Stackable washer and dryers are the best option when there is space constraint in your living premises. Both the washer and dryer are stacked on top of each other. We can use the stackable option by buying separate front loading washer and dryers machines and stack them manually using special accessories like the Stacking kits and the washer / dryer mounting bracket. You should purchase those machines which are labeled as Stackable & also from the same manufacturer for safety concerns. You can also separate them later & use these machines as individual units. The Stackable washer and dryer machines have the same washing & drying capability as that of regular machines.

You can save on laundry time by the simultaneous usage of both these machines which is another advantage the stacked washer and dryers have over the traditional washers and dryers.

Generally front loading units consume less energy, thus saving on the energy bill. This can be verified by looking at the Energy Star Ratings which is an international standard for any consumer electronic product indicating how energy efficient a consumer product is. For the best stackable washer and dryer you should buy those which have a rating of 3 star and above.

Another way to overcome the space constraint is to buy the stacked washer dryer machines which are sold by the manufacturers as a single unit. These are slim with a width range of 24 - 27 inches, combined height of 70 - 75 inches , depth of 30 - 35 inches and are useful for light laundry load of your clothes. They are sold as top load washers and front load dryer units.

The best stackable washer and dryers are usually priced above $1000. Listed below are the ones rated best by expert reviewers from around the web.

  • Overall, the LG WM3470HVA's wash performance was only slightly above average, with some underperforming cycles dragging down the LG's cumulative scores. However, the 39 minute Cottons/Normal cycle managed to get clothes very clean, very fast. That alone is reason enough to put this washer on your shopping list.

    The LG WM2650HWA manages to deliver an excellent steam feature while keeping costs low - around the $900 mark. It's not just price consideration that earns it top honors however, but the combination of many features into one machine. This front-loader is incredibly energy-efficient, using an average of 5 gallons of water per load.


  • This washer costs $34.91 to run over the course of a year, which is fairly average. We are neither impressed nor particularly upset over this number, but users can lower it by using the Whites cycle sparingly, which adds an extra rinse to wash out bleach, thereby increasing the annual cost.


  • Get those Olympic logo socks over here, Usain Bolt, because the Samsung WF457ARGSGR/AA has one of the fastest Normal cycles weĆ¢?? ve seen, and the overall performance in terms of stain removal is satisfactory across the board. This MSRP $1,799 washer ($1,530 on sale), while certainly not the top contender, does a solid job nonetheless. We only wish that it was less expensive to run, more competitive in terms of clothes handling, and a bit better with water retention.


  • The LG WM2250CW is a mid tier washing machine. After all the test results came in, we didn't feel impressed or disappointed. The washing performance was less than average given the price point. When it first came out, had an MSRP of $799, but we were able see units available for as low as $717. However, the WM2250CW makes up for this shortfall by being slightly ahead of the pack in efficiency.
