Large Capacity Dryer - Who Has the Largest?

Posted by Todd Buehler on Apr 20, 2022 9:30 AM 

 

Researching a new dryer can be an involved process. There are many factors to consider, and size is one of the most important ones. Dryer sizes are wide-ranging, but if you have a large family or heavy laundry needs for some other reason, you may be looking for the manufacturer with the largest dryer capacity on the market. Look no further! (Or, if you want to look further: check out our dryer buying guide for more info on choosing a new dryer!)

We've analyzed large capacity dryer options across manufacturers and found two behemoths that may be just what you are looking for. The overall largest dryer on the market right now comes from LG with a 9.0 cubic foot front load style model. Whirlpool is a close second with a 8.8 cubic foot top load style model (learn more about front load vs top load style dryers here). All dryers load from the front, but "front load style" dryers are designed to match a front load washer, usually with controls on the front of the machine and a windowed door, while "top load style" dryers have controls at the back of the machine and can't be stacked.

Let's explore these highly rated top-of-the-line models! Pay special attention to the dimensions if you're buying extra large washers and dryers because they can be a few inches larger in width and depth than standard size models. Make sure they will fit through your doorways and in your laundry space!

Best Counter Depth French Door Refrigerator - Frigidaire Professional vs KitchenAid

Posted by Todd Buehler on Apr 1, 2022 8:00 AM 

 

Counter depth refrigerators are an easy way to take the style of your kitchen to the next level. They're typically 36" wide and about 70" tall with a total depth of 28-31" including the handles, so they won't stick out past your countertops. In many remodeled kitchens, center islands are installed which carry a dishwasher, slide-in range or wall oven and cook top, while leaving the refrigerator on the out-skirting walls. With a full-depth refrigerator, you will find that there is not enough elbow room to walk between the island and refrigerator. This is a perfect opportunity for a counter depth model. It doesn't stick out, giving you more room in your kitchen and it gives you that clean modern finished look. You can read more about these models in our article on counter depth refrigerators

Side Venting Dryer - Need a Good Side Venting Option?

Posted by Todd Buehler on Mar 16, 2022 8:30 AM 

 

There are several important questions to consider when doing your research on a new dryer. How it will vent is one of them. Depending on the configuration of your laundry room or closet, you may find that you need a good side venting option.

Standard dryer installation calls for rear venting, but due to space limitations or configuration, you may need to look for a model that allows side venting. Not all models do! It's important to bring this up with your local appliance salesperson because different brands and models have different restrictions for the options to install side venting. For example, you may only be able to side vent on one side of the dryer - most gas dryers can only be side vented to the left because of the burner housing. Dryers with "four-way venting" usually will allow you to install a side vent on either side.

Quietest Dishwasher - The Top 10 Quietest Models

Your dishwasher may seem to be getting louder by the day. Over time, the motor, pump assembly, and other parts wear out and cause vibrations that result in louder operation. On top of that, older dishwashers just don't have the design features to compete with new models when it comes to noise. There are dishwashers available today that are literally whisper-quiet!
