Where to Purchase a Portable Washer and Dryer Combo

Question: Where can I buy a portable washer dryer combo machine?

LG Washer Dryer Combo

Unfortunately, if you are wanting to purchase a combination washer dryer in person at an appliance store you might be out of luck. Washer dryer combos are not as common here in the United States as they are in Europe, so not many appliance stores actually stock the units. The best place to shop for a combo washer dryer is going to be online. You’ll be able to browse a larger selection and read reviews from other people who have also purchased the product.

Before purchasing a washer dryer combo, you should make sure that you know exactly what you are getting. Washer dryer combos are ideal for 1-2 people, but will probably not be able to handle the laundry for a family of 4 or more. Because the washer and dryer are contained in one unit (and operate a little differently), it will take longer for the machine to wash and dry your clothes than a full size separate washer and dryer would.

Combo washer dryers are perfect for people who like to throw in a load of clothes in the morning before leaving for work and come home to finished laundry. Many machines feature a delay timer as well, so you can put your clothes in, pour in the detergent and tell the machine to not start washing for a few hours so the clothes will be finishing up as you arrive home instead of just sitting in the dryer all day getting wrinkled. They are also energy efficient and use less water than full size units.

Another great feature of combination washer dryers is they don’t require standard washer dryer connections. You don’t have to have a special outlet or a dryer vent to operate one. You can simply attach the combo to your sink faucet to operate, and since most come with caster wheels, you can roll it away once you’re done using it. It is possible to install a unit semi-permanently as well and hook it up to a water line to run.

If you think a combo washer dryer is right for you, then I would start your shopping experience by checking out the LG and Haier models currently on the market.


  1. I have been looking for months for something like this, but can’t seem to find anyone close to my area that carries them. We just downsized from a 4 bedrm house to a 2 and minus the convience of a washer/dryer connections for what now are just sitting in storage. Its hard to not to be able wash your clothes when you want too. I really really want one of these combos, but they are so outta my price range.
