Tansel Stainless Steel Pull Out Storage

Reduce laundry clutter and add storage under the sink. These wire (stainless steel) baskets are great for damp areas because they won't rust. It's an easy DIY project so no need for full scale renos. More laundry storage tips here...

I love the idea of raised washer & dryer with drawers underneath, with my bad back & arthritis. My major concern is: what happens when either need repairs? How does the repair person move them out for access? Washers weigh 90 kg or more. They won’t just slide out. You would have to sit them on mighty strong slide out panels that won’t collapse when they are pulled out. Does anyone know of a solution?

@Linnie Dawes: Be careful. Some manufacturers such as Miele will not warrant their products if you stack the washing machine and dryer on top of joinery. Check installation and warranty information before you do it.
