How many loads of laundry do you estimate you dry per week?
The number of loads washed and dried depends upon how many people are in the household. A single person is not going to dry as many loads as an active family. Large capacity dryers should be purchased along with a large-capacity washer. A larger capacity dryer can dry larger loads more efficiently in less time. It can also dry larger items, such as comforters, more thoroughly. Shorter drying times extend the life of fabrics.
What drying cycles do you use most often?
Many customers use their dryers for various reasons. Some want to dry an entire load but keep out certain items they prefer to hang dry to prevent shrinking. Some like to throw in an item to help reduce wrinkles. Dryers today can perform a variety of functions, including Steam Refresh and releasing wrinkles to cut down on ironing.
Where is your laundry room located?
Quietness is often a factor for customers purchasing a laundry pair. While the washer generates noise so does the dryer. Advanced sound dampening on certain models can make dryers extremely quiet. That’s very important if the laundry pair is placed near living or sleeping areas. Laundry rooms are not placed just in the basement any longer; many customers have homes where the laundry room is on the second floor near bedrooms or is located right in the kitchen.
How often do you dry items that should not be tumbled in the dryer?
Many items simply should not be tumbled in the dryer, such as delicate sweaters, canvas shoes, or stuffed animals. A heated drying rack is a great accessory to any dryer because it gives the customer more options for how they want to dry their precious items.
Top Loading or Front Loading
Top-load versus front-load is mostly a customer’s preference of ergonomics. Both platforms have models that offer capacity, cleaning performance, fabric care and energy and water efficiency. Front loaders offer more flexibility in configuration as they can be stacked to save space.
Conventional or High Efficiency
Conventional washers are top loading washers with agitators in the basket. These deep fill machines fill almost completely with water. This is the least efficient laundry platform, however, some may be ENERGY STAR® qualified. High Efficiency, or HE, washers are all ENERG Y STAR® qualified and use reduced amounts of water and energy, only using enough water to get the clothes saturated. They come in both top load and front load platforms. Top load HE washers use a wash plate to move the clothes around for cleaning while front loaders use tumble action to clean the clothes. Although conventional washers are less expensive to purchase, HE washers provide savings on the cost of water and energy throughout the life of the product; often enough to cover the incremental cost of the product.
Full Size or Compact
The size of the laundry area and the capacity needed are the key factors used to determine whether a full-size or compact washer is needed.
• Full‑size washers are generally 27‑inches wide and will handle from 12 to 20 pounds of laundry.• Compact, space-saving models are generally 24‑inches wide and will handle 8‑ to 12‑pound loads.
Side-by-Side or Stacked
Dimensions of the laundry area frequently dictate whether the side by side or stacked configuration will be used.
• Both top load and frontload can be set up with the washers and dryers side-by-side. The standard configuration is the washer on the left and the dryer on the right. Side swing dryer doors are right hinged to make access from the washer easier. Dryer doors are generally reversible to left hinge if the dryer is needed to be placed on the left. Frontload washer doors can only be reversed on a few select models.
• Front loaders in side-by-side configuration can also be placed on pedestals that raise the pair 10-15 inches, allowing for better access.
• Front loaders can also be stacked with the dryer on top of the washer. This requires that the washer and dryer be matched. It is usually best to reverse the dryer door when stacking so that the washer and dryer open from the same side. An optional stacking kit is also required.
• Laundry Centers combine a washer and dryer in one unit with a top loading washer on the bottom and a dryer on top.

The most wonderful people work at this store. I found the item I wanted and the staff recommended a new, in the box model that was not the scratch and dent model I located on the internet. The staff was extremely cordial and helpful and I would drive the hour back for the great service and prices I received.Rosalind C. from Albany, NY
My sales agent, Antonio Tinoco, was extremely courteous and professional. The rest of the staff, all the way to the man who helped me put the washer in my vehicle, were equally impressive. My experience in the outlet store, (where I have bought many appliances over the years) was excellent. As soon as you get a matching Bosche dryer in stock, I'll be in to buy it. I'm also looking at a range hood. so, you'll be seeing more of me...James Z. from Greeley, CO
We arrived at the Sears Outlet today to investigate an LG fridge with Amanda assisting us. We were able to purchase the fridge and informed Amanda that we were going to keep an eye open for the rest of the appliances we had picked out for our new home. Amanda suggested that we investigate pricing using the Sears price match policy on brand new appliances. The prices (and service, of course!) were so exceptional that we ended up purchasing the new microwave and range that we've been researching, as well! When we are ready for the new washer and dryer we've got our eye on, we will happily be back to visit Amanda... she made our experience painless and was incredibly knowledgeable!James V. from Oakland Township, MI
I recently purchased my washer and dryer from the Sears Oulet. Our sales rep. Alma was so helpful and extremely nice that I decided to return to buy my refrigerator from there as well. I am really big on customer service and she passed the test with an A++. Thanks for your great prices and great customer service!

Allison was great! She was very nice & personable. She was very thorough with checking the refrigerator for any possible dings or scratches. She went over the Sears Promise & what to expect during delivery. I will be back for my washer and dryer :)!Alicea O. from Antelope, CA
