I would not recommend stacking one machine directly on top of another. there are various issues with weight, and movement due to vibration.
what you can do is built a solid "workbench" that you can fit one machine under, and then put the other machine on top of the "bench"
personally i would overbuild the bench, using 2" by 1" wood for the frame, braced and bolted to the wall for stability, and use a 1"thick worktop forv the top of the unit. on the top surface, i would also put a 3/8" wooden beading strip about 1/2" fron the outside edges of the worktop to stop the machine moving with vibration and falling off.
i have done this a number of times when space is limited, although i find it much easier to put tehr dryer on the top as it is the lightest of the 2 units.

hope this helps

To whom it may concern hello I have bosch washing machine was32794 , 1-can I use bleach?may be it damage the machine? 2-how can I distinguish the weight of cloths is more than the capacity of machine?...


Yes, you can use bleach -- about 1/2 cup oer load -- or more if specified in owner's manual.

The machine could handle easily one full laundry basket -- see below.


  • Capacity of typical Laundry Basket = 6 kg (dry weight)


Calculation: [(36 cm x 51 cm x 26 cm) / 28317 cubic cm] x 3.5 kg = 5.9 kg

Hi i want to know that a waight of 6 kg washing maching is a small one for cloths or it is ok . should i go for more than 6 kg. for 4-5 persons family. thanks.i just choose a whirlpool compact model of...


Your question is not easy to answer. An average washing machine is 8 kg. The smaller 6 kg will use less water and detergent, but you will be limited to 4 or 5 pair of jeans at one time...unless your children are small. A front loading machine may be a better choice for you. It can do very large loads, 12 kg, and still use less water and detergent than most top loaders, but be prepared to pay three times the price of a top loader.

Can i stack the Bosch front load washer with a kenmore elite front load dryer


There is no stack kit to do what you propose. That said, you may be able to construct a compartment on top of one unit to accept the other.
