What is wrong with this picture?

When we moved into this house 6 years ago, I had to put up with this. The washer is where the dryer should be and vice-versa. GRRRR We tried to change them out but the brainiacs who did the plumbing didn't think about where the washer should be. So every time I wash, I have to deal with the doors bumping into each other, getting caught and not being able to easily transfer the wet clothes to the dryer. Sigh.

  1. Oh man, that would drive me bonkers, too! It's too bad they don't have reversible doors!

  2. Aww...can see how frustrating it is to do laundry with the machines all in the wrong places.. It would certainly be costly to redo all the plumbing or get machines that doors open the other way around.

  3. Oh that would drive me bonkers. I currently am driven nutty because my dryer is on a non insulated mud room area while my washer is inside. Walking through dining room, kitchen then to mud room with wet, heavy laundry in a basket is no fun. This picture does make me giggle a bit too, Happy WW!

  4. I think you can change the doors so they open the other way. *nodding* (this can be done on lots of models)

  6. Oh yes, I can see how that can get frustrating. Bumping into both of the doors probably causes lots of obstructed back-n-forth, so you can't just easily move the wet clothes to the dryer. I have no idea what I would do. Probably just dump all the wet clothes in a basket and then move that basket over to the dryer and then shake out each piece of clothing separately before I stick it into the dryer. But that still requires more work than is needed. At least one of the doors should be made so that it can be reversed, but I have no idea if that's standard.

  7. Ack! That would drive me nuts! I assume the previous owners did not have a front loading washer and didn't consider it. :(

  8. That can really get on your nerves and be such a big inconvenience. Maybe some day this will change! I hope your doors do not get damaged!

  9. I feel your pain. The setup in the house we're in now is the same way. I thought we'd be able to just change the orientation of the doors on the washer and dryer, but that didn't work, either. And yes, it's a pain!
