The Best-Selling Washers and Dryers Put Through Their Paces!

People don’t dream of buying a washer and a dryer, and yet we all need them. At its worst, laundry can feel like a never ending cycle of wash, dry, fold, put away and then you’re starting all over again. A good washer & dryer can take a bit of the drudgery away.

There’s a lot to consider when buying a washer dryer combo, and there’s approximately 150 models to choose from. Should you get top load, front load, all-in-one, stacked, under the counter…but we’re here to help.

Firstly, where are they going to live? If they need to fit under the counter, then it’s pointless getting top loaders, or if a narrow space is all that’s available, a stackable washer/dryer might be best. Standard washers are usually 27 or 27.5 inches wide. Their capacities range from 3.1 to 6.2 cubic feet. The majority are between 3.5 and 4.6 cubic feet.

Capacity is important when choosing a dryer as well. As clothes tend to fluff up when drying, they take up more space, and 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, but pricier to purchase.

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

This is our honest review of the best cheap washer dryer sets of March, 2019:

2) Equator Washer Dryer


This washer/dryer combo is perfect for saving space. With features including convertible venting and condensed drying, our clothes came out as good as new. This is ideal for the home or if you travel and need to wash your clothes while on the go.

What We Like

The efficiency of this 13lb load capacity machine is impressive – the wash cycles are fast and the dryer works without a hitch. This machine is fitted with a nice LED control panel that’s easy to use. We also give it extra points for having noise reduction technology, great if you need to run the machine at night.

What Needs Improving

Considering it’s a compact design we do wish the machine was a little lighter to make it more portable, but that’s minor.

9.5Expert Score

3) Magic Chef Compact Electric


This compact dryer is great for even the smallest space, and comes with all the necessary attachments. The instruction manual is simple to follow, and the product arrived well packaged, with plenty of protection.


What We Like

We like the fact that this dries clothes very rapidly ensuring that even in the worst weather, our clothes can be dry and warm, quickly and easily. It’s a great size for a condo but will also go well in any kitchen space and can be plugged in anywhere. You can even stack it if necessary, with no hassle or worries, and it’ll easily take bedlinen, towels and more with no complaints.

What Needs Improving

If you have a full load of bedlinen or towels it can take a little while to dry completely, but just factor that in, and it’s not a problem.

4) Speed Queen Top Load Washer


This Speed Queen top loading washer means business – it’s solid, clean lined and large. The instructions are minimal, but to be honest, that doesn’t matter as it’s so simple to use.

It is a little on the pricey side, but having Free Delivery is a definite bonus!

What We Like

This no-fuss machine has no high tech gadgets or complex locking mechanisms to go wrong, has an agitator to clean efficiently and uses hot water from the tap. Consequently, the cycles are quick and energy efficient.

It seems to require less water than other washers, and the clothes still come out clean and fresh smelling.

What Needs Improving

The only issues we have found is that on the cycle for delicates, there is often some water left in the bottom of the drum. But with a little planning, it’s no issue.

9.6Expert Score
The Final Verdict

Speed Queen have made a fantastic, no nonsense washer, and with the free delivery, the price isn’t so bad.

5) Panda Compact Dryer


This is a really compact and light weight dryer, perfect for apartments, and smaller rooms. It even has a wall mounting kit if you prefer. The door is large for rapid filling and emptying, and it’s very simple to use.

The instructions are not that clear, but it’s easy to figure out how the Panda works.

What We Like

We love the change of spin direction whilst its drying clothes, meaning that there are far fewer creases and in most cases, no need to iron – perfect! The Panda isn’t heavy on electricity either, so whilst it hasn’t a huge capacity, you can afford to run it more frequently.

What Needs Improving

Being so low, it would be more comfortable if it could be placed on a table, so hanging it on the wall makes perfect sense, if you can do that.

8.9Expert Score
The Final Verdict

This is a neat little dryer, perfect if you are short of space. It works well within its size restrictions, meaning that sometimes a larger load needs to be split, or it takes slightly longer to dry than a larger model. But being cheap to run compensates for this issue.
