Best Washing Machine – Kenmore Elite:
Under the skin, the Kenmore 40172 and LG WM8000HVA are identical. They both fit a massive amount of laundry, and wash a small load in under 30 minutes. No matter which one you choose, they’ll get stains out while going easy on delicate clothes, which is why they’ve won this award two years in a row. Both regularly dip below $1,000, so pick whichever one is on sale.
Best Dryer – Electrolux
Electrolux’s flagship dryer not only fits a lot of laundry, but it dries quickly and gently, offering the user a great deal of features in the process. Want a custom cycle to dry a pet bed, or a way to steam stuffed animals clean? The Electrolux has it.
Best Value Front-Load Washing Machine: LG WM3575CV
With such features as a 30-minute Turbo Wash cycle, superior stain removal, and above-average water removal at the end of a cycle, LG makes some seriously great front-load washing machines. At $750 on sale for the silver and $700 on sale for the white this washer offers a perfect blend of price and performance.
Best Value Dryer: Whirlpool Cabrio
