Best washer-dryer combo
Those who have limited space and don't have a dryer vent installed might consider the LG WM3987HW, which washes and dries laundry in the same tub. It's about the same size as a regular washing machine, and the dryer function doesn't require a vent to the outside. However, users do need a nearby sink, drain or tub for water drainage. This washer-dryer combo comes with an assortment of features, including a moisture sensor, electronic controls and an extra-hot sanitary cycle. In reviews, owners give the LG WM3987HW high marks for its washing performance, energy efficiency and easy installation. However, drying performance is less impressive because it can take several hours for laundry to dry completely, and the LG can only dry half as much laundry as it can wash. Like all washer-dryer combos, the LG WM3987HW is not available in a gas version. The warranty covers parts and labor for one year, with 10 years of coverage for the motor and lifetime for the drum.
