Best ADA Compliant Washers and Dryers of 2020
Nearly one in five Americans is differently abled. In order to cater to the necessities of this population, the US Federal government enacted standards for washers and dryers to qualify for compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). To wit, a top loading unit must have a maximum height of 36 inches from the floor while the bottom of the door of a front-loading unit must have a minimum height of 15 inches from the floor. In order to be more inclusive, an increasing amount of companies are producing ADA compliant laundry machines. The following list will help you determine the best ADA washer and dryer of 2020 that’s right for you.
Maytag is a name known in the laundry appliance industry for producing quality washers and dryers. This front load washer sports 4.5 cu ft of capacity within its stainless steel drum. It also features 10 wash cycles, such as Heavy Duty, Bulky Items, and Towels, ensuring you can properly wash anything you throw into it.
You will get an option to perform a 12-hour fresh spin, along with the use of an internal heater for greater cleaning effectiveness. What's even more impressive is its extra power button, which activates dual-temperature washing. This is a feature that will get out even the most persistent stains when in any wash cycle, hot or cold. This is because some stains come out better in cold water, whereas others will get cleaned more effectively in hot water.
Maytag's companion with the washer above is this electric dryer. This smart dryer features a large capacity of 7.3 cu ft, as well as five temperature settings, and 14 dry cycles. These include Towels, Quick Dry, Jeans, Delicates, and Heavy Duty. It also has a steam cycle, giving your apparel back to you wrinkle-free. Speaking of wrinkles, it even has a special wrinkle prevention option. What this feature does it take your load through a process of intermittent tumbling, which helps avoid those unpleasant wrinkles.
The stainless steel drum will sanitize itself as well, using extra hot water to kill off any bacteria that have overstayed their welcome.
Switching gears to another great washer and dryer company, Whirlpool has a new ADA compliant washer with 4.3 cu ft of capacity in its stainless steel wash basket. There are highly-intuitive controls on this washer, helping you choose the best cycle combination for your load. You even have the ability to customize up to 35 of your own cycles.
Besides the usual wash options, you also have the ability to pre-soak your laundry, as well as perform a quick wash cycle that will clean your lightly-soiled clothes in as little as 15 minutes.
The partner of the previous washer is this dryer with a spacious capacity of 7.4 cu ft, which will handle big loads of wet laundry that can include things like bulky comforters.
There is a special sensor that will identify whether there is any moisture left in your loads. Forget about post-drying wrinkles when you use the Wrinkle Shield option available on this dryer. With additional intuitive controls, properly drying a load becomes a breeze. You are guided by the dryer to programming the best cycle for your specific needs.
Moving along to yet another trusted name in laundry appliances, this GE front load washer offers plenty of space in its 4.5 cu ft of capacity. This unit comes with a time saving option that can cut up to 20% off the time typically spent washing a load.
With 10 washing cycles, including Sanitize, Steam, and others, you get enough options to efficiently clean textiles both durable and delicate. The steaming option gets deep into fabric fibers to clean them, without damaging them.
A stark departure from the other dryers on this list, this one requires a natural gas line to operate. It has a huge capacity of 7.5 cu ft within its drum, ensuring you can get lots of clothes dried in just one cycle.
A special sensor dries out your load to perfection and keeps it looking sharp. The dryer continually monitors the temperature with a sensor bar that measures moisture to prevent clothes from drying out too much. With 10 cycles, such as Cottons, Air Fluff, and Towels/Sheets, and four different temperature modes, you can get the ideal level of dryness for your clothes and bedding.
This 4.5 cu ft capacity washer with a special PowerWash system gives you more cleaning power than you would normally get. Combined with the internal heater, you are going to be very satisfied with the clean of anything you put into this washer.
If you just have a small load, you can use the included dry cycle. This washer can perform a quick wash, followed by fanning and intermittent tumbling to dry out the clothes overnight.
This spacious dryer features 7.4 cu ft of room for larger loads. This unit uses a PowerDry system, enabling heat and airflow to dry even the densest loads quickly. The Advanced Moisture Sensing will ensure the heat penetrates your load thoroughly, leaving laundry completely dry.
The stainless steel drum is smooth and gentle on your clothes. It also provides delicate tumbling action to keep your clothes in as good of a shape as when you placed them into the dryer.
Another powerful washing unit with 4.5 cu ft of capacity, this model also has some unique options. There is the TumbleFresh setting, which rolls your load around from time to time while it stays in the washer, waiting for you to take it out, preventing wrinkles. There is also the ColorLast cycle, which adjusts how your clothes gets washed and for how long, using gentle temperatures to keep vividly hued fabrics from fading.
You also get a pre-soak option, steam clean option, and a cycle designed to sanitize your load using high heat.
Yet another voluminous unit with 7.4 cu ft of capacity, this gas dryer will dry even the bulkiest items. The advanced moisture sensing system monitors moisture levels within the drum in order to ensure your load is completely dry.
An intelligent feature of this dryer is the ability to store the cycle settings you used on your previous wash, allowing you to spend less time fiddling with the settings to start your drying cycle.
