Having second thoughts on LG combo washer/dryer:
Last week, I ordered a 2.3 cubic-foot, 24" compact LG combination washer/dryer (model no. WM3455HW), due for delivery this coming Saturday. Now, I'm getting cold feet. I just fixed our current LG dryer last night (worn roller-bearing sleeve), and noticed how darned quick our vented gas dryer works. On a small test load, it must've taken only about 15 minutes.
Note that the LG combo unit's dryer component is both electric (and only 120VAC), and ventless (a condenser-dryer), so it's not about to win any speed contests in the drying area.
I've read every review published on the LG combo unit. Most are, "We love it--now I can't wait to do laundry!" Typical wash/dry cycles mentioned were about 2.5 hours. However, a few complained that clothes were damp even after the recommended six-hour cycle. The positive reviews outnumbered the negative reviews by about 10:1 or more.
It would be nice to hear more independent reviews, but it seems that owners of combo units are still quite rare.
