Summit SPWD1800

by Jaro

RANK #10:

Summit SPWD1800 belongs to washer dryer combos with a very appealing and modern design in white color. Good and cheap alternative to the more popular and better performing LG units. As you can already tell based on my previous comments on combos, I really like this design as it has a nice big LCD display. This is a must when it comes to my preference. Actually the design overall looks very modern and cool. Unfortunately, the problem with this combo is that I found a number of negative comments and reviews so that’s why I didn’t put this machine higher in the rank. But let’s look at it’s features closer, shall we?

Pros and Cons:
Positives:
  • Nice modern design.
  • 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 – 5 hours
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.

Conclusion: The best things about this washer dryer combo are the small size, modern design and low price.

    what is error 13

    • Hi Cynthia,
      it means that there is a problem with heating or the heating fan motor and a solution is according to the manual calling the service to repair it. It is also possible that some accumulated dust or lint on the heat sensor cause the problem.

      In that case the fix would be to take the top of the machine off and
      clean the heat sensor which is on the top back of the machine. However I’m not sure about the warranty issues here. For a complete list of Error codes check out: http://www.washerdryercomboz.com/faq/#22

    Do you know where replacement parts are available?

  • Jocelyn

    I found that after running the machine on wash/dry the clothes were still damp. I re-dried them but they did not come out feeling fully dry. Does anyone of a different setting that may be more effective? Or is this a common issue?

    • Try to put less clothes inside the drum and it should be ok I think
