The best...washers and dryers

Best Front-Loader, The Fleet Top-Washer, and more

Best Front-Loader
The LG WM3470HWA edged out a few similarly priced rivals in overall performance. Front-loaders generally use less water and energy than top-loaders; this one earned an Energy Star “Most Efficient” rating.

The Fleet Top-Washer
The Whirlpool Cabrio WTW5700XW is a “speed demon” among high-efficiency washers. It’s kind of noisy but can finish a cycle “twice as fast as some front-loaders.”

The Deluxe Choice
A moisture sensor is the most important feature on high-end dryers: It prevents overdrying better than a thermostat. LG’s DLEX5101W leads the pack and features custom programming and a steam cycle.

Best Pairing
“Want a matched set? This is the duo to get.” The Samsung WA5451ANW washer is among the best high-efficiency top-loaders, and the DV5451AEW dryer also “offers top performance”—”with an energy-saving moisture sensor and a steam feature that battles odors.”
