My daughter and myself both have the 24 inch whirpool piggyback wash and dryer combo. It is perfect for small spaces, and has worked like a trooper for 8 years with 1 or two minor repairs.
My daughter bought a used one, and except for the patience she needed when her dryer wouldnt work properly, once it got fixed it too, has served her well. There is definitely a market for these space saving appliances!
