Read every part of the lease, including the rules. If there is no general prohibition against a washer or a dryer, you should be safe. If you pay for your own electricity, that shouldn't be an issue. Don't ask your landlord for permission if your lease doesn't prohibit a washer or a dryer.

By the way, "cannot" is spelled correctly. Why did you question the spelling?

: My NYC rent-stab. lease states that we cannot (sic) "make alterations" to our apt. in order to add such appliances as washer/dryers. However, we are interested in purchasing one of the new washer/dryer units that simply hook up to the sink and use very little (well, less than the old days) water and very low electricity. Therefore, "no alterations" necessary. If we get one of these, given the wording of our lease, will we be in violation of our lease? And if so, what could happen? Should we even broach the subject with our landlord? We really don't like to talk to him but we are wondering if we should in this case. LL is awful person but relatively fair with regard to actual job. But we think he'll say no just to be mean, whether he has cause or not. So we are conflicted. Please advise if you have real knowledge. Thanks, Cathy
