Don't buy this
Just moved into an apartment with this washer/dryer combo unit. It is so small you can only wash a days worth of clothes. So you have to wash everyday. But you can't wash everyday because it takes two days to dry your clothes. My first load was a towel, two boxer shorts, a shirt, and 4 socks. 2 days later I am still trying to dry my clothes. The pants I took out of the washer and hung up are dryer than the stuff I left in the machine. I have been waiting for 4 hours for this stuff to dry and it's just as wet as before. Don't waste your money.

Excellent machine with important limitations
This unit has been the perfect solution for our situation: an urban couple in a tiny apartment (who absolutely HATE the laundry-mat!!), with no basement access to setup a traditional washer /dryer pair.
Important note: if you like to dry all your clothes in the machine (i.e. not hang them up to air dry) you will NOT be happy with this condenser dryer. You can only dry a few items at a time, and it will take about an hour and a half. As well, the rubber gasket that seals the door will impart a slight odour to the dried items until it has been used a while. We don't use fabric softener or strong smelling detergent so your results may vary.
The last drawback is that it is pricey. However, we have owned it for 5 years, probably running it 5 days out of seven, and it has been rock solid, with only 1 self-repair needed. After 4 years of light use of the dryer function,the clothes started coming out damp. Googling the problem, I was able to easily take it apart and clean the accumulated lint out of the condenser tube with a long bottle washer. Voila- back to normal, and still perfect a year later.
Replacement parts seem to be reasonably priced from third party vendors to boot. If you're handy, you should be able to keep it running for a good long time.

Best purchase that I have made in a long time.
I own the LG washer/dryer combo without regrets. It is quiet, doesn't take up much space, and gets the job done. I used to hate going to the laundry room or the laundry mat so much that I avoided it until I ran out of underwear. Now I look forward to washing in my LG washer/dryer combo, and my clothes do not pile up as they did in the past. I also live in an apartment that doesn't have a washer/dryer hook up in my unit. I simply connect the hose to the faucet, load the machine, add the detergent, and go on about my business. No longer do I have to go up and down the stairs, hauling laundry, or worrying about some stranger stealing my clothes from the dryer. My LG is convenient, safe, and dependable. I recommend it to anyone who live in a small home.

Set it and forget it.
This is a awesome contraption. You put the clothes in set it and leave. Come back about 3 hours later and you are done. If you want fast its not for you, but if you are like me I have all day.
