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.

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.
