Tips When Shopping For A New Washer And Dryer
Shopping for a new washer and dryer can be daunting. Here are some tips before buying that will help you avoid a bad purchase.
Measure. Then Measure Again
The first thing to look for when shopping for a new washer and dryer is something that fits your space (and your budget).
Be sure to measure doorways and stairwells to ensure you can get your new machinery into your new home and to the room it needs to be in.
Bring your measuring tape to the store to make sure it fits in the space you need it to.
Choose Your Must-Have Features
In accordance with your budget, brainstorm some features your new machine must have so you’re prepared when heading to the store.
Capacity – If you’re a family of 6, your laundry needs are likely different than that of a single-person home. Ensure your washer and dryer can handle what you need out of it.
Sound – If your washer and dryer are often used in close accordance to a bedroom or office then you might want to get one with extra padding and sound dampening to avoid an ugly DIY job.
Design – Do you often toss clothes in the washer after you hit start? If so, you won’t want a washer that has a door on the side panel of the washer. A top opening washer would be best to avoid water flooding your floor.

Research all of your options and choose which ones you must-have when choosing your new washer and dryer.
Plan For Delivery And Removal
Before buying, make sure the retailer will not only deliver your new washer and dryer set to your home and install it but also remove your old ones.
