LG Ventless Energy Star Full Size Steam Washer Dryer Combo with Allergiene
My house is very small and old and space is at a premium. My house was designed in the early 1900s and laundry rooms were apparently not in the architectural design plans. We had a regular washing machine and I line dried all of the clothing only using the laundromat during long periods of bad weather. When that washer machine died we purchased the LG Ventless Energy Star.
The washer is actually quite nice to use. There are a multitude of water temperatures, soil levels and spin speeds as well as different drying times that will meet anybody’s laundry needs. I find that the machine uses relatively little water and is energy efficient. I also find that the clothes come out nice and clean but the machine is a little bit slower to wash than my old machine.
With the drying time added a load of laundry takes about 4 hours from start to finish. This may not be the fastest thing in the world, but again my other option is to hang the wet clothes outside or all over the house so I do not complain! Sometimes you do have to re dry items because it does not always completely dry the laundry.
Although I am happy with my machine I am not happy with the people of LG. I did have to have it serviced because the laundry was not spinning properly. Because the spin cycle was not doing its thing, the laundry was too wet to dry. The customer service people were frustrating to say the least. It took weeks to have a tech come out and then even more time to get the parts and then even more time to have the tech put in the new part. This meant that the washer/dryer was out of commission for over 6 weeks. Since the part was replaced I have not had any other issues with the machine.
If you are in a "need for space" crunch, I do recommend this machine. If you have the space however I would probably go with a separate washer dryer set up until the technology improves.
