    Default Do you stack your dryer on top of your washer?

    We have ours stacked and the bloke that sold them to us recommended a rubber matting thing in between to give some grip/stability. Washer is an LG, Dryer is Electrolux so not the same brand, but similar size.

    Yep ours are stacked. We have a rubber mat between them and made sure we picked a lighter dryer and one that was similar size

    I have my dryer and front loader separate. My old front loader moves a bit on its violent spin cycle lol no way it would be safe to have a dryer on top. But this may be just because it is about 13 years old I'm sure a new one wouldn't be that violent!
    We thought about those, but at the store we shop at (jb hifi) they start at $2599 and the reviews online for that model are horrible. I wouldn't mind paying that if it had good reviews but also thinking about the fact that I like to wash and dry two loads at the same time, the seperate washer and dryer would be better for us.. Plus it comes in at under $1500

    Thanks so much for all of your advice ladies, I'll talk to the store and see if they recommend a rubber mat or shelf etc. did anyone buy your dryer shelves from the dryer seller or did you get them at a hardware store?

    For us it was an 'accessory' and ordered at the same time.

    We have our dryer sitting on top of our washer. I was a bit worried as we have a heat pump dryer and it's quite heavy but the guy at jb hifi assured us it would be ok and so far so good. We bought a carpet square from Bunnings to put between the two and don't get any movement.

    I've heard the washer/dryer combos are best avoided. Apparently they aren't very good at either job!
