Beautiful looking Combo comes with compromisePosted
Living in a condo, I've to be very aware of size. My laundry is located in 1 of the bedrooms so I wanted to utilize the space for dual purposes. I also wanted a clean open area that didn't need to be enclosed. After hours of research, this brand/model seemed to fit the bill. As already warned, these combos take a lot longer to compete cycles and the clothes have not felt 100% dry. However, the machine is appealing and compact so I'm able to fit it in my other needs. I plan to alter my washing routines such as starting cycles when I leave the house being it takes so long to complete. Not much I can do on the clothes feeling damp issue. In the end, it is worth the trade off. Last point to note is I did smell a burning like odor on one of my loads. I'll have to watch this being I've only put 5 loads thru this new combo.

One unit laundry MACHINE(!)Posted
There is a bit of a learning curve to use a machine like this, but after you've used it a few times, you can learn how to deal with the quirks. Quirk 1) you've to use the machine for about a month to get past the weird smell it leaves on your laundry when you dry. If you've a closet full of linens that smell musty because you hardly use them, you can wash them and help get the dryer past this stage. I unfortunately don't have a lot of linens. So I held off washing my sheets in this machine for a month. @@@@@@@@ even now though I still have money on a laundromat card, but don't need to use anymore, however that's a personal problem) Quirk 2) this machine will emanate an odor like you've turned your laundry area into a beauty salon and you're giving someone a perm. I do want to stress it only smells like you're giving someone a perm; it won't irritate your eyes or anything. The smell does go away quickly after you're done with laundry. Quirk 3) if you use it to dry clothes, don't waste time choosing the fragrance of your laundry detergent or fabric softener. The drying cycle seems to remove all fragrance before it's done. And it's the drying cycle that removes it. I've used the "hand wash/wool" cycle on a wool sweater and because it doesn't go through the dry cycle it did retain the detergent fragrance. So unless you've a lot of clothes you've to hang dry, you don't need to worry about fragrances. Quirk 4) you've to remember to press the dry button if you want to use the dry cycle. I've only used two wash settings on the machine (normal and wool), but neither will run the dry cycle by default. Obviously I wouldn't use this to dry wool, but nearly all my laundry can be ran through the normal cycle and it slightly annoying to have to hit "dry" before starting a load. I think there's supposed to be a way to set the machine setting to make a custom cycle that might include the dry cycle, but I'ven't found this quirk so irksome to look into this. Quirk 5) don't wash pillow cases with fitted sheets. They will get tangled and not dry well. While everything seems to come out damp, but by the time it cools off, it will feel completely dry. The exception I've found has been pillowcases that have gotten stuck in the folds of a fitted sheet. It won't take too long for them to dry, but it's just as easy to put them in a different load. Quirk 6) loads do seem to take a while, but seems how I don't have to transfer loads from a washer to a dryer so I've just learned to do sheets first, blanket and pillowcases second (if I think the blanket needs to be washed), then weekly laundry. Quirk 7) if you wash anything with metal (e.g. buttons and/or zippers), don't touch the metal when you pull out the laundry after you dry it. IT WILL BE INSANELY HOT! If you find out you cannot avoid touching metal on your clothes when you take it out, consider letting your laundry cool a bit before you take it out. Now while I might have quite a few quirks, most are not an issue [anymore; e.g. quirk 1]. The biggest problem is how long it takes to do a load, but with as little effort it takes to do a load of laundry, I definitely can live with this quirk. You can get quite a bit done when you don't have to go back to your washer to transfer laundry to a dryer.
