Washer and Dryer Removal: 4 Options For Whether They Work or Not

washer and dryer removal

Utilizing washers (and more often than not, dryers) is a necessity at this point. Either you have them in your home or you’re going to the laundromat every couple of weeks. When purchased new, the average lifespan of a washer is 12 years and a dryer is 14 years. With constant use, it’s no surprise they’ll wear down and need replacing after over a decade of hard work. But how do you get rid of them when they need replacing? They’re large and bulky, proving difficult for just one person to move. And taking them apart to responsibly recycle would take more time than you’re probably willing to dedicate to their removal. Whether you’re upgrading from a still usable washer and dryer or getting rid of a completely broken set, here are 4 options for washer and dryer removal.

4 Options for Washer and Dryer Removal

If They Still Work…

1. Manufacturer Pick Up

When you purchase your new washer and dryer, ask your retailer of choice if they have a pick up program. When the manufacturer delivers your new washer and dryer, they might remove the old set for a nominal fee.

2. Sell It

Try listing the washer and dryer on Facebook or Craigslist. If you want to create quick interest for a speedy pick up, you could list them for $50-$100. However, if you’d like to make a little extra money from the washer and dryer, you could include a delivery fee if you have a capable vehicle.

3. Donate It

If you want your still working washer and dryer to go to someone who will use them but aren’t concerned about making any money back, consider donating them. Call local charities, shelters, or even churches. They might even be able to pick up the washer and dryer from your location. You’ll probably have to wait a few weeks until they’re available to pick them up, but you’d have free washer and dryer removal with minimal effort.

If They Don’t (or Do) Work…
