1. How Washer Dryer Combos Work


After loading with clothing and detergent, the drum fills with water to soak, agitate and wash, draining and refilling to rinse, before spinning to remove excess water. At this stage, the sensor dryer kicks extracting moisture from your clothes. They work best with small loads.

2. Washer Dryer Benefits


The clever front load combination offers the convenience of two laundry appliances in one, saving on space, cost and handling. Plus, specifically engineered wash-to-dry programmes deliver ready-to-wear results for small loads. While not quicker than separate washing machines and dryers, there is no transferring clothes between units.

Every Electrolux washer dryer is designed to reduce energy and water usage while maintaining superior laundering performance. The more stars a product has, the more energy efficient it is.

3. Laundy Layout & Washer Dryer Installation


Laundry Layout


Whether a separate room or integrated, the general rule of laundry design is to measure where your appliances will fit, stacking or fixing side by side.


You’ll also need to consider storage, ironing equipment and a sink. A washing machine with dryer is the perfect solution for those with limited space, as the compact front-load design means it can be stacked, or the top used for folding and storage.

Washer Dryer Installation


Most washer dryer combination units don’t require ventilation which means you can install and operate them anywhere with a hot and cold water supply, power supply and drainage. Electrolux offers YouTube installation videos, otherwise employ a professional.
