Henry Ford, when referring to his Model T car, said, "Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black." Most appliance manufacturers have taken Mr. Ford's sentiment to heart and you can have any color washer and dryer you want as long as it is white, black, stainless steel, or dark grey.
Sure, there have been bursts of color like red or teal blue. And, who can forget the avocado and gold machines of the 1970s? But, in reality, if you want a custom look for your laundry appliances, you are going to have to do-it-yourself.
Beyond adding a pop of color to your laundry room, there are other practical reasons to paint a washer or dryer. Perhaps you've purchased a mismatched pair during a sale or a scratch and dent floor model. Painting the appliances will bring a cohesive look to the room and prevent the scratches from rusting.
Painting a washer and dryer is a bit like painting a car. You can actually take appliances to a body shop and have them do the work. You'll get a hard, professional finish but that can be a bit expensive. So, let's take a look at how to do the work at home.
1. Unplug and empty the appliance of any laundry. If possible, remove it from the laundry room to an open, well-ventilated space. This will prevent mishaps of paint overspray onto your walls and give you room to work. Always place a drop cloth under the machine.
3. With the 400 grit sandpaper, sand all surfaces that will be painted. The purpose is to dull the factory finish so the new paint will stick. You do not need to remove all of the old paint. Follow up with a second sanding with the 600-grit sandpaper.
6. Follow the directions on the can of spray paint and use steady strokes from left to right to paint the machine. Hold the can 12 to 16-inches from the appliance and spray with a steady motion, slightly overlapping each row of paint. Recoat if needed within 30 minutes. If drips occur, allow them to dry and then sand away before touching up the paint.
If you really want to make your washer and dryer one of a kind, add some graphic touches. After applying the base coat and letting it dry completely, you can add hand-painted details like flowers, polka-dots, or whatever design makes you smile.
Silica is also known as silica or quartz sand. It is a kind of refractory particles, using quartz as the main mineral composition with grain size between 0.020mm and 3.350 mm. According to the different mining and processing methods, it is divided into artificial silica sand and washed sand, scrub sand, selected (flotation) sand and other natural silica sand. Silica sand is kind of silicate minerals with hard, wear-resistant, stable chemical properties. Its main mineral composition is SiO2, silica sand color is milky white or colorless translucent. Silicon sand is an important industrial mineral raw materials, widely used in glass, casting, ceramics and refractories, metallurgy, construction, chemicals, plastics, rubber, abrasive and other industries.
To get high quaity silica sand, after the quartz stone is crushed, the grains need to wash and dry using relative machinery. Baichy sand washing machines have the features of high washing quality, dehydration rate, large capacity and low energy consumption. And the most important point is that there is very little sand loss during the sand washing process. It can remove ultra fines -150 microns from artificial sand and natural sand, finally get output sand dewatered to 12% moisture content.
Then the high mositure silica sand needs to pass totary drum dryer to remove the water content. The rotary dryer could be choosen single drum dryer or three drum dryer. Single drum dryer is characterized by high drying capacity, stable performance, low energy consumption, high productivity, etc. The three return dryer is an efficient combined three cylinder dryer. Large three-barrel dryer, usually 6-7 meters long, is divided into straight barrel and conical barrel. It has compact structure and less floor area, which is one-half of the same output single-cylinder drying area. Both of them are suitable machine to get high quality sand.
Having a washer and dryer combination appliance can help shorten the laundry cycle giving you more time to spend with your family and friends. Instead of having two separate appliances, a washer dryer combo gives you the benefits of both in one appliance, taking up less space in your home, as well as usually using less electricity and energy and more importantly, saving you time and money.

There are a number of features to look out for when buying a washer and dryer made all the more complicated by the fact there are two appliances to take note of, even if it's an all in one. Some features may hold more importance to you than others, but each will provide you with great benefits.
This is often an important feature for families. The bigger the family, the more washing you tend to have at any given time, so having a large drum capacity is obviously convenient. However, don't overfill if you do have a washer dryer all in one, as this can be dangerous when it comes to the drying stage. If you need some guidance to go off when looking at capacity size, a 1kg drum will be able to hold one outfit a 7kg drum can hold up to 35 t-shirts or even a double duvet.
Having a clear and easy to use control panel is essential. If you can't see how much time is left on a cycle, this can be frustrating and if you can't easily understand which function to select, this can be equally as annoying. If you have a washer and dryer combination with a digital display, this can enable you to see exactly what setting your clothes will be washed at. However, you usually get a couple of dials, which have written settings on them. Digital displays tend to be more expensive, but also more efficient.
Having different spin speeds means you can dry your clothes faster and time is of the utmost importance to us all. It also means you can select exactly what setting your type of clothing needs to go on, whether that's a load of whites or delicate underwear. This can be great if you're looking to save energy and select the right cycle for the job.
Some washer and dryers come with pre-set drying times and can also detect with moisture signals, how long a load needs to go on for. This can help with energy efficiency, as well as ensuring the longevity of your clothes so that they're not put in the heat for longer than they need to be.
It's essential that your washer dryer combo doesn't cause your energy bills to sore and it's also important that your carbon footprint is lessened on the environment too. Modern appliances tend to have energy efficiency as their main focus and showcase this in their product descriptions. Look for A-rated appliances and appliances that have a moisture detector in them, so that the cycle ends because the machine can tell the clothes are already dry. Ingenious.
Again, a faster cycle and a faster spin speed mean that your clothes become dryer quicker. This helps to reduce how much time you actually spend doing laundry. If only there was a machine that put clothes away for you as well! Speed for washer dryers is usually measured in revolutions per second and this will appear s RPM on the manufacturer's specifications. If you're after something for a great performance, look for a machine with a RPM of 1,400 or above.
We're not just talking about the size of the drum i.e. the capacity. The larger an appliance, the more space it will take up in your home, which can be frustrating if you don't have that much space. Think about investing in a stackable washer dryer if you're limited with space. There are even manufacturers who make specialist sized appliances, such as an apartment size washer and dryer, which although won't fit in as many clothes or perhaps perform as well as a larger machine, but they're great for individuals who live in an apartment. A compact washer and dryer is ideal for couples or single people, who might not necessarily want to put huge loads on at one time.
We've mentioned some of these previously, but if you're looking for an energy-efficient and smart machine, there are a few smart features that you should look out for. For instance, a dryer that can detect the moisture levels of your clothes, so that when they're dry, the cycle stops. This saves you time and money. LG has created a washer dryer combo that can be hooked up to the WiFi and controlled through your digital assistants, such as Alexa and Google Assistant.
Again, if you're low on space, you'll need to know how stackable your machines are, especially if you're not going for a combination appliance. This means looking at whether the machines are top loading or front loading. You'll also need the appliances to be freestanding in this case and not integrated into your kitchen cabinets.
There are two main types of washer and dryer combination: front load and top load. It's down to personal preference which ones you choose to go for but is usually determined by whether or not you need to stack them in your home to save space.
Most stackable washer and dryers come with the front load feature, as this means they can be placed on top of each other, without any limitations. Many experts suggest that a front loading washer is much more efficient than top loading, as the drum is tilted and water can run out. The washing motion is much more effective and tends to clean clothes better than top loading washing machines. They're also a lot quieter as well, which can be beneficial if you don't have a separate room for your laundry.
Top load washer and dryers are usually cheaper than their front loading counterparts and also tend to damage clothes less, as the spin cycle is not as aggressive. They also tend to have a larger drum capacity, meaning you can fit far more load in it. You can't see inside a top loading washing machine, which can make some individuals nervous, as you can't see what's happening to your clothes. Top load washing machines also don't tend to lock during the cycle, which means you can add clothes throughout if you forget to put something in.
Your washer and dryer combos will come with a warranty, usually between 5 - 7 years depending on the manufacturer. However, most washer and dryer combinations, and stackable washer and dryers, should last for over 10 years, perhaps with some regular maintenance along the way. If you do have a separate washer and dryer, the washing machine will tend to have a shorter life span than the dryer, as you may get more use out of the washing machine.
With proper installation, not overloading the appliances, using the right type and amount of laundry detergent, and cleaning out your lint collector on your dryer, you can rest assured that your appliances will have a long and happy life.
If you're installing your washer and dryer yourself, you'll need a few pieces of equipment to get going. Ensure you measure the space correctly where you plan on installing them so that you know you have enough space. You'll need to bear in mind that there should be a decent enough amount of space behind the appliances so that venting can be attached.
Check the floor is level and stable, as the appliances will need to sit straight to perform well. You should then clean your dryer vent so that you're not attaching a new appliance to a vent that is full of debris and could damage it. Attach the hose from the dryer to the vent. Ensure the hose is as straight as possible, as any bends could mean lint gathers and causes issues further down the line.
You'll also need to make sure your water faucets are near enough by to your washer that those hoses reach, without strain. Make sure you tighten the hoses on to the appropriate faucet (hot or cold) but don't overtighten as this can encourage the water to force through and spring a leak.
Better might not necessarily be the right word. A combination of washer and dryer can tend to be cheaper than buying two separate appliances and they also take up less space. However, separate appliances tend to be able to do their jobs better than a combination. This is because they have more settings and a separate warranty for each. Both appliances are also likely to have their own energy efficiency rating, rather than a mediocre one that a combination of washer and dryer might have. You're also able to do lots of laundry at any one time, which makes separate a great choice for busy and large families.

Even though you constantly remove cleaned clothes from your washer and dryer, both of these appliances have to be periodically cleaned as well. After many loads of laundry, the inside of your washing machine can get built up residues of dirt and detergent, and the inside of the drum can become contaminated with fecal bacteria. The inside of your dryer can also get a buildup of lint, dust and dirt, so a thorough cleaning of your washer and dryer every few months will mean that your clothes will get cleaner.
To clean your washer, start by wiping the top and bottom of the lid off with a damp sponge. Then, remove the soap, bleach, and fabric softener dispensers and the lint trap if your machine has one and rinse them under running water. Finally, add 2 cups of white vinegar to the dispenser and run the empty machine on a hot setting to remove any residue.To clean your dryer, start by vacuuming or wiping down the interior of the drum. For stubborn grime, use an all-purpose cleaner. Then, remove the lint filter and vacuum out as much lint as possible. Finally, detach the dryer lint duct and vacuum that out as well.

Sand washer can also be called artificial sand washer or mineral sand washer. It is a machine used for removing the impurities such as powder dust in the sand product. As it is mainly used for cleaning and washing artificial sand which is broken stone materials, it is also called stone washing machine. Due to the appearance and working principle, it can also be called spiral washer, drum washer, wheel washer and vibrating sand washer.
Sand washer has many outstanding features such as simple structure, stable operation, high washing degree and high output so that it is widely used in many industrial departments such as building site, sand and stone plant, glass plant, power plant and concrete sand making.
When the machine works, the power unit drives the impeller slowly rotate through V-belt, reducer and gear. The sand materials are fed into the washing chute through the feeding chute, roll driven by the impeller and grind with each other, to remove the impurities covering the surface of the stone and sand and break the moisture layer covering the sand particles to facilitate dehydration. At the same time, add water to form strong water flow to timely bring away the impurities and foreign matters with small proportion and to be discharged from the washing chute of the overflow mouth, thus completing the washing process.

Also, it allows you to wash your fabrics and dry them simultaneously and typically comes with a bigger load capacity, so the user can put more fabrics into one load and be done with laundry in a single sweep.
No, but you can try it out if you get certain things right (more on this later). The straight answer is normally a No because the whole set up would be unsafe. Both of these appliances consume a great deal of electricity. Your dryer probably draws slightly more electricity than the washer. Your washer is the most energy-efficient of the two (if compared side by side, that is) there are moments when your washer isnt even using electricity at all, like when it is filling up with laundry water. The washer may only use a larger amount of electricity during the Spin Cycles and Agitation. Running both your washer and dryer at the same draws more power simultaneously and this has been found to strain the home electrical circuit.
In the absence of a circuit breaker, the surge created by the dryer and washer running at the same time would cause overheating in the circuit wiring, a situation that could cause the wire insulations to melt and even catch fire.
Thats probably why you are pondering whether it would be ok to run the washer and dryer at the time. However, the more details you know about your homes circuit layout the more easily you can figure out how to prevent overloads.
