Shopping for a reliable washer and dryer set doesn't need to cost a fortune. Even top-performing brands, like LG and Whirlpool, offer affordable models that still provide the quality they are known for. Below, we will compare the value and features of washer and dryer sets from both LG and Whirlpool.
Since emerging onto the washer and dryer scene with their front loading models of fifteen years ago, LG has consistently received recognition for their innovations in the industry. Their appliances are stylishly designed and come equipped with a variety of advanced features that are ahead of the technology curve.
For over a hundred years, Whirlpool has been manufacturing some of the most reliable appliance brands in the industry. The Whirlpool Corporation produces several familiar and high-rated brands in the United States including Kenmore, KitchenAid, and Maytag. Advanced performance is key to the Whirlpool brand and shines through in their faster and smarter designed appliances.
This ultra high capacity set can handle extra large loads while still getting your laundry to the standard of clean you expect. Eliminating dirt and odors has never been easier with LG's Steam Technology. Real steam permeates fabrics and lifts dirt, stains, and odors effortlessly. Steam Fresh and Steam Sanitize options optimize your results.
With the NFC Tag-On, new cycles can be downloaded to your washer and dryer, letting you choose the right cycle for your laundry needs. The LG SMART THINQ™ app can be downloaded to your smart phone and not only allows one-touch cycle selection but answers questions about your appliances as well.
The SmartDiagnosis™ on this set allows you to diagnose problems without a phone call to customer support. This app records tones emitted from your appliances to automatically provide troubleshooting advice.
Never worry about damp clothes coming out of your dryer again. The Sensor Dry System monitors moisture and humidity levels throughout the dry cycle and adjusts drying times as needed.
Other notable features of this set include the washer's Allergiene™ cycle which removes 95% of common allergens and the dryer's ReduceStatic™ option, ensuring that unloading and folding will be static-free. This stylish set is available in both Graphite Steel and White finishes.
Front Loading and energy efficient, this Whirlpool 75 Series set comes outfitted with many convenient features. Your clothes will look newer longer with Whirlpool's Adaptive Wash Technology. Sensors will automatically adjust your wash cycle's action, time, and temperature.
Optimal fabric care is provided by the washer's Precision Dispense. By releasing the detergent at the proper time during the cycle, fabrics are penetrated more effectively, delivering ideal cleaning results. Precision Dispense also eliminates the need to pre-treat stains.
With the Clean Washer cycle, keeping your washer clean is effortless. Areas that aren't normally reached with the average cycle get cleaned with the deep-fill of the Clean Washer cycle, keeping your machine in top performance.
The dryer is equipped with Advanced Moisture Sensing to prevent damage to fabrics from overdrying. Three sensors measure moisture and temperature and adjust drying times accordingly.
You can start your next load quickly with Whirlpool's Tap Touch Controls with Memory. The sleek control interface allows easy access to all available functions and will remember your last dry cycle settings.
Energy efficiency doesn't compromise drying capabilities with this model. The EcoBoost™ Option saves more energy by using less heat to complete drying cycles.
LG vs. Whirlpool Winner?
Choosing between two such highly rated brands can be difficult. LG and Whirlpool both deliver on performance and affordability.
When it comes to smart technology, LG's Smart ThinQ app can make maintaining your set a breeze. While it is unfortunately only available for Android devices, the user-friendly Tag-On Technology still sets it apart from the Whirlpool washer.
Both the LG and Whirlpool washers are equipped with steam cleaning features and tub cleaning cycles. LG stands out for its additional sanitary and allergen settings. However, there isn't anything like Whirlpool's Precision Dispense system in the LG model.
If you are looking for a quiet unit, then LG delivers the quietest performance between the two sets. The LoDecibel Quiet Operation on the LG set allows you to do laundry without disruptive noise. For those who don't have a dedicated laundry room away from main living space, this will be an essential feature.
The LG dryer features some convenient settings such as EasyIron™ and ReduceStatic™ options, likewise, the Whirlpool model includes the Wrinkle Shield Plus option. Both brands provide some type of moisture sensing technology to prevent damaging your clothes.
Outstanding performance and quality make either of these sets a great choice for your home. Innovative designs are integrated throughout both the LG and Whirlpool sets and your final decision will come down to the slightly different features each brand is equipped with.
