How much would a used washer/dryer cost?

I just want a basic and simple washer and dryer. I'm seeing sets on Craig's list as low as $250 for both. What would be an average price for a used washer and dryer (nothing fancy, maybe a few years old).

Also – When I go to look at the machines… should I ask to see them run? What's the procedure? I don't want to get swindled.

Used Washer Dryer

that about the average price for a set…you can ask, but i dont' know if they will run them for you…you will just have to trust your gut if you think they are honest or not when you ask them if they work good.

Most people don't get rid of washers and dryers, as with most large appliances, unless there is something wrong with them. I'd be extra wary of the whole process because chances are great that even if they seem to work when you look into them there is probably some not immediately noticeable flaw. You can get a new low end washer and dryer for about $600 total. Save a couple months and you won't have the worries of paying a repair bill at $75 per hour plus parts.

200.00 to 300.00 dollars. Depends on whether you need a Gas or Electric dryer. Gas is cheaper to operate, but requires a Gas hook up in your laundry area. I would ask to see the machines run, so that you could verify that the washing machines agitator works, as that is the most common malfunction in a washer. Draining issues, and bad pumps are second most common. use a pencil to trip the lid switch while the washer is on to confirm that the upper agitator moves independently from the lower.
And as for a dryer just make sure it spins and gets hot rapidly. shouldn't take more than 2 minutes to feel warm to the touch. My recommendation is to try to find a community outreach group or church to purchase them from, Goodwill, Salvation army etc. as they are more likely to help you, and guarantee their merchandise will work or they will replace it for no charge. Dealing with an individual is a lot less secure. before you drive anywhere call, and ask whether you will be able to see the machine/s working, and what types of guarantees the seller offers.

Craigs list is a good place to start, but your local Good Will or Salvation Army would be better. I found my washer and dryer for $100 (for both) at the Salvation Army by my house
