Bleach reservoir not accessible - options? - Similar to these designs, I have a washer and dryer being installed in cabinets. With the design of today's washers, I can't figure out how to have enough space for the cab doors to close properly but still allow for the soap drawer to be pulled out sufficiently to put in the bleach. In other words, because of the design of the washer, the drawer is set back from the front plane by a couple inches at least - and pulling it out to its full extent only allows for soap to be dispensed from above - the bleach area is still covered by the counter. Help?

BTW, I like your panel and sliding doors. But with a standard W&D you would still have the same issue. Just can't seem to get past today's washer designs.

How do you connect the washer and dryer? - How do you connect the water and electricity as well as the dryer duct to back of this when it's enclosed? We want to do this but I don't know how I would get the washer and dryer connected and in there. Thanks!

Plumbing and electricity is in the back of the washer and dryer. These are just panels on each side of the washer and dryer. They don't have to go all the way back to the wall if you don't want them to. You do need add a cleat in the back for countertop support.

I would like to know where the doors in the background are found? - They look like closet doors that roll behind one another. What is the source for purchasing them, manufacturer, etc? Any information you could provide would be greatly appriciated! Thank you.

Enclosed Washer/Dryer cabinet - I'd like to do a cabinet similar to this; is the washer/dryer cabinet vented in anyway? I was looking at the spec requirements and they indicate venting is required e.g. a mesh or slats about the size of a air/heat register.

Love the pocket door idea...how much width did that add to your space for the washer/dryer?

Depending on the hardware used for the pocket doors, you would need an extra 9"-12". We used 24" wide Bosch washer and dryers here, so the total space was 58".

Hardware details? - This is exactly what we were aiming for. Do you know the specifics on the pocket door hardware used, i.e. manufacturer, model #s etc? Thanks.

This Bosch washer and dryer is only 24" wide. If you have a 27" wide washer and dryer, you may need to use two sets of pocket doors. That way the doors can be smaller and it's easier to find pocket door hardware to work. The overall space will need to be larger for two sets of hardware.

Thanks for the info. Guess I'll keep looking. Luckily the design we have allows for an easy retro fit if I ever find something.

Thanks again.

Where can I get Washer and Dryer Cabinets. - We have a small house and the laundry needs to be in the kitchen. We don't want to see the laundry appliances and are wondering if there are any cabinet manufacturers that sell cabinets for washers and dryers.

Cabinet companies don't make cabinets specifically for washer and dryers. These pocket doors were designed by me and ordered through my cabinet company. You should go to a kitchen designer to make sure the design works with the specs of your washer and dryer. You need to be aware of width, height and depth when designing. A good kitchen designer will be able to incorporate a washer and dryer into your kitchen design. We have to do it occasionally here in Hawaii due to the small condo kitchens.
