Maytag Atlantis Dryer, with moisture sensor to help save energy and dry your clothes to a certain temperature.…
1. Check your dryer hookup. Your washer and dryer hookup dictates what type of dryer you need so check it first.
2. Rate your space. When space is limited, consider going vertical by stacking a front-load washer and dryer or simply getting a stack washer and dryer unit. If your space is flexible, front-loaders, front-loaders on pedestals or top-loaders are all smart options. Pay close attention to the depth and width of your laundry space. Front-loading machines are generally deeper, and top-loading machines are generally wider.
3. Set criteria for your settings. Dryers certified by the National Sanitary Foundation (NSF) use high heat or steam to provide allergy relief. You can also use steam to refresh outfits by relaxing wrinkles and removing odors. Some dryers have express cycles with increased airflow for faster drying, while others dry wool items without shrinking.
4. Keep track of your energy usage. Some dryers have sensors to measure laundry dampness and dryness. This helps save energy since the dryer doesn't run as long. Dryers with ecomonitors on the console display energy usage and cycle efficiency.
5. Go for a matching set. Your washer and dryer are engineered to work together. If a washer has a higher spin speed, it means less drying time. Your matching dryer has special cycles and sensors to keep clothes from being overdried, making them last longer.
