provide drying on washing machine
A bathroom with washer and dryer is convenient, but both devices need next to each other a space of 1.2 m, which does not represent any bathroom. Nevertheless, one must not do without a dryer. It is also possible to set the dryer on the washing machine, thus saving space.
By such "washing tower" to build, there are several solutions to choose from. The trade has to a Stacking Kit or intermediate structural frame, which is often also a pull out tray in addition to good attachment. The solutions are well thought out and safe.
But even with simple means and without high costs it is possible to set the dryer on the washing machine. needed this just a piece of countertop and some angles that can be found in almost every workshop. Machine Tower quickly compiled in accordance with our instructions.

Work Materials and Supplies Needed
Depending on the method, different aids and tools are needed.
Washing tower with Stacking Kit:
- spirit level
- any cordless screwdriver
Plate between washer and dryer
- spirit level
- Saw (optimal Tischkreis- or circular saw)
- Cordless Screwdriver
- at least six steel angle
Washing machine on dryer or reversed?
It is often asked whether a washing machine can also be placed on a dryer. In principle, the question can be answered with a yes. It should be noted, however, that the washing machine caused significantly more movements and therefore a secure footing needed. If this does not warrant the Waschmschinenturm can become unstable and not work against the washing machine a spin cycle. The fuses must be drastically increased in this case.
Unless there is driftigen reason for this arrangement, it should be avoided to provide a washing machine to the dryer. As dangerous to provide a dryer on a smaller washing machine. This requires a larger footprint for the dryer should be created with a secure base.
Step 1: sawing Matching countertop
Laying countertop to fit on the washing machine.
Frequently washing machine and dryer can be easily installed without tools as a tower, which is very dangerous. There has to be definitely a connection between two devices. In our example, countertops is placed over washer and dryer and each secured. without connecting washer and dryer, the vibration of the washing machine can cause the dryer "immigrated" and falls from the washing tower. In the worst case, not only the device this might be damaged.
What is needed is a countertop that is either sawn itself or can be purchased as a rest at the hardware store. The working plate requires a standardized depth of about 60 cm and a width, which rests on the entire surface of the washing machine. A larger width is not needed, the space saving is very useful.
For much of washing machines a work surface of 60 x 60 cm required.
secure work surface with angle on the washing machine Step 2:
attach to the bottom angle of security.The angles keep the countertop safely on the machine.
Thus the countertop holds securely on the washer and can not slip, it must be backed up. If it is larger than than the washing machine, round bars can be mounted, which looks visually very pleasing. However, to be saved a lot of space in the bathroom or laundry room, the fuse should be as narrow as possible.
It would be possible to attach simply a board on the side of the worktop and secure so simultaneously combined washer and dryer. However, this has the disadvantage that loosening its screws and thus may fall off the fuses. contrast angle provide a very good safety with very little space. The angles are perpendicularly fixed with screws in the work surface and be laterally on the forces. Thus, the screws can not be pulled out of the wood.
Whether the work surface is slightly wider or slightly smaller than the washing machine, this does not matter. The correct distance can be set with the angles. Measure this, the exact width of the washing machine and then set up the angle. The distance to the leading and trailing edges should be split about evenly.
As a washer and dryer and in almost all cases before a wall therefore can not slip backward, the work surface only has to be secured against movement forward. This can be done by an angle at the rear side. Note the distance between the machine and the wall (in blue).
Step 3: Replace fuses for the Dryer
attaching further angle to secure the dryer.
After the countertop has been backed up on the washing machine, further fixtures must be installed to stacked washer and dryer to. Also in this case brackets are used. this angle as you can see in the pictures were used from the workshop fundus. The important thing is that they are stable and the legs long enough. Here, one can be quite inventive.
As with the washing machine, the floor space of the dryer must be measured precisely for positioning the angle. but it is equally possible to provide a trial basis washer and dryer on each other to position the angle and label. After the dryer was brought back from the plate, the angles can be screwed.
Unfortunately, it is rarely possible to the established of the dryer, to secure these invisible against slipping forward. With the visible angle at the base of the dryer but you can arrange and adjust it if necessary also match the dryer.
provide washer and dryer successive Step 4:
The worktop is certainly on the washing machine and on the countertop angles were appropriate to keep the dryer. With this method, secured washer and dryer along with a countertop. Refined, cheap and above all implemented quickly. An extra connection frame, rack or cabinet is not required for this. However, the corresponding space is available, a closet can create additional storage space for detergent and fabric softener. In the example shown, the washing tower is currently being converted into a laundry room. Here, too, the gap is filled with a shelf to the wall, thus creating space for washing utensils.
As an additional safeguard a mat between washer and dryer can be placed. The anti-slip mat absorbs not only vibration, they also relieves the angle.
Tip: Process for washing machine and dryer
Dryer differ fundamentally in air dryer and condenser. Since air dryers blow the hot air into the space or need a connection to the outside wall, condenser are preferred. Here, the humidity of the laundry is collected in a container which must be emptied regularly.
What some do not know - many condenser can be connected directly to the drain pipe. Washer and dryer on each other, even the outflow of both units can be combined (clearly visible on the upper images). Frequently, the hose must therefor be removed easily, which leads the water into the collection vessel. This can be defined by a preparation in the rear wall to the outside and into the drain. The collection container never needs to be emptied again.
