Washer and dryer sets can be purchased in stores like Lowe's, Sears, Best Buy or Home Depot. If they are not available inside the store, they can easily be ordered online using the company website. For ultimate efficiency and convenience, single-machine, all-in-one washer and dryer combinations are also made available.
Best Buy has a good variety of washer and dryer sets listed on its website along with product details and prices. Lowe's has on its website both standard and high-efficiency machines that can also be delivered to the purchaser's doorstep. Aspects to consider before buying the machines are color coordination, brand, amount of noise during wash and dry cycles, performance of washing, all-in-one washer and dryer or separate duos, capacity to hold a fair amount of clothes, energy efficiency, price and size. Narrowing down the list could help in the process of finding the most suitable and reliable machine.
Another point to note is the length of time it takes to complete the wash cycle. For instance, front-loader washers can be more energy-efficient as they spin a bit faster than top-loader washers. This in turn can eventually reduce the amount of drying time, making it easier to conserve water and electricity.
