Pedestals and stack kits add convenience and save space for your front-loading washer/dryer
Pedestals raise front-loading washers and dryers by approximately one foot for added convenience. Stack kits enable the washer and dryer to stack vertically to save space in your laundry room, basement or garage.
This buying guide highlights the available pedestals and provides information on stack kits and how they are compatible with your washer or dryer.
Remember when shopping: Pedestals and stacking kits are sold separately online. Check your washer and dryer for stacking and pedestal compatibility, since not all models can be stacked.
Pedestals are metal platforms, or risers, installed beneath front-load washers and dryers.
Pedestals are important accessories that provide increased accessibility and storage options, as they reduce the amount of bending required to load and unload.
Coordinating pedestals are available in store or online at the time you make your initial purchase.
Pedestal delivery and installation is included with your initial appliance purchase.
Pedestals purchased separately in stores are not eligible for free delivery or installation.
Some advanced models hold up to six months of detergent and fabric softener that dispenses automatically with each wash cycle.
- Double-check that the width of your chosen pedestal is appropriately matched with your washer and/or dryer size.
Stack kits are metal brackets that stack front-load dryers on top of front-load washers to save space.
The dryer must be stacked on top of the washer as they weigh much less.
- Stack kits are sold separately from washers and dryers. They can be shipped separately if purchased separately.
Stack kits save valuable floor space and enable you to pair them in locations other than a laundry room for added convenience.
Stack kits are designed by the manufacturer for specific models and should be ordered when purchasing your laundry appliances.
- Washers and dryers with pedestals beneath cannot be stacked.
