Shopping for a stacked washer and dryer unit isn't exactly easy. They're one of those purchases that requires internet research before heading out to the stores to check things out. They aren't exactly the Prom Queen of appliances and all look (for the most part) exactly the same so unless you know what you're looking for, you'll be out of luck. Here's our top 4 picks for these small space saving laundry appliances.
1. Kenmore White 27 in. Gas Super Capacity: This unit tips the larger side of the "compact and stacked" scale and has all sorts of bells and whistles to make sure your clothes are dried without shrinking and washed as efficiently as possible. $1,172.99
2. Kenmore White 24 in. Gas Laundry Center: This unit has the highest online ratings from Sears and Amazon both, which makes it a winner in our book. It has several settings allowing you to choose how full you have to fill the unit before starting, or rather how much water you'll be using along the way. $1,113.49.
3. Frigidaire White 27 in. Electric Front Load: This unit is a close runner up to the Kenmore above. This model is slightly larger and is also a front loader which we love. We'd much rather bend to get our laundry out of the tank instead of reaching into a half opened lid that his the bottom of the dryer above. $1,113.49.
4. Maytag Super Stack Electric: This unit, although it runs the same size and capacity as some of the units above as a special feature unique to it. What's called "IntelliFill" which adjusts your load size and thus your need for additional water, taking out all the guess work on if your load is small, medium or large and using as little water as possible each and every time (even if you throw in more clothes part way through the cycle)!
