Pinnacle washer/dryer prep pocation

We have a 2012 Pinnacle LKTS. Would like to install a washing machine. According to specs we are prepped for, it but I cannot find the hook up. Has anybody else with this model installed a washing machine?

According to your floorplan it is plumbed in the kitchen pantry. Look for a small 8 x 8 piece of paneling with a screw in it covering the wall inside and behind should be the fixtures. There should also be an outlet somewhere in the area with a white sticker saying washer/dryer. This mod will require shelf removal in the lower portion.

We have the same 35LKTS floorplan and installed a stackable Washer / Dryer
This was one of the reasons we selected the 35LKTS, in the 2011 Model year (1st year of the Pinnacle model change from the Designer), the 35LKTS was the only Pinnacle model / floorplan that would accept a Stackable W/D.

You have to remove the left side pantry wall to get to it.
It is actually pretty easy.
While I had the wall out, I checked the shower connections (found one connection was loose, but not leaking) and did a better job strapping / retaining the W/D Plumbing (as I remember it was not fastened very good)

Due to the large gap between the left cabinet wall and the outside wall, you need to remove the left side wall to put the dyer vent in anyway.

I do not remember (been a couple of years ago) if there was a access panel there or we had to cut the access hole in the wall.
I do not think there was a access panel in our Pantry Wall.
There was a access panel in our bedroom closet but no plumbing there.

We put a drain pan in too, after a little over two years of fulltime use of our W/D, it still works great, no regrets, no problems

Here is our Pinnacle 35LKTS Washer Dryer setup.

The Washing Machine is a Maytag Brand, the Dryer is a Sears Brand 120 Volt unit.

I believe both are made by Whirlpool.

The Washing Machine takes about 55 minutes to complete its cycle, the dryer takes about the same time to complete its cycle.

After a little over 2 years of regular use every week, we have had no problems.
