Everything is Better in Pairs—Especially Laundry Pairs

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!

A Front-Load or Top-Load Laundry Pair?

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.

Top-load washers use agitators, are low-maintenance, and have faster wash and rinse cycles. Plus, you can always add that dropped sock or baby blanket even after the wash cycle is going. Compatible dryers have a top-down door that can act as a folding shelf or a catcher of dropped laundry.

Front-load washers use impellers, use less water per cycle, and are more energy efficient. And an added bonus is that the front-load design on both washer and dryer lets you stack your appliances with a compatible stacking kit.

What Capacity Do I Need?

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.

Can I Stack My Washer and Dryer?

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 stacked laundry tower—just keep in mind that a stacked laundry pair allows for larger capacities and snazzy features.

What Features Should I Look For?

Other than your basic cycles and motion sensors, some key features to look for are:

  • Washers: automatic temperature control, internal water heater, quick wash, built-in sink, steam, sanitize cycles, noise reduction, touchscreen controls, and self-diagnostics
  • Dryers: heat pump (for ventless drying), drum racks & lights, top-mount lint vents, vent-block indicator, eco-cycle, steam, and NSF ratings
  • For the ultimate pairing experience, look for pedestals or pedestal washers
