  • Model: LG WM8000HVA DLEX8000V Washer and Dryer
  • Washerlist Rank: #1
  • Review Highlights: The washer is absolutely amazing. It's fast, cutting the laundry time of other washers more than in half, and the different options are wonderful also. It has excellent sanitize and sllergy loads, and it even has a small load option so you won't have to waste water on the occasional small load. The washer does a great job especially with really dirty items, and it can fit king size comforters.

Best Washer and Dryer / Samsung WA422PRHDWR DV422EWHDWR Review
  • Samsung WA422PRHDWR DV422EWHDWR Washer and Dryer
  • Washerlist Rank: #2
  • Review Highlights: The washer in this set has an extra large tub with diamond-shaped holes. These help to reduce the wear on fabrics. The maximum spin cycle speed is 800RPM, and that is, as you probably know, is not the fastest out there. The surprise is that this washer actually gets your clothes plenty dry, so the dryer is left with an easy job. There are 9 wash cycles on the washer.

A Small Note on the Best Washer and Dryer Combo

Yes. We don't recommend any washer and dryer combo. We've received a lot of questions about it, so we will try to explain here why.

  1. Washer and dryer combos generally have a lower capacity than separate machines. Some of the larger stand-alone washers can fit over 20 lbs in capacity. At the same time, the largest combos can only take around 13 lbs.
  2. The dryer cycle of the combo can only handle around half of the capacity of the washer cycle. Modern designs, while costlier, exceed these limits. But it usually means that you will not be able to wash and dry a full capacity load in one go.
  3. Another major drawback of washer and dryer combos is that they take significantly longer to dry clothes in comparison to stand-alone dryers. The combo-dryer has to work longer to dry the drum and its enclosure as well as the clothes. This can take up to three hours.
  4. That leads us to the next point. Washer and dryer combos are not efficient. The combo performs both washing and drying, which makes it harder to design an efficient and effective machine. The longer drying times noted above also make it difficult to increase efficiency. Another contributing factor to the low efficiency is that combos can only handle small loads. This results in multiple loads rather than fewer but larger loads of a regular stand-alone machines.
  5. Considering these drawbacks, we find almost all of these combo machines to be impractical at the moment. We wish more manufacturers would compete in this space, because competition would compel combo manufactures to improve these drawbacks.
  6. As for now, we didn't find the best washer and dryer combo. Sorry for that.
