depth needed for washer

Posted by Supernova5271 (My Page) on

I am planning to buy a Samsung washer and Dryer. the two will be stacked in the space. I am having concerns if they will fit in my closet.
The depth of the room is 33".
The appliances have depth of 31.5"
1. I want to make sure how much space does the washer need? is 1.5" enough?
2. I know the gas dryer will need additional 4" for the venting. We have that space but we may need to stack the appliance in a way such that the dryer comes out further than the washer. Is that possible?

would really appreciate help.

i have the sammy w & D. IMO you need a bare MINIMUM of 5' from the back wall of the closet, to the far wall of the room. 6' would be a WHOLE LOT BETTER. It's going to be annoyingly cramped, if you have just 5' of depth.

Have you checked the Samsung web site? Often there are links to click on, at a product's page, that gives the technical specs on dimensions. It's worth a look to see if you can find that on the machines in which you are interested.
