The model comes with a one year warranty.

DisadvantagesThe model is not Energy Star Efficient and therefore may take up more electricity when compared with others. Price range is more expensive than usual and a few convenient features have been left out of the model. Some of these non-existent features include the interior light, bleach dispenser, drying rack, child lock and soak settings. Since it contains two devices in one, the LTE5243DQ model is taller than normal models and may not be ideal for homes with lower roofs.

While the washer and dryer work well, I feel like the cycles are too long on both. I also find that the lint screen gets filled up in just a matter of a couple of days.

Also I know for a fact now that my family needs much larger machines. The stackable set came with my condo when I purchased it and they were nice and compact but now that our family has grown, a couple of pairs of jeans does not seem to be a real load.

Because it is electric, I also get concerned about how much it impacts our electric bill every month. That is why I usually use the "energy efficient" setting on the dryer all the time, in hoped that helps keep our bill low.

The knob on the washer seems to stick a bit when I change the cycle type: my guess is that the set is about four to five years old now.

While I know Whirlpool is a reputable brand, I think our next washer and dryer set will be larger, front load (most likely) and hopefully quieter.

With a baby in the house, we try not to run the machines overnight especially the dryer since it makes a loud buzzing alarm when the cycle is over.

Still, it's better than apartment living and carrying quarters-- which was my fate before this set!
