The Kenmore 88752 is one option if you need a compact 24-inch laundry center. It has a small top-loading 1.5-cubic-foot washer and a 3.4-cubic-foot electric dryer, which can be operated simultaneously. The downside of this feature is that this unit requires a dedicated 240-volt outlet. It must also be vented to the outside. User reviews of this laundry center are mixed. Although many users like its cleaning performance and ease of use, others are frustrated by its limited capacity.
