In search of a right hinged washer with a left vented dryer

therivieraMarch 31, 2013

We are building a new home and we are almost done. We just sold our house and the new owners want our w/d. In doing the research for a new w/d set we realized that our plumber messed up the vent/gas lines when we had to switch walls.

Anyways, in order to have the w/d flush against the wall, we need the dryer to go on the left, washer on the right. I know we can accomplish that with Electrolux and the European brands. The trouble is that we also need the vent to be on the left. I saw that Miele has that but it looks like it's no longer available in the US? Anyways, does anyone know a good option for us? Your help is greatly appreciated it.

If you haven't moved in yet, there's no better time than now to open up the wall and fix the vent and gas line. It's normally not a difficult repair. Why commit yourself to a lifetime of limited washer/dryer options?

Thanks, we are considering that. However, the drain is on the right (2nd floor laundry) and that will be much more difficult to move. I forgot to mention that in our first post.

What about the drain? Drain hoses are long enough to reach from the wash behind the dryer.

Only the large Mieles were discontinued - the smaller ones are still there.

Yep, agree with others above that Miele will be perfect for that setup. I have had the current W3033 washer since November. Awesome machine despite a few imperfections/quirks. Have not got the dryer, but by all accounts it also is an excellent unit. Good luck!

I have the Electrolux IQ touch front loader. The doors can be reversed. I too needed a washer with a right hinge and a dryer with a left hinge.
