Washer&dryer without the hookups. Can I still use them?

Found the condo of my dreams except for one huge deal-breaker: No washer and dryer hookups! Is there anything I can do to get a washer & dryer into the condo?

The condo is in my price range and contains everything I want. Save, hookups for a washer and dryer. I'd also assume there's not a normal electrical outlet for a dryer, whatever that means. Assume I'm a n00b when it comes to houses (first-time homeowner in the making). I am over the coin-operated thing and refuse anything less if I'm buying the place. So, I'm looking for any ideas or thoughts of how to get a washer and dryer setup.
I've heard about apartment-style stacking units that don't require the normal washer & dryer hookups. Does anyone have personal experience with these? Are they worth it?
Secondly, the master bedroom has a sink off to the side that I really wouldn't need (there's a full bathroom about 10 steps away). Financially and logistically speaking, would it make sense to remove the sink and install a washer & dryer setup?
I'm looking for any ideas on how to get a washer and dryer into a condo not made for them and any personal experiences with my situation- if what I'm asking is even feasible. Thanks!
