Washer/Dryer Combo in 33IK

I was looking at installing a combo washer/dryer in our Silverback 33IK. It looks like it will extend quite a way out into the closet due to how the front cap is molded on the Silverback. The indent in the cap looks like it will not allow the combo to sit back against the wall. When I looked at our unit I did not have a tape measure so I could not get any measurements.

The other option is mounting it on the shelf that is there but I doubt it is strong enough to carry the weight and then puts the combo high compared to the drain.

Has anyone installed a Splendide in a 33IK or other Silverback with the cap issue.

For reference our pre-plumbing is in the closet on the left side. The plumbing is in the wall that separates the bedroom from the closer.

Yes, I have the Spledide stackables in my 2016 33ik.
Remove all closet rods both sides first. Then install washer.
Dryer must be inserted into right side of closet, then moved left onto top of washer.

Also be careful drilling dryer vent.
Electrical wiring was directly behind label that said " drill here."

Thx mbbutler for the reply. If I might ask a couple of questions.

First though I am looking to add the combo unit not stackable so I would not need to remove the the closet rods, right?

Does your unit set back flush against the exterior wall? When I look at our 33IK the indent in the cap seems like it would not allow the unit to fit back close to the wall therefore making the front stick out beyond the opening to closet. Since the width of the combo and stackable are the same at about 22” maybe there is room for the unit to slide next to indent? I should have taken my tape with me but I dropped by storage on a whim. So how does your unit fit? Pic would be nice but now I am asking for to much.

Is the door reversible? How they are set from factory they open the wrong way to allow easy access....

Just a quick comment. When we added a Spendid to our 5ver we opted for the non-vented version because we didn't want to make a vent hole. The disadvantage is that it takes several hours for a complete cycle. For us that did not make any difference. We'd turn it on and when it finished didn't matter.

Thx for the photos.. I guess I was thinking about this all wrong. I thought the washer/dryer mounted into the area to the left of where yourís is mounted, turned 90 degrees...

So basically you are giving up a substantial amount of closet space. Hey, less clothes, less laundry...lol.

Doors are not reversible. Mine fit with about an inch from the mirrored closet doors. Definitely a 2-3 man job. Remove mattress, set unit on bed foundation and work from there.

Put a pan underneath and drill hole in floor for overflow drain into cap. Better to have a flooded cap than closet and bedroom.

Also, be certain you leave enough gap on left side so you can reach in and turn water off.
