Pros and Cons:
Positives:
  • The clothes smell great and clean.
  • Great unit for people who are limited in space.
  • Easy to use due to easy setup.
  • Auto Door Lock – if your kids are running around in your laundry room, they won’t open the door of this unit.
  • Under counter installation capable.
  • Energy efficient and cleans tough stains.
Negatives:
  • Cycles are quite long and vary greatly.
  • The clothes often come out wrinkled.
  • It’s not quiet and you can’t turn off the buzzer.
  • The door might be locked for hours after the washing/drying cycle.
Negatives common to all combos:
  • There is no exterior lint trap for the dryer. The lint tends to collect around the rubber seal and you have to empty that once a month depending on the frequency of use.
  • The clothes need to be free to tumble in order to dry completely. Fill only half of the drum if you’re going to use the dry function.
  • Noisy water pump that expels the water from the machine – although active only intermittently during the wash and rinse cycle.
  • Produces a bit of heat.
