339292_42409818-basket-in-hand.jpg   Purchasing washers and dryers is a unique situation for every buyer.  There are plenty of different styles and models that will work for each person.  One person may want a top loader that is as big as they come while another may want a much smaller unit.  You may be interested in energy efficiency while someone else is much more budget conscious in purchasing the best quality for their money.  Nevertheless, several models of the newest washers and dryers are still rated highly among consumers who have bought and used them.

3 Top Rated Choices
Here is a look at some of the top rated washers and dryers available to you today.
Kenmore He
Although it costs more than other models that are similar to it, the Kenmore HE (3t 42933) offers a variety of benefits that consumers like.  The energy savings is one of the best features of them all. It uses only 15.8 gallons of water during a standard cycle which is considerably lower than other models.  It uses less electricity as well which cuts down on two energy costs in the average home considerably. It is a large 3.7 cubic foot machine which means that it can handle large family needs.  It also has been noted for its ability to clean clothing well, removing more debris, stains and odors from the clothing.  Other key area that is being raved about in this Sears model washer (dryer to match get superior ratings as well) includes its ability to keep clothing in tack, with less wear and tear on it.
LG Steam Washer
Another machine that is seeing rave reviews from consumers is the LG Steam Washer and Dryer (WM2487HWM) from LG Electronics.  It is a front loading machine with all of the latest features on it.  In addition, though, it features a steam wash.  This particular wash is beneficial to those looking for a permanent press as they would get from the dry cleaner.  It can easily and delicately clean clothing that would otherwise require a trip to the dry cleaner (restrictions apply; make sure you check the manual for particulars here before purchasing it.)  The largest downfall of this unit is its price which is about $1300.  Nevertheless, the pair together is designed to provide for highly efficient use with a variety of settings, even the ability to program your own “ideal” setting that you can use as you see fit.  The washer has a drum size of 4.0 cubic feet, which is very large.
GE Front Loaders
The GE front load washer and dryer is another ideal pair with their ability to maximize energy efficiency, say most consumers that have rated them. The unit uses much less electricity and less water than any top loading machine.  This pair (models DBVH512EF/GF and WBVH6240F) is designed to be high efficiency machines.  The benefit here is in the way of cost, with these units being slightly lower in price than other similar units but still providing the high end quality wash and dry that you want.   The size of the unit is smaller to fit into tight locations.
Finding the right washer and dryer is a personal choice, though.  Compare other models to determine if they offer a better fit for your particular needs.

    Why are the front loaders just generally more efficient than the top loaders? How efficent are the “Energy Star” top loaders compared to the front loaders?

    I read something once that remarked how white laundry was when slapped on rocks, as women in third world countries do.
    The article said that side loaders replicate that action, just getting clothing wet and tumbing them.
    There should be energy star ratings on the machines in the stores, so you can do your own comparison.
    I called my local Home Depot and asked for the energy star rating. The salesperson told me the rating was for both washer and dryer. They were displayed together and the energy star stand up display spanned both machines.
    I later found that this was wrong, that the dryers were the biggest energy users and manufacturers were not yet required to meet government standards, so they are terrible energy drainers.
    I hate when sales people assume you are stupid and will lie to you to make a sale. Our local Radio Shack does that, as well.
    It is best to research everything you can online before purchasing anything.
    People say they use the steam machines instead of sending clothing to the dry cleaners. I contacted Whirlpool about their new steam machines and they replied they do not recommend their machines for even WASHABLE silks.
    I have the Whirlpool duet side loaders, not the new ones with steam.
    They make the Sears Kenmores, so they are very similar.
    I love these machines. My whites come out so much whiter than they did in my old clunker.
    I think I will stick to Whirlpool when I get a steam machine, and am somewhat surprised that they are not mentioned here.
