Why does washing machine drawer go black?

After each use of the washer, moisture sits in the soap detergent drawer and dispenser housing area. This moisture attracts mold/mildew gunk as no airflow is present. This mold can sometimes block the detegent or fabric softener from entering the washer. The black mold can also be present in the dispenser housing area.

Do you need a pedestal for front load washers?

1-2 of 2 Answers. You do not need a pedastal. Your washer can sit right on the floor, however, if you had a pedestal, you can store items in it and it makes washing and drying a lot easlier by not having to bend over. They are pricey though.

Can you stack two front load washers?

While there will be some interchangeability in washer and dryer models across the same brand, you will not be able to stack laundry units from two different brands. As a result, you can only use a front load washer and front load dryer in your stacked appliance orientation.

Can I stack a dryer on top of a washer?

No, you can only stack a dryer on top. Washing machines are too heavy, especially when full of water and wet clothes. They also vibrate more during operation as their spin speeds are higher, increasing the risk of accidents if stacked.

Should I get pedestals for washer and dryer?

Height enhancers
Many front-loaders we test are excellent at cleaning, but the design isn't that convenient and requires lots of bending. That's why for $500 to $600 you can buy pedestals for the washer and its matching dryer. They raise the machines from 11 to 15 inches.

How do you lift a dryer on top of a washing machine?

Carefully lift the dryer up, with help.
At least two people will need to work together to lift the dryer up. Squat bent at the knees, and place your hands underneath the dryer. Lift carefully, using your legs rather than your back to pull the weight. Place the dryer on top of the washer.
