Make the dryers first.

The largest cost on new appliances are the control boards... also what usually fails first..  the KISS (Keep It Simple, Sir) method for manufacturing appliances has vanished, due to the unneeded 'bells and whistles' included in most newer appliances.. this is due to the dropping IQ of humans, with their love for 'shiny stuff' overriding consideration of longevity in operation..  and this will only get worse.. all of my appliances are pre-electronic.  They all work as designed.  Critical spare parts are in stock..  Refrigerator :  compressor start relay, evaporator and condenser fan motors, defrost timer.   Washer : timer assembly, belt.  Dryer :  belt, bearings, heat package.   None of these parts are expensive.   All parts together cost less than one control board for a 'modern' appliance.   A 'front load' appliance will fail quickly if water is involved, therefore top loading washers only..  dryers need to be front load, for the 'tumbling' effect during drying.  I have a dish washer : me.   takes 5 minutes for a cycle, uses no electricity : air dry ftw.  Cats do pre-wash.
