First, this is my first post to any site so please excuse any breach of etiquette.
We have a stackable LG washer (WM2496HWM) and gas dryer (DLG9588WM) with the controls on the bottom. The dryer is working fine but weÃ¯Â¿Â½ve had some issues with the washer. A few years ago, we faced a large repair bill for the washer and decided to replace it but none of the big discounters would disconnect and reconnect the gas dryer at any price so we kept the washer.
The washer is having issues again and we would like to replace it before it totally fails. We were even willing to replace the perfectly good dryer for stacking compatibility however, nobody makes a dryer with controls at the bottom anymore. My wife is just over five feet and doesnÃ¯Â¿Â½t want to stand on a stool every time she uses the dryer.
I know nothing about how stacking works but it doesnÃ¯Â¿Â½t seem that complicated. Can a washer from another manufacturer be stacked under our dryer? We went to a dedicated appliance store and were told that LG no longer makes mid-level washers. Their cheapest washer would be $911 with the dryer disconnect/reconnect included.
Anyone have any ideas.
