Six Washer Dryers That Will Change your Life

In a world where square footage is a premium, space saving is something we all have to consider. As home computers have turned into tablets and Hi-Fis have tuned into mp3 docking stations, it’s inevitable that washer dryers have shot up in the popularity stakes. Combining a washing machine and a tumble dryer in one standard size unit, they’re the ultimate space saving appliance. Here are some of the best.
First up is the Hotpoint BHWD129. Following the trend for built-in kitchens, this white washer dryer is designed to be placed subtly behind a cupboard door, only to be seen when needed. The 16 programmes are the selling point here; the Baby Cycle is there to tackle tough stains ensuring everything is thoroughly clean, while the 60 minute Fastwash will give you an A rated wash in an hour. The feature that really will change your life is the 60 minute Ready to Wear cycle. Not only will this machine wash your clothes, it’ll dry them within the hour too.
If space is the key issue when looking for a washer dryer, speed comes in as a close second. The tech-sperts at Samsung know this and have developed a super-quick 29 minute quick wash. On top of this, their WD8704RJA washer dryer features AIR Refresh technology. Rather than using harsh detergents and dry cleaning chemicals, Samsung’s AIR Refresh programme employs only air to remove odour-causing bacteria from all types of fabrics. Samsung's AIR Refresh gently circulates the flow of heated fresh air to deeply penetrate fabrics and eliminate persistent odours such as food and tobacco. The result is a more environmentally sensible way to keep your clothing clean.

Now, washing trainers is a tricky task, we’ve all been faced with a pair of filthy pumps and put off the task of washing them in the sink. The Indesit Start IWDC6125 washer dryer comes equipped with not one, but three sports washes – one of those dedicated to washing sports shoes. In the speed stakes, Indesit aren’t far behind Samsung. Their Eco Time function can be selected on certain programmes to reduce the overall wash and dry durations by up to 25%. Who doesn’t want more time?

Number one on the most hated household chores list – ironing! Hotpoint have cottoned on to this, developing their Hotpoint Aquarius WDL520P washer dryer. Whether you select timed or set and forget sensor drying, you can add on Hotpoint’s Pre and Post creasecare option to help prevent creases forming in your laundry. This will intermittently tumble the load with no heat. It’s particularly useful if you are not available to unload the machine at the end of a cycle. It’s a simple but useful feature that will reduce the ironing pile and make your life so much easier.

As houses, apartments and flats have shrunk, open plan living has taken off, and a quiet washer dryer is essential for those who living rooms merge into their kitchens. Some of the quietest washer dryers use a brushless inverter motor which takes away the friction created by the brushes on a motor. Less friction means less noise, therefore the squeaking associated with washing machines and washer dryers is eliminated, not to mention, they’re more durable than typical washer dryer motors. Both Hotpoint’s WDD960P and AEG’s L16850 run using an inverter motor, making them some of the quietest washer dryers on the market. That really will change your life!
