The 7 Best Electric Dryer Models for 2021

Posted by Bob Allaire on Feb 1, 2021 8:45 AM 


 

Are you interested in upgrading your electric dryer for 2021? Electric dryers are a convenient option for homes and apartments that don't have easy access to a gas line and are the most widely sold type of dryer in the United States. Although electric dryers are generally less efficient to operate than gas dryers, new options on the market use sensors and other technology to help reduce their operating costs. You should consider an Energy Star rated electric dryer if you want to save money on utilities!

We’ve pulled together seven of the best electric dryer models from several different brands to help you explore some of the new offerings on the market. Some things to pay attention to are dryer dimensions compared to capacity to maximize available space, and to aim for a dryer with twice the capacity of your washing machine to hit that laundry sweet spot!

Best Clothes Dryer - LG vs Maytag - Reviews, Features, Prices

Posted by Todd Buehler on Nov 16, 2020 9:15 AM 

 

If you think of your clothes dryer as being one of the simplest appliances in your home, think again. Most people think that it just turns a drum and blows heat, but there's quite a bit going on inside that big metal box! If you are in the process of researching a new dryer, you know there are many brands, models, and features to consider (you can check out our dryer buyer's guide for more info). We'll compare LG and Maytag to help you determine the best clothes dryer brand for you.

In order to compare the two models, we need to first look at some of the technology behind drying clothes. Clothes dryers have a variety of safety features to not only go easy on your clothes by preventing over-drying, but also keep your home safe if something malfunctions. The average system will have a temperature range of 80 to 190 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on selected cycles and settings. There are two main ways for a dryer to keep track of the drying progress: moisture sensors and thermistors.

Large Capacity Dryer - Who Has the Largest?

Posted by Todd Buehler on Nov 11, 2020 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!

Top Load Dryer vs Front Load - What is a Front Load Dryer?

Posted by Todd Buehler on Sep 29, 2020 8:30 AM 

 

Researching a new dryer can be easy if you know the right questions to ask. One of the topics you may be pondering is the difference between a top load dryer vs front load (find out more about dryers in our Dryer Buying Guide). 

Virtually, all dryers load from the front, so what do we mean by a front loading dryer? This is a dryer that is meant to aesthetically match the appearance of a front loading washer, with the controls in the front and matching cosmetic details. These dryers usually have the option of being stacked on top of the washer, but it is not a requirement (check out our review of a Maytag stackable washer dryer pair to explore this option). They can also be placed on optional pedestal bases to raise them to a more convenient height. Most consumers who already have or are planning to purchase a front loading washer will want to plan on matching it with a front loading dryer.
