As technology advances combining washing and drying in one appliance appears to be the ultimate laundry experience. However, studies have shown that although you save on space and the purchase and running costs are virtually the same, the combination drying function can be below expectation, and a combined wash and dry cycle can take up to six hours and use an excessive amount of water.Is it better to buy a washer and dryer together or separately? Read on to find out all you need to know…
When you need to replace your washing machine and tumble dryer
Bear in mind that washing machines and tumble dryers will probably need replacing at the same time as they experience equal wear and tear which can mean higher initial costs. And you’ve got to learn all about your new appliance twice!But when you buy them from the same manufacturer you’ll find that they not only match in design but also the controls and settings will be the same. Capacities will also complement each other so a full washing load will also be dried effectively, and warranty coverage means that repairs can be carried out on either appliance easily.Washer dryers have a comparable washing performance and half the footprint of two separate appliances. You don’t have to unload clothes to put them into the dryer, and you can wash or dry independently.Disadvantages come in the form of only being able to dry half the capacity you can wash, and you need the washing and drying cycle to finish completely before you can add another load. A staggering amount of water can be used so if you use your dryer regularly then this high water consumption may be an issue.Washer dryers are more suited to small houses and households and are of benefit to those with mobility issues. But they are more complicated to install with plumbing and water inlets that need to cater for the drying component.
Washing machine troubleshooting
When the following issues are happening this may be the time to consider new appliances, particularly if they’re old and no longer under guarantee.LeakingWhen your washing machine is leaking onto the floor this is an indication that it needs replacing. It may be a sign that gaskets or rubber seals have worn, or on older models, it could be a hole caused by rusting.Not fillingKinked hoses, blocked taps, and incorrect water pressure can all result in an appliance that won't fill. Faulty solenoids, wiring, and connections can all be to blame, but so can the age of your appliance.Excessive noiseIf there’s an unusual amount of noise during cycles this could simply be that the parts on the drum or elsewhere in the machine are wearing out.
Tumble dryer troubleshooting
Not heating upThis could be an issue with the heating elements, the thermostat, or a thermal load cutout that has tripped due to overheating.Making a banging noiseTechnical problems such as drum and motor bearings, tension pulley wheels, and the drum itself can all contribute to excessive noise, particularly if your tumble dryer is an older model.

Worthy of a 10 star review. The customer services of this firm was far above others I had worked with recently.
I had a faulty dishwasher and Exclusive Repairs was able to arrange for an engineer to visit the very next day (during a busy Christmas period). Not only did I get a courtesy call to confirm booking, I also received a courtesy call prior to the engineer arriving.
Dimitre (apologies for the misspelling), was a courteous, friendly and patient engineer. After inspecting and testing the dishwasher, multiple faults were found and rather than making money out of me to fix one thing and make me think all is good, I was advised of the various costs and issues and a recommendation, I was charged a discounted rate because they were not able to fix it unless major work was done or a replacement was bought.
Their rates were already very competitive, but I appreciated the honesty so much (especially during these tricky times).
Thanks again! Will use your company in the future and hope others do too.
I use this exclusive repair many time now and can’t fault them! I work as Building manager and have to arrange repairs or replacement of different appliances. Started to use exclusive repair now for several tasks, from new instructions to repairs or quotes, they always come across professional and value for money.
Just had new dish washer installed by Craig and Kiril their 2 technicians. Who were so calm and knowledgeable.. done excellent clean job and plus trained my housekeeping team how to use new appliance.
Treated me honestly. I booked a repair for a washing machine, received a call on the day of the booking telling me that they had good idea of what the fault was likely to be, and would I like to save myself the call-out fee based on their experience, and the age of my washing machine. I felt treated fairly. Thank you
I was pretty satisfied with the service.They were the second company attending to fix my dishwasher, where they succeeded and the previous company did not.Very fast and friendly service.
I am also very happy they used a protective sheet to protect the floor.
Overall - excellent service!
Great service. I am satisfied with the quality of my dishwasher repair. Before I called them I was wondering if it will worth the cost to repair it instead of replace it. I am so happy I called Exclusive repair and definitely recommend them.
