Washers are available in several configurations today. The most common is known as a top-load washer, as the clothes are loaded from the top of the machine. Front-load washers are just that, their loaded from the front of the machine. Laundry centers are a one-piece washer and dryer. The dryer will always be positioned on the top. They're available in both electric or gas dryer types. Then, there are combo washer/dryers. This is a one-piece unit that will wash the clothes and then enter into a drying mode without ever needing to transfer the clothes from one machine to the other.
