Top 5 Washer Dryer Combo Machines for 2021

Top 5 Washer Dryer Combo Machines for 2021

One of the most rare modern laundry appliances on the market is the washer dryer combo unit.

This unique all-in-one washer dryer performs on both sides in the laundry game, with the tools to both clean your clothing in water, and then extract that water and use heat to dry them. There are some drawbacks, of course, as the drying cycle simply cannot reach the heating efficiency of a full-size dryer. But these combination washer dryer units are still around, because not everyone has either the floorspace for separate washers and dryers nor the ceiling height requirements needed for a stacked laundry pair. It is those people we hope to reach with this comparison article in which Appliances Connection’s experts try to contrast these machines to find which is the best washer dryer combo. To this end, we’re using a point system in the following basic categories

  • Price -
  • Features -

So if you can’t spare the space, but still want quality laundry results, take a gander at these combo units…

RELATED QUESTIONS

Are combo washer dryers any good?

While the washer aspect of this kind of machine works just as well as a standalone washer unit, the dryer cycle rarely compares with the efficiency of a standalone dryer.

Is there a washer and dryer in one machine?

As you have seen above, certainly. It’s a fairly rare configuration, but we do carry a full line of these units here: https://www.appliancesconnection.com/washer-dryer-combos.html.

Are washer dryers worth buying?

For many people, yes, because they simply do not have the room or floorspace to spend on freestanding washer and dryer units, even when stacked.
