# Dryer cu

I see that most washer cu is around 5 but dryer cu is around 7. If your washer is 5, would you benefit from a 7.3 instead of a 7?

The washers I have looked at are 4-5 Cu ft. capacity The dryers are 7-7.3 cu ft.
My logic is if you have a 5 cu ft washer, what benefit would having a dryer any larger than 5 cu ft?
I don't understand why the average Cu Ft of dryers is larger.

You can put two loads of wash into one load in the dryer. Wash often has to be sorted by color, dryer loads do not. You also need space to tumble properly.

Haven't done a load of wash in a home laundry, have you? Stop and think for a minute why the dryers in a laundromat are so much bigger than the washing machines. Then it will come to you.

Given the same air-flow, a larger capacity dries clothes faster because there is more liquid-air surface area. A dryer needs more space to allow the clothes to fluff in warm dry air. I like the largest I can find with the fewest dials, knobs and features. A larger dryer is not necessarily more effecient than a smaller one, though.

Cu is an abbreviation for copper. Your post makes no sense.

Really? I might have understood cu' -- but CF would have had me wondering if the dryer had Cystic Fibroses. . . or a Compact Flash. . . or if he was asking for a comparison. . .
I think if clarity was the OPs goal, writing "Cubic feet" would have been his best bet.

I just replaced most of my light bulbs with CF, cubic feet.
