This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
One unit. Two machines.

We all have different lifestyles. Some of us have very big households and with that, also very big loads of laundry! Some others have smaller households or just started a new life in their first house and their laundry will definitely look a lot different every time, size wise. That's the reason that brought us to create DualWash and DualDry. Those units feature a second machine on the top, smaller in size, not in performance.

Navigating through the options of the cycles, made easier.
Our cycle settings are completely customizable, to make sure you get your clothes washed the way you want. Start with selecting a pre-made program using the dial, then, move to the options on the side and select the extra features you want and the temperature, spins and rinses. The mini top load unit works separately from the main big capacity drum, it also comes with its own power button on the control panel.

Smaller body, bigger technologies.
While our machines are designed with a slimmer body, they contain much more advanced technology inside of them:
  • H&B Waterfall: the best presoak cycle available on the market, using our special top water jet which can auto-detect the water pressure needed;
  • H&B Turbodrum: both DualWash and DualDry are equipped with our own engineered TurboDrum, a tungsten drum powered by a DirectDrive brushless motor that offers a wide range of sensors that can detect the load weight for an effective wash;
  • Additive sensing: adding your own final touch to the wash is very important, that's why we've created the revolutionary Additive Sensor, located inside of a special tray, it can sense your additive and unlock special wash types related to that;
  • LintStop: DualDry is the first ever dryer to feature an Auto Lint Removal system that can detect the lint inside the lint tray and remove by sending it to the drain hose included with the DualDry unit.

Informations about the objects:


Full name in catalog:
- DualDry: H&B DualDry - Tumble Dryer
- DualWash: H&B DualWash - Washing Machine

Edited tuning for better experience:
As you could guess from the preview pictures and from the brand description, these machines have all the upgrades pre-installed. With that, comes a price increase: they both cost 3000 simoleons.

Littledica, you are my new favourite modder! Since buying 'Laundry Day Stuff, I haven't used the washing machine/dryer because it was so ugly and out of place in my modern kitchen. This is fabulous! Thank you so much!

These are fantastic! You have some major talent. At first I thought that this was an all-in-one machine (which is something I was going to try but then I remembered that I have to idea what I'm doing and should probably start smaller) but these are so cool. I need them in my Real life. Nice work!

Wonderful! Thank you so much for all your hard work. I know how frustrating it can get, so you don't see a lot of new meshes from me. Great job on the tuning and thanks for sharing the phong fix!

Is this just another washer and dryer set? The description is quite confusing.

Thanks, I love the design and stuff but it's a little glitchy , I can't upgrade this washing machine. Also, the last light to the left of the washing machine is basically not even on the actual surface.

You can't upgrade it cause it's completely updated by me when you buy it, you'll have all the upgrades pre-installed! You can notice that by the add additives option

You make some of the most awesome and incredible appliance mods!!! These compliment your Sim Kitchen stove and H & B fridge quite nicely. I can't wait to add them into my game. Any chance you'll make a stacked or 2-in-1 washer/dryer combo version?
