Tips: After several years use of a Splendide combo-unit we have found the basic permanent press express wash cycle is used most. We also prefer the low-spin option for clothes. The drum can spin so fast, the clothes can be smashed up against the side of the drum wall and - especially in pants and jeans - wrinkling can occur. So, when washing pants and jeans, we recommend removing the clothes after the wash cycle and giving them a good shake before returning the items to the drum for the drying cycle. Also, the "as seen on TV" dryer-balls really do work! Surprisingly, they are not noisy in the Splendid either. We have had best results using the dryer-balls when drying pants, jeans and towels. Many RVers complain about wrinkled results from their machines. The secret to avoiding this problem is to use the low-spin cycle combined with liquid fabric softener - it really works. The manufacturer advises against using dryer sheets in the vented units, feeling the dryer sheet may be sucked into the exhaust vent and become a fire hazard, so use liquid fabric softeners - or dryer-balls. Another secret in the Splendid model: after drying the clothes for a few moments, turn the dryer timer to zero. The unit will continue to tumble, with no heat. This is useful for drying delicate items or "fluffing" items.
I turned into an all night adventure (not the washer/dryers fault) as I was also installing a new sink, water lines, stand pipe, drains etc.
First off, this thing is heavy as heck. I currently have a standalone Haier compact washing machine and a compact dryer - they are about 40-60lbs each. This guy is supposedly just 145lbs but holy-roly-poly batman it's an awkward 145 that feels like 200 lbs. My other washer has little nooks on the sides you can use to lift it, this guy doesn't. The only thing you can safely lift from is the bottom or sides - you'll break the soap dispenser tray if you try to use it, and there is nothing on the back to lift with. As I installed mine into an RV, just getting it up the three little stairs into the unit was half the battle. You have to tip it and walk one side of the unit to move it around - the feet a rubberized so it's not going to want to slide anywhere.
As for the actual installation, the only issue I really had were those ridiculous shipping bolts on the back of the unit. It's a long rubbery grommet with a green cap and a heavy duty bolt running through it. The manual says to just remove them like you can unscrew the bolt and pop the grommet off by hand... that was soooo not the case on mine. The grommets are so tight that I had to use pliers to twist/pull/shimmy the grommet (4" long!) out of the hole. Suprise, that didn't work. I actually ended up breaking the head of the plug off and the main body dropped down inside the back of the unit. So now I had the pleasure of tipped the guy over on the side, unscrewing the bottom (easy enough, 4 screws) and trying to find it. That was just the first one. The method that seemed to work the best for me was to unscrew the bolt, then insert the bolt back into the grommet by about 1/2" (same hole it came out of) and use the bolt to pry at the head of the plug from the inside until you can pull/pry that ridiculous thing out. I spent at least twenty minutes trying to get the first one out (that broke) and referenced the manual 3 times looking for some trick.. but all it says is "remove it"
I'm not sure if mine were an oddball case but holy heck that was the hardest part of the install.
If you're having issues with yours, feel free to break the plug - it'll fall inside and you just have to go get it.
After that fiasco, I moved it into position, hooked up the water lines (hoses are really long.. too long imo they are like 8-10ft) and hooked up the dryer vent. The dryer vent is standard 4" but only because of a built in adapter that takes it from what looks like a 2" port to a 4" connection. I used a hose clamp to secure the dryer vent hose to the adapter, but don't overtighten this - I set my power screw driver to the lowest torque setting and went with that.
Once it was all hooked up, I had to read the manual just to understand what all the buttons and knobs did. Fyi, the 1-13 wash cycle dial thingy is not a light-heavy load dial... each number represents a different wash OR DRY setting. I set mine on 11 at first thinking "ok that's a notch under heavy" but it was actually a dry wash (wth?) cycle that kicked the dryer on. I thought the thing was broken at first when the dryer came on instead of washing. After reading the manual a little better (cmon guys it was like 4am at this point) I realized "3" was a good standard wash mode and it started up and went about it's business as you'd expect.
I set the dry time on 120 mins, that was way to long for one pair of jeans, a shirt, a pair of socks and a towel. The unit ran for over 4 hours... will need to play with settings to cut that down a bit - I know I over dryed the clothes as well. The manual suggests 80-100 mins for a normal load of clothes so I likely should have done 60mins.
One note about the spin cycles... with it being a front loader this is a different kind of spin vibration then what I was used too. My old washer was a top loader, and when it would spin up with an uneven load it would rock the unit back and forth and get noisy. This is front load, so the clothes are pretty much always going to be uneven (all at the bottom right!) and while the unit has stabilizing bars built in it shook the living daylights out of my travel trailer. I was actually concerned my trailer was going to shift off of the stabilizing jacks! No joke! If you're in a travel trailer, make sure you have a plan to secure this thing down very well. I haven't secured mine in yet, so hopefully, some of that trailer vibration will go away once I do. If it doesn't, I'd literally knock a star off from the amount of shaking it makes my 34' unit do. On the upside, my bed shook so much I felt like I had installed a vibrating bed and it shook me right to sleep.
FYI, if you order this from the same seller I did - check your amazon messages and answer all unknown callers that call you. They call to schedule a freight delivery and if you don't answer or check your amazon messages they cancel the order on you. I had to order twice to get mine.
Small enough to fit in the door, quite that we can hear the TV still.
We did get the floor brackets to secure it in place from shift in and the 90 degree vent piece... So far all seems good. Yes. The cycles are longer then a top load one washer... All front loaders take longer. Yes. The drying times are longer. The machine is vented but it just takes longer. IT'S CONVENIENT! AND I DON'T HAVE TO GO TO THE LAUNDROMAT EVERY WEEK!
Read the manual and follow the directions....
