Wash and dry weight (kg fill weight)

Wash and dry weight (kg fill weight) is something you should always consider when buying a washer-dryer, as it differs for washing and drying. Most combined washer-driers will display the fill weight as 8kg/5kg or 9kg/6kg, with the former indicating washing and the latter drying.

If you have 8kg for washing and only 5kg for drying, that always means you’ll need to dry some of your laundry differently. If you’re looking to wash and dry all your laundry, it’s best to choose a large capacity washer-dryer, such as the Whirlpool fwdd 1071682 wsv eu n, which can wash 10kg and dry 7kg. If 7 kg is still just enough, you could also consider getting a separate washer and dryer.

Energy label

When you are looking for a cheap washer/dryer combination, you will naturally want to keep your energy costs down. A washer-dryer with a purchase price of between €500 and €800 will have energy class D or E. There are no energy class A washer-dryers available yet. The energy label provides all the information you need to calculate how much energy it will use annually and how much it will cost you.

Always do the math first, because in the long run it could be cheaper to buy a slightly more expensive, but more economical, washer-dryer. A washer-dryer with a brushless motor, for example, uses much less energy, but is more expensive to buy. For example, consider a load sensor that weighs how many kg of laundry is in the drum and adjusts the program length and water consumption accordingly. A 5kg drum will automatically run for less time than an 8kg load.

A clothes protector drum, such as the aeg l7wb86gw, can help keep your laundry looking good for longer, and the option to add laundry in between can help you wash that one forgotten sock.

There are lots of extra options that can make using a wash and dry combination easier. You will never find all of them on a cheap model, but you will certainly have plenty to choose from.

The RPM (rpm)

The RPM of a washer-dryer indicates how many times the drum spins per minute during the spin. The more spins, the drier your laundry will be. Most inexpensive washer-dryers run at 1400 rpm, and some even reach 1600 rpm.

Please note that this 1400 rpm figure only applies to the cotton programme. Shorter programs or more delicate programs often run much lower than 1400 rpm, because that is enough to get your laundry dry. The main benefit of a washer/dryer combination is that it is a washer/dryer in one. Some models also offer a non-stop function, whereby the washing and drying is done within the same cycle. This means that you don’t have to manually switch on a new drying program in between, which can save you a lot of time.

You can start the non-stop program on your washer-dryer in the morning before you go to work, and when you get home everything is clean and dry.

Please note that you may have a different build weight for washing and drying, so the non-stop programme only works for the build weight for drying, which is often only between 5kg and 7kg.

The Spin Noise Level

Most inexpensive washer-dryers have a noise level between 73 db and 77 db, which is considered to be between quiet and normal. With noise levels above 73 db you should always consider that the washer-dryer cannot be placed next to your bedroom and will be too noisy even in a small room.

The noise level of a washer-dryer is always measured at the time of spin. So during the washing and drying process the noise level can be much lower.
