    washer and dryer

    I have read several entries regarding installation of washer and dryers in Solitude 305 REs. The entries indicated they were most satisfied with Splendide brand washers and dryers. However, from the research I've done, it appears they make only stackables or combination units. My 305 have space in the front closet for a washer on the passenger side and a dryer on the driver's side. What make and models fit in that space?

    We have the Splendide stackables (they don't have to be stacked) in our 305RE.

    The stackable units can be used desperately.

    To stack them, they need a connection kit.

    Duh! Silly me. Maybe they should be labeled as "Stackables or Not". Thanks for the responses.

    We have the 369Rl but I think the bedroom setup is the same. My husband installed our washer and dryer. He said the plug is on the underside of the shelf above where the washer fits in. It is a duplex outlet but only half of ours was open. He took an exacto knife and cut out the slots and it was ready to go.
    Hope this helps!

    I believe that they set it up so you can only plug the washer or dryer into the outlet, not both as running both will surely overload the 15A breaker.

    On ours there's an electric outlet on each side of the wardrobe that only the top is open and they're wired to separate, dedicated breakers.

    Hey Dave!
    Yes you are correct on the outlet. Our washer and dryer are on the opposite sides of the closet anyway. The only reason he opened it up was so I could plug in my hair dryer!! Works great!!

    We have had our 369RL a couple of months and I'm thinking a washer/dryer combo would be really nice to have. Do you have to take out all the hanging clothes to get to it on the curbside? We are looking at the splendid. How long to wash/dry a average load? What is considered and average load?

    I'm thinking if I can do a load a day or every other day, it's better than sitting in a laundry facility.

    Any thoughts or recommendations would be appreciated.
