How to Choose Laundry Appliances

When shopping for laundry appliances such as a washing machine or dryer, various factors must be considered. Give thought to their functionality, size, and efficiency. Design seldom plays a role in the selection process.

Types of Laundry Appliances

The first step in choosing laundry appliances in Perth is to determine what type of appliances you need. Thankfully, this is an easy decision to make as there are only three types: washing machines, dryers and washer and dryer combos. However, there are also various types of washing machines and dryers.

There are top loading washing machines, front loading washing machines, twin-tub washing machines and also washer and dryer combos. In terms of dryers, there are vented dryers, condenser dryers, heat pump dryers and gas dryers. (Compare the difference between Front Loader and Top Loader Washing Machines to see which is the right washing machine for you.)

Typically, a household will have a separate washing machine and dryer. However, many have only a washing machine, and some have just a  washer and dryer combo. The best for you will be determined by available laundry space and budget.

Laundry Appliance Functionality

Each type of washing machine and clothes dryer offers different functionality and may stipulate which type of appliance is best for your needs.

For example, a dryer stacked on a front loading washings machine is an excellent option for small laundries, while heat pump and condenser dryers don’t need to be vented or ducted, which is great for renters.

The controls and programs of a washing machine may also play a role in the selection process.

Laundry Appliance Size

Washing machines and dryers both come in various drum sizes. Washing machine drum sizes range from around 5kg to 16kg, and dryers from 4kg to 10kg. It’s important to choose the right size for your household needs.

Knowing which size you need is easy;
For 1-2 people; consider a 4 kg – 6.5 kg washing machine and dryer.
For 3-4 people; consider a 7 kg – 8.5 kg washing machine and dryer.
For 5+ people; consider a 9+ kg washing machine and dryer.

Laundry Appliance Efficiency

Efficiency also should be taken into consideration. Washing machines have an Energy Star Rating and WELS (Water Efficiency Labelling Scheme) rating according to their water and energy use. Clothes dryers also have an Energy Star Rating. The higher the rating, the more efficient the appliance.

If you’re looking for an energy-efficient solution, then a front load washing machine and a heat pump dryer would be the ideal choice.

Regardless of which type of washing machine and dryer you choose, you’ll find the perfect appliance for your needs and budget at Ross’s Discount Home Centre.
