Laundry dryer model EWMED70JIW by Electrolux was awarded best dryer of the year in 2014 for a third consecutive year, according to Reviewed.com. The rating is attributed to its large capacity and versatility. Other top-rated laundry dryer brands include Samsung, LG and Whirlpool, according to TopTenReviews.
Differences in capacity, energy consumption, sound and size, and special features such as a moisture sensor are what separate top-rated laundry washers from the pack, according to Consumer Reports. Dryers with a moisture sensor, for example, shut down as soon as the clothes are dry, prolonging the life of fabric while using less energy compared to models with thermostats.
