When shopping for appliances, it can be difficult to find what works best for your home. This is often true with washers and dryers. The following information is designed to help you choose between a washer/dryer combo and a washer/dryer set. First, it is important to distinguish between the two. A washer/dryer combo is an all-in-one unit that both washes and dries your clothes, while a washer/dryer set is two separate units, one for washing and one for drying. There are benefits and disadvantages to both setups. Determining which is better for you depends on a variety of factors including how much space you have and the amount of laundry you do.
