How to Find Accurate Stackable Washer and Dryer Reviews

It is important to remember some stackable washer and dryer reviews left by other people may not always be accurate. For example, someone receives poor customer service or has their order delayed, and when the new laundry pairs are delivered, they are damaged. Because of their bad customer service experience, they might give a negative review about the brand of machines they purchased, even though this has nothing to do with how the laundry pair operates and performs.

In another case, there may be new technologies on the machines which a person is unfamiliar with, so since they do not fully understand how they function, they write negative stackable washer and dryer reviews. Many modern LG models use ventless drying technologies. This feature is different from the conventional drying most people are used to in their dryers. Ventless drying tends to take slightly longer, depending upon the size of the load, but use less electricity to dry clothes than a conventional model.

By educating yourself about these new technologies and how they function, you can learn how to read in between the lines when looking at reviews left by other people. In addition, do not be afraid to ask questions of your laundry supplier if you cannot find answers online. They are familiar with all the brands they carry and how each one operates. Lastly, while it is possible to find accurate customer reviews, you should also look for reviews created by companies and organizations that test the machines, to round out your research.

Tips for Pairing Washer and Dryer Sets

Take the time to match washer and dryer sets’ capacities whenever you are shopping for new laundry pairs. With many washers and dryers looking the same these days, it is easy to mess up capacities and which models are meant to go with one another. For example, you might want the features or options found on a particular washer or dryer. However, you do not need these additional options on the suggested matching model. In order to match appliances, simply read the load capacity specifications on the suggested matching appliance. Use this information to verify it is the same on the washer or dryer you ultimately select.

In addition, the amount of space you have available in your home should be used to select the size of the laundry pair. Prior to starting your shopping, take the time to measure the area where you intend to install the washer and dryer sets. If you are planning on placing the appliances side-by-side, remember to include side clearances of at least 1 inch on each side in the total width amount, and 4 inches of clearance behind the appliances. Appliances look much smaller in showrooms than they do after they arrive at your home. The measurements are also useful when shopping online and ordering your appliances direct.

If you discover you lack the sufficient width for installing the appliances next to each other, you are able to stack certain models. You will need a stacking kit, as this ensures the dryer is securely attached on top the washer and prevents it from falling off. Let your appliance supplier know you need a stack kit when you order your new laundry pair.  

Find the Right Stackable Washer and Dryer by Reading Reviews

You may want to take the time to read reviews prior to picking out a new stackable washer and dryer for your home. If it has been a while since your last new laundry appliance purchase, there have been numerous improvements in technology resulting in new features and options on modern machines. Discovering what these are and how they could benefit you may have an impact on your purchasing decision.

There are differences in stackable washer and dryer models which the reviews may not always include. For instance, one model may have the both appliances as a single piece design, where the washer is a top loader and the dryer is secured above it. Then there are other models that are separate appliances to give you the freedom and flexibility to stack or set the machines side-by-side if you have the extra space in your home.

For example, the LG 24 inch compact washer and dryer reviews agree this set is an idea whose time has come. You are free to set the machines side-by-side, or place the dryer on top of the washer. One of the best features is the ventless drying which eliminates dryer vents. The appliances provide space-saving and energy-conserving efficiency, such as using approximately 9.3 gallons of water for full wash loads. The pair includes smart technology, like a sensor drying system, LoDecibel™ Quite Operation and precise temperature control, to give you one of the most energy-efficient laundry sets on the market today.

Is a Washer-and-Dryer-in-One Right for Me?

One common question people have about a washer and dryer in one is whether this is the best laundry solution for their home. In order to help you decide, it is worthwhile to consider your current laundry habits and if you are able to adjust these. If you currently do all of your laundry on a single day, could you instead do one load per day over the course of several days? The cycle times are about the same as if you had washed and dried the clothes in separate appliances, and they range from 2 ½ to 3 hours. However, a combination model performs both washing and drying functions in the same machine, so you are unable to start a new load until the current one is finished.

Do you want the freedom to go off and do other things while your clothes wash and dry? Most people find they feel tied to conventional laundry pairs because they have to move the clothes from the washer to the dryer. With a combination model, you load your clothes, make your cycle selections, add your detergent, fabric softener and/or bleach, and start the cycle. You do not have to worry about wet clothes remaining in the washer since the combo model dries them once the wash cycle is completed.

If you do not mind changing your laundry habits, then a combination washer dryer might be right for you. In addition, you have flexibility in deciding where to install the appliance in your home and can convert it to a portable model that connects right to your kitchen faucet.

Choosing the Right LG Washer and Dryer

When you are selecting a new LG washer and dryer for your home, you have to decide which models are going to provide you the most benefits. It is worthwhile to write down the sorts of features and options you desire in your new models. Here are some questions you should answer and which can be useful in narrowing down your selections:

  • Are you looking to reduce your water and energy bills?
  • Do you have an existing laundry room?
  • Do you have limited space?
  • Are you going to have to pay to have a contractor to install and/or clean dryer venting?

If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, LG has solutions to fit your needs. You might want to consider one of their washer and dryer combination models. These units are where both washing and drying functions have been incorporated into an energy-efficient, space-saving design. You could even choose to add on wheel and kitchen sink conversion kits to make the appliance portable. Combination appliances are able to be plugged directly into any standard 3-prong household 110 volt outlet. They only need to be connected to hot and cold water lines and a drain, which can be your kitchen sink with the sink conversion kit. They use ventless drying technologies to fully dry your clothes and do not need any dryer venting.

Another option, if you prefer two separate appliances, is a side-by-side, or stacked washer dryer. These LG models also incorporate energy-saving features to reduce your water and energy bills, as well as provide ventless drying without the use of a dryer vent. You can learn more about all of these models on our website and feel free to contact us directly if you have any questions, or if you require assistance in selecting the right models for your home.

Get New LG Washer and Dryer Sets with Your Tax Return

Get New LG Washer and Dryer Sets with Your Tax Return

You might be looking forward to your tax return this year so you can get new appliances for your home, like LG washer and dryer sets. Depending on the last time you purchased laundry appliances, you may notice several new features and options, like ventless drying and combination units. Some models also give you the flexibility to place them side-by-side or stack them on top of each other to help save space.

Other changes you will notice in washer and dryer sets are energy-saving features, like using less water and electricity to wash and dry your clothes. For instance, the LG WM1355HW washer requires only 9.3 gallons of water for a full load of clothes. This is a significant reduction in water, compared to the 30 gallons other front loaders require or the 40 to 60 gallons conventional top loaders use. Not only will your water bill be less, but so will your energy costs for hot water.

Another significant technological advancement in recent years is ventless drying. This feature eliminates the costs associated with installing a dryer vent or the wasted energy of using a vented dryer. For examples, the LG DLEC855W uses air-to-air condensation drying. This is where the air is heated, passed through the clothes to remove moisture, and then cooled in another area to turn it back into water. Think of it as steam drying your clothes, which is gentler on your clothing than conventional drying. As water is removed from the clothing, it is pumped right down the same discharge drain as your wash water.

Get In-Home Laundry with a Space-Saving Combination Washer and Dryer

Get In-Home Laundry with a Space-Saving Combination Washer and Dryer

Any time you have a limited amount of space in your home, you do not have to forgo owning your own washer and dryer set. There are several small, space-saving LG models on the market today that are designed just for this purpose. You do not even need to worry about dryer venting, as the models incorporate modern, energy-efficient ventless condensing drying technologies.

One option that is growing in popularity here, and which has been used in Europe and Asia for years, is the LG combination washer and dryer. This is an all-in-one appliance designed to take up little space in the home, while providing you in-home laundry. Models include 2.7 cubic feet capacity and 24 inches wide, and 3.6 cubic feet capacity and 27 inches wide.

Because of the compact and space-saving design of the LG combination washer and dryer, you can place it just about anywhere in the home. However, you do need to have access to hot and cold water lines and a drain, as well as a standard 110V three-prong outlet. But, even if you do not have a laundry room in your home, there are still a few other installation options.

Some people install the appliance under their counter in the kitchen, much like their dishwasher, and connect it directly to the existing water and drain lines. Other people purchase the optional wheel kit and sink conversion kit. With these kits, they make their combo appliance portable, so they can wheel it right up to the kitchen sink and connect it to the faucet whenever they need to run a load of clothes.
