With a washer-dryer combo you can both wash and dry, thus saving space in your laundry room or bathroom. Because you also only buy one appliance instead of two, you also often save money with a washer-dryer combo. Because of the washer-dryer combo, you don’t have to transfer your laundry to another appliance when it’s washed clean and needs to be dried. Just like a regular washer and dryer, a washer-dryer combo has different wash and dry programs. However, washer-dryers often have a smaller fill weight for drying than for washing. In addition, washer-dryers have higher energy consumption and are slower to wash and dry than two separate appliances.
