Make sure the dryer is mounted high enough for you to open the lid and it is not too high that you can't get clothes in & out. Apart from that enjoy the extra space :)

Want to know if I can stack a kenmore elit gas dryer on a kenmore elite washer and on top of a 10 inch pedistal or will it be too tall?

The appliances were not designed to be stacked so I would not attempt it if anything I would build a shelf (ledge) to put the dryer on, then bracket it to the wall but be careful of the height especially with a gas dryer and be sure to have plenty of space for airflow. Good luck

How do you lower the height on a LG washer and pedestal? It's too high by 1" to fit under my wall cabinets.

The pedistal has 4 leveling legs on the bottom of it you can adjust to a certain point. You may have to take the lefts off completely and if it still doesn't fit, you unfortunately didn't measure properly.

How do I connect the dryer to the pedastool?

Hello- The Pedestal (depending on the make and model) usually connects to the dryer by unscrewing the dryer legs and using the bolts that came with the pedestal to screw through the pedistal into where the dryer legs, feet, were. This should be done with the dryer laying on its side. If you didn't get instructions with the pedestal then I would contact the manufacturer and they can email them to you (different brands have different systems). Good luck and best regards.

LG front loaded washing machine vibrates during

If its on a pedistal then that will raise your center of gravity and cause the unit to be less sturdy during a spin. It could also be due to a weak floor. You may want to try a product called "shake away pads". The probably sell them at like home depot or lowes. They will run you about 40 bucks but they just go under the legs and help absorb some shock. Good luck _MJ_

I want to clean the pump filter on a Kitchenaid washing machine. Where is it located?

unplug washer remove screws under lower panel down by feet, above pedistal (if you have one) look for large hose coming out of bottom of tub there is a handle on the filter it unscrews, if you have it on a stand or pedistal put the drain hose in a pan on floor or even better if you have a wet vac you can **** out the water you wont get all of it so some a couple of towels handy would be good. put a little vasalene or greese on the o ring before put ing back together you can buy me a dounut with the change you find, enjoy

I have a fixer upper house and put in a vinyl dryer vent to the outside and now i am told that it has to be metal. I have vinyl siding. Does it really have to be metal? where can I find Laws verses...

You can find these "guidelines" at your local municipality's or county's building department.

Psst: Don't go there, just take the suggestion and replace the vent with metal, which will last longer than
the vinyl, and can be painted, if you wish, with vinyl paint to match your siding.

PS: Don't go to the zoning board or building department or you will have to thank me after much expense.
