Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE IT I love these Machines i bought it originally 3 years ago for my wife who was in a wheelchair and could not stand and I still use it now that she has passed 2 years. I love putting a load in when I go to bed and when i get up i have warm DRY clothing to get into it can take 3+ hours to do one load so if you are in a hurry it is not for you.The lint is a little gross (you have to wipe it out) but that is about the only thing there is some hot moist air that does come out of a breather i guess you would call it in the back remember to make sure you allow for airflow,so if you put it in a cabinet like i did.I had a cabinet built to match my kitchen it now serves as a higher part of the island.I tell everyone about it and they cannot believe it,I've even let people try it and they have bought there own! this technology isn't new it has been around for at least 50 years so don't listen to someone who cries saying its to new it'll never last.i would buy another one!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from After care needed It sounded very easy and carefree machine, but each time after the completion, need to cleanup the vent. The clothes are dump and very much wrinkled, so need to take out quickly and need ironing all. A more work if I compare to regular dryer mashine. I wish it had wrinkle free function.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good We downsized to a small townhome and wanted to relocate the laundry to the second floor. With very limited space this was a good option. I have only used it twice but both times with clothes and towels. We installed a small exhaust fan in advance because of feedback about dampness. We don't see that as much as heat buildup and the exhaust fan helps with that. It is louder than I thought as we have it behind a solid wood door but not terrible. The operation options will take a bit to learn but it functions well. We have it directly on the floor, not elevated on the storage drawer and everything comes out dry. It takes a while, but with just two of us, that is not an issue. We recommend it so far! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Washing is great dryer is below average I regret buying a all in one. The washing machine cleans great but the dryer takes a long time and does not dry well. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome for Two People I had this installed about two months ago. After a few loads, I figured out the best way to use this machine. Now I love it. If you have limited space and a small family it's perfect for you. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
