If you're shopping for a new washer and dryer, you're probably planning to buy them as a matching set. So which laundry pairs available today are the best of the best? We've compiled a list of five washers and their companion dryers that we'd gladly put in our homes.

Kenmore's 29133 washer and 69133 dryer.


Large capacity: Kenmore 29133 washer and 69133 dryer

Kenmore's $1,100 29133 washing machine has an excellent stain removal score and a large 5.3-cubic-foot capacity. The $1,100 69133 dryer -- also from Kenmore -- dries clothes fast. Together, this large-capacity duo will handle your laundry needs with little effort on your part.

Samsung's FlexWash washer and FlexDry dryer.


Smart features: Samsung WV9900 washer and DV9900 dryer

Samsung's $1,899 WV9900 FlexWash is actually two washers packed into one appliance. The main compartment houses a 5-cubic-foot front-load washer; a 1-cubic-foot top-load washer sits atop it. The $1,899 DV9900 FlexDry works in much the same way; it has two dryer units that you can run separately or at the same time. Both the FlexWash and the FlexDry have a ton of features, including app access so you can check in on your washer or dryer's status remotely.

The Samsung WF45M5500AZ washer and DVE45M5500Z dryer.


Impressive performance: Samsung WF45M5500AZ washer and DVE45M5500Z dryer

Samsung's $999 WF45M5500AZ is an excellent performer -- it removes stains better than pretty much every washer we've ever tested. The dryer wasn't bad, either. It dries clothes fast, but both appliances had cluttered display panels that will take some getting used to.

Kenmore's 25132 washer and 65132 dryer.


Great value: Kenmore 25132 washer and 65132 dryer

For an entry-level top-load washer, you can't do much better than Kenmore's $600 25132. Not only does it perform exceptionally well, it's often on sale at Sears for even less. Kenmore's matching dryer, the $600 65132, is similarly minimal. It doesn't have any fancy features or smart options, but it dries clothes well. It's an excellent overall value.

The Electrolux EFLS627UTT washer and EFME627UTT dryer.


Attractive design: Electrolux EFLS627UTT washer and EFME627UTT dryer

Electrolux's $1,349 EFLS627UTT front-load washing machine has a smaller 4.4-cubic-foot capacity, but it looks great. So does the companion EFME627UTT dryer. Both feature a digital display in the center of the control panel that doubles as a knob for selecting a cycle.
