Which dryer to buy?

Posted by yugi (My Page) on

I've got Miele W1926 washer and now I need to buy an electric dryer, not necessarily Miele. I have about 27 inches of width and around 33 inches of depth space, and it will be stacked on the Miele. The space is surrounded by walls, so it wouldn't fall. Currently I have single 14-30R outlet.

RE: Which dryer to buy?

Dryers are pretty much alike - buy one that has the features you want, the size you need and a price you like. However, no resposible member of this forum will recommend stacking a mismatched dryer directly on top of the washer. That is not a good idea for many reasons. If you build a stand for the dryer over the washer then fine, but stacking them directly is a bad idea. Matching sets that are stacked are connected with a kit that keeps them firmly attached. Stacking them loose is not the same thing, walls or not.

RE: Which dryer to buy?

Yes, I'll build a stand.

RE: Which dryer to buy?

Let me reformulate my question. I need the dryer with following requirements:
1. Electric
2. 220V
3. not wider than 27"
4. Front controls
5. Front loading
