Washer & Dryer recommendations

Hello experts,
Time for me to change my 7 years old washer/dryer.
Much appreciated if you have any specific recommendations under $1700 if possible.
Attached are LG models that i looked at in Home depot and reviews look good but need your recommendation if i should go with these or any other model please.

I’m also in the market and this is what was recommended to me - anyone have experience with these? They’re GE and as I understand, GE is newer to the laundry game but they perform well in other appliance categories:
GFW850SPNRS
GFD85ESMNRS

These are a bit pricier than $1700 but there’s also this set that’s a bit cheaper GFW650SPNSN and GFD65ESMNSN

I was checking out the GE. Definitely looks like a solid choice. Has anti bacterial and also can load 35 loads worth of detergent so no filling. I didn’t buy as it’s only available in non-white and I want white. I went Maytag also can store detergent for 10 loads but has white.

If you buy, Best Buy has the 25% Ontario rebate if you’re in Ontario https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/ge ... lsrc=aw.ds but it’s only shipping mid December. Home Depot has the same models and quicker delivery maybe can price match after rebate but I doubt it.

The LG WM3500 is the highest rated front loader on Consumers Reports.. I bought a model up, the wm3700 which is almost identical but steam which we'll never use.. They're very good washers and get good ratings for reliability

The GE’s I mentioned claim to have resolved this issue by creating a venting feature on the washer door. These are pretty new so I’ve yet to see real life experience but all the stuff I see online seems very positive.

When we moved into our new home, the previous owner had:

- Frigidaire 3.0 cu ft Washer (FWS933FS0)
- Hotpoint 6.0 cu ft Dryer (HTMX100ED0WW)

We swapped out the washer and purchased a Samsung 5.2 cu ft Top Load Washer (WA45H7000AW/A2) ... I sold the old washer on Kijiji for $100.

Then I put in a laundry umbrella in the backyard ... summer hang out the laundry.

The around the furnace/water tank area in the basement ... put up a couple of rods ... winter hang out the laundry in the basement ... dries in a couple days.

Still have the original useless dryer.

One of these days (whenever that occurs) will then go get another dryer to replace this piece of rubbish.

Haven't used a dryer in over a decade and really don't intend to.

Laundry dries quickly outdoors in the summer. Laundry dries in a couple days in the basement in the winter.

No need to waste money on a dryer.
