection, and absolute reliability. This 500 Series washer/dryer set closely hews to those standards. The WAT28401UC 500 Series Front Load Washer has a svelte 24-inch width but boasts a spacious 2.2 cu ft capacity. As with all Bosch washers and dryers, this is enclosed by a one-piece stainless steel drum that will protect and extend the life of all your clothing and linens. It's powered by an EcoSilence motor that can spin the drum up to 1400 RPM for more power and better cleaning while being quiet and efficient. This allows the use of its SpeedPerfect mode which will clean a load up to 25% faster than competitors' washers. The corresponding WTG86401UC 500 Series Electric Dryer has a 4.0 cu ft capacity that can accommodate up to a hefty 17.6 lbs - the equivalent of up to 18 towels in one load. It uses the latest technology of Condensation Drying which condenses the moisture in the hot air throughout the drying cycle and drains it with the rest of the excess water, alleviating the need for ducting or a blower. Integral to the stackability of this set is the need for only one electrical line to run both appliances which allows for easy installation. This Bosch 500 series set proves that you don't need to sacrifice capability for compactness.

Steam Fresh lets you quickly freshen up and remove wrinkles from up to five lightly-worn garments in minutes.

Whirlpool Stackable

Whirlpool 27 Inch Stackable Set

With over a century under its belt, the title of most time-honored appliance manufacturer of this lot certainly belongs to Whirlpool. Through this they've successfully straddled tradition and foresight as can be seen with this duo. With its 5.0 cu ft capacity, the WFW8620HC 27 Inch Front Load Washer can handle almost any large load you throw at it. The washer's not only able to accommodate you in the way of volume, but does all it can to optimize your efficiency. The Load & Go reservoir hold enough detergent for 12 loads so you can throw your laundry in, adjust the settings, and everything's ready to go. This works in tandem with the Precision Dispense feature which releases and mixes detergent with water at the ideal time in the cycle to more completely permeate fabrics and eliminate the need for pretreating. Dovetailing it all is Adaptive Wash technology that senses the needs of each load and adapts wash actions for a thorough clean while keeping colors vibrant. You couldn't ask for this washer to be better paired than with the WED8620HC 27 Inch Gas Dryer. The 7.4 cu ft drum makes for effortless transfer of your freshly washed load. Once there, your laundry will be cradled by quad baffles that are shorter and more staggered than in other dryers. With this simple yet unique layout, larger items will dry more evenly while smaller items are kept tumbling and not over drying by getting caught up in the baffles. Used with the three built-in sensors that make up the Advanced Moisture Sensing system, the dryer will constantly monitor moisture levels and end a cycle only when its contents are perfectly dry. Whirlpool has learned from its long experience to anticipate its loyal customers' needs.

Samsung 27 Inch Stackable Set

Samsung's history in major appliance manufacturing is barely a blip on the timeline. Since its recent inception, though, it's become an absolute juggernaut with a whopping 18% of US market share. It's done this by applying its commitment to excellence in the high-tech field and it shines through in this washer/dryer set. The WF45M5500AW 27 Inch Front Load Washer makes a striking first impression in rich azure blue and makes an even better second impression with its huge 4.5 co ft capacity. The impressive Direct Drive Motor can spin the drum up to 1300 RPM while implementing VRT Plus technology for 40% more vibration reduction and quiet wash cycles. For even more effective cleaning the Samsung features Steam Wash. Unlike other washers which emit steam from above, this model logically introduces steam from the bottom of the tub where it rises and saturates every iota of fabric, removing all traces of odor and dirt. In between washes, you can use the Self Clean+ option that, through a combination of soaking and high-speed spinning, keeps the drum fresh and clean without the use of harsh chemicals. A fresh laundry drum means fresh clothing and linens. Just as capable is the matching DVG45M5500W 27 Inch Gas Dryer. Its substantial 7.5 co ft capacity will help expedite laundry day as you'll be able to dry everything in far fewer loads. It sports ten dry cycle presets, four temperature settings, and four dry levels so it's guaranteed that you'll have a selection that dries everything to your satisfaction. The dryer makes further strides to be utterly foolproof with Sensor Dry which detects the need for each individual load and will set the temperature and drying time accordingly. Like the LG, this Samsung washer/dryer set also has an exclusive smart self-diagnostic system called Smart Care. For more information on its use, click here.
