Best Overall Energy-Efficient Washer and Dryer Set
Beko WFTV10733 24-Inch Washer and HPD24412W 24-Inch Heat Pump Dryer
We love this energy-efficient washer and dryer combo from Beko, not only for its supreme efficiency, but for its forward-thinking innovation. Beko’s smart washer spins at 1,400 revolutions per minute (RPM), which gets extra moisture out of clothes and enables its heat pump dryer to deliver a shorter drying time. It also uses a steam cycle at the beginning of the wash to preheat and loosen stains, which gets laundry cleaner while being gentler on your clothes.
Although Beko has been recognized as “Energy Star Most Efficient” for past several years, in an industry first, the brand also started making their washtubs partly from recycled water bottles, which has taken more than 171 million plastic bottles out of the waste stream since 2017.
As for Beko’s ventless dryer, it ingeniously uses the condensation it absorbs to fill its reservoir for steam drying modes, which delivers less wrinkled clothes. The new model is also 60% more efficient than its predecessor.
