If my tenant's happy, I'm happy
Posted:10/1/13
"I'd recommend it if a friend had a very small specific depth requirement as we did... one of the cons is remembering to shut off the waterline to the unit after each use in order to limit the pressure on the hydraulic system. The free delivery/unpacking was great, although of course our unit was put into a closet right by the entryway. I did have to hire a plumber to install the waterlines with shutoff valve, which was an additional $200.
We've had this unit for a month now in an in-law apartment and my tenant's had no complaints. The only inconvenience I was concerned about was that the water line to the unit is supposed to be shut off after every use. She tells me she figured out how to delay the start time of the wash so that it ends right before she gets home and can then turn it off."

Washer dryer combo
Posted:5/5/13
Pros: great machine for saving space, great for working couple
Cons: too small for family
"Remodeled an 800 sq ft upscale house, needed to preserve every sq ft possible but having never used a condensing dryer and reading reviews I was nervous that cloths might not be dry when done. After 20 or so loads we have been 100% satisfied. Jeans, towels, or light stuff all seem to come out just fine... Very happy with the product and the retailer."

Happy Customer

Pros: see below
Cons: see below
"I purchased this after researching many reviews on combo machines. I live in an apartment with limited space for a machine so this was the perfect solution. I was skeptical if it would actually work as I had separate washer and dryer machines prior to moving in to my apartment, which I had to sell as there was no hookup for the dryer. I have been pleasantly surprised with this machine.
Owned: 2 1/2 months.
Household size: 2 adults, 1 baby, 2 cats.
Pros:
1. I can put in a load and it is washed and dried when I come back a few hours later. No transferring of laundry necessary.
2. Options: this machine has the most wash/dry options than any machine on the market and it makes a huge difference to me, especially the extra rinse option. The delay option helps me time loads to be done exactly when I get home or get up in the morning.
3. It actually dries your clothes. Other reviewers have complained their clothes were still wet. If you put the dry setting on damp dry they have an initial "dew" on them but it quickly dries in seconds. If you set it to cupboard dry they come out perfectly dry (but a little wrinkly if you don't get to them right away).
4. Incredibly easy to install minus taking out the shipping bolts.
5. Works great for my husband, myself and my newborn baby. I cloth diaper and was concerned I wouldn't be able to keep up, but so far no problems.
6. Lint buildup has not been an issue. In many machines I reviewed lint buildup and subsequent failing of the machine was a big issue. I have not found this to be a problem in this machine (and neither had other reviewers). Occasionally, I wipe out the inner rubber ring to remove fibers and cat hair build up.
Cons:
1. The top is made of reinforced cardboard (I think they assume you will put it under a counter top). I find this annoying as I am afraid to put anything wet on top of it and ruin the laminate on top of the cardboard. I will eventually need to find something more sturdy to place on top of the machine.
2. There is a slight mechanical grease smell for the first few months when the machine is running, which also transfers to your clothes if you leave them in the drum for a few hours after they are dry. However, this smell has GREATLY decreased in the 2 1/2 months I have owned the machine.
3. The shipping bolts are a pain in the tush to remove. I had to have the maintenance guy in my building help me with a huge wrench to get them undone. Have someone help you with their removal unless you have industrial sized tools and save yourself some trouble!
4. I can't fit my huge, bulky queen sized mattress pad I love so much into the machine. However, I have accepted this and run to the laundromat across the street or a friend's house as overall this machine is saving me a lot of money.
I will update with any future issues or praises."

No problems so far
Posted:2/7/12
Pros: features are great - easy to use cycles are clear, examples -count down timer / delay /dryer sensor
Cons: some clothes may be a little wrinkled.
"I am very pleased with my purchase of this combo unit. I took a long time and investigated many units, and it looks like I picked a winner. I had a combo unit in the past so I am aware of the advantages and disadvantages it has. This unit is much better than the Equator I replaced. The only problem so far is cotton khaki pants come out very wrinkled on the dry option. I might have to investigate using the iron dry option. However, I will say that my no iron khaki pants come out of the dryer fine."

Luv this machine
Posted:11/10/11
Pros: dries really good.
Cons: nothing yet.
"Gets the job done. Washes really good. Looks amazing and easy to use. Everything is pre-programmed. And it really dries the clothes good. Not like my old machine that left the clothes damp."
