Which model washer/dryer are you getting? When we built our house last year I put my laundry room upstairs outside of my bedroom and put in two connections for a dryer, and one washer. We have our old (10+ year old) washer/dryer set in there and I really want to upgrade and get the second dryer (we're a family of 5, so we go through a LOT of laundry!!) I'm just not entirely sure what models to look at.
We got the Whirlpool Duet 9400 series in stainless steel with the pedestals. It was a$$pensive! According to consumer reports, it's a very good one and energy efficient though. Craig picked it. I was going to go with Frigidaire Affinity.
*sigh* I'm probably going to have to drop at least $3 grand to outfit my laundry room with the latest and greatest. By the time I save up for that (cause my damn camera is first!!) it'll be up to $4K! :)
