Tips for picking the right washer and dryer

Top-load: Clothes in a top-loading machines are loaded through a door in the the top. Some use agitators; a pillar in the center which rotates, while others feature a rotating plate on the base. The latter is a better design as it's less likely to damage the clothes. 

Front-load: Clothes in front-loading machines are loaded via a door in the front; they wash by rotating the drum to agitate the clothes. Typically, this design uses less water and electricity than top-loaders as the drum requires less water. The door will lock during the wash cycle though, so you can't add a rogue sock once the cycle begins.

Combination: If you struggle for space, then a combination washer/dryer might be best. These appliances function as both washers and dryers, meaning you can wash and dry clothes in the same drum. While the design makes sense, we've found that these hybrid machines generally struggle in performance; they take much longer than a standalone dryer.
