What are the best washers and dryers for those looking to buy new machines or replace their old ones? That all depends on what you’re looking for in your washer and dryer. Every washer and dryer has it’s own unique features that can be taken advantage of to make the laundry process as convenient for you as possible! It’s always worth keeping in mind that ‘best’ is a subjective term, so identifying what you want out of your appliances is critical to buying a washer and dryer that’s right for you.
What Are The Best Washers And Dryers?
It’s worth noting that washer & dyer bundles can sometimes be cheaper than buying two independent units, however, bundles are not always an option. Below are 5 top washers from 2015 that all provide something a little bit different than their peers:

Our first washer is one of the highest rated washers on the market. A large majority of customer reviews make mention of the automatic balancing system being extraordinarily helpful in providing a thorough and deep cleansing. This washing machine is for those who like their machines simple yet convenient for a price they can afford!
Another top rated machine from Speed Queen, this machine has loads (excuse the pun) of cool features. The time display completely eliminates the guesswork involved in your laundry, you’ll know exactly when your load of clothes will be ready to put in the dryer. The no lid lock allows you to stop your cycle at any time, and the stainless steel tub provides a dependable and effective clean.
This modern washing machine from Frigidaire is renowned for its innovative style choices and convenience. The glass top allows you to check on your load at any given moment, and the Immersion Care system pushes water and detergent gently through your clothes for a super thorough cleaning!
This washer is for those looking for a smaller, more portable option. The Midea 2.0 is just under 7 pounds and can fit in the tiniest areas of your home for maximum convenience. Despite it’s small size, this washer is no joke. It will clean your clothes very efficiently according to most reviews, as long as you can deal with the smaller load sizes.
This washing machine has been given nothing but good reviews by fellow customers. This washing machine has a comparatively larger capacity than the other washers while still being lighter and in some cases cheaper. The sole knock on this washing machine is that this machine can sometimes be a bit loud (probably the 4.6 cu. foot steel drum being banged around).
Now that we’ve looked at some of the different washer options on the market, it’s time to decide how we’re going to get those clothes and other laundered items dry!

This dryer has received overwhelmingly positive reviews on every major appliance review website. This dryer is the most expensive on our list, but with good reason. This dryer has an adjustable end-of-cycle buzzer for maximum convenience, as well as other convenient features like automatic dry cycles and a secure lint filter to prevent unwanted lint all over your laundry.
Although this dryer is priced at mid-range, it has received nothing but top reviews since being released by Amana. The reversible doors make getting your laundry out easy wherever you install, and the 4 pre-programmed dry cycles work great for clothes and especially great for towels and linens. One noted downside of this dryer is there is no buzzer or alert sound when a cycle has completed.
This option is for people who like something light, portable, and vent-less. Although the vent-less dryer can greatly increase your lint production, it can also quicken drying times drastically. This mid-range dryer is for people who are concerned with getting their laundry dry in a hurry. As a bonus, the unit is light enough to move around if necessary.
This dryer from GE (General Electric) is perhaps our best combination of price and quality for those looking to start a new home. Reasonably priced, this dryer also has a 1 year manufacturer warranty that guarantees replacement should anything go wrong within that time. Having that peace of mind is its own reward. This dryer has received great reviews regarding its drying speed.
This portable dryer from Panda is by far our most inexpensive option on the list. At a shockingly low 44 lbs, this dryer can be taken anywhere that you can fit it! It can even be wall mounted in your home. The transparent door allows you to check in on your laundry at any time, however there will be significantly smaller load size to the capacity of the dryer.
