The Best Clothes Dryers for 2013

Are you in the market for a new dryer but you have no idea where to start?  In this blog we help break down some of the best available – and energy efficient – items on the market today.

Bosch WTVC3300US

On a scale of one to ten, this dryer was ranked at just above a 7 for being a well-designed machine with an excellent warranty.  First and foremost, Bosch is a name you can trust considering that it was an Environmental Protection Agency ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year in 2010.   Good Housekeeping also backs this product with one of their coveted seals, which means it went through rigorous testing by an outside group and passed with flying colors.


This item came in at a 7 on a scale of one to ten.  LG ranks high due to the excellent warranty they provide combined with superb customer service.  This particular item has what they call a “Sensor Dry System� which measures moisture in the drum during the cycle and automatically adjusts drying time and temperature for optimal fabric care.

Whirlpool WED9270XW

If you’re looking for a dryer with steam cycles, this product that comes rated at just over a 6 will be right up your alley.  At a price tag around $700, the steam cycles feature helps this product earn its relatively high rating.  This product also offers the “Eco Normal Cycle� which uses 35% less dryer energy when paired with a washer from the same line.


This product is also rated at just over a 6 due to such features as unique cycle options and an antibacterial option.  It also comes with a lint filter cleaning reminder.  Having a clean lint filter ensures that your dryer is running as efficiently as possible.

Maytag MEDE250XL

The last dryer on our list ranks at just over 5 ½ due to its wide selection of cycles.  This dryer will seem especially impressive if you’re replacing an old dryer that you’ve had for years given the technology that’s standard in dryers today. One neat feature is Maytag’s “IntelliDry Sensor� which allows the dryer to know how wet the clothing in each respective load is at any given time.  A convenient feature, “Freshen Up�, can smooth away wrinkles so you can forgo getting out the ironing board.

This is just a short list of the dryers that are available today.  Make sure to do additional research online and ask people that you know what their experiences are.  Happy dryer shopping!
