    The drum is perfect for large loads of clothes. The controls are easy to understand and easy to use. Most users also like the wrinkle guard feature and the accommodating door which is large to make loading and unloading a breeze. The unit is also compact.

    Although it is hard to lift, one can easily push it from one corner of the room to another. Consoles are
    very intuitive, and the noise level is very low. The medium heat setting is perfect for drying regular loads. The lack of too many options is also another plus, since having too many can be confusing.

    One can choose between regular temp and delicate settings to provide the safest drying environment for important fabrics, from towels, everyday shirts and pants, to delicate nighttime wear and silk runners. The unit is also large enough to accommodate other kinds of linens such as bedspreads and comforters, which are kept soft by the air fluff cycle.


    The washer and dryer are not very good at drying cloths as fast as desired. It takes over an hour to dry half a load of clothes, a condition that often happens with months of use. The unit also only comes in one color, which may not be a good thing for those looking for other color options.
