I need to find a set with the European style front loading "porthole" doors, and the dryer needs to be gas (and then converted to propane). They don't need to be large capacity or anything like that. Small is fine, just so long as they stack and meet the above criteria. Anyone have an idea where to start looking?

** front loading set with "porthole" doors **

Both washer AND dryer doors???

If you don't actually need the dryer to have a "porthole" door, this "laundry center" (permanently stacked washer/dryer) is front loading with glass door and the dryer gas:

If the dryer must also have a glass door, the following gas dryers can be stacked on top of their matching front-load washer using the 'stacking kit' accessory which is supplied with the dryer.

Thanks for the links - I found a GE set also, and a good maytag washer with an electric dryer. I contacted Maytag to find out why they dont have a small gas dryer, and as part of the reply they mentioned that their electric dryer was just as efficient as a gas dryer. Now, without getting the figures and working it out I can't verify that, but I started to wonder if, on these compact models, the efficiency of both types is similar?

Which "compact" models? I thought you were asking for full-sized appliances???

I'm afraid I do not know the exact energy usage comparison between gas and electric dryers. I've always heard that gas dryers are cheaper to run but that might depend on the cost of electricity and gas wherever you are.

I did say "small is fine" and that I'm not needing large ones. Most people using stacked or stackables are try to save space anyway. I'll get the figures and do the math on this one.
