We live in a small condo and are thinking of getting one of these babies:

Does anyone have any experience with combo washer/dryers and, if so, can you recommend any specific brands or impart any words of wisdom?

Thanks,
Daniel

Try posting on the laundry forum.

My usual scepticism says they won't be nealry as efficient as separate units, nor as convenient. Would a stacked unit fit?

If one breaks down, you're out till you get the other fixed. Been there.

I had a Kenmore front washer/dryer. They could be stacked, or side by side!! Best washer/dryer I have ever owned!! Front load washers are the way to go! Clothes come out cleaner, they use less water, they come out dryer, thus u dont use as much energy with the dryer!! Cheers. Scott

We live and travel full time in a 40' motorhome and have a Splendide washer/dryer combo. Ours works fine but loads are very small, so we end up doing a load every day. If you get one, make sure it's vented. Splendide offers some that are not vented and I've heard they take forever to dry.

I had the non-vented (condenser dryer) variety. I hated it after a while. The problems for me: small capacity and long cycle time. They are small machines, so you have to do more loads. But you can't get the next load started while you're dying a load. That adds up to a lot of lost time.

For me that added up to big piles of laundry waiting to get done for just a two person household.

Does anyone know of a VENTED combo washer/dryer unit on the market? Thanks in advance for your help.......
