Below you can see my new Samsung washer and dryer set. They fit pretty well in the recess in the mud room. I got them from Sears for a pretty decent price and the dudes who set them up did an efficient job.
I was worried that they wouldn't fit with the door, but as you can see from the picture below, there is about an inch or two of clearance as the door opens. I'd rather have more, but it'll work.
