Establishing what you need and how much you can spend beforehand makes it easier to compare stackable washer and dryer units.
Stackable washer and dryer units take up less space and often use less energy than separate washer and dryer pairs. They’re ideal for smaller homes and apartments because of their space-saving design and can be more affordable than separate appliances. When comparing stackable washer and dryer units, there are several things to consider. Essentially, these considerations boil down to your needs and your budget.
Consider how much you want to spend and how much you can afford to spend. Keep these numbers in mind when you compare. Many homeowners get hung up on buying top of the line and inadvertently pass over units that suit their needs for less. On the other hand, sometimes the many features available can tempt a homeowner into breaking the budget. Be firm on your spending limit but also be aware you may have to sacrifice unnecessary features to find a machine in your price range.
Energy Star-rated stackable washer and dryer units are guaranteed to use less energy and water than those without this rating. Often energy-efficient units include spin cycles that extract more water, for example, which cuts down on drying time. Look for the Energy Star logo on the machines when comparing to save money down the line or if an eco-friendly unit is one of your priorities.
When comparing a stackable washer dryer unit, consider the features that will best suit your needs. Before you shop, list what you need your stackable washer and dryer to do. Look for features that work with the type and amount of laundry you do. Some units have sensor technologies that sense the size of the load and use only as much water as is needed for that size. Dryers with timers in addition to preset settings give you more flexibility in terms of how long you run a load. If you have children, you might prefer models with safety features such as child locks and sensors that stop the spin or drying cycle when the lid or door is opened. Quiet operation may be important if the unit will be placed in a high-traffic area or if you live in an apartment or duplex.
Bigger isn’t always better. When comparing stackable washer and dryer units, look for those sized to suit your needs. For example, if you wash only small loads, a large-capacity washer and dryer is unnecessary. On the other hand, if you wash heavy items frequently, a smaller capacity may not do the job. When comparing capacity, look for machines that give a cubic foot measurement instead of using general terms like “large capacity” or “extra-large capacity.”
While a stackable washer and dryer unit might come with all of the features you need and an affordable price tag, the warranty is also important. Find out what is covered by the manufacturer’s warranty and what is not. Always compare units sold by a reputable, licensed dealer. If the seller is not an approved dealer, or cannot provide you warranty information, the odds are the manufacturer will not honor the warranty. Warranties that include replacement parts and service are ideal. Some only supply the parts, leaving you to pay someone to install them.
