Which stackable pair?

saeyedocFebruary 13, 2014

Now that Miele is only selling ventless dryers, I think they are out. It's just too hot here to put all that hot air back in the house.
Laundry room will be in a very visible area of the house, so we want it to look good and take up minimal space, so thinking stackable is a good option and would rather not mix/match brands to keep a clean look.
Thinking Speedqueen, looks very well built with minimal electronics to break.
Better to get separate units and stack them as opposed to a stacked combo, or would that be ok? Concern would be if one breaks, the whole thing could go down.
Any way to stack a top loaded washer with a dryer?

Another step towards pulling out of the North American marketplace?

... with minimal electronics to break. Speed Queen dryers have mechanical timers but the frontload washers are electronic behind the rotary knobs.

Ok, thanks. I think I'm going to bag the stackable idea and just get a topload SQ washer and one of their dryers. Found a place 4 miles from here that carries them.

Went to a place that carried some Speedqueens, guy said they all have printed circuit boards. Looked very well made though.
I guess there are no currently made washer/dryers that are entirely mechanical.

We went with stackable LGs, and have been very pleased with their performance. They look great, too.

Sounds like your SQ salesman didn't have any idea what he was talking about.

Indeed, just talked to a repair place. They said the top load washers have no electronics. Salesman I talked to is obviously clueless.
