Here are the three most important things to consider when buying a washer and dryer: arrangement, size and features. The arrangement refers to how to washer and dryer sit next to each other and where the doors are, as in front-load vs. top-load. You can save some space if you get a stackable set, but they are often quite expensive. As for doors, more people prefer to have their washing machine be top load, since you can open it during a cycle without getting water everywhere. On the other hand, front-load washers tumble the clothes naturally, while top-load washers need the swirling agitating motion to get the clothes to tumble.
As for size, you need to consider the outside and the inside of the machine. When you measure your space, make sure to account for at least 4 extra inches for pipes and wires in the back. The capacity of the washer will determine how much clothes you can wash and dry at once. Get something with at least 5 cubic feet if you have a large family. If you’re on your own you can save energy by getting something closer to 3 cubic feet.
Picking features on a washer and dryer is purely about weighing efficiency vs. money. Is it worth a one-time payment of a few hundred extra dollars if you can get automatic steaming in your dryer? Are you comfortable with a purely time-based system or do you want a moisture sensor? Are you interested in going the extra mile and getting a smart system you can control from your phone? Every new feature adds to the price, but it’s worth it if it saves you time and money down the road.
