so, here we are to help you buy the best washer dryer, including features to favor and which model is best for your needs.

Types of Washer Dryer

Side-by-Side

As the name suggests, Washer and dryer are two separate machines kept next to each other. Although this set up requires more space, it has its own advantages.

Firstly the large size. If your daily need is of a large load then this is a good option as these types of washer dryers are typically large in size.

Apart from size, these machines offer ease of operations also as they require no awkward reaching out, simple transfer load to the side.

If you chose a front-loading washer dryer combo the space on top can be used as laundry sorting and folding station. These washer dryer combs can easily be set up under the kitchen counter also.

Stackable Washer and Dryer

again as the name suggests these machines go on top of each other. tipically the washer at the bottom and dryer at the top.

This kind of set requires a stacking kit, which will add to the total cost. so you nee to keep that in mind when budgeting for a washer and dryer of this type.

This kind of set can only work with a front loading machine.

However when seting up a stackable washer dry do keep in ind that he dryer setting or control panel should not be too high for operations.

a stackable washer dryer is ideal for home with limited space where size is not comprimised.

Apartment-size Washer and Dryer

these type of machines are compact in size and most suitable for people living in apartments s or condo, because this requires limited space and does the same job.

Typically these washer dryers are not as deep as other machines so depending on space in your home once and choose the right machine.

Further these machines can be stacked using stacking kit to limit the space requirement.

Washer and Dryer Combo

A very popular choice in Europe and East Asian countries. They are a single machine with both washer and dryer features in one drum. So no manual intervention of transferring load from washer to dryer is required.

This is a very practical choice as these machines are efficient, versatile, and compact in size. Nowadays there are many models that are Wi-Fi enabled so laundry can be done from anywhere.

Many size options are also availble in india to choose from in this segment.

Types of Dryers

No w dryeres are of two types Gas dryeres and Elecgtric Dryers.

How to choose the right washer dryer for your home?

Size Matters

A come mistake made by a number of people is miscalculations the siz enad space required to set up a washer dryer. It is important to measure ought the space allocated for laundry in your home. The standars size for a washer dryer in India is around 22-25 inches wide.

However the dept depends on the capacity of the machines. If you have limited space or you are trying find in a washer dryer in the dry balcony of your apartment do keep these measurement in mind.

Add a few inches in all side for movement and ventiltion.

Capacity

Now the capacity of a washer dryer depends on the size of a family. An 8 kg washer dryer is enough for a family of 6-8 members.

This size machine can easily accommodate a double duvet.

Choosing the right size for your home is important as if you choose a big size them you will be doing laundry less frequently hence save on electric bills.

However, if the size is too big then you will not be able to use it to its full capacity hence wastage of water and electricity.

Also, keep in mind when using the dryer there should be enough space for clothes to move around for less creasing.

Warranty

All brands have their own warranty period depending on the product we choose. It’s nice to be associated with a brand that is confident about its product and cares for us.

Let’s face it, all appliances are not 100% perfect there is also room for error and we don’t was to be stuck with a product with even a minor error and go through the hassle of finding a mechanic and getting it to repair on our own.

Features

Smart Sensor

Nowadays many brands have come up with many smart features to detect the laundry load and type. These sensors are designed to wash at the most optimum setting to reduce water and electric consumption, hence making them environmentally friendly as well.

A few such as features are ActiveWater, Eco Hybrid Technology or AI DD Technology, their specially designed sensors choose the right water level and wash program depending on clothes for optimum washing and energy saving.

Auto Dry Technology uses sensors to detect the moisture level in clothes for best drying without damaging clothes. It regulates heat according to the type of fabric.

Noise Levels

AntiVibration Design, EcoSilence Drive Motor, and Silent-Tech are few technologies used by washer dryer manufacturers to keep the noise and vibrations levels to a minimum for no disturbance laundry; even at night.

Steam

Additionally, they sterilize clothes to remove bacteria, dust mites, pet & pollen allergen. Ideal for families with babies or people with allergies.

Stainless Steel Drum

Stainless Steel Drum are rustproof and have a longer life. Unlike the porcelain coated drum these stainless steel drum do not chip or crack.

Porcelain drums also tend to absorb odour like plastic drums, hence, in the long run, you face problem due to odour and lack of freshness.

Additionally, stainless steel drum holds better at higher RPM so more durable as compared to the porcelain drum.

Self Cleaning Option

This is an important feature and cannot be ignored. If we are looking for a machine with the least human intervention then this is a very valid point to consider.

The self-cleaning feature or the tub clean function cleans the drum off any residual detergent or scale built up due to hard water supply. Additionally, if also sterilizes the drum after every wash for long-lasting performance.

RPM

RPM or the revolutions per minute is the number of times the drum will rotate in a minute . Thus a washer dryer of 1400 RPM will rotate1400 times in a minute. This faster rotation ensures faster drying of clothes in short period of time. Hence savings on electric bills.

Drying Technology

There are multiple sensors designed and installed in dryers to ensure safe drying. These sensors such as Auto Dry Technology automatically detects the moisture level in clothes and adjusts the machine for best drying without damaging clothes.

It regulates heat according to the type of fabric to reduce damage.

Crease Care is another feature that helps in reducing the ironing effort. After completion of the wash and dry cycle, the drum moves in slow motion to smooth out clothes and reduce the crease formation.

Reload Function

Now, this is a very relevant function, believe it or not we all forget that one last sock to put in the washer dryer.

In the case of a top-loader machine it’s really not that complicated, however, in a front loader machine you don’t have that option in most of the machines.

There are a few brands like Bosch that offer this feature. Early in the cycle, you can open the door to add that one last piece of laundry.

Smart Feautues

Who wouldn’t want a smart machine which you can operate through your IOS and android phone? Fancy Hmmm.

These smart features not only allow you to operate your machine from far, but they also help you diagnose error and other technical faults. With this smart feature operated through an app, you can troubleshoot many errors yourself.

Thus saving you time and effort and of course money. Who would want to want for the technician to come and resolve the problem when you can do it yourself.

Drum Motion Technology

6 motion Control Technology or VarioDrum are a few features designed to give the best in class washing without any wear and tear or damage to the fabric.

These technologies move the drum in multiply directions and have tiny holes set deeply in the drum to eliminate any fabric snag during the washing/drying cycle.

These digital panels are waterproof and thave multiple programs to choose from. Many have customized they wash program as per Indian users need such as a saree wash feature.

Flexibility

Now, this may not be very important at the moment however, some washer dryers have the option of adding in another small section of washer dryer at the bottom of the machine later in case of need.

This is a feature you can consider if in future you anticipate an increase in laundry load and instead of replacing the whole unit you can just add in a small set to increase the capacity.
