Just got a bid from C/W for $475.00 to install washer/dryer. I really want to install myself but DW is apprehensive about me doing the install. The price is good for the washer/dryer itself.

$1142.99 and free shipping on Amazon for the combo unit, model 2100xc. We have it and like it. May take a little longer and doesn't do as big of a load, but it works for us.

Sorry I'm not interested in a combo, I know a combo works for some people but I want a stackable washer/dryer. I want a vented unit, and a hole has to be cut for that. DW is a little apprehensive about me cutting the hole, I'm like Tim the tool man on tv.

We are happy with the stackable. You can be drying a load while you start the next one. The washer takes about an hour and 19 minutes to complete and a good hour in the dryer.
If you want to come to NW Arkansa, I'll be glad to install it for you and use you as the laborer!

the install went easier then I thought it would go. Scariest part putting the hole in the wall.

Congrats, WLS!

Sure would appreciate if you would elaborate on how you cut the hole in the wall. Also, what did you use to do the deed?

Thanks much.


God Bless,

Here's some pictures I took when I installed my washer and dryer. Unfortunately, I didn't take any of the hole cutting, but one pic shows the internal location and others show the external. I know this is very close to where the factory would have cut the hole, so why was there a 120 volt AC wire running through that area?

Congrats WLS. Did you run into any wires?

The closet where I have to put the washer/dryer in is tight, I'll only have two or three inches to spare. Question, do stack the units together before you put them in the closet? Do you fasten the unit to the floor?

I had all kinds of room on the left side of my units and I put the washer in first. Had everything done with it and then put the dryer on top of the washer. However, I have all kinds of room on the left side of my units. You can also see the hold down brackets in one of the pics. They are a bit weird in that they only hold down the front mounts. I thought I would attach some sort of restraining bracket at the top of the dryer, but never got a Round-2-It! Let's face it, you are not going to accelerate fast enough to throw it down!

I installed the washer first, hooked all the hoses up, screwed down the washer with the brackets that come with it. I bought a 4" bi-metal hole saw from HD, the kind with a pilot drill bit in it also. My CC was pre marked, (Drill Here), so I went from the inside first, right to where the pilot bit went thru the gel coat on the outside. I then went outside, put the pilot bit in the hole it made from the inside, drilled till I was thru. Only thing is I went thru a stud, not my fault, because I went by where they said to drill. (I am going to show the dealer incase something happens down the road. I was also thinking of contacting someone at the factory to let them know of any future rigs they mark.) I hooked up the dryer vent that goes on the outside. Then I carried the dryer up to the area it was to go, lifted it up on the washer, hooked it up to the mounts that go on the washer. I put the 90 degree elbow on the dryer before I lifted on washer. I put the hose on and clamped it all tight, and was done with the install.
