Sausha’s Washer/Dryer Pedestals

Submitted by TLinskey on Mon, 02/10/2014 - 06:24

After reviewing the comments I was a bit hesitant to start this project but then I realized I will build then make my own opinion. I am very happy I did because these pedestals are sooo wonderful and beautiful. This project must be built with extreme detail and everything must be square, etc to avoid any vibrations and complications. I did include extra center supports and thought of it like building a house frame.

Looks solid! Did you follow the plans? We have a samsung front load washer / dryer as well. It's not the same as yours, but we have a hard time keeping it from moving around. We have tried making it as level as possible but still have a problem. Did you find by putting it on a pedestel that you had any issues? I was thinking maybe if I did build a pedestel, I could drill or recess holes on the platform for the feet to go in to prevent it from shifting around. Let me know your thoughts, thanks.

Hello - Yes we did follow Ana's plan with some minor modifications. My suggestion would be to knotch it like a corner deck post so the 4x4's can go through the platform. If you don't understand I will happy to forward you a drawing. Just let me know. Thank you! Good luck!
