Tackling two jobs in one appliance takes its toll on washer-dryers, and some just aren't up to the job. Our rigorous independent tests have uncovered several models that are so bad at cleaning and drying that we've highlighted them with our Don't Buy warning.

Don't Buy washer-dryers come in all shapes and sizes, and are impossible to spot when you're browsing in the shops. They often deliver substandard cleaning results, poor rinsing that fails to wash out detergent and a lacklustre drying cycle that leaves clothes soggy or inconsistently dry. 

You can save yourself the hassle of an unreliable washer-dryer by picking a Best Buy washer-dryer instead.
