Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a video review for this model of the washer dryer combo.
Pros and Cons:
Positives:
  • Unique platinum finish adds modern style.
  • Perfectly sized to fit under counters and in tight 24″ spaces.
  • Easy to install, easy to use.
  • It’s ventless and uses condensation to make the vapour release its moisture and be pumped out along with cold water used for this purpose.
  • Uses little water.
Negatives:
  • Too long to wash and dry – over 3.5 hours.
  • Very few features.
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.

Reviews and Prices:
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.
