Midea MFL70 D1211S and EdgeStar CWD1510W
If you’ve never heard about the company named Midea, don’t worry, me neither. The reason I started to be interested in some more information was that I found they make a really quality washer dryer combo. At least this is what all the user comments I found say about this actual model: Midea MFL70 D1211S.
After a little bit more searching I found that it is actually a re-branded version of EdgeStar CWD1510W combo and the only real change is the logo on the front panel. They even share the high satisfaction level of their customers. So here comes a review that covers both of them at the same time. However, in the Image section you can find images for both models. The difference between the two models is:
- EdgeStar products have a great U.S. based support.
- The EdgeStar is available in the silver version.

|Here you can find and compare user comments and prices from different online stores. Just a small advice – if you find a lot of positive reviews and some negative ones, it usually means that the complaining people don’t use the machine properly, or received some defective piece. I also added a price for a silver style design – EdgeStar CWD1510S.|
|Model and Online Store||Price||Link|
|Midea MFL70 D1211S (Amazon)||$699||Purchase|
|NEW version EdgeStar CWD1550W – white (Compact Appliance)||HUGE DISCOUNT, now only: $889||Purchase|
|NEW version EdgeStar CWD1550S – silver (Compact Appliance)||HUGE DISCOUNT, now only: $929||Purchase|
Conclusion: As I already mentioned, these models are practically the same thing and the remake by the Midea company is just a business matter. However based on the advantages of the EdgeStar model I mentioned at the beginning, I would go with this one. BTW. if you ever hear about a combo called Dometic, RCA 2.0 RWD200 or SOLOROCK 24″ SRWD732, know that they’re just another rebranded version. The SOLOROCK rebrand or the LG washers are a good choice for people living in Canada as some of the other washers I review on my site are not available there.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Please note that there is a new version – EdgeStar CWD1550W.
