If you are thinking about moving into a tiny house or any other type of small space like a studio you might want to consider a washer dryer combo unit. There are plenty of choices to pick from and different features that you’ll want to know about, so I’ll go over all of that with you here and you’ll have a pretty good understanding about what’s available after you’re done reading this post.

Washer Dryer Combo Units Save Precious Space in Tiny Houses

Load capacities range from 11 to 22 lbs. Some models do not even require a vent hook up for the dryer. And if you’re on a tight budget or just don’t have the space to spare I’ll also show you an interesting countertop alternative. Ready? Let’s go…

Top 5 Washer Dryer Combo Units for Small Spaces

Which one would you pick for your tiny house or small space? I rented an apartment once that had an older version of the LG WM3987HW you’ll see here. Since the dryer does not use a vent it takes at least double the normal amount of time a vented dryer would. But you don’t have to take the time to move your clothes from the washer to the dryer so that’s nice. Most of these dryers are more environmentally friendly because they use less power to operate and although they are required to run longer during the drying period they also use significantly less water because of the front load design. But don’t worry, they do make some of the combo units that are vented so that drying your clothes can be faster. Just look out for ventless versus vented and know the difference. 🙂
