Carina Henriette

A stackable washer and dryer or an all in one washer anddryer (combo unit) will save you your valuable floor space while giving you the most function from your machine. So how can you determine which machine is best suited for you? Look at the pros and Cons of each of the top laundry machines and then determine which machine best suites your cleaning needs. This is an easy process that won't cost you a penny. So, let's get started.

Frigidaire tumble dryer/washer: The frigate air dryer/washer offers users the ultimate in convenience. This machine allows the user to load a maximum of ten loads, each of which gets divided equally into two separate compartments. This appliance comes with an integrated washer, which makes it very easy to manually load clothes into each compartment. The top loading compartment can be used to dry your clothes, while the bottom loading compartment can be used for storing. It has an automatic shut off timer, so there's no need to worry about the appliance getting over-heated while in use.

GE washers and dryers: If efficiency is your mission, GE appliances are the perfect choice for you. These appliances are manufactured by the world-known industrial and technological innovator, General Electric. The GE name carries a hefty price tag, but when purchasing these, you're actually getting more than you paid for. The GE brand is known for being energy efficient, durable, and safe, and this reputation is well deserved.

The latest addition to the line of GE washers and dryers is the Stackable Washer and Dryer combo. This compact appliance comes in three sizes, offering much space savings. When filled with dirty clothes, the top-mounted compressor can easily push out a gallon or more in less than ten seconds. A built-in washer nozzle, with a variable airflow control, lets you regulate the amount of water sent to the dryer. The Stackable Washer and Dryer combos is perfect for dorm rooms, and even at work, as it saves a lot of space.

GE stackable washer and dryers also come with a few more helpful features. They have two speeds of washing: low speed for light laundry, and medium speed for heavy laundry. They have multiple heat settings, useful for those hot summer days. And the washer has two steam functions: dry and steam. This second steam function is especially useful for those who enjoy the outdoors-whole house steam cleaning is not always possible.

Some buyers complained that the Stackable Washer and Dryer Combo's small stature left them feeling cramped and uncomfortable. That may be why GE made the top-mounted compressor a little bigger, to allow some breathing room for those with larger spaces. It now comes in a full-size version, which is still about five cubic feet, but just a tad larger. That way, even with a full load, the compressor can maintain a position that doesn't block movement. And with the slightly larger front frame, it's easy to keep the dryer on the floor, where it belongs.

What are these pros and cons? There really aren't too many pros to speak of. However, some consumers noted that the Stackable Washer and Dryer Combo's large size helped them save space in their home. And while the cons state that they are bulky, it's hard to feel anything other than a positive reaction when you take that first step into this new home appliance line.

You can save quite a bit of money when you purchase two models from the same manufacturer. And for the price that you pay, you get a machine that will do two loads of laundry, rather than one. And stackable washer and dryer combos provide you with even more savings. As a result, they have become one of the hottest products on the market for both home use and commercial use. If you need two machines, the Stackable Washer and Dryer Combo is likely to be an excellent choice.
