You might be considering only replacing your washer or only replacing your dryer—just fix what’s broke right? While this thinking isn’t wrong, you should really consider a matching laundry pair instead, and not just for the looks. Laundry pairs are designed to be compatible with each other and take out a lot of the guesswork.
Before you do anything, carefully measure your laundry space and leave 1-3 inches on the side for circulation and 4-6 inches at the back for installation. Front-loaders need 21-25 inches for the door swing. For top-loaders, don’t forget to leave a 20-inch door clearance!
This is probably your first consideration, the old top- vs front-load debate. Basically, what it comes down to are your laundry considerations (how much, how often) and your available space.
Capacity depends on how much laundry you do in a week, and the size of your items (like bulky comforters). Here’s a helpful rundown on what you need to know:
Standard washers with 3.1 to 4.0 cu. ft. can hold loads between 12 and 16 pounds of laundry. Large-capacity washers range between 4.2 and 4.5 cu. ft., and can wash 20 pounds of laundry or more.
To simplify it even further, a 3.5 cu. ft. washer with no agitator can fit a queen-size comforter (depending on how fluffy), while 4.2 cu. ft. or larger fits a king.
And since laundry pairs are designed to be compatible, your dryer will handle everything you wash.
Yup! As long as you have a front-facing washer and dryer set you can stack it with a compatible stacking kit (look out for top-mount detergent dispensers that might get in the way).
If your space is super compact, you might be considering a
