Question about Frigidaire FLEB8200DS Top Load Stacked Washer / Dryer

Wet towels & blankets stacked on working dryer

I work at an animal clinic and we do laundry all day long. Wet towels & blankets are taken out of the washer and stacked on the dryer so the next wash load can be started. The dryer is on while the stack of heavy towels and blankets are on it. How does this affect the drying time and most importantly, what can happen to the dryer?

This won't affect drying time unless the load is so heavy it causes the cabinet to warp and disturb the door seal. If you haven't had any problem with this so far you can probably keep doing it. (The machine is designed to support the weight of a wet load in the drum, and should have some safety margin. But why not invest in a roll-around laundry cart like you find at laundromats and keep the wet load there until the dryer is clear?) You might need to be more concerned about rust starting on the top of the cabinet if the enamel is scratched, since it's not usually subjected to wet loads being piled there. You should also check your vent pipe frequently to make sure it stays clear with all the drying you do. Clogged lint screens and vent pipes will definitely lengthen drying time.

Washer Dryer Stacked Combo won't start and didn't drain properly.


Hello Joshua, thank you for your post!
From my understanding your Frigidaire laundry center is not starting and did not drain properly. It is possible that this could be a miscommunication within the laundry center and a reset may help clear that out for you. In order to reset your laundry center you would need to disconnect power from it for at least ten minutes. If that does not help your laundry center you may need to seek assistance from a professional technician for proper repairs. I hope this is helpful and if you should need further assistance please feel free to reconnect. -Matt

Can the Whirlpool Duets stack?


The simple, short answer is yes, the Whirlpool Duet washer and dryers can be stacked. You'll need to check with the Whirlpool folks to see if you'll need a stacking kit, or if they are ready to go with what you already have.

The key to stacking these Duet laundry pairs, is to have both the washer and dryer model numbers when you contact Whirlpool, so they can provide you with the stacking kit needed to mount the dryer on top of the washer. You can also check the Whirlpool web site to get a good idea of how much space is needed for a stacked set. Here's the link for the space checker, just look under the Guides and Tools on the left side and click on the Laundry Space Sizer to see what's needed.

You can also call Whirlpool at (866) 698-2538 and speak to them about your particular washer and dryer.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Spins very slow on rinse/drain and spin


Your filter &/or pump could be blocked. Remove bottom panel three screws, unscrew filter cap (have lots of towels cause it will drain), remove filter & clean out. Refit. If you have manual refer to it. Pl rate me if helped.
