Does washer or dryer go on top?

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.

Are ventless dryers any good?

It is true that ventless dryers are easier to install, lower maintenance, and more efficient than vented dryers. However, non-vented dryers also tend to have a significantly higher upfront cost, and though they are gentler on clothes, they tend to take longer than a vented dryer to get everything dry.

How can you tell how old a washing machine is?

To determine the age of your appliance, use your serial number (not model number) to find date of manufacture. Our serial numbers begin with two letters followed by six numbers. The 2 letters at the beginning of the serial number tell you the month and year it was made.

Is it worth fixing a dryer?

It can be worth spending $150 – $200 to repair a midrange or high-end dryer that's less than three years old, for example. While a new basic model costs only $300 or so, a nicer model would cost much more. Repairing it can extend its life so you can get your money's worth.

Is it worth replacing washing machine bearings?

It's possible to replace these, but it will depend on the make and model. Some cheaper models and newer machines have sealed outer drums, so you can't replace the bearings – you have to replace the whole drum. With a new drum costing more than £100, plus labour costs, it may be more cost-effective to buy a new machine.

How long do washing machines last on average?

How much for a stackable washer and dryer?

Stackable washers and dryers aren't cheap. Even smaller combo washer and dryer models can cost close to $1,000 or up to $2,000, and if you choose the route of buying a front-loading washer and dryer each separately, you may well spend close to that on each unit.

When should I replace my dryer?
