Stackable washer dryer for a short gal

tonygenoDecember 5, 2013

My daughter is 4' 11" and is about to purchase a laundry pair. She wants stackable but with the full size models we've seen the controls for the dryer are too high for her to reach without a stool. She wants a front loader. I know she can look at the various Asko, Bosch, and a GE model that are "compact" but they tend to be more expensive and she doesn't have a space issue. Additionally, I have read that the performance of these compact dryers tends to be quite poor.

Are there full size brands that allow the control panel of the dryer to be at the bottom? It looks like LG once offered this but I can't find anything like this on the new models.

Not sure why that's relevant, but the answer is one.

this Speed Queen maybe?

Frigidaire had a similar (and less expensive) machine until recently (GLEH1642FS), with a nice shelf for folding clothes built into it; some may still be in the pipeline.
