Can't y'all see, we all need them to the Laundry Day Stuff, we have them since Ambitions, Town Life Stuff, and University Life! If we don't have them, guess what? I'm about to be extremely upset and disappointed as heck!

    We're getting front load instead, which will be stackable so they can work in smaller areas (you could stack them in a closet if you're in an apartment; many newer apartments are provding in unit laundry rather than a laundry room that they have to do the upkeep). Or if you put them side by side you could stack things on top of them (the stacked folded shirts that came with GTW, for example, or if we're getting a detergent box clutter item.

    the practical part of a fron load say you have your sims living in an appartment and there not much room you can stack the washer dryer in the kitchen or the bathroom even if i would love a top load for my sims sometime you have to accept the content that comes with the game @12JEREMIA

    That's OK! I will wait until the new pack comes when there's top load washers!

    @12JEREMIA you should look at this pos where they show the washer dryers from a tweet from SimGuruGraham http://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/926274/new-washing-machine-colors#latest

    Those are nice washers and dryers. I'm wondering do the basic ones match any and all cabinet/counters in the game? Maxis has a bad habit of not matching base game counter tops, bases and appliances.

    I'm not all that keen on the colors. Pink is a flashback to the 1950s. Orange is just atrocious and my least favorite color of all colors. But, I'm very happy to have the machines, front loading or otherwise. I'll just have to make them fit into my decor. I predict I will have many a back laundry room, out of sight, more or less. LOL

    Yeah, I'm likely to do that as well; if Seasons is on the drawing board yet maybe there will be features to turn it into a mud room of some sort. Don't have much of a use for mud/snow rooms here, but I've seen some nice ones on home improvement shows so it would be fun to recreate some of those. I suppose I could put a locker in the back room and Sims can change their clothes there.

    I think the colors are so you can have more of a fun type of laundry room rather than just blah white/grey and stuff. Also ties in with a lot of the current brights in the game already.

    AFAIK there are only front loaders in the pack, so don't hold your breath waiting for top loaders.

    You can stack the washer and dryer onto each other.

    Top loaded washers are so 1952.

    i prefer front load
  • friendlysimmersfriendlysimmers Posts: 5,464 Member
    my main choice might of been top load washer but I accept the front load washer dryer set makes sims homes more modern and its also a big plus if you have sims living in an apartment you can stack the set same if you eidt modify a log cabin to add toddler bedrooms or decide to build a future laundry room and @12JEREMIA if you went a top load washer I am sure in du time site like mods the sims will make some when the sp comes out

    They're handy for some things; I know crafters who have an old topload washer to use for felting wool for knit/crochet projects. But for standard washing front-loaders are becoming the standard because they're often more efficient, plus the ability to stack them and save space.
