Operating a Washer Dryer Combo

A washer dryer combo operates slightly differently from traditional laundry pairs. Because both the washing and drying functions are combined into a single appliance, the actual cycle time is much longer. Even though the cycle times are longer, it is no different from the combined time of using individual appliances to wash and dry your clothes. It is important to be aware of the longer cycle times so you can adjust your laundry habits to get the maximum benefits out of your new all-in-one washer dryer.

Whenever you want to do a load of laundry, you have to remember to program the appropriate functions. For instance, if you want to just wash the clothes and hang them outside to dry, you need to disable the drying cycle. You can also run the dryer function by itself in cases where you hand washed delicate clothing and want to dry it on low heat.

The drying function in your new washer dryer combo uses water condensation ventless drying, which is different from conventional vented dryers. Ventless technology removes moisture from the clothes by recycling the heated air and using cold water to convert steam back into water as it is removed from the clothes. This is a much more energy-efficient method for drying clothes, and costs less than vented drying, but may require the dryer to run slightly longer than what you are normally accustomed to with a vented dryer.

The Modern Way to Do Laundry Is with a LG Washer Dryer Combo

Already popular in other countries around the world, a LG washer dryer combo is the modern way to do laundry. By incorporating the latest technologies and features, any home, regardless of whether it has a laundry room and washer and dryer connections or not, can have in-home energy-efficient laundry. The tumbling action of the front loading machine gently washes and dries your clothes and gets them cleaner using less detergent, water, and electricity.  

Installing a LG washer dryer combo provides flexible options, depending upon your home and existing laundry connections. If you already have a laundry area, you gain more space with the single appliance. Your new model is connected to hot and cold water lines, the discharge drain, and a standard 3-prong 110 V household outlet. You do not need a dryer vent, as the drying cycle relies on ventless drying technologies, which are more energy-efficient.

For homes without existing connections, you can convert the combo washer dryer into a portable appliance. To convert the machine into a portable appliance, you have to add a wheel conversion kit and a kitchen sink conversion kit. Once these are installed, you simply roll the all-in-one washer dryer up to your kitchen sink whenever you need to do a load of laundry.

Another option is to have it permanently installed in an area of the home with access to hot and cold water lines and a discharge line. Some people choose to have their new combination washer dryer installed under the counter, much like their dishwasher in their kitchen.

A LG Washer Dryer Combo Is Ideal for Small Homes

As your kids grow up and move away, you may no longer require a large home. Many people end up downsizing into a smaller house or condo. Downsizing from a larger home and into a smaller one often requires making adjustments to the amount of items you keep. Your new home might not have a large enough laundry room to accommodate your existing laundry pairs, or might lack the necessary connections. However, that does not mean you still cannot have in-home laundry with a LG washer dryer combo.

What Is a LG Washer Dryer Combo?

A LG washer dryer combo is a single laundry appliance capable of washing and drying your clothes. It is designed to give you flexibility in how and where it can be installed. You also do not have to worry about whether your new home has a dryer vent, as no vent is needed for the drying cycles.

If you have laundry connections in your new home, the only ones you need to use are the hot and cold water, discharge drain, and 3-prong 110V outlet. In the event your new home lacks connections, you can have a conversion kit and wheel kit added to your combination appliance to make it portable. The portable washer dryer connects easily to your kitchen sink any time you want to do laundry. You could also have the unit installed under the counter in the kitchen area, much like a dishwasher, if you have available space.

Adjusting Your Laundry Habits When You Use a Washer and Dryer Combo

Switching to a LG washer and dryer combo requires you to adjust your laundry habits. Operating the machine is slightly different from using traditional laundry pairs. Both the washing and drying functions are completed in the single appliance. As a result, cycle times are longer for each load. It can take between 2 ½ to 3 hours to do a single load. Rather than attempting to complete all of your laundry in a single day, you have to break it down over several days.

The best way to make the transition from conventional laundry habits to washer and dryer combo habits is to start running a cycle every time you have a load of clothes to wash. For example, you notice you have a stack of bath towels that need washing in the middle of the week. Instead of waiting until the weekend, wash them now.

You do not have to worry about remembering to put the wet towels in to the dryer, like you do with separate laundry appliances. You could start the load before you go to bed, and in the morning when you get up, you have freshly washed and dried towels. The next day, if you notice a pile of jeans, go ahead and start another load. One benefit you will notice by running a cycle every day or so, is you always have clean clothes. You no longer have to worry about running out of clothes towards the end of the week.

Why a Washer Dryer Combo Is Better Than Shared Apartment Laundry

Making improvements to your apartment complex can reduce turnover rates and increase occupancy levels. One area you should evaluate is what type of laundry services your community provides your tenants. If you currently have onsite shared laundry rooms, you could eliminate these in favor of in-home laundry by installing washer dryer combo units.

Why Should I Convert from Shared Laundry to In-Home Laundry?

Converting from shared laundry facilities to in-home laundry allows you to set higher monthly rental rates. You can charge anywhere from $40 to $100 or more for your units than you are currently asking. Most renters prefer having in-home laundry over using a shared laundry room, because they are able to do laundry at any time and do not have to wait for clothes to wash and dry. Communities that offer in-home laundry also experience higher lease renewal rates.

What Can I Do with my Existing Laundry Rooms?

Because your existing laundry rooms are valuable space, you could easily and affordably convert these into storage areas for your tenants. In addition to offering in-home laundry, you now have another perk available for existing and new tenants. You also earn more revenues by renting out the storage spaces for an extra monthly fee.

My Units Do Not Have Washer Dryer Hookups

Apartments without washer dryer hookups are not a problem with a washer dryer combo, because it uses ventless drying technologies and does not require a special dryer outlet or venting. Additionally, by having a portable conversion kit installed, the machine can be rolled right up to the kitchen sink and connected to the faucet. The appliance plugs into a standard 3-prong outlet and discharges wash water right down the sink drain.

Get Clothes Cleaner with a Combination Washer Dryer

The tumbling action of a front loading combination washer and dryer gets clothes cleaner, compared to top loading laundry models. The circular spinning motion lifts the clothes up and out of the water hundreds of times during the wash cycle. Front loaders are also gentler on your apparel because they do not have to work as hard to get your clothes cleaner. Further, the washer has built in technology to determine the right amount of water to use for each and every cycle based upon the weight of the clothes, unlike top loaders where you have to adjust levels to find the right one every single load. 

Because the washer automatically senses the correct amount of water to use, there is a 50 percent reduction in water usage per cycle, compared to other comparable front loaders, and up to 75 percent reduction over top loaders. Your hot water heater also does not have to use as much energy to heat water for warm and hot cycles, thanks to the reduction in water.

The ventless drying features on a combination washer and dryer make it possible to install the unit just about anywhere in your home. All that is required to do a load a laundry are connections to hot and cold water, a water drain and a standard 3-prong household outlet. If you lack a laundry room in your home, it is not a problem, because there are conversion kits available to make the model completely portable, so you can wash clothes by connecting it directly to a faucet and using the sink for the drain.
