Making Sense of Stackable Washer Dryer Reviews

Whenever you are shopping for a new washer and dryer, it never hurts to look at reviews of your favorite brands. There are numerous sources of information you can explore, from magazines, online publications, and manufacturer’s website reviews, to community forums. As you are researching stackable washer dryer reviews on community web forums, there are few things to keep in mind to help you make sense of comments and feedback left by others.

  1. Is the Feedback Left about the Actual Appliance? Far too often, people are quick to post negative comments when they receive poor customer service. This in no way implies the quality of the stacked washer dryer model or how it compares to other similar models.
  2. Is the Review for the Right Stackable Washer and Dryer? There are several different types of appliances considered stacked machines. Some models are a washer dryer combo consisting of a single appliance with a top loading washer on the bottom and a front loading dryer on top. Other models are stand-alone front loading appliances that can be stacked using a stacking kit.
  3. Was the Dryer Given Poor Feedback because It Is Ventless? Ventless drying operates differently than traditional drying. Drying cycles tend to take longer than vented drying, but, energy-wise, use a fraction of electricity to fully dry your clothes. What may have been left out of the review is the increase in cycle time only averages around 30 minutes longer than vented dryers.

A Washer Dryer Combo Is ADA Compliant

One issue for rental properties which have handicap accessible units and a central laundry area is ensuring that people with disabilities are able to easily access the laundry area. This can be a major expense for some communities, in situations where the shared laundry area is not on a ground floor. In addition, the washer and dryers in the laundry area have to be front-loading, and cannot be stacked, in order to be ADA compliant. For most communities, meeting the ADA requirements is a challenge due to the size of shared laundry areas and the placement of appliances within the space. The easiest way to avoid the expenses associated with making shared laundry areas ADA compliant is to install a washer dryer combo in all of your handicap accessible units.

A combination washer and dryer is a front loading appliance and meets reasonably accessible ADA requirements. They are easy to load, unload, and control for people with disabilities, even wheelchair-bound people. The placement of the appliance within the rental home does need to be in a location where there are no obstructions in front of the washer and dryer in one.

Installation is not difficult, even in rental homes without existing laundry connections. All that is required is access to hot and cold water lines, a drain line, and a standard 3-prong 110V outlet, since the dryer uses ventless drying technologies. The appliance could be installed under the countertop in the kitchen or bathroom, or by converting a hallway or bedroom closet.

How to Spice Up Laundry Day with an LG Washer Dryer Combo

Doing laundry does not have to be a major chore taking up your entire day. There are several things you can do to make the hours pass more quickly and ensure you maximize your time. Before starting a load of laundry in your LG washer dryer combo, plan out what you want to do while the cycle runs. Since the combination washer dryer washes and dries your clothes in the same appliance, you will have between 2 ½ and 3 hours per cycle. During this time, you could complete other household chores, such as running the vacuum, dusting, washing dishes, or running errands.

While you are doing laundry in your LG washer dryer combo and completing other household chores, listening to your favorite music helps keep you motivated and focused on what you need to get done. You could also turn on the television and listen to your local news and weather in the background. If you have children at home, and they are old enough to help with chores, involve them in the laundry and cleaning activities by engaging them in various games. For example, you can have them help sort clothes by placing their clothing into individual stacks of the same colors, and reward them with a treat for correctly color matching all of the clothes.

Benefits of a Washer Dryer Combo

There are several benefits of a washer dryer combo, compared to conventional laundry pairs. Both the washing and drying functions are combined into a single machine to eliminate the amount of space needed for individual washers and dryers. An all-in-one washer dryer can be installed in just about any location in your home, apartment, condo, or business, because it fits into small spaces.

Another benefit of a washer dryer combo is ventless drying. You do not have to worry about dryer vents or special dryer electrical cords and connections. The drying function uses advanced condensation drying to remove moisture from the clothes. The only types of connections required are access to hot and cold water lines, a discharge drain, and a 3-prong 110V common household outlet.

You can convert an all-in-one washer dryer into a portable machine if you do not have any existing washer connections in your home, condo, apartment, or business. The conversion kit attaches to the water intake hoses and discharge hose to create a single-piece connector which attaches to most kitchen faucets. You should also add a wheel kit to make it easy to roll the washer dryer up to the sink and store it out of your way whenever you are not using it.

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.

Save Money with a High End Combination Washer Dryer

When you desire high end features in your washer and dryer, but are looking for a way to reduce the amount you spend, you should consider a combination washer 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.
