Discover the Ultimate 5 Washers and Dryers of November, 2019 – Laundry Days Made Easy

Washer & Dryers That Won’t Make Laundry A Chore

We all need a washer and dryer in our lives, as washing the laundry can feel a bit like a never-ending task. But don’t worry, finding an appropriate washer and dryer can take a bit of the drudgery away, though.

There’s a lot to consider when buying a washer dryer combo, and there’s approximately 150 models to choose from. Depending on the size and configuration of your space, you may want a machine that is top load for comfort, front load for quick access, all-in-one for convenience, stacked for tight spaces, or under the counter. We’re here to help you make that choice.

Firstly, where are they going to live? If they need to fit in a tight space, such as in the kitchen between your refrigerator and oven, then it’s pointless getting top loaders, and if a narrow space is all that’s available, a stackable washer/dryer might be best.

One of the more important things when choosing a dryer is its capacity. As clothes tend to fluff up when drying, they expand which means you’ll need a dryer with more capacity than the washer.

  • Front Load vs Top Load

Beyond the obvious, there are some significant differences between the two styles. These distinctions will help inform your purchase, as every washing machine you’ll look at will be either front- or top-load.

Front loaders have front mounted displays, are more efficient, gentle, and have been found to clean better. Top load models have back-mounted displays and generally tend to use more water during cleaning cycles than their front load counterparts. However, they do cost less to buy initially.

  • Digital Display

Higher-end models tend to feature digital displays and a load of settings for you to select from – cooler cycles for delicates, hotter for bed linen and so on. Models at the highest end of the scale can even connect to your WiFi, thus enabling remote access.

  • Eco Friendly

Many manufacturers have made models that specialize in using less water, or electricity; these tend to be cheaper to run, although the cycles can take longer to complete, and they tend to be pricier to purchase.

So, without further ado, let’s get started.

 

1) Whirlpool Top Load Washing Machine

Overview

This space saving washing machine is perfect for holiday homes, motor homes and small apartments. It appears to be very sturdy, well made with excellent, hard wearing controls. The drum fits a full washing basket of clothes, just enough when you’re on the go. The instructions are clear and concise, with labelled diagrams and easy to follow tables.

What We Like

This washer is an amazing deal. It’s simple, easy to fit and compact, and despite the large capacity, it is surprisingly portable. With 11 options of wash/dry cycles, and a well thought out display and timer combo, our washing came out so clean, and even a grass stained pair of old jeans looked fresh, unmarked, and almost ready to wear. This is an excellent, good value washer.

What Needs Improving

The cable was a little on the short side, however this was soon fixed with an extension.
