Choosing the Perfect Washer and Dryer Set for a Laundry Room Refresh

When I moved into my new house, I inherited an old washer and dryer from my previous living space. Not too long after moving in, I knew that the time would come to replace them. I wanted to makeover my laundry room, but was holding off because I didn’t want to do a big makeover with old appliances. Eventually, my washer began to fail and it was time to finally upgrade.

Although my laundry room was super small, I was confident that a little paint, new flooring and some new laundry appliances could really bring the space to life. Read on to check out the before and after.

Picking out laundry appliances can sometimes be a little daunting. With all of the technology and new features that laundry sets come equipped with, picking out the right appliances can be a real task. Here’s why this GE Top Load Washing Machine and GE Dryer set was the perfect match for me and my laundry room.

WiFi Connected

As an engineer, I am very in-tune with my technological side, so the Wi-Fi connected feature on the washer and dryer was a no-brainer. The GE Washer has the ability to connect to your phone and allows you to control the washer with your phone and voice commands. From anywhere in the house, you can control and monitor your laundry status with your phone.

This can all be done through the GE Laundry App, which was very easy to download and setup. This app has many features, including the ability to extend your dryer cycles, monitor cycle status and time remaining and track levels of SmartDispense tanks. This is a feature I love because I am always wondering when the load will be finished. Getting a notification to my phone that the cycle is complete and ready for the next load is so convenient.

SmartDispense Technology

The SmartDispense Technology on the GE washer was definitely the standout feature for this GE washer and dryer set. I was so excited about this feature when I was first researching laundry appliances. I had no idea something like this even existed.

The SmartDispense Technology allows you to put up to 75 oz. of detergent into the washer and automatically dispenses the right amount of detergent into each load. How cool is that? I hate pouring detergent into the cup every time I need to wash clothes, so this is a game changer.

Energy Efficient

This GE washer and dryer set is ENERGY STAR qualified, meaning it meets/exceeds federal guidelines for energy efficiency. When I saw that, I immediately thought: money savings. I am constantly washing clothes, so being energy efficient is definitely something I want to keep in mind. If you are someone who likes to save, then this is a great option for you.

Diamond Gray Finish
