LG WM8000HVA and Kenmore Elite 41072


The Kenmore Elite 40172 is made by LG and based on the WM8000HVA. Not only are the two machines similar in design, but both performed almost identically in our lab tests. Both washers feature massive 5.1-cubic-foot capacity, quick 48-minute Normal cycles, and great stain removal. Even with all those benefits, both washers are efficient when it comes to water and electricity use.

WDI-LG-WM8000HVA-vanity.jpgRunner-up: Kenmore Elite 41583

The Kenmore 41583 replaces the Kenmore 41472, our two-time Best of Year award winner. Not only is the 41583 new, it's also improved: A 30 minute Normal cycle is 8 minutes faster than its predecessor, and a sleek design will look great in your laundry room. It's also efficient, and did a great job removing stains. (Est. price: $1, 049)

Electrolux EWMED70JIW

For the third year in a row, Electrolux's flagship dryer remains the best we've ever tested. That's mostly because of its versatility: Whether we dried delicate fabrics or bulky comforters, it was up for the task.WDI-Electrolux-EWMED70JIW-hero.jpg We were also impressed by its large capacity and a bunch of extra features—including custom cycles for sanitizing clothes, drying jeans, and fluffing up pet beds. (Est. price: $1, 304)

Runner-up: Electrolux EIED50LIW

If you like the EWMED70JIW but don't need all its specialty cycles, the EIED50LIW is a great choice. It has the same 8-cubic-foot drum and does just as good a job getting clothes dry, but sells for about $400 less than the flagship. That makes it a great deal and a great dryer. (Est. price: $899)

Swash, by Whirlpool and Procter & Gamble

If you've got big dry cleaning bills, you should check out the Swash. It's a clothing refresher that removes wrinkles and odors from even the most delicate fabrics, and it's designed to fit in a bedroom or even a closet. Unlike a steamer, it relies on special cleaning pods that contain wetting agent, water, and pH neutralizer. Once you put a garment in the Swash, it will be ready to wear just 10 minutes later. (Est. price: $499)

Popular Q&A
gas or electric washer and dryer? | Yahoo Answers

I prefer gas dryers to electric, but suspect the price of natural gas and propane will continue to climb faster than electric rates.
Traditionally (i.e. three years ago), gas dryers were generally considered cheaper to operate than electric.
Choose a high efficiency dryer, whatever you get.
