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.
