September 2019

Odds are that purchases like washers and dryers aren’t ones you make regularly. Multiple years and multiple moves might separate the present from your appliance’s inaugural load. Consider how many generations of the iPhone have come and gone since you were last in the market. Even if it’s only been a few years, it’s very likely that there have been massive leaps and bounds in technology since your existing appliances were installed.

So we’re more than halfway through 2019 and you need a new washer and dryer set. Where do you start? No worries—Metro Appliances & More is here to help.

First, consider your space. If you’re replacing old units, you might already have this in mind. If you’re in the process of a move, think about what your new space will look like. For instance, if you’re looking at a narrow closet, your options are going to be on the limited side. A stackable washer and dryer unit, like the Whirlpool Electric Stacked Laundry Center, is your best bet. These units can range in size and capacity, depending on your space and your needs, without skimping on the features, including bleach dispenser, wrinkle shield, AutoDry system, and multiple drying cycles.

Another option may be the combination machines, like those from Haier, with your washing and drying occurring within the same machine. Imagine starting the washer before you leave for work and returning to a completely laundered load of clothes. This appliance is a superhero. And if there items in your laundry that can’t go in the dryer, this appliance comes with wash-only options. It is also equipped with non-vented condensing drying, allowing clothes to dry without external venting. All you need is a water hookup and a standard outlet. 

Of course, size is not the only consideration you need to make. How much laundry do you go through a week? The answer to this may be the deciding factor in whether you go for a front-load washer—which is typically the better choice for larger loads, including sheets and blankets—or a top load. Top-loaders might not be the best choice for shorter people, either, when needing to grab items off the floor of the washer.

Front-load washers tend to be packed with additional features and benefits. Take the Bosch Serie 6 Ascenta—some of the features include ActiveWater®, which adjusts the water level to complement the size of the load you’re washing to maximize efficiency.  

Then there are choices like the Electrolux Compact Washer with IQ-Touch® Controls featuring Perfect Steam, which might be the perfect choice if you have little ones who routinely come in with the marks of hard play on their clothing, as one if its features invokes steam to more effectively remove stains. If you or other members of your house are prone to allergies, this unit also includes a Deep Clean Sanitization Cycle that effectively removes 99% of bacteria and 95% of common household allergens. Like the Bosch mentioned above, it also automatically adjusts the water level to meet the load size. It’s also quiet enough to run at any time of the day.

Top-load washers definitely have their benefits, though. For one, they tend to be more cost-effective if budget is a sticking price. Many of the models available today have also removed the spinning rod from the chamber, providing more space—for one—and can handle higher speeds than their top-load predecessors, which means the dryer won’t have to run as long to get your clothes dry. There are models like the Maytag Extra-Large Capacity Washer with Deep Clean Option made for larger families, equipped with extra cleaning action to eliminate stains, as well as a sanitization cycle to address household bacteria.

On the dryer side of things, you have your options with Bosch, enabling you to match your dryer to your lifestyle. There’s the Bosch Axxis Plus®, which, in 15 minutes, can get 5 men’s dresshirts ready-to-wear. The Bosch Ascenta might better suit you if your wardrobe contains a high number of delicates, with its lower temperatures that allow for gentler drying, whereas the Bosch 800 Series Cond. Dryer can dry up to 18 towels in one load.

The Maytag Large Capacity Dryer is a great complement to a large capacity washer, with wrinkle release and delicate cycle, multiple temperature settings, and delay start among other features. The Maytag Front Load Electric Dryer with Extra Power comes equipped with advanced moisture sensing, which allows loads to be more evenly dry, as well as a quick dry cycle for when you’re racing the clock. 

These features are not exclusive to just one dryer, but each brand and model will have their highlights, enabling you to pick and choose the type that fits your lifestyle.
