What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lots of options! But.. We purchased this unit to replace a miele front load, after 18 years the motor went serving a family of 4. Now just 2 of us so decided to try an all in one. We have now owned this unit for almost 2 years. It cleans well, but without a dryer vent all the lint and whatever gets trapped around the door seal and makes a real mess! So thats not impressive. Clothes never come out 100% dry. Understandable as it drys with steam. So still need to finish drying. It takes forever to do a load. For the price! Should have bought 2 pieces! PS. We also purchased that extra storage cupboard that the unit sits on! Dont its useless. Nothing fits in it and its exspensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ventless Drying I bought this two months ago as I live in a condo and needed a ventless dryer, but wanted a full size washer and dryer but did not have space for both. This machine provided my solution. It does do a very good job of washing and drying as long as you don’t put to large of a load for drying. I can wash and dry a decent size load with no problems. I also love the fact that I don’t have to get down on my knees to get clothes out of a stackable. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I love virtually everything about it I put the clothes in dirty and a couple of hours later take them out clean and dry. It does everything but fold them and put them away. I also love the lighted tub and the little song that plays when it finishes. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good washer, no good dryer If you are looking for a washer, it is perfect. The dryer part is not working for me. The clothes come out damp and wrinkled. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from compact design. all in one! I live in a small condo so space is at a premium. This washer/dryer combo saved me some much needed headroom and I could put stacking cubes above it to take advantage of the space freed up by my previous laundry center. Pros: wash and dry without having to change machines, I can put laundry in it and come back later in the day to find it dry and ready to stow away. It also is ventless, it does vent a bit of heat but doesn't require a dryer exhaust pipe. Cons: it takes a lot longer. maybe 3-3.5 hours for wash and dry cycle. I also can't wash a batch and dry a batch simultaneously like I could with a separate washer and dryer. I knew a lot of these things going into the purchase as I had done a lot of reading on the Internet so, knowing this, I am perfectly fine with this purchase. My hope is that it lasts a long time but I guess I'll find that out along its lifetime... [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Space saver. Not much plumbing required This unit has all required Settings for a light soiled to heavy soiled cloths. The installation took less than 2hrs. As there is no separate drying unit, this saves lot of space. Dryer is working fine as long as the drum is not filled fully. 5shirts, 3 pants and inner wear took around 3hrs of total wash and dry cycle. Over all happy with the outcome so far.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Uncomplicated Purchase I bought this about 3 weeks ago and am not sure I prefer it over the "traditional" washer and dryer (2 separate pieces)! I think i have just about figured out the wash cycles but No Where NEAR figuring out the drying process! It runs Forever and clothes are STILL not dry! (And I Do use the spin cycle as directed in the manual.) I have started just timing the dryer and hanging the clothes up in the house to finish drying! It also leaves lint on dark clothes even though I DO separate them! During the first week I tried live chatting to get some advice but both people I talked with seemed to have No Clue what I was even referring to! For the price and aggravation of trying to figure this thing out, I almost wish I had kept my old washer and just had the heating element replaced in my old dryer! It's nice but I guess it's just not what I expected! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
