Answered
Hi guys,
So I recently purchased this washer second hand for $100 but it didn’t come with the pedestal. I’m in desperate need of storage for my products. I realized that if I pushed my machine all the way to the right my detergents could fit. I just want something maybe two tiered that rolls to put my detergent.

P.S. the pedestal are not deep enough to fit my products. I also live in a NYC apartment so Im limited. Thank again

    Hope this idea helps — slim rolling cart. Good luck.

    First thought that comes to mind is to make a roll out storage unit that will fit between the washer and wall. Something like this

    I don't know if any rolling carts come that slim. The pedestals for the washers may not have deep enough drawers to be able to stand up your laundry supplies. There are slim carts that are made to go between washers and dryers, but I don't know if they are thin enough to fit in the allotted space. Perhaps you could make a shelving system like stairs to fit in the space to put your large jugs on so that you don't have to reach behind one to get to the other. You could also have them higher up so they are easier to reach rather than on the floor. Measure the width of the opening and see if you can search online at places like Bed Bath and Beyond, Walmart, Target, home improvement stores, etc. You never know, you may find something thin enough to get into the space. Just make sure the shelves are tall enough to accommodate the height of the jugs you need to store.

    Since the large containers have the dispensing spigots on them, why not store them in the Cabinet above or even a deep tiered shelf sitting on top of the unit (maybe a shoe shelf, or two for depth). I keep the bulky container in the closet and transfer to a smaller container as needed.

    If you use liquids, buy two of these:
    If you're a powder person, get this:
    In either case, they'll look nice sitting on top of the washer.

    I transfer my liquid detergent, softener into vintage bottles and Borax soap in jars and they are on the cabinet between the W&D

    From the look in the picture, the washer is slid as far to the right as it will go, and your jugs are wider than the slot on the left. One idea would be to make a thin shelving that you could put on slider/gliders and use for smaller items (cans & such). then for the top shelf, make it wider so you could put your soaps hanging over the washer, using a bracket to give extra support for them. OR, make or get a shelving that would sit on the washer towards the back, with enough room underneath to fill the cups with.

    I have my stacking machines pushed to one side. Using a slim cabinet (like those shown above) did wonders for storage. I bought mine at Hold Everything. Good luck.

    Measure the distance from the wall to the next caninet. Go to a home improvement store like Lowes and buy a standard wall cabinet and lay it on its side and set the washer on it. Depending on which way you lay it, the door will open up or down. the interior shelf will give it stability and your washer will be a more convenient height. You will still have the added space at the side, but higher. Maybe a narrow bin would fit in there. Now the washer will look 'built-in'!

    My laundry products sit in a wire basket drawer thingie. ...next to the washer. I’ve also used an old cd rack.

    Here's a couple ideas if you can't find a thin enough pull-out shelf. Those big jugs are meant to lay on their side so you can easily use the spigot to fill your lid/cup. Will they fit on their sides in the cabinet above your washer? If not, maybe the height of the inside shelf could be adjusted. Or you could get a nice placemat and add a smaller piece of rubber-like shelf liner under it (will keep the placemat in place as the washer spins and jiggles). Transfer your products into smaller bottles/jugs/whatever you like. Set them on the placemat or in a basket on the placemat. I do this and it looks very nice & neat. My smaller jugs (that I transfer my soap into) were small enough that I could cut my placemat in half. I also decorated them just a little with washi tape and the basket with coordinating ribbons. Good luck!

    Try putting casters or rollers under a cut 2x4 that fits on the side of your washer. U can screw a cabinet handle in front to help u pull it in and out.
