stack front load washer/dryer between different brand

I just got a new front load washer to replace my broken one.
Amazon.com: Frigidaire FAFW3801LW FAFW3801LW Front Load Washer: Appliances

But when the sears delivery arrived, the guy said I couldn't stack my old dryer (very old one from Kenmore) to the new washer without a stacking kit, so he just left the washer in my living room without installation

I would like a suggestion how should I stack the old dryer on top of this new washer and which kind of "stacking kit" I need to get?

Thanks.

Here is your stacking kit. I don't know how they work and if your old dryer can stack on it. It may be for use with the matching dryer.

I agree with Mike, your dryer may not be "stackable". Check the width to see if it will fit on top of the new washer. Was the dryer stacked before? Was it sitting on the floor?

Would be pretty tough to reach the controls if it's the old school type with the controls on the top/back.

The old dryer will not line up with any of mounting holes. I have never seen a old dryer mounted to a new washer but I guess you could rig something up. Kit will have some rubberized tape to put on top of washer I guess you could rig brackets in back to hold it. It would be a nightmare to get repaired.

Maybe affect the warranty on the washer?
