What are Washing Machines and Dryers?
Washing clothes manually, squeezing them and putting them up for drying, can be a very laborious, boring, time consuming and stressful activity. Therefore, Washers and Dryers are here to make our lives easier. Washing Machines and Dryers are household appliances that washes and dries our cloths efficiently and quickly. They not only function well, they also add to the value of the house. Based on ones need, one can buy washing machine and dryers from the different types and capacities that are available in the market.
Types of Washing Machines
There are two types of washing machine and dryer: fully automatic and semi-automatic. While a fully automatic washing machine and clothes dryer provides both washing and drying function in the same tub, in the case of a semi-automatic washing machine the washing and drying normally happens in separate tubs. When you look at the washing machine price list, semi-automatic is cheaper than a fully automatic washing machine. Nevertheless, the extra money that one pays for buying a fully automatic washing machine also comes with various benefits as compared to that of a semi-automatic washing machine. In a semi-automatic washing machine, one has to manually insert the cloths into the tub, then pour water and detergent depending on your need, thereafter the washed cloths need to be put in the dryer section for drying. On the other hand, a fully automatic washing machine calls for no manual intervention once the cloths are put in the tub. The machine knows what quantity of water and detergent is needed to carry out the wash function (which a user can select at the press of a button), and then it automatically performs the washing and drying function.
As far as front loading washing machine is concerned, the loading of the cloths happens from the front circular window. In the top loading washing and cloth dryer machine, loading of the cloths onto the tub happens from the top which is covered by a lid. All semi-automatic washing machine have only Top loading position, while fully automatic washing machine have both front loading and top loading options.

If you would like to avoid manual intervention, it would be good to choose fully automatic washing machine. The cost of a fully automatic washing machine is comparatively higher than a semi-automatic washing machine. And, again, top load washing machine provides you the convenience of not bending in order to push the cloths in the tub, but generally front load washing machine is more energy and water efficient. Top load washing machine price is lower than front load washing machine. Some of the best washing machine under 20000 Rupees includes the likes of Samsung, Bosch, IFB, LG, etc.

Motor Type: Washing Machines have two types of motor: convectional motor and inverter motor. While a conventional motor consumes a good deal of energy, inverter motor is fairly energy efficient and produces minimum noise.
Drum/Tub Material: this can be porcelain and plastic in the case of semi-automatic washing machine and stainless steel in the case of fully automatic washing machine. Plastic is better than porcelain but stainless steel offers better resistance against rusting and, therefore, stainless steel tub is the best.
