This whirlpool model is great to have when you have limited room in your laundry area. It takes up very limited room and extends to about 6 and a half feet tall. I purchased this washer/dryer combination because our old one lived out it's life and I trust the whirlpool brand name. I initially looked at side-by-side washer/dryer but then I realized that with this model, I can save room in my laundry room and commit that space to other things. This truly has allowed me to do more in the room once solely dedicated to laundry. One way to put it would be two beds side by side for two people versus bunk beds, the difference is quite noticeable!

The washer (below) is very easy to load as the dryer mounted on top of it allows for the door to be widely opened.

One of the few problems I have with this model is that the washing machine's cylinder for washing is a bit small, but that's what is to be expected when you have a slim washer/dryer. One problem that is not necessarily noticeable from the outside is the fact that the dryer does not have much drying power.

I constantly find myself putting clothes back into the dryer for a second cycle because they were not dry enough.

I don't know if the load is too big for the top mounted dryer or if there is simply a problem with my individual unit, but I find this to be the biggest downfall of this product.

Otherwise, it is a quality product for a reasonable price. We have had it for nearly 4 years now and it works the same as it did we bought it.
