Through our rigorous lab testing, we reveal which washer dryers:

  • do the best job of washing your clothes
  • rinse detergents out most thoroughly
  • use the most water and energy to dry
  • use the least water and energy to wash
  • are gentle on your clothes.

Shopping links on the CHOICE website

CHOICE is an independent, nonprofit organisation dedicated to helping consumers. Clicking a link will take you to a retailer's website to shop. While we make money if you buy through some retailer links, this doesn't influence any of our rankings. 100% of the money we make goes straight back into our nonprofit mission. We're currently testing this service and will consider providing more shopping links in the future. Tell us what you think.
