Plumbing and Electrical that works for side by side or stacked?

dljmthMay 6, 2013

We are about to start on the electrical/plumbing and venting for our laundry room. I will likely select a stackable front loader (probably LG entry level model) but want an option to go side by side without the ugly vent showing. I don't mind so much the water hook up because it is small, but the vent/gas requires an approx 1'x2' high box where the duct and the gas line come out. Any thoughts to how to configure it so I can get both options? Can I have that vent box placed lower to the ground so that it is hidden even though I may have the dryer stacked on top of the washer?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Maybe I'm not understanding the situation, but if you center the vent on the rear wall, 2 feet or so above the floor, then the stacking units would hide it and so would a side by side installation.

A 1 by 2 foot box sounds huge just for a 4" dryer vent and a gas line.
