Washer and dryer combos work by first washing clothes using water and detergent, similar to a traditional washing machine. After the wash cycle, they either use a built-in heating element to dry the clothes or employ a condensation drying method. This all-in-one design saves space and simplifies the laundry process, making it ideal for smaller living spaces or situations where separate washer and dryer units are not practical.
Yes, washer and dryer combos are typically designed with features such as automatic load sensing, which helps optimise water usage, and efficient heating elements or condensation drying methods to minimise energy consumption. However, individual efficiency can vary based on factors like the specific model, usage patterns, and maintenance.
