What Type of Washer and Dryer is Right For You?

Choosing the right washer and dryer is an important decision for any consumer.  If you want to take care of your laundry needs in the comfort of your own home, you will need a high quality washer and dryer that is up to the task.

Front Loading Washer and Dryer

One of the latest trends in washers and dryers is the front loading washer and dryer.  While most drying machines have always been front loaders, washers were traditionally top loading machines. However, a top washer and dryer may be a thing of the past. Many consumers are opting for front loading machines because they save money and are easier to operate.  The washing machine uses less water and features a locking mechanism that prevents the door from being opened accidentally. Many consumers feel that the front loading machine cleans clothing more effectively as well.

Stackable Washer and Dryer

Individuals who live in tight spaces and need a washer and dryer that will conserve space should consider investing in a stackable washer and dryer.  This washer and dryer combination machine features a washing machine on the bottom and a tumbling dryer on top.  This machine will usually fit into a small laundry room or closet and requires a lot less room than a traditional washer and dryer because it makes good use of vertical space.  You can find a used washer and dryer to save money or invest in an energy efficient, brand new LG washer and dryer or other popular brand.

Combination Washer and Dryer

If you have a small household or you live alone and your laundry needs are not excessive, you might wish to consider investing in a washer dryer combo.  This piece of equipment is both a washing machine and a laundry dryer all wrapped up in one.  Instead of requiring two separate machines to wash clothes and then tumble them dry, this machine first washes your clothing and then drains the water and begins the drying process.  For large families or individuals with a lot of laundry, this piece of equipment is probably more trouble than it’s worth.  Because you cannot begin a new load until the first load is washed and dried, laundry tasks can take much longer.  However, if you have minimal laundry needs, this machine will allow you to start and finish one load without any work in between.
