A quick search online should give a ballpark idea of ​​the likely cost and what you may be able to buy with the available budget. By having an idea of ​​the maximum you wish to pay for the appliances, you are in a better place to know which types of models are available.

Intended use

Load capacity and frequency of washing the clothes is certain to relate to on the largest deciding factors. For a large family with a need to wash a lot of clothes on an almost daily basis, it helps to buy the large-capacity machines. In general, the front load washer offers the largest capacities. Also, since a lot of water and electricity is used, an energy-efficient washer and dryer combination is certain to offer the more attractive option. However, if you enjoy the small apartment living, a compact-sized or stacked washing machine is certain to offer a more practical option.

Energy rating

Compare the initial cost of the washer / dryer with the potential savings in the long-term. Even though an energy rated appliance saves money in regards to electricity use and water, they are considerably more expensive to buy than the standard non-rated models. It helps to determine whether the potential long-term savings with the energy-efficient appliance is able to compensate for the extra cost associated with these energy rated machines.

Shipping cost

It helps to factor in the cost of shipping the washer / dryer since this can be quite expensive with the large appliances. Compare shipping rates with a variety of retailers to make sure you are able to purchase from those offering the low and acceptable rates.

Reading customer feedback gives a great option for learning more about a potential purchase. Washer and dryer reviews are helpful for finding out things like the loudness of the drying cycle and if the control panel is user-friendly. Reading up on the user reviews is certain to help with finding the appliances that are most suited to your specific needs and lifestyle.
