Consider the space and layout of your laundry room. Some homes are set up for a side-by-side washer and dryer configuration, while others are set up for a stacked washer-dryer set.
Use a tape measure to determine the length and the width of the space where you will keep your washer and dryer. This will help ensure that you rent a laundry set that fits. Most standard washer-dryer models are about 25 to 28 inches wide each. Most stacked models are about 24 inches wide and range from 70 to 75 inches high.
Before you rent, make sure your selected washer and dryer can clear doorways, hallways and other points of entry that will be used to deliver your laundry set.

Standard dryer installation must include dryer exhaust duct, electrical cord as well as gas line. Gas shutoff is required directly behind the appliance. Hot and cold water lines are required for washers. Water valves (hot and cold) must be corrosive free and within 5 ft. of hookup. All hookups in the home must be up to date and standard. We may not be able to connect the appliance if the gas valve or water valves are not updated. For washing machine installation a drain that is at least 39″ in height is required.
