POINTS TO CON­SIDER:

Cabin Living - - Appliance Guide -

If you’re plan­ning to place your washer and dryer near a bed­room or fam­ily room, opt for less-noisy mod­els and those that let you si­lence those startling end-of-cy­cle buzzers. Don’t pay for ex­tras you don’t need — a zil­lion fancy cy­cles may sound great, but you prob­a­bly don’t ac­tu­ally need all of them, or you can repli­cate them us­ing stan­dard set­tings. Be­sides, many users com­plain that the “smart” fea­tures are the things that fre­quently break down. If you do opt for any fancy fea­tures, con­sider a mois­ture sen­sor and a steam cy­cle, but keep in mind that steam cy­cle ca­pa­bil­ity re­quires a wa­ter hookup.

Also, think about size. Go for a dryer that has roughly twice the ca­pac­ity of your wash­ing ma­chine. Don’t be mis­led by mar­ket­ing that says a dryer is “ex­tra large” be­cause this def­i­ni­tion varies by brand.
