Home Maintenance How to Connect the Whirlpool Stackable Duet Washer and Dryer The design of the Whirlpool stackable Duet washer and dryer allows you to install the set side-by-side or place the dryer on top of the washer to save space in the laundry room. Even though you can stack the dryer on top of the washer, you must obtain a separate stacking kit to ensure the dryer stays on top of the washer regardless of the amount of vibration created during the wash cycle. The kit fits the slots and screw holes on the back of the washer and dryer, so they connect together. Raise the self-leveling rear legs about 3 to 4 inches off the floor. Lower the washer slowly back to the floor. Recheck the washer from back to front and from side to side with the level.
