Where did you get the countertop over/around the washer/dryer? - I'm looking for a very inexpensive solution to cover/protect the surface of my new washer and dryer. It's a front loader like pictured here and I would love to use the top as counter space. Any suggestion? I do have cabinets above so i just need some suggestions to make the top into a countertop. Thanks, any and all suggestions would be very helpful.

I have the same question. We were thinking of putting strips of wood on the walls next to the machine then getting a countertop and attaching it to the wood with Velcro so it doesn't slide around. We could easily remove it if need be. Whirlpool also has a pad you can put on top but it looks like it is discontinued.

How do you keep the washer & dryer from bumping together when the washer is spinning if they're that close together?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Buckminster Green LLC added this to Contractor Tips: Wise Advice for Laundry Room Design
The washing machine itself could leak, so if you're on an upper floor, it should be installed in a pan with a drain, as shown in this picture. Better yet, tile the floor and have a floor drain installed. This way you'll be ready for any floods and you can mop the floor right into the drain.

A noise you don't want to ignore is what's known as "water hammer." Newer machines add small bursts of water repeatedly, and the water turning on and off can rattle the pipes in the wall, potentially causing leaks. If you hear a clunking sound when the washer runs, consult a plumber before it's too late. On the outside of the wall, a burst washer hose can flood your house in a minute, so make sure you are using braided stainless steel reinforced hoses.
