Great machine - after a little experimenting.
on June 30, 2014
Love this machine! Needed to get a machine on the first floor of our house to avoid going up and down stairs. After looking at many options we put this washer in place of the kitchen dishwasher. Minimal plumbing required and no dryer vent. Fits perfectly in the same space. Really wanted to get the LG due to brand name, but it is too large.
Took a bit to learn how to work the machine, but it is very important to watch their online video. Particularly frustrating was learning how to get the door open at the end of the cycle. Just because the bell goes off does not mean it will open if it is too hot. Just need to wait for it to cool. Did call customer service on on question and found support to be fast and effective. Machine is a bit more complex than most due to combo washer/dryer functions, but taking the time to learn it, will definitely improve your results.
OK all machines of this type are slow and you won't be washing a weeks worth for a family of six. But frequent small loads are easy. No transferring from washer to dryer, so you just put it in and let it run. If you put a bit too much, it may not be fully dry, but just run another 50 minute dry and that should do it. A little experimenting and you can manage wrinkles pretty well.
This is a great option for small families wanting their machines close by, but don't have room for full size. We still have full size machines in the basement for occasional large heavy loads.
Highly recommend this. We were concerned about how well this would work, but it definitely exceeded our expectations. 4 stars only because it is a little hard to learn. Manual could be better.
