Are you ready for a new washing machine and dryer? If you’ve noticed that your current model is spending more spin cycles not spinning or the clothes aren’t coming out as clean as they should then perhaps this is the season when you’ll be making the upgrade. Before heading out to the appliance store you’ll want to consider the three main factors for picking the perfect washer/dryer combo for you: Space, convenience and cost.
When it comes to the question of space, your choices are really “stacked” or “side-by-side.” If you’re going with stacked then your only option would be a front-loading washer. Even if you have the space for side-by-side units you might find that stacking them can open up an area for shelves or a mini pantry. With regard to convenience, a top loading machine works best for someone who doesn’t want to be kneeling. Also, if you’ve been using a top loading washer and plan to make the switch you’ll find that you might also have to switch your detergent because you need to go for a low suds variety. Then there is the issue of cost. Most front or top loading washers cost the same but when you find a model that is more energy efficient you could find yourself spending a few extra bucks. However, that is money which will come back to you down the road in the form of lower energy bills.
Speaking of energy bills, you’ll also have the option between a gas or electric dryer. The gas choice could be a benefit if natural gas is readily available in your neck of the woods. They might cost more but are cheaper to operate than an electric dryer which could require you to run the machine longer.
To keep your washer running a peak performance levels you’ll want to clean out the water inlet screen at least once a year and replace all the rubber hoses every five years. With dryers it’s all about the lint as in cleaning up the lint trap after every couple of cycles.
Once you’ve settle on your new washer dryer combo you’ll also want to settle on the best method for removing and disposing of your old models. Hands down the best choice has got to be Junk King.
