What are the best washer and dryer combo sets?
There are a lot of different styles of washer and dryer sets on the market, and the combo you settle on will be highly dependent on your needs. There are a few main things you need to think about when it comes to selecting the best washer and dryer set for you, however.
- Top or front loading? If you’d rather not bend down to do your washing, a top-loading washer and dryer could be the best fit for your home. In addition to their convenience factor, top loaders can also keep curious children and pets at bay.
- Stackable or side by side? Many choose to stack their appliances on top of each other to save space, but it's not the only benefit these sets offer. Stackable washers and dryers can also lessen the amount of bending over you'll need to do and make transferring clothes from the washer to the dryer a breeze.
- Large or small capacity? While smaller capacity washer and dryers tend to be far more cost-efficient and will serve just fine for smaller households, those with larger families may find that large-capacity washer and dryers are more economical in the long run.
- Gas or electric? If you're able to shell out the extra dough that a gas dryer may require and have the capacity to add a vent to your laundry room (a necessity for all gas appliances), this option save you both time and money in the long run, thanks to its shorter drying times and lower upkeep costs.
- Basic or smart technology? If the idea of operating your washer and dryer wirelessly via your smartphone is appealing to you, you may want to look into a smart washer and dryer. There are also a few other added perks, including special doors for forgotten laundry while a machine is in operation.
