If you have the space and your house layout allows it, build a concrete platform and put both front loader & dryer side by side. Never need tp bend down ever again.

But be mindful of the ventilation, as Halcyon pointed out. Don't cram them in some stuffy corner. You also need to ensure the wiring in the wall can take the electrical load of both machines.

What so difficult to bend down ? It is not like take effort to bend and load into the WM.

Even you use top loader, you still have to bend down and take the cloth from the basket and load into the WM ontop.

Unless for old people ?

Is it everyday do the laundry ?

Good suggestion. But if I want to stack up my dryer would be hard isn’t? Is it okay to put washer horizontally?

Side by side would be the best setup.

I was just answering Jence's question. He is comparing top vs front loader and said with front loaders he might have to bend down to load and unload thru the front door.

So I shared with him what I did, although in my case the elevated platform is necessary in order for the front loader door to clear the toilet seat. However I do find that having the door raised to waist level and not needing to bend down so low to load/unload is a welcome benefit.

Either way, your clothes still get washed.

simple solution would be get a stool from ikea and sit down when loading unloading.

to stack the front loader high enough so you don't need to bend, you need to put in on a table or something.

Alternatively, I use a small stool. Seated while stuffing clothes in.

How long you load the cloth into the WM?

It took me 30sec only.

how long it take to sit down & get up?

30seconds if you just dump everything in. if you put them in washer bags and separate them will take longer time.

i'm assuming your dirty clothes basket is on the floor so if you put them in bags you still have to kneel down or sit down. you can put the dirty basket on some table and do everything on table but i would assume it's the same table you will use to sort out your cleaned clothes. whistling.gif

a stool can be used on multiple occasions, not just for loading clothes. if your washer is in toilet, the same stool can be used to sit when you wash your shoe or clothes manually.

if in kitchen, you can sit down when washing vege or making chilli padi. unless you do that on the table.

Even you stuff into washer bag, just pickup from the basket and stuff inside the bag, zip it and throw into the WM. My hand is long enough to throw into the WM with stand up. Don't need to bend at all. The only bending action is pick the cloth from the basket.

I have experience top loader and current front loader. I don't see it as problem or difficult or any issue at all.

I think the bending problem is mostly for the tall guy.

i don't know how tall your dirty clothes basket is or whether you put it on the table but to pick up clothes and stuff in bag you prolly need to bend down. if you stuff them all in 1 bag sure you just need to do it once but if you separate clothes, delicate, socks etc it'd take few ups & downs that i rather sit on floor or a stool.

Dirty clothes basket is 600mm on the floor. My hand have to dig till the floor level. Pick the cloth and throw inside the WM is only 30sec. Took me 3 bend to pick the cloth if alot.

If require separate wash bag, take out the cloth, put aside ontop the WM. Put inside the bag, zip it and throw inside the WM. You don't require to bend.

If you take a stool and sit down slowly separate, it just slow down the job. Than I understand you will have to take a long time to finish the load.

Yes, for a washer dryer. It's condensing the moisture present in the clothes which needs to drain out. To be sure check the manual.

For a condenser dryer or the more efficient heat pump dryer, there is a storage cassette which needs to be emptied out or optionally the drain pipe in which case what you describe should happen.

For a vented dryer, the hot moisture laden air needs to be vented out which means it would be placed in a balcony or ducted to a vent to the outside.

Anyone here using Beko washer / dryer mdeol WDX8543130W ? Seems this brand is not very well known here. Price is competitive.

There is another type, gas dryer. Using heat from flame combustion to dry off the cloth. Not common in Malaysia household but more for commercial/industrial use. In the US, gas dryer is very common since it uses less electrical energy. Workflow similar to the conventional vented dryer. Instead depending on heater element only, flame is produced to speed up the drying process. Result : Quick drying process, save water and save electricity. I found only one brand that brings in gas dryer to Malaysian household market, and only selected store selling it.
