How to choose the right washer and dryer?

Need a new washer/dryer for your laundry room? We offer a wide range of products to better meet your requirements. Each machine has specific advantages and disadvantages and some criteria must be taken into account before acquiring this type of device.

How to choose the best washer/dryer?

· The size of the machine

The size will depend on the space you have in your laundry room. There are washers/dryers of different sizes and different layouts (stacked, side by side, etc.) to adapt to the space where they will be installed.

The capacity of the device

It is still a question of the size of the device, but more precisely of its capacity. This point depends on the amount of laundry and the washing frequency. Depending on your needs, opt for a more or less large device that can accommodate the sufficient number of clothes in one wash. However, keep in mind that a large capacity washer/dryer will automatically be more bulky.

The brand

The brand will most likely define the quality of your washer/dryer, and therefore its robustness and durability. Such an investment is expected to last for many years. This is the reason why it is strongly advised to always opt for a reputable brand.

Ergonomics

Ergonomics encompasses the installation and overall use of the device. You can install your washer/dryer yourself. An installation that is too complex can waste your time and even cause operational problems. Regarding use, it is better to choose a device that is easy to handle, without too many buttons. As long as you have the essential features, that’s the most important thing.

The price

Finally, the price is often defined by the brand and the features of each model. Compare prices and check the value for money of each device. It is better to opt for a washer/dryer that is a little more expensive, but durable, than one that is inexpensive but will require regular repairs.

Comparison between laundry appliances

Here is a comparison of the different laundry appliances available in our catalog.

The 2-in-1 combo

Thanks to this model, you benefit from saving space since the machine performs two functions in one. It is also economical, whether in terms of energy or water costs. Its installation is quick and easy, since it is not necessary to install a dryer vent. On the other hand, the complete cycle of washing and drying is less effective, being able to exceed 3 hours and a half sometimes.

The stacked laundry room

This is the stacked option that is the most economical to purchase. Its installation is also relatively simple. Its main drawback is that it is complex to repair. Your option once it is faulty is to replace it entirely in most cases.

The stacked front washer/dryer

This washer/dryer is easy to install if you have a large enough space; in tight places you will have a lot more trouble. It is much more expensive to purchase compared to a stacked machine. On the other hand, it is possible to replace only the defective device, and not the entire combo.

The side-by-side washer/dryer

This latest model offers an economical aspect, whether for purchase or for repairs. It is possible to replace only one of the two defective parts in the event of a problem without the obligation to choose an identical device. However, it takes up space and is not suitable for narrow spaces.
