Washer most popular

Below is a list of the top best-selling scrubber on Amazon:

Washer: how to choose

Washer condensing or expulsion?

A first major distinction between the scrubber has to do with the drying technology (for washing, these devices behave like normal washing machines).

In the dryer, the air is heated through a heat pump: a fan located on the front part of the basket that will circulate hot air generated by the electrical resistance.

At this point, the distinction to be made relates to the water expulsion mode of condensation that forms. The two types are:

At the moment, floor scrubbers condensation are the most popular on the market.

Load capacity

Before talking about the carrying capacity of a washer dryer it is right to make an introduction.

The in washing capacity will always be higher than that in drying, as for the latter more space is needed between a head and the other for more uniform drying (if the load is excessive hot air non-uniformly strikes the heads which will still be damp at the end of the cycle).

Basket of washer dryers

That said, in a scrubber with wash load capacity between 6 and 8 kg and 4-5 kg ​​of drying is able to satisfy the needs of an average household of 3-4 people.

For higher load capacity is necessary to go up in price, with models even come to 12 kg in washing! These devices are still recommended for specific needs, for example, many households or homes with several roommates.

dimensions

Another factor to consider is the size of the dryer, to distinguish from load capacity seen in the previous paragraph.

The standard measures of a washing machine are approximately 60 x 85 x 65 cm. However, those who have space problems can tack on a slim or compact scrubber. These devices have a reduced depth of about 15-20 cm and are therefore perfect for confined spaces, or to place the appliance in a corner.

Obviously, something is lost from the point of view of load capacity, but the performance of the slim scrubber medium are comparable with the normal ones.

consumption

How much power a washer dryer? This is one of the questions that you’ve surely asked when you started thinking about this purchase.

From this point of view there are good news. In fact, the technical evolution has led to the spread of technologies such as that of the heat pump and the inverter motor, that have contributed (and not just) to drastically reduce consumption.

Energy label, you will find all the information you’ll need, including the energy efficiency class for washing, drying and scrubber mode (note that the washing in class will always be higher than that in the drying).

In addition, they are also available information relating to the consumption of water and energy for each type of cycle (washing, drying, washing + drying).

On average, for a wash cycle we are consumed only 1.5 kWh, equivalent to about 30 cents. A drying cycle has instead an approximately three times higher consumption (90 cents).

Which scrubber buy then? The advice is to opt for products with energy class A scrubber mode, even if the initial price is higher. The difference in investment will in fact be paid off in no time.

Programs and special functions

A scrubber is nothing more than a washing machine with integrated dryer. It has therefore all standard programs offered by these two types of household appliance (cottons, synthetics, Mixed, etc.).

To these are added the most important programs, which are certainly those of a continuous cycle, namely those that include both the washing step that drying. Just insert the load, start the program and the leaders will come out from the basket already dry.

Almost all of the scrubber offers this type of program, some of them even offer the option + washing quick-drying, of course, for smaller loads.

We come to the treated tissues. The modern washing machines and dryers are able to treat different types of fabric, including delicate garments made of silk and wool.

Just the wool is one of the most difficult materials to be treated: in fact, a bad cycle could lead all’infeltrimento tissue and the loss of its natural softness. We therefore recommend that you focus on appliances that have official certificates of the case (for example WOOLMARK Blue).

Very interesting are finally the steam features found in many machines. These programs allow you to refresh and Anti-Allergic extremely effective and rapid.

Best washer dryer brands

As in the case of dryers, the choice of the brand of washer dryers is extremely important. After all, we are talking about a product that will have to be washed to dry your laundry. Making the wrong choice could mean ruin some of your favorite gear.

What are the best brands scrubber? Surely the German AEG and Miele, which nevertheless have high prices and not accessible to all. Going down slightly in price, there is still great brand products such as Electrolux, Bosch, LG and Samsung, Candy, Whirlpool and Hotpoint Ariston.

Beware, in this case, from lesser known brands and offer products at low prices. For this type of purchase, it is advisable to invest a few euro more leaving and to avoid unpleasant surprises after the first drying cycles.

Washer: prices

As a scrubber costs? The price of these appliances can vary from several hundred to several thousand euro. On average, 600-700 euro would bring home a good product, although you can find cheaper products. However, in this case we will have to lower expectations in terms of energy savings and overall performance.
