No one ever looks at a mountain of laundry and thinks, “I just can’t wait to dive in.” When you have baskets of clothing, towels, and bedding, it can take hours to work your way from start to putting that final pair of socks in a drawer. The good news? A new washer and dryer give you the features, size, and smart functions you need to make a difference in how quickly you work your way through loads of laundry.
Washer and dryer capacity is important
When you want to cut down on how many loads of laundry you do every week, capacity will be the most important factor. For family-sized loads of laundry, you’ll want to choose a dryer with 6 cu. ft. capacity and larger. You should also keep in mind that your dryer should have at least twice the capacity of your new washer.
Put the cycles to good use
Do you have a favourite washer and dryer setting? Without thinking about it, most of us default to the normal cycle and just let it run through every load of our clothes. But if you only use the normal cycle, you’re missing out of cycles that can cut down on the time you wash clothes.
If you have a large load of whites, colours, or darks, you can choose the heavy cycle and your washer and dryer will adapt to that large load. Want to wash bedding or blankets? Choose the bedding cycle. There’s also quick wash if you have a lightly soiled load of laundry, and you can run through a load in as little as 15 minutes. When the cycle is complete, use the Quick Dry cycle on your dryer and you’ll have dry clothes in 1/2 hour.
Take ironing off the agenda
If ironing takes up a lot of your time, you’ll want to choose one of the latest dryers with steam. Steam will remove the wrinkles from your clothing so you can hang it straight in your closet. If you can’t get to your dryer right away to remove your clothing, you can use the wrinkle-free tumble setting to periodically fluff your clothes for hours. That way, they are ready to wear when they come out of the dryer.
Smart features make laundry even easier
The latest laundry pairs connect to Wi-Fi and work via an app so you can control your washer or dryer from anywhere you are. You can start, stop, and pause cycles, download new cycles, or troubleshoot any issues you might have.
Don’t have space? Try stacking
When you want to upgrade to a new washer and dryer but you don’t have a huge laundry room, you can still get the laundry pair you’d like. All you have to do is add an optional stacking kit and you can free up space in your home while still enjoying a large capacity washer and dryer.
