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.

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,

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.
