What to look for when buying a narrow washer dryer combo

A combination washer dryer combo that is perfect for a small space.

A narrow combination washer/dryer is basically the same as a normal model, only slightly smaller. You often choose a narrow model because you want to place it in a small space and there are a number of extra features to consider. Prepare yourself well and pay attention to the following features:

The dimensions

An average washer-dryer is between 60 cm and 65 cm wide and a narrow model is about 55 centimeters wide. Don’t forget that you need extra space at the front and back of the washer-dryer. At the front you need at least 15 cm to open and close the door properly and at the back you need 20 cm to accommodate all the cords and other connections.

The connection

Not every small corner is suitable for just placing a small washer-dryer. You should always remember that you need at least electricity to connect the appliance and you also need somewhere for the water to go. Some washer-dryers have the option of collecting the water in a reservoir which you then have to empty yourself, but the water can also be discharged via a drainage hose. In the latter case, you should therefore have the option of leading the water outside.

The maximum filling weight of a narrow clothes dryer

In general, a normal washer-dryer combination already has a much smaller fill weight than a separate washer and dryer, and with a narrow model it is even smaller. You should consider that a narrow 60 cm washer-dryer will be able to wash about 8 kg of laundry and dry only 6 kg or 5 kg. For even smaller models, you will only be able to dry 4 kg of your laundry. So with a narrow washer-dryer, keep in mind that you will always have to dry some of your laundry in an alternative way or that you will always have to run a drying cycle twice.

The noise level

When you want to place a narrow washer-dryer in a small space it is not pleasant if it makes a lot of noise. Therefore, you should consider that a noise level below 73 dB is considered quiet and that a washer-dryer with a noise level above 75 dB will probably cause too much noise pollution.

Slim and shallow washer dryer combos

A narrow washer-dryer, around 60 cm wide, will fit in very well in a small space, but a shallow washer-dryer, around 38 cm deep, will fit easily under a sink or shelf.

If you don’t have much room in your home, it is wise to think about all your options. Can’t find a narrow washer-dryer that fits into that corner? Then maybe there’s a shallow model that fits just under that cabinet in your bathroom.

 

The advantages and disadvantages of a narrow washer dryer combo

Advantages

Before you buy, always think carefully about the advantages and disadvantages that a narrow washer-dryer may have. A single disadvantage can outweigh three advantages. Here we have listed the most frequently mentioned advantages of a narrow washing and drying combination:

  1. Washer and dryer in one: The biggest advantage of a narrow washer-dryer is that you have a washer and dryer in one, so you do not have to buy separate appliances.
  2. You save space with a narrow washer-dryer combination: A narrow washer-dryer may just fit in that corner where you currently have nothing. This way you make the best use of all the space in your home and can either put more things away or create more room.
  3. You don’t wash half loads: Especially for a small household a narrow washer-dryer is a good idea. Because the fill weight is very low, sometimes only 4 kg, you never have a half-empty drum. As a result, you save a lot of water.

Disadvantages

The disadvantages of a narrow washer-dryer combination can be a real dealbreaker. If you are looking for a washer-dryer with a large fill weight or a fast cycle time, a narrow washer-dryer is not the right choice for you. Therefore, first look carefully at the following disadvantages:

  1. 8 kg wash and 6 kg/5 kg dry: A narrow washer-dryer naturally has a small fill weight. A washing and drying combination always has a different load for washing and drying. For example, if you can wash 8kg of laundry and only dry 6kg/5kg, you may have to dry some of your laundry in an alternative way. You can choose to turn the machine on again to dry only your remaining laundry, or you can dry the remaining portion on a rack. Whatever you choose, it will always take a little more time. For a large household you need at least 10 kg of filling weight to get all your laundry clean, a household with 4 people needs at least 8 kg and for 3 people 7 kg to 6 kg is enough. Also take into account your amount of laundry, in a household with a lot of sports, you will also automatically have more laundry. The best thing you can do to find out how many kg you need is simply to weigh your laundry once.
  2. Less choice: Not all brands make narrow washer-dryers, so you won’t always be able to choose from the whole range. So you won’t always be able to get all the features you’re looking for. Also note that a small washer-dryer, say 8kg/4kg, is not necessarily narrow. Always look at the dimensions before you buy.
  3. Longer drying time: Because the drum of a narrow combined washer-dryer is significantly smaller, it also takes longer for the appliance to completely dry your laundry. This is because a small space cannot blow as much hot air, so it can sometimes take up to 2.5 hours for 6 kg of laundry to dry completely.
