We will be getting a new washer & dryer, both front loaders and we would like them raised above floor level. We can buy the matching pedestals which aren't cheap & we're not likely to use for storage. If I want to avoid bending over when putting clothes in & out of the appliance, I'm not likely to want to bend over and lift out large containers of laundry detergent, etc.
I suggested to the builder that he give us a quote on just building a platform to set the W/D on. Am I asking for trouble doing this? Is the washer likely to vibrate off the platform whereas it has some kind of locking device to the matching pedestal?
Thanks - Jo Ann
