Splendide 7100XC

Splendide is a well-known brand when it comes to laundry appliances. We have the WD2100XCP and WD2100XC ranked on #7 and #8, which are, hands down, among the best combos ever made. In this review, we will introduce Splendide 7100XC combo, designed specifically for multifamily housing customers. The washing procedure is pretty much the same as the two aforementioned combos, but the drying is slightly different – with a unique condenser drying system. Efficient and effective, this ventless combo offers wide range of installation possibilities since it doesn’t require outside venting.

Pros and Cons:
Positives:
  • Energy and water efficient.
  • Super silent – you won’t be disturbed when it’s working.
  • Built tough in order to withstand the rigors or everyday use.
  • Automatic load balance system.
  • Low heat option.
Negatives:
  • It operates slowly.
  • Tricky to drain.
  • Users have experienced lint problems.
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.

Conclusion: A good capacity and more cycle options are the main reasons why this washer/dryer combo has a good customer satisfaction. However, the lint problems and the long performance are large drawbacks.
