Is a washer dryer
right for me

Washer dryers have lots of advantages, especially if you don't have room for a separate washing machine and tumble dryer. As you'd expect however, combining a washing machine and tumble dryer does mean you have to make some compromises. If you're unsure what would be best for you, this guide will help you make the right decision.

Washer Dryer

Advantages of washer dryers:

  • By combining two appliances in one, washer dryers save space and give you more room to have other appliances, such as a dishwasher.
  • If you only have room for one appliance, having a washer dryer means you can enjoy all the benefits of a tumble dryer when it wouldn't otherwise be possible.
  • Washer dryers are available with large capacities, making them suitable even if you have a large family or do lots of washing. Hoover's range of washer dryers for example includes large 9kg wash and 6kg dry load capacities.
  • The best washer dryers clean just as well as a washing machine. In fact, Hoover's washer dryers feature the Dynamic 3D Wash System, which moves the clothes in a 3-dimensional way to achieve superior cleaning results.
  • Washer dryers are self-condensing, so there's no need to worry about providing ventilation.
  • It typically doesn't cost any more to run a washer dryer than it does to run a washing machine and tumble dryer.
  • Because you only have to buy one appliance, it's cheaper to buy a washer dryer than it is to buy a washing machine and tumble dryer separately.

Disadvantages of washer dryers

  • The drying capacity of washer dryers doesn't match the washing capacity, so if you fill the washing machine to its full washing capacity, you won't be able to dry all of the clothes in one go. Of course, you can get easily around this by air-drying some of the clothes that dry quickly, such as nylons and fleeces.
  • You can't simultaneously wash and dry clothes with a washer dryer.

If you have the room for a washing machine and tumble dryer, you may find buying each machine individually more convenient. If you don't have the room for two separate appliances however, a washer dryer offers a fantastic solution and enables you to enjoy the convenience of a tumble dryer when it wouldn't otherwise be possible.
