Best washer for pet hair?

ladyverAugust 11, 2011

We have two Labradors and a LOT of hair goes into our wash. I would like to get a poll of those with heavy-shedding pets, what washers/dryers you have, and how well they work to remove pet hair. Thank you for your help!

I don't know if this is a case where one washer might be better than another. I notice most of the pet hair in my items gets removed in the dryer, not the washer.

@'stava - I notice that, too. I think it's because of the smaller holes in our drums.

If we are talking about front loaders here, I've read that LG has the largest holes in the industry so would be better for pet hair. I agree with above though that most would probably be removed in the dryer.
