    Anyone over 5'2" or 5'3" would have no trouble reaching these.
  • NJFords

    I have the same units, bought a stacking kit, and put the dryer on top of the washer. I am 5'6" and find it difficult to reach into the dryer, and the controls are really too high. I am going to take them apart and use them side by side.

    The stacking washer/dryer looks to tall. I think I would need a ladder...

    My washer and dryer are similar. I have them stacked. I'm 5'2" and I can reach the controls (without being on my tiptoes).

    I am sure you could consult with a decorator for guidance there. Best of luck.

    I am 5'3" and no the top buttons are not hard to reach. When choosing the brand, consider how tall they are as some stackables are taller than others.

    We do not have the information but an earlier question brought forth an answer that they appeared to be Maytage appliances. Good luck.

    There should be an available stacking kit for your washer and dryer. I think I paid $28 for mine. Make sure it is for your specific units.

    It is located in the base cabinet- the 1 1/2" piece of wood above the beach towels and below the top frame of the cabinet.

              Key measurements to know. Laundry rooms have four primary areas and functions: entry and prep, washing, drying, and storage and ironing. It’s important to allow sufficient space for each function, so that your space — even if small — does not feel inefficient or cramped. You’ll want to allow at least 42 inches (107 centimeters) of width between opposite cabinets and walls. Washers and dryers that are placed side by side are typically designed to fit within 60 inches (152 centimeters) of width, although some manufacturers make smaller machines. Cabinets for laundry spaces come in standard sizes, like kitchen cabinets, with a depth of 24 inches (61 centimeters) for the base and 12 inches (30 centimeters) for the upper, and a width from 9 inches (23 centimeters) to 48 inches (122 centimeters), going up in 3-inch increments. Custom-made cabinets can be any width, but you will save money even with custom-built units if you choose the standard widths. Our guide provides you with the key laundry room measurements for creating a well-laid-out space. Key Measurements for a Dream Laundry Room

              8. Choose colored appliances. Perhaps you’ve given a little side eye to the people you’ve seen purchasing bright red washers and dryers. What they know that you may not is that this is an incredibly easy way to infuse color into what might otherwise be a bland space.

              Laundry:• Brighten your clothes by adding 1 cup of baking soda to the wash.• For extra-fluffy sheets and towels, add ½ cup of baking soda to the rinse cycle.• Banish stains with a paste made from 6 tablespoons of baking soda and ½ cup of warm water. Apply to the stain, rub and launder. For the toughest stains, let the paste sit for one or two hours. (Always check for color fastness.)• Freshen babies' burp cloths by sprinkling on baking soda, rubbing it in and washing as usual.

              Eden was so much younger that I knew it would be years before she could do hers. I forgot about it until a few months ago when I realized she was more than old enough, and I began to teach her. If you would like to experience this liberation, you need to:1. Teach your children how to do laundry.2. Stop doing it for them.Simple as that.The first step will take a while, and in the beginning you will probably initiate everything — that's OK. Teach your child how to:

              If you have to do laundry (and I am assuming you do), you may as well do it with a candy-apple-red washer and dryer set. Pow.

              10. Thoroughly clean sandy towels and swimsuits. Sand can wreak havoc on washing machines, so allow beach towels to dry outdoors and shake them well to remove sand before bringing them in for a wash. I like to pack my beach towels and swimsuits inside a beach bag, so everything stays together and will be easy to locate come next summer.

              like the corner concept. Use the outside wall. Great place for towels. Like the open concept but could put in cabinet doors.

              This looks like it might be a long narrow laundry room that has some storage.
