Measuring your space
If you’ve already found the washer and dryer that you want but are wondering if it will fit into your home, follow these tips to make sure you have enough room:
When looking at washer and dryer specs,
you’ll see the Width X Height X Depth dimensions. Here’s how to measure for those specs so you can make sure that the set that you’re shopping for will fit in your space.
Where do you put your washer and dryer?
Look for the dryer vent outlet and the water supply line to find the space in your home designed to store your washer and dryer.
Make sure you leave some free space
Leave 1”-3” on the sides, at least 4”-6” at the back and, for top load washers, at least 20” for door clearance.
Getting the washer and dryer inside
Remember to check out how you’ll be bringing the washer and dryer in. Look for sharp corners, narrow doorways, and anything else that might get in the way on delivery day.
