Use the menu to the right  for selecting other brands like  Bosch Washing Machines, Kenmore Washing Machines and Roper Washing Machine to view their product ranges.

Duet Washing Machine

This series is a front loading system and has two variations the whirlpool duet washer and duet sport with the main difference being the sport version has a slightly smaller capacity. These can be bought as single units or matching washer and dryer combinations with prices starting from $350 for a top loader and $650 for a front loader in the USA. In the UK front loaders start from 200 pounds and top loaders from 350 pounds upwards depending on the model. Prices vary between the two countries as front loaders are more popular in the UK with top loaders prefered in the USA.

6th Sense Technology – Measures the size of the load and determines how much water is needed to clean it. Sensors monitor the inlet temperature, gradually warming water to keep cleaning enzymes at optimal effectiveness. Plus, sensors prevent oversudsing in low-water systems

Quiet Wash Plus Noise Reduction System – Keep operational sounds inside the washer and out of living areas with sound-absorbing materials around the wash basket of the drum.

Automatic Water Levels – Regulates the amount of water based on the size of the load. Only the amount needed to clean is used, increasing efficiency.

Quick Wash Cycle – Clean small, lightly soiled loads in less time. Plus, increased spin speeds extract more water for faster dry times.

Whirlpool Duet Washer

“Ilove the idea of getting my laundry done in half the time! You truely can do double loads and the clothes still come out clean! I am very happy with how easily I can strip beds and have them all put back together within a couple hours. Plus with 3 kids it always seems that that hamper is overflowing.”

“I have had my Whirlpool Duet Washing Machine and Dryer now for 2 months and I love it. It has saved me time because of the super capacity of each and because the wash time is shorter than my old machine. It cleans well. The dryer is much larger than the washer so clothes come out less wrinkled than my old set. The wash and dry time is well matched so washing many loads a day is easy – no backlog. The dryer senses dampness, so the dry time is adjusted to the needs of the individual load. They are easy to use and do a great job and certainly the best washer and dryer pair .”

Whirpool Duet Sport

Whirlpool Duet Sport

“If you want a dependable, quiet, energy efficient, money saving washer that gets clothing amazingly clean and fresh smelling the Whirlpool Duet Sport is your washer”

“The Whirlpool duet sport is a great cleaning machine. This machine uses very little water or soap. The 1200 rpm spin is just the best thing about this machine. Clothes come out of the spin cycle so dry that it takes no time at all for the dryer to complete it’s drying cycle. Both of these machines save a bundle on operating costs.”

“I got a Whirlpool Duet Sport clothes washing machine and it is great. Since using it we have saved much time in washing clothes. I also got the clothes dryer to go along with it. The dryer actually finishes drying clothes before the washing machine finishes the clothes. How great it that?”

Whirlpool Cabrio 

The Cabrio series also comes as single units or washer dryer matching sets and includes the same features as mentioned in the duet description above plus -

Bulky Items Cycle – The specially-designed cycle is ideal for cleaning bulky items like comforters, sleeping bags, down jackets or pillows, all of which fit easily into the wash basket.

Cradle Clean Technology – Simulates hand washing during extra care cycles by “rocking” the tilted wash drum instead of spinning it.

Whirlpool Cabrio

“I don’t have much time to do laundry, so being able to fit all of my bedding in the wash at the same time really helps me out. I love being able to control how much water it pulls out on the spin cycle so that the clothes don’t come out feeling stiff. ”

“Best buy I ever made wish I had bought a whirlpool years ago” 

“I purchased the Cabrio washer and dryer pair about two years ago because this model had received good reviews, and I really liked the style and capacity of the set. The Cabrio series looks fresh, clean, and modern, but is not flashy; the simple color palette should keep this set from looking dated any time soon. The controls are great. There is one knob and the rest of the controls are via electronic keypad”

Super Capacity Whirlpool Washing Machines

The Xtra Roll Action Plus agitator of these larger top load washers handles large loads by circulating clothes from the top of the wash basket to the bottom, where cleaning takes place. The Extra Rinse option allows you to add another rinse before the end of the cycle, while the Quiet Wash noise reduction system offers quieter operation. The Handwash cycle gently cleans your extra delicates so you don’t have to.

Whirlpool Washing Machines

“This whirlpool washing machine is one of the best washing machines! I have always had good luck with Whirlpool products – but this one exceeded my expectations. Many top loaders are prone to tangle clothes – but this one does not. It does a very good job getting really dirty clothes clean”

“Whirlpool has the biggest tub on the market and it is direct drive, so there are no belts to break. Well made, long lasting, quality washer. I will always buy Whirlpool. Lasts on average 15 years. Very strong washer, works very hard for me! Buy one today.”

Bosch Washing Machines Reviews on Washer Dryer Products

Bosch Washing Machines

Use the right side menu to view other brands such as LG Washing Machines, Samsung Washing Machines and Roper Washing Machine ranges and leave any washing machine reviews in the form at the foot of the page.

These ranges are named differently in the USA and the UK but are basically the same the difference is that no variable voltage selector is built into bosch machines so they can only be used in the country they are bought in. That is why the names are different so that you dont buy the incorrect one for your countries voltage system.

In the USA they have the nexxt and axxis ranges with the main difference being that the axxis range is the smaller more compact model. This model can be stacked unlike the nexxt range which are the larger capacity versions.

The three UK ranges are the Logixx, Classixx andExxcel

Bosch Washing Machine

The Bosch Logixx range of washing machines have 8kg and 10kg wash load capacities. So you can wash larger loads in fewer washes and with even less creasing. The larger drums easily swallow bigger items you couldn’t wash before, like rugs, blankets and duvets.

Bosch Classixx washing machines are extremely easy to use. The uncluttered fascia design features a control dial to select the programme and temperature, special requirements are selected via buttons.

The Bosch Exxcel range of washing machines feature a large LED display and easy-to-use programme control. The range includes machines that offer a larger 7kg capacity, easily handling heavier washing loads saving you time and money, while still delivering an A-class wash performance.

 

 

Bosch Washer Dryer Reviews

WFL2463

“I own a Bosch WFL 2463 GB. Had it 5 years now,use it every day, very often twice daily. As yet not a single problem, or breakdown. Very Happy”

Bosch Appliances

WFL2260

“Excellent machine, we had ours ten years before it went to the laundry in the sky! Master board failed, cheaper to buy a new machine than put a new part in an old machine. I have bought another Bosch Washing Machine.”

WFO2465

“I brought this item on the basis that Bosch had a good reputation on producing great washing machines and also because I was fed up of my old Hotpoint dancing around the kitchen and scaring my dog Tazmin. It is absolutely fantastic, washes perfectly, very quiet and has a great range of washing cycles. My dog is very happy now and can even be in the same room whilst its carrying out a wash, Pricelss. This Item is well worth the extra money and Gets a 5 out of 5 rating from me and my sister, who also has one now.”

WFR2866

“This is the top of the range front loading washing machine from Bosch, and boasts quieter running, pause functions, detailed display, reduced running time and water consumption and some fancy wash detection computing. The machine looks very very nice and as you walk around it you can see it has a very sturdy build quality. The drum size is fair – not the biggest on the market. In comparison with my last machine an old Hoover the noise is practically inaudible. The rattle of a clapped out DC10 taking off is replaced with a friendly hum even during fast spins.The program range is excellent, especially for cooler and delicates washes. The spin range is from 400 – 1400.”

WFC2060

“I needed a narrow depth washing machine for a poorly designed studio flat kitchen and the 2060 was the perfect answer.It is now nearly 3 years old and hasn`t missed a beat. My only comment is on spin it sounds like a 737 on reverse thrust but I can live with it as the overall quality and reliability overide that.It packs a lot of punch for a small load machine and I have been entirely happy with it.”

Bosch Washing Machine Features

AQUASTOP Leak Protection

AQUASTOP is Bosch’s patented multi-stage leak-protection system that safeguards your home in the unlikely event of a washer leak. If the sensor detects a leak, the machine automatically shuts down water flow and pumps out any remaining water.

Bosch Washing Machines

XXTRASANITARY Cycle

Using a thermostat-controlled, intelligent sensor for improved precision, this innovative cycle heats up the water to 170 and maintains this temperature for exactly 3 minutes. After killing 99.9 percent of most common household bacteria, the water temperature is reduced to a gentler 150 to prevent fabric breakdown. Clothes are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized with no damage to the fibers.

AQUAGUARD Cycle

This wash cycle has been engineered to waterproof ski apparel, rain gear and other breathable outerwear. Simply pour your waterproofing product into the dispenser chamber, select the AQUAGUARD program and renew the waterproof layer of your garment.

ECOACTION

For ultimate efficiency, Bosch washers offer ECOACTION, which adjusts water temperature and cycle length with the touch of a button to reduce energy consumption up to 20 percent per cycle.

1,200 rpm Spin Speed

Bosch washers spin your clothes at an extremely high speed, helping to remove the most water possible before you move your clothes into the dryer. This minimizes energy usage during the drying process.

SENSOTRONIC PLUS

We offer SENSOTRONIC PLUS, a network of sensors that analyze your wash, determining load size, temperature and more, then adjusts levels automatically to care gently for everything from wool to silk.

Nexxt DLX Series – Nearly Silent Wash System

By combining a high quality brushless motor system, a low-friction belt drive and specially engineered housing for additional sound insulation, Bosch washers are the quietest in the industry. The Nexxt DLX Series washers have a 52 to54 dBA silence rating.

Touch Control with LED Display

Axxis washers are extremely easy to use and clean thanks to their convenient touch control.Simply activate each cycle with just a touch, then use the easy-to-read display to view your selection and monitor your progress.

Washer Reviews

Kenmore Elite HE5 Steam Washer, June 28, 2008

“I’ve had this machine for just over a month. I absolutely love it. It definitely uses a lot less water than my old washer, and is a lot quieter. In addition I’m saving on drying time because more water is removed during the high spin cycle. I would definitely recommend this machine. Our tax stimulus check was well spent.”

“Pros: Appearance, Capacity, Digital Display, Durable, Easy to Use, Efficient, Features, Space efficient, Quiet, Time Savings, Utility Savings, Value for Money “I bought this washer after going through 2 top load washers in 5yrs. I was hesitant on spending the extra money to get the machine, but I was fortunate to pick up the display model for 723.00 so I got the cheapest washing machine. After using it for 2 months, I would of gladly spent the 1500.00 it retails for. As noted in the other reviews, it’s quiet, uses less water, (I saw my water useage cut by 66% and that’s with me washing any and everything I coulf put in the thing). My clothes are cleaner with less detergent. The steam cycle is handy, but is not needed on most items due to the machines superior cleaning abilities. It does take longer to wash a load of clothes; however, you can easily fit about two traditional loads in it at a time and you can dry a load of this size in about 15-20mins. (seriously).”

Kenmore Washing Machine

Most of these front loaders can be bought with a matching dryer to give your kitchen or laundry room a very good stylish look.

Kenmore HE2t 3.7 cu. ft. King Size Capacity Front Load Washer

“I’m very happy with my new machines I recieved them on friday at 5:45 p.m just like the delivery center said the installers were very courteous and cleaned up and gave a detailed run through of the washer and dryer, we have ran both units constantly for three days with king size loads and the washer ran very quiet and cleaned the clothes very well i have 3 kids and pets that means lots of laundry and the HE2T seems to handle the job. The matching dryer drys clothes just as good as the washer washes them Kenmore did it again great job. I will definetly keep buying Kenmore products as they are the best washer and dryer maker.”

Kenmore 3.1 cu. ft. High Efficiency Front Load Washer

“I purchased this model about 10 years ago. I had my 5 kids and my wife all using the machine. The only thing replaced in 10 years was the pump, and when I changed it out, I found out that the rubber sleeve that connects to the pump was full of change, earings, various screws and miscellaneous small objects. I have since made it a habit of regularly cleaning out that sleave, and always find more goodies. Other than that, this thing has taken a beating until the rear bearing finally gave out, and I hope to replace it with similar unit that matches the dryer. I was surprised to see all the complaints…maybe those that had a bad experience were the only ones prodded into making a review.”

Top Loading Kenmore Washing Machine 

This range has a choice of 16 appliances and when looking to buy washing machines from it expect to pay between $300 and $960 or 11 to 11 pounds in the UK. Sizes range from 2.1 to 4.7 cu capacity for these top loaders.Buy A Washing Machine

Reviews

Kenmore Elite Oasis HT 4.7 cu. ft.

“We have had this machine for over 2 years now and with 4 kids in the house it has been a life saver, With the large capacity, we can get the laundry done faster, You must read the manual before using, This is a high end machine, Not a table calculator …. If you follow the manual you will not have any issues getting your clothes clean. It has saved us money in the cost of operation it must be the cheapest washing machines to run. You will love this if you give it try.”

Kenmore 700 3.5 cu. ft. Capacity Top-Load Washer

“I bought this 2/05/09 and has performed fantastic. The noise issue raised in other reviews has not existed with my experience. I just made sure it was level and it works fine. Since it is fairly new I cannot say as to durability yet, but Kenmore makes the best washing machines and I do not anticipate problems. Our Clothes come out clean and the spin cycle really gets the water out for quicker drying times. I would say buy it.”

Kenmore Elite Oasis™ Agitator 4.5 cu. ft. Capacity Top-Load Washer

“We’ve had this washer about a month now and all I can say is Wow! Large, fairly fast and quiet. Does a vey good job at getting clothes clean. What I really like is the size! This washer has cut my number of wash loads in half. Very quiet and full of washing options, this top loader does it all. If there are any quirks it would be clothes are really wound up when done. I take the time to straighten them out before drying so that is no real problem, and my drying time has shortened alot! Big, quiet and efficient, what else do you need?”

Kenmore Washing Machines Laundry Centers

This range has 7 appliances to choose from with a price range of $800 to $1000 or in the UK 11 to 11 pounds.

Reviews

Kenmore Stack Washing Machine

Kenmore 24 in. Space Saver Laundry Center with Electric Dryer

“When we retired and down-sized, we moved to a small1100 sq ft home. We had no place for our washer &dryer. My daugher and son-in-law looked around and bought us this Kenmore washer/dryer and it fits in the closet in the bathroom. This combo not only washes as well as our side by side washer but it runs quietly. We were really suprised that this little kitten was really a tiger in disguise.. It cleans as well as our top of the line side-by-side pair, with no noise”

Kenmore 24 in. Laundry Center with Gas Dryer

“I purchased this product knowing it was small, but with features of larger units. I received it in excellent condition and the first thing I noticed is, it comes with the gas attachment hose, it’s 1/2 npt/flare adapter. So don’t buy the accessory hose. All in all the ability to do laundry in the small home I have is a major plus, and the gas dryer really does dry the clothes…!!! I also didn’t find the Dryer Buzzer to be that loud or long, a short buzz letting me know it’s done. I’m very satisified with my unit, it’s pretty quiet while running and does a pretty good size load.”

Roper Washing Machine

Roper Washing Machine Reviews and Washers Dryers Compared

Roper Washing Machine

Roper washing machines are renowened as being a cheap brand but this in no way reflects on the reliability of these machines. As anyone who owns one of these will testify they are extremely hard wearing and reliable and clean clothes just as well as products two or three times more expensive.

Roper Washers Dryers Reviews

Here are reviews from people who own these for you to read and help you decide on which brand to choose.

Roper Appliances

RAS8445KQ Top Load Washer

“We bought a Roper washer and dryer 4 years ago. We were shopping around looking at combos over 1000 dollars but decided to go cheap and simple since experience has taught us that more moving parts and electronics means more trouble unless you are willing to pay more than a lot. We have 5 kids and the Roper has mostly been doing 1 to 2 loads a day for 4 years without giving us any problems whatsoever. This is incredible for a cheap machine like this. It washes great also. The only problem we have seen is that it seems to get out of balance a little too easy with heavy loads that won’t distribute evenly during the cycle. This is minor though and a problem we have had with far more expensive machines in the past. All in all,the Roper is a great piece of washing machinery at an incredible price. With the load that we put on it it should already have been heading toward retirement, but it keeps going and going and going. What more can you wish for its the best washer and dryer on the market.”

Roper Washing Machine

RAS6233KQ Top Load Washer

“This is my second Roper product. The first lasted 10 years. Roper only makes direct drive machines so there is never a need to have a service man replace the belt. It is quiet with lots of options such as 3 water levels, 3 temperature levels and 3 different washing options with multiple cycles in each. My old roper was faster but my new one cleans better because of the multiple cycles in every washing option. I know this sounds like a lot, and it is especially for a super capacity machine under 300 dollars. I want to buy the matching driver but my old Roper dryer is still working fine.”

RAS6223J Washer

“Moved into a new apartment and I never owned a washer or dryer. Looked around and couldn’t find a real deal for the money. But low and behold Best Buy had a special on both a washer and dryer combo. I had shopped around for a real deal but they actually had one that was for real and so far I haven’t had any problems. The washer actually has a lot of features that you would see on a higher priced washer. Don’t let the Roper name fool you it’s actually made by Whirlpool. Features include 4 water temperatures, 5 water levels, 2 speeds and several fabric settings. I haven’t had any problems with the unit so far and it’s been doing a great job on my clothes. I would recommend this unit for anyone out to get the most value for his or her dollar. Happy washing.”

Roper RAB5232E Washer

“Many years ago I was a very poor girl now I’m a poor woman so my mother felt sorry for me and bought me a washing machine although I think she was really tired of hauling me to the laundry mat. I told her I didn’t care what brand she bought, as long as it would wash the clothes that never seemed to stop getting dirty in our house. When the delivery person pulled up and unloaded the Roper, I looked at my mother as if she might have lost her mind. My previous experience with no name brands was not great. But she assured me it was a spin-off of one of that greater name band companies and who was I to complain anyway. My concern actually was that she had perhaps paid too much money for something that wasn’t going to last me very long. I was so wrong. It has been seven years since I received the washer. It wasn’t failed me once. It handles large loads with ease, never leaving grime behind. It features different cycles, from delicate to regular wash and everything comes out looking great. We have moved many, many times and the washer has been banged up a bit but it just keeps going. The outside isn’t shiny white anymore but the whites do come out white! This washer, as old as it is for being a no name brand doesn’t show any signs of quitting any time soon. In fact, I recently had the chance to trade it for another washer and turned the offer down flat. This washer does its job exceptionally well. Why trade something in that isn’t broken? The best thing about this washer is that those of us who can’t afford high priced machines that cost 500, 600 and even 700 dollars CAN afford this one. Not only are you getting a great price but you are getting the best washing machines

Roper Washer

RAX4232KQ Top Load Washer

“My experiences with the Roper washing machine have been over a period of 5 years. The washer I have is an older comparable model to the Roper described above. I have done numerous loads of laundry in this time with this product, besides moving it 3 times, and I have NEVER had a day of trouble with this machine. At the time I was shopping for a washing machine, my brother advised me that Roper is made by Whirlpool, a very dependable [roduct all around, and also that it had the ratchet action agitator that was supposed to be superior in its cleaning abilities compared to the other models. At the time I paid 350 dollars for this machine. I must say it was well worth it. Since I have bought the machine I married and had 2 children. They are now 14 months and 2 years, and have a TON of stained clothes. I do on average 6 to 8 loads of laundry a week, and the Roper washer has stood the test.I must tell you that occasionally it will eat a sock or two children’s socks mostly and you must be careful of fragile items or clothing with appliques on them because this washer has a very aggressive agitator. But the cleaning quality is impressive. If you are looking for a modestly priced, dependable washer I HIGHLY recommend a Roper Appliance. My particular model has 4 water levels, 3 temperature controls, and 4 wash cycles. It also has a dispenser for bleach on the side of the drum which is quite nice. The only drawback with MY particular model that I can think of is that the drum is narrow and deep instead of wide and more shallow. That is the only thing that I would change about this washer. These few drawbacks in my opinion pale in comparison to the wonderful service I have received from my machine.”

Roper Washer Dryer

Dependable construction – no drives or pulleys in the motor transmission means worry-free operation! Extra large and super capacities – generous drum sizes handle your biggest loads, taking fewer loads to get the job done!

Samsung Washers and Dryers Reviews

“The helicopter is gone. Our previous washer was so noisy it sounded like a helicopter everytime it ran. Our first and formost requirement for our next washer is quiet. I read the reviews about the Samsung and quickly decided this was the washer for us. We could not be happier, my youngest daugter’s room, as well as ours is next to the laundry room. The laundry essentially sits in the center of our house. I can run a load of clothes in the morning or at night and it doesn’t wake anyone up,even on the spin cycle.”

“My wife and I decided to upgrade to a front loader when our water bills doubled. Man I am glad we waited for Samsung to come up with VRT and SilverCare Technology. The machines work flawlessly and our water bill has been cut in half. Also the drying time has went from 70min to 40min max.”

Samsung Washing Machine

“I did a lot of research on washers and dryers when we moved and had to replace our old ones. The Samsung washers and dryers models came out at the top of the heap in comparison to several other brands. Some of the complaints I found repeatedly in other front-loader washer models was the instability during spin cycles dancing washers, and the problem with mold around the door seal. Samsung touted the VRT Vibration Reduction Technology which is supposed to eliminate vibration. I have to say that it lives up to its claims. No dancing washer here. Also, I don’t have a problem with any mold or smelly growth on the door seal. I always leave the door slightly ajar between uses. When I’m able to afford it, and we’re in a bigger place, I will most likely invest in the platforms that go with the machines. They are rather low to the ground without. But that’s the only little drawback I’ve had. Overall, I couldn’t be more pleased with my machine. It has all the cycles I could ever need for any type of laundry, it’s quiet sometimes I have to go look at the control panel to see if it’s still running and it’s very water and energy efficient.”

” This Samsung High Efficiency washer has drastically cut down my laundry time per week. It works great and is very quiet. They are a sharp looking pair also I got the matching dryer. I have to admit that Samsung make the best washing machines.”

Lg Washer Dryer Reviews

WM0642H – “After shopping around at multiple stores, Home Depot was the best price for this LG washer. This is our first front load washer. We bought both washer and dryer in this set. It is fabulous! Very easy to install too. We spent our time on the floor watching the first load of laundry wash! We couldn’t believe how quiet the machine was. I can wash two heaping laundry baskets of clothes in this washer and they come out clean! Also, we experienced washing 11 pairs of jeans…what a trip! We are very happy with this purchase. The dials and buttons are easy to understand. Even during the spin cycle, the house didn’t shake. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this washer. One nice feature….if you are a shorter person and can’t reach a stackable unit…this is the way to go for you. The washer is a larger capacity than the stackable model. You don’t pay for the stackable feature, get more room, and look at the difference in the energy use. This model uses almost half as much as the stackable model. Go out and buy this washer/dryer set today! It is awesome!”

WM0642H – “I have been using this washer for over a year now. I love it! I love that it senses the size of the load and only uses the amount of water specifically for that load. No more wasted water! It is also great at extracting as much water as possible which makes it work even better with the matching dryer. It has also been nice to have a washer that can wash my King size comforter. Highly Satisfied!!!”

LG WM2233H – “We are very satisfied with our washer/dryer after almost a year.  It holds a ton of clothes, and gets them WAY cleaner than our old GE top loader.  The GE washer would even leak if filled near capacity!  The LG is WAY better.  Our water bill and gas bill have gone way down since we purchased this LG Model. The cry babys who were too lazy to read the directions (let the sealed drum dry out by leaving the door open for a while, and towel dry the seal) should have read the instructions … or maybe that too was too hard to do.  You know, most people only write bad reports (for revenge) and don’t take the time to write good things.  When folks take the time to do that?  It’s a really good statement.  Thanks LG.”

LG WM2233H – “After reading many positive reviews here and on other sites, we decided to buy a new LG front loader to replace our Maytag Neptune junker. We had lots of problems with the Maytag and I was a bit hesitant to get another front loader. But it appears that the engineers got this one right. We are very pleased with our new LG washer. It’s very easy to use, hardly need to read the manual, and the controls are well placed and intuitive. I too was worried about vibrations as we have our laundry room on the second floor. The instructions are very clear about taking extra time to level it properly. It actually was level from the factory, at least our floor was as well, and no adjustment was needed. We ran it up right away and there was no noticeable vibrations; it’s well balanced and quiet. And as others have said, the clothes are much drier at the end of the cycle than with older generation front loaders. We did buy the extended warrant only because of the issues we had with our other washer, and it was reasonably priced.”

LG WM3431 – “This washer-dryer combo is fantastic!!  I bought it about 2 months ago.  It is energy-efficient, so it doesn’t make the PSE&G bill go up.  Also, it doesn’t pump large amounts of water into and out of the machine, so it can be connected to a sink.  This is so convenient for us because we live in a very old building with older pipes.  
People have complained about a musty smell, the clothes not smelling clean, or the wash-dry cycles taking too long.  This is due to overloading the washer.  There is a “maximum capacity” line for dry clothes located when you open the washer door.  If you overload the washer, the clothes will not be laundered properly.  An average amount of clothes that can be washed at one time includes, for example, a pair of jeans, 2 t-shirts, 2 undershirts, and 3 pair of socks.  If a proper amount of laundry is put into the machine, typically a wash cycle will take about 40 minutes, and a dry cycle will take about 90 minutes.  It’s great for washing clothes 2-3 times per week, or doing small loads on the weekend.  It also dries the clothes automatically after washing if that is what you set it for.  So you can go out or go to work and come back to clean, dried clothes.  
My favorite thing about this machine is that it has LOTS of settings.  You can choose the water temperature, whether or not you want it to spin and at what speed, the drying temperature or if you want it to dry at all.  
I highly recommend this productas the best washer and dryer!!”

LG WM3431 – “I’ve used my LG WM3431 Ventless Washer/Dryer machine for 5 months now, and I love it! No more “sharing” the laundry machines with my building neighbors is worth the price itself. This little machine is great for a single person and really gets the laundry clean. Yes, the drying time is long (1.3 – 2.7 hrs depending on load capacity/spin cycle, etc.), but it’s not a problem for me. It’s very quiet to run; the spin cycle is the loudest thing about it, and it’s not loud at all. I use it at the same time as my dishwasher and it’s just wonderful. I have a small apartment and am not allowed a normal washer/dryer unit, so this fits the bill. My friends think it’s cool, and they bring their laundry over when we have Movie Night. My mom lives in a trailer and is thinking about buying one for herself; to save on electric and water. You have a choice to use this as a Portable unit (hook up to faucet and drain in sink), or to make it permanent. I chose to make it part of my kitchen appliances and I had it installed under a kitchen cabinet. The hardest thing was finding someone to hook it up, it is very tricky if you are not a plumber. Be careful to wash only 3-4 bath towels at a time to really get them clean and use the extra rinse; no more than 7 lbs of clothes at a time to make sure they get clean and rinsed thoroughly. And, drying time is shorter when you have 7 lbs or less. My delicates are so much happier now; they don’t get ripped now and they come out so clean and not wrinkled at all if I take them out right away and hang them up. That’s the trick to unwrinkled laundry with this LG machine; take the laundry out right away and “shake” the excess dampness out. Only takes a minute to do this, but works like a charm. Only suggestion is to add a Lint Filter so the lint does not gather in the front of the machine and ultimately on the laundry as you take it out of the machine.”

Wash Performance – The industry has a labelling scheme designed to offer a standardised method of choosing the best wash performance. This means how clean the machine gets the washing. The wash performance is graded A to G. A has the highest performance and G has the lowest performance.

Spin Drying Performance – The industry has a labelling scheme designed to offer a standardised method of choosing the best spin efficiency. This means how much water is removed during the spin cycle. The efficiency is graded A to G. A has the most water removal and G has the least.

Miele Washer Dryer Users Reviews

Miele Novotronic W1930 Top Load Washer - ”The Miele is programmable. You can have a fifth rinse, more water or less water, a more vigorous agitation, or less. You can set the machine to start such that the load will just get done as you arrive home. You can program it to run in the middle of the night, if you want. It is the quietest washing machine I have ever heard. It spins 1600 rmp, which is three times as fast as most washers. Clothes are almost dry before going into the dryer. Yet, the unit does not rock, or rattle, or bounce. It heats its own water, so you can select washing temperatures between 85 and 190 degrees. I have washed my queen-sized merino wool bed cover and my kelly green wool bathroom rugs — each for the first time since I have owned them (they used to go to the dry cleaner) – with complete success. I have removed paint from a pair of paints that had previously lasted 20 washes unchanged.”

Miele W1926A Front Load Washer - ”Frustrated with appliances that didn’t last, we decided to invest in a good machine. The Miele was supposed to be very durable and water efficient. To date, we have been very pleased with this washer. It took us a while to master it – you actually have to read the owner’s manual (more than once in my case!) I like the fact that it requires less soap than standard washing machines and that I have been able to program an extra rinse in the washing cycle (very helpful for those of us with sensitive skin). I have also noticed less pilling on our clothes since we started using it. We did have to have an electrician come in and set up a special plug for it (the Miele people seem very safety minded). And the front loading door means a lot of stooping. It might be difficult for someone with physical limitations without a stand of some kind. But it suits our needs well and, because of the energy efficiency, no sales tax in MD!”

Miele W 4800 Front Load Washer – “This Miele washer is a step down from the W4840. It doesnt have the MasterCare cycles. I bought it because I didnt need all the cycles the W4840 had to offer. It washes well and it holds alot of laundry in one load. The Honeycomb drum is gentle to clothes. The only thing that I have a gripe about is if you have pets and wash pet blankets it will leave the fur behind in the drum. The drum holes are much smaller than other washers on the market. When the fur problem occurs I just vacuum it out. Most loads I dont have a problem.
The other thing is that you have to use an HE detergent. I used to mix Tide HE and Tide w/ Bleach powder with my Maytag neptune and not have a sudsing problem. This washer if you mix you will get suds and alot of them. The washer then goes into a suds kill mode to get rid of them.
The washer also heats its own water using a 1000 watt heater. It will sense if heat is needed and will energize the element if its needed. This washer can be hooked up to cold water only if one had to. But doing that will add time to the cycle. All rinses are in cold water.
The washer also uses what Miele calls Hydromatic washing. When the load is wetted properly during the wash cycle it will vary the drum speed. Its hard to describe but it will tumble slowly doing a soak then rev up to powerwash the load then slow down again before it stops to reverse. Rinse cycles use a little bit more water and there are high speed spins between wash and first rinse and between 1st rinse and the 2nd final rinse. The spin speeds are dependant on the spin speed you select. Max is a nice 1300 rpms and thats only used in the last damp dry spin. If you choose the sensitive setting it will add another spin and rinse to make sure there is no detergent residue.
Also there is an LED light to light up the drum. Its nice and bright. Plus the detergent dispenser is easy to use…pull it out and you have 2 compartments for detergent…main wash and prewash plus a bleach dispenser which you can take out if you dont use bleach. The softener area is lidded in the front.
Overall this washer is flexible and simple to use. Very well made. Once you use a Miele washer you dont go back to using what US manufaturers have been selling. Not even the Korean machines like LG and Samsung come close. Or Fisher and Paykel for that matter.
Bottom line is that if you want a washer that works well, built well and one that will last not have to face replacing it after 5 years then this is the one for you.”

Miele W1215 Stainless steel Front Load Washer – “I hesitated to get a Miele washer/drier vertical combo because of the cost. But no other stacked units seemed quite right for our (relatively small) New York City apartment kitchen….and besides, my wife wanted the Miele. So I “caved in!” However, as soon as we began using it, I wondered why I hesitated so much. It is the best washer and dryer we have used, washing clothes cleaner than any other machine we ever had. It is also so quiet. It looks great. And it has lots of settings, and works with much less soap than your typical American top-loader. In short we are just delighted with it.
I especially recommend the machine to anyone who has to be concerned with the potential consequences of flooding(as in an apartment). The Miele comes with its own built-in safety pan and shut-off valve to catch any leaks. American models don’t have this, and paying a plumber to create one around the machine, while possible, is expensive and results in a clumsy look. If you live in an apartment that requires such safety devices, you’ll save money with the Miele.
While I recommend this machine heartily, I also recognize it may not be suitable for every family. Besides cost, a large family may want a larger capacity machine, and a faster one (the wash cycle takes longer than your typical American top-loader). In our family, we take real bulky items elsewhere.”

“very very good washing machine, my partner likes the style very much…… and it certainly isnt as loud as the last washing machine we had! very good and would recomend all others to use this product…… fantastic. Normally a washing machine in your kitchen does not look very nice and attractive but this one, this one is very stylish ”

“As much as it’s hard to say goodbye to an old beloved kitchen appliance that has served you well, there is a certain excitement in chosing a replacement. For me this was my washing machine. I decided it was time to ‘Go Green’ and searched for an energy efficient grade ‘A’ model as we all have to do our bit towards saving the enviroment. My search came to an end when I laid eyes on the Indesit Moon. My first thought was the price, surely a machine of such futuristic sleek design would have a whopping great price tag attatched, but No! I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw that this machine was priced at under £300. Needless to say I ordered one right away.As soon as it was plumbed in I was in awe of it’s beauty, one press of the on switch and my machine made a pleasant little digital noise and lit up with the most amazing blue LED lights.
I then moved onto the opening of the door where I discovered the detergent dispenser, three handy compartments complete with windows, the first for liquid detergent, second for powders and a third for fabric conditioner. The machine comes with it’s own handy little measuring cup which has a spout for making it easy to fill any of the compartments.
Selecting a wash cycle couldn’t be easier as it’s all done at the touch of a button. there are four basic buttons which are……
60 degree wash
40 degree wash
30 degree delicate wash
30 degree 30 minute quick wash
but there are also other washes available that require a combination of buttons to be pressed. This is all explained on the handy chart inside the door. The progress of a cycle is easy to check as the inner circle of lights light up as it washes. It really is an all singing all dancing piece of machinery. There are drawbacks to having an item of such beauty though, firstly there is no 90 degree wash. To be honest though this machine performs and cleans well enough that I havent missed my old boil wash. Secondly it has a built in rinse feature that means it will continue rinsing if it detects any detergent residue at the end of the cycle not a problem as such but can extend the wash time considerably, not good when on a tight schedule and desperately waiting for clothes to come out of the machine.
Thirdly and most importantly there is no spin only cycle on this machine a feature which may have put me off buying if I’d thought about it for long enough, Glad I didnt think long enough though as the Pro’s far outweigh the Con’s and the drawbacks I mention are all what give the machine it’s ‘Green’ rating.”

“I recently had to buy a new washing machine, my friend reccomended that i buy the indesit wixl 143. she had brought one and said that they were great. So off i went and brought one.
She was right its the best washing machine i have ever had. It cost £230.00 from a euronics shop.
It has a 1400 spin and can hold 6kg of clothing. It is really quiet, well i had to make sure that i had turned mine on because i could not hear it running.
It is so easy to use. Just turn the dial to the programe you want to use. wait a second or two for the 3 lights to flash then press the start button. The beauty with this machine is that you can use a delay wash if you wish. I go to bed around 10pm most nights so i use the 9 hour delay.there is a 2 hour 4 hour 6 hour and 9 hour delays. I set the delay at 10pm and It starts to do the washing at 7am Its just a fantastic washing macine with a lot of built in technology, but so simple to use. I would reccomend these appliances as the best washing machines  to anyone who as to buy a new machine.
There are 7 standard washes….
Programe 1 lasting 180 minutes
Programe 2 lasting 165 minutes
Programe 3 lasting 105 minutes
Programe 4and 5 lasting 60 minutes
Programe 6 lasting 50 minutes
Programe 7 lasting 45 minutes
4 time 4 you washes…are as follows
Programe 8 = heavy soiled cottons lasts 60 minutes
Programe 9 =slightly soiled cottons lasting 50 minutes
Programe10 =synthetics hevily soiled lasting 40 minutes
Programe 11 = synthetics slightly soiled lasting 30 minutes
1wash for sports shoes…
Programe 12 = sports shoes 2 pairs at one time lasting 50 minutes
Programe 13 = sports clothes lasting 60 minutes”

“An easy to use machine which we primarily bought because it was slightly smaller in size than the standard machines that are on the market at the moment. However saying this I have been impressed with the quality and the functions. There are many different pre-set washes that you can use and on each of these you are able to adjust the spin speed and also the temperature (within the max limits set on each programme) As you reduce the spin speed or temperature this reduces the time of the programme and this is automatically shown on the LED display. There is also a fantastic option of storing your most used setting in the “memo” setting which will remember what you have stored and you can use it just like any other pre-set wash. This can be changed as many times as you like by simply re-programming. Easy to do and a fantastic idea! ”

“We bought this washing machine four weeks ago so I have had enough dirty washing go through the programmes to give you some realistic feedback. Firstly the machine has good energy ratings which is now a seriously important feature to think about when you buy an electric appliance. We discovered that not all machines within this price rance give such high energy efficiency so this is definately a plus point. The machine has a simple, easy to read …
…and push button extra feature mechanism means that it is quick and easy to come to grips with initially and then to tailor the wash features to your specific needs. If you have arthritic hands or difficulty manipulating heavy or intricate knobs and buttons this machine is worth a look at because the dials turn easily and the you do not have to exert too much pressure to close the drum door.”

“I believe my hubby and I made a very good choice in buying Hotpoint WML520 as replacement to our 5 years old LG Washing Machine. I fell in love with its silver color which is so trendy and quite a big change from the usual white washing machines I’ve previously owned. The noise it creates while doing the job is just manageable and tolerable. I love the simplicity of this product. I really hate complicated machines but this one is not. It has no confusing details and the variations could be learned effortlessly. Indeed it is very simple and easy to use. This product really does serve its purpose of doing the laundry well and good. I am happy because it is worth the money I paid. Indeed, I am not only satisfied with its performance but also very proud and elated because my friends say my washing machine is classy! This is my most modish and elegant washing machine ever!”

“I have had my Hotpoint for over a year now and i am extremely happy with it. It has a short cycle for jobs that are not too dirty and just need a quick freshen up, and if you are in a hurry.
There are longer cycles that really gets to the heart of the cleaning. The digital buttons make it look really stylish and it’s really easy to use. It has a big drum and you can fit a lot into it.
I have used most of the programmes on it and can’t find nothing to complain about. I love this washing machine and definetley reccommend it to anyone who is looking for a great machine.
It’s got class and style and does everything well , except make the tea.”

“Yet another belt buckle in the drum of washing machine production from Hotpoint the AQGD169S is among the  best washing machines. With an impressive 8kg (17.6 lbs) load size this machine can cope with just about any household material you throw in it – and on that note Hotpoint took the liberty of installing a duvet cycle as well as a bed and bath cycle. Not only this but the AQGD169S also operates with a super silent wash (perfect if you do all your washing during the night like me) due to its inbuilt acoustic soundproofing. To make things even more enjoyable Hotpoint have spared no expense in producing an extremely ergonomic design, with 4 personalised memory buttons (making one button operation a reality). To add to its already modern look the AQGD169S even has an LCD control panel which includes a programme progress display. If this is not enough it also has a quick information button, eco-feedback and a Platinum woolmark. On a more washing orientated approach the AQGD169S has installed: a shirt cycle, a duvet cycle, a bed and bath cycle,variable temperature and spin, a fast wash option, a delicate wash program, an extra rinse option, mini load option and a super wash option. It is also designed to reduce creases. Hotpoint have also designed the AQGD169S with an extra large aperture – for easy loading and a child lock (in case you have any of those little people about the house) and there is even an in-built drum light so that you can see what you are putting into the drum easily. It also has up to a 24 hour delay timer – in case you want the machine to start once you have left for work, in the middle of the night or just when you get home – the possibilities are endless. The AQGD169S has many unseen features such as a 1600rpm spin speed for that extra rinse power. It also has an A efficiency rating in energy, washing and spin efficiency. The exact values behind these ratings are: an energy consumption of 1.27 kWh/wash; an energy consumption (kWh/year) of 254 kWh/year and a water consumption/wash of about 70 litres. All in all, this is an excellent piece of machinery and I would certainly recommend in to anyone who asked me.”

“People need to wash their clothes, now thats just a fact of life and unless you live near a fast running river and have the time and inclination to beat your clothes off a rock you are reading this because you wish for someone to impart some wisdom around the purchasing of a the Hoover OPH714D. I hope to cover the main points starting with the price tag. £260 for a washing machine is actually a little on the expensive side when looking in comparison at combo machines that will also dry your clothes but for my purposes I simply needed a washing machine thanks to the sturdy Servis dryer I have that seems to have a never say die attitude. So, yes, the machine may seem a little expensive but it is worth it because of the way in which it operates. The machine takes a 15.4lb wash load which is more than enough in my opinion. After sorting between whites and coloured garments I never seem to have enough to fill the drum up to the maximum. I would say that this machine would be slighly on the small side for a family of say 4, but for a couple it is satisfactory. One plus point of having just a reasonable load level is that from an energy consumption perspective the machines doesn’t ‘spin’ the meter into oblivion.
The wash performance is fantastic, and this is refelcted in the A grade it has for removing stubborn stains. The heaviest of grass stains are washed away with ease and manky shirt collars are a thing of the past in my household. With a range of programme settings that will wash devet covers to the finest and most delicate items the best thing for me is that when spinning wildly, in the throws of cleaning my smalls the machine is almost whisper silent. There are a few vibrations on the spin cycle but the annoying grumble and gearing up noises that usually come with washing machines is non-existent.
The Hoover OPH714D is a little on the pricey side but for your money you will get a top performing washing machine that won’t give you a headache. It has more options than a driving theory test and best of all, it lasts and lasts. In over 12 months I haven’t even had a blocked drainage pipe and for this I am eternally thankful.”

“The very smart looking white unit, which the very kind Argos man had just delivered, was something my wife had been waiting on for ages. What with car MOT and repairs and god knows what else the funds just simply were not available for a new washing machine, and other priorities were dealt with first. So when the funding became available you can imagine how relieved my wife was to finally have a washing machine again. The old one god bless it’s little old motor had served us very well and my wife had pondered seriously with the idea of getting one of the same manufacturer’s newer model. However it was an article in a magazine thatwas highlighting up and coming electronics company Haier that swayed both her and I towards one of their models. Haier are a Chinese company and I suppose the best comparison would be saying they were the Chinese equivalent of JVC or Philips. They make various electrical items, but mostly they concentrate on washers, fridges, and TV’s. Their huge reputation preceded them and being one of the most popular electronic retailers in China, they are currently making huge endeavours to break into other markets especially USA and Europe. They have just signed a massive deal with the American NBA in which they will receive a huge amount of advertising on their billboards and trackside advertising boards. After we ordered it I came across some reviews, which really put me off, but the purchase had been made and time would tell. To me it just looks like any other washing machine and is pretty much the same size as our old one. The one thing I have noticed is that it is really quiet, especially on the spin cycle………………I’m so used to the old one chugging away in the background that it had become a distant chug. The controls are man proof; well they have been up until now that is. Just turn the dial to one of the settings listed to the left of the control know they range from Prewash, Cotton, Synthetics, Wool, Cashmere, Silk, Quick Wash, Rinse, Spin, and Drain. Each has a green light above it, which lights up when selected. Beneath the control knob is the main Power On/Off button, which I do believe needs no introduction. Directly to its left are a series of 4 buttons Delay to delay a program for a selected period. Temp to select a temperature for a program………….NOT all programs can have their temperature changed. Spin this button changes the spin speed, but I never use it cause I just always have it on full spin, because I know no different. The last button in the list is the one nearest the Power button and is the start/Pause button, which again needs no introduction I hope. In order to use any of the buttons you need to know what the settings are, and here a small 2-inch wide by about 1-inch high digital display shows the required info for each button press. So the basis explained and tested it was time for the first wash and I was frankly expecting a disaster after reading some reviews. I guess this time I got lucky cause we’ve had it a while now and have had no problems apart from deciphering parts of the instructions on initial set up. Three bolts had to be removed and the instructions were to say the least a little vague. Even though there were three blatantly obvious bolts, they were not precisely where the instructions said so be deliberated a while and eventually took a gamble on the obvious ones and we were right. The machine cost £169 from Argos but is available in other stores like Comet and Currys. As I said I read some very negative reviews, but have myself had no problems, If the problems had been a serious as some other reviews indicated then I do believe that the three stores mentioned would have had to do something, and perhaps they did. All in all though I’m quite chuffed and I haven’t heard a word of complaint from she who truly understands such equipment. It also plays a nice little tune when finished, but I have noticed that the last minute of any cycle takes ages, so here I’m guessing this has all to do with the safety lock mechanism for the door. All in all though for the money it’s a pretty good machine, which does a mighty fine job on all fronts.”

“We were told in Currys that Haier are one of the leading manufacturers in Asia and that they produce high quality products.
The machine itself is great looking, looks ultra modern and the controls are easy to use. There are lots of settings and it beeps when the cycle has completed and tells you the time remaining on the cycle.
The drum seems quite small but you can still get a good load in.”
“I bought my machine of a auction site. I had never actually heard of Haier washing machines before, but had a lot of fun bidding for it. I had already been told that appliances bought of an auction site, would probably have a bit of damage to them. When the machine arrived I found one small dint in the side, which when it was in situ couldn’t be seen, so I was happy with it.
The appearance of the machine is good, it is silver and fits in with any decor. There is quite a large range of wash cycles including quick wash. There are variable spinning speeds, the top one being 1400.
The first wash I did I was extremely pleased with. I just used quick wash and the clothes came out clean and well spun. The next was I did was not a full load and when i got the clothes out they were absolutely dripping wet. I tried to spin them again and they still came out soaking. After a few attempts I found that the clothes will not spin properly unless there is a full load. This can be a good thing in some ways as you don’t tend to wash at a moments notice, but plan to do the washing when you have a full load of the same type of garments.
This will save electricity etc. so to my mind that is good.
I do not know if this would have been the machine I would have chosen if I had bought it in the convential way, but all in all for the money I paid I am quite pleased.”

Haier Washer Dryer Combo

haier front load washer dryer comboThe Haier Ventless Washer/Dryer Combo HWD1000 is the simple and compact laundry solution for small spaces with no venting capabilities, making it the perfect companion for small homes, apartments, cabins, RVs, and boats. Plus this versatile Energy Star rated machine both washes and dries clothing in a single stainless steel tub! Simply choose from 7 Fabric Care Wash Cycles and 4 Dry Setting, and clothing is automatically washed then dried, with moisture condensed and released into your drain rather than through a hot vent. The specially-designed Ultra-Quiet construction of the HWD1000 ensures whisper-soft operation, and the automatic dispensers for detergent, fabric softener, and bleach release each product into the machine at just the right time so you don’t have to.

“The machine does not use very much water but you can change the water setting depending on how dirty the clothes are.  I am not certain if it uses a lot of electricity as my electricity is included in my condo fees. It’s 115 so I imagine it does not.

I have noticed that if you are doing more than 2 loads of washing AND drying, by the third dry cycle, the machine shuts off about half way during the third dry cycle because I think it detects near overheat.  This may be something wrong with the machine or a safety feature–I am not sure but the machine does get very hot after that many cycles. That’s basically 6-7 hours of continuous operation so be careful.

It’s a great machine for 1-2 people. You can’t expect too much from it like washing 3 pairs of jeans and 2 towels. You have to pick and choose the types of things you wash with each load. It can wash/dry everything but you have to balance out thickness.

Overall, I got a good deal on it at an appliance site online. I paid approx. $600, shipping and tax inclusive.  It has made my life more convenient and while it takes time and has quirks, this is a LOT better than quarters and laundromat and I feel that Haier do make the best washer and dryer machines.”

“I  can’t say enough good things about this little machine!  My boyfriend and I live in a small, attic studio, and it fits in my bathroom with no problems.  It’s quiet enough that my boyfriend can take a nap while it’s running.  The spin cycle means some serious business!  I can wash a pair of heavy denim jeans in the afternoon, and they’ll be dry to wear by evening.
It tends to need some babysitting through the end of the cycle, and can be prone to unbalancing, but given it’s size, that’s not at all unexpected.  I have the water draining into my bath tub, and I strongly recommend using something on the end of the drain hose for lint, something a little beefier than those mesh things, as they let a bit of lint through, and will clog your plumbing.   I switched over to an old sweat sock, and problem solved.If you live in an apartment, I strongly recommend this washer.  I’m now saving at least $15 a week by not going to the laundromat.”

“It’s awesom. We don’t have a washer and dryer in the apartment. We bought this washing machine right before our baby was born. I love it. It cleans everything. Originally we bought it just to use for the baby’s clothes now I am using for everything, including jeans.Best part about it it dose not take room as it is very small. So if you don’t have space this is perfet. It’s easy to hook to the bathroom sink.”

“When we bought this little washer, we were living in an apartment and I was looking for something to launder cloth diapers.  We didn’t pay too much for this washer, and I half-expected to be disappointed.  I never have.  This machine is easy to store, easy to hook up, easy to use, and it works well.  Cloth diapers have to be cleaned well, and this little washer is perfect.  After 3 years, two more babies and 2 moves, this washer is still going.  Fantastic this is among the best washing machines for a small price!”

“I bought the above from an outstanding e-bay store and the unit was dented up like described. Looked like it was fork- lifted- dropped & rolled from about 30 feet in the air!! Dents I didn’t think were possible in impossible places.
But after examining closely, everything was still together inside, so hook up I went. Worked perfectly after such an apparent beating. I mean beating! Very simple hook up, only using the cold fill side on the machine, for my single lever faucet. The wheels were a little hard to put on but a wrench is supplied. Tight bolts. Unit has handles on side, opposite of each other and is very easy to move. Rolls great, even on carpet! I do recommend having someone with some mechanical ability around though… This machine is very quite even without bottom cover. Does an excellent job on wash, rinse, spin. It gives you 3 rinses on normal and heavy wash.The lint filters work well. Very flexible programming and operation. You can easily custom wash, rinse, spin any item it is that flexible. Easy to navigate for anyone. I am impressed.”

“If you are concidering the GE Front Load Washer…think no more. It is the one for you. Great and efficent wash machine. Gets a little loud in the spin cycle but hey it does spin at 1000 RPM’s. Uses less soap and really rinses it all out. Lots of great cyles for even your most delicate of clothes. Highly recommend and great price also. Sometime you will need to leave the door open so the drum can air out. Otherwise you will get a little bit of a mildew smell. Works great with liquid fabric softener. No stains…ever!!”

“My Ge Appliance Front load washer has so far (only 2 months old) SAVED me so much in water, electricity, time and energy. I love that I can have my clothes dried, folded and almost completly put away before my next load is ready to come out of the washer. The washer works so hard, yet it barley makes a sound, there is little to NO vibration from it while it’s adjatating or spinning out. My clothes have never been treated so well. I am in love with my new washer and it’s matching dryer.”

“I have had these machines for just over a year and they are fantastic. I had the LG front loaders with the steam and these wash way better, my whites have never been whiter and I haven’t met a stain I couldn’t get out.
We bought these because we moved into a new house and wanted a different colour then our red LG’s, so my husband gave them to his sister and we bout the black ones of this model. Wow! is all I can say, they are fantastic, our laundry room is upstairs right beside our masterbedroom on the second floor and you don’t hear anything, they are so quiet. There are tons of settings and everything comes out clean and fresh smelling (I could say that about my LG’s I always had a mildew smell that was on my towel’s). My 6 month old son’s cloths come out perfect all the stains from his food……
My only negative is that the cycles are long, but it is not that big of a deal, laundry has never been about speed its about getting your cloths clean and this machine does it the best.
Highly recommended as the best washing machines!”

“We purchased this washer when we bought our house. I had wanted a front loading washer for a while, tired of having to bend over and lift out wet clothes. The fact that it was energy efficient was also a plus.
The first thing we noticed is that it was quieter than models we had previously, with one exception. Our laundry room was on the second floor of our house and when the washer reached the spin cycle it shook the floor. I think this is pretty normal. Pedestals for the washer can be purchased seprately. However for the price tag, I would rather put up with the noise.
The washer allows you many different options – delicate, speed wash, and stain wash among them. Stain wash has a pre-soak cycle and takes a whopping 2 plus hours to complete. However, it does help with those particularly nasty bits of laundry. I was impressed by the fact that the machine automatically adjusts the amount of water it uses on the size of the load. This helps to conserve water and is easier on your utility bills.
Performance of the machine has been very good so far. The only problems that I have had is with some brands of fabric softner, the dispenser in the top left corner of the machine gets clogged. When this happens I just run some vinegar through the machine. (This is not recommended by the manufacturer, just a trick I learned from my Grandmother.)
Over all, it has been a great machine. It does the job well, is energy efficient, and conserves water. For your money, you might be able to do better but if you are environmentally minded it would be hard to beat.”

“Moving into a place that didn’t come with its own washer or dryer, a quick realization occurs that it is nearly impossible to rely upon coin operated machines at the Laundromat once you have become accustomed to having your own. The GE WBVH6240FWW Front Load Washer was purchased along with the GE DCVH515EF Electric Dryer, and was given as a moving in gift. The washer is probably the most impressive one I have used, and I was immediately impressed by everything that it had to offer. This GE Washer is of course a front loading appliance, which has a volume capacity of 3.7 cubic feet. In easier terms, that means it holds a lot of laundry, and in my experience that is a large laundry basket full of it. This means you can actually do a full load of colors without having to split it into two different loads. After you have loaded in the clothing, you close the front door, which will automatically lock once you have started up the machine.

Looking at the front panel of the washer, it becomes even more impressive, as you see all of the knobs, dials, and buttons you get to play with in deciding how to wash your clothes. There are 24 different washing presets on the machine, and that works with 4 different spin speeds, and 5 different temperature levels that you can set with the water. At the top front, you have a nice power button that activates all of the digital readouts, a start/pause button for the washing cycles, a lock button to lock the front door when not in use, and a start delay button if you want to delay the start of washing until a specific time. Below those buttons is the main knob that serves as a dial to decide what type of wash you want to put your clothes through. The different options include whites, colors/normal, stain wash, easy care, active wear, delicates, speed wash, and rinse/spin. When you select each of the modes with the dial, it also presets what soil level, spin speed and wash temperature will be on three read-outs on the right front of the washer. For example, if you choose whites as your washing selection, it presets to normal soil level, high spin speed, and hot water temperature.

Each of the washing modes has a different pre-set that comes up on the read-outs, and shows alongside the total washing time that the specific cycle will take. For whites at that setting, it takes 1 hour and 21 minutes. Each of the presets can be altered if for instance you want whites to be washed on cold, or if you want to change the soil level by hitting the rotating button underneath each of the read-out types. I think it is a really neat feature that allows you to set everything to your specific tastes when using the washing machine. This makes sure that if you want all your clothes washed in cold water that you can decide to set it at that. Having the extra rinse/spin cycle means that when the load is finished if you want to run it through one more additional time that it is just as easy as pushing one button. Every time you use the washer, you can also decide to take advantage of the Extra Rinse and Pre-wash buttons that can apply to your specific load. With everything being digital, it takes the guesswork out of using the washing machine, and gives you the huge benefit of knowing just how much time is left on the load. This means you can do other things around the house and come back at a specific time to put in the next load.

On the front top left of the machine, there is a little drawer that pulls out, where you put in the laundry detergent to wash your clothes. It works by adding water to what you have put in the compartment, and having it spray down into the clothes that are in the washer. I would recommend using liquid detergent if you have the option because it works best, and goes through the tubes easier than a solid detergent. Since it adds water to the compartment, some solid detergents might leave residue behind, but that isn’t too much of a problem since the next use will clean the pipes out all over again. Beside the detergent compartment, there are also places to put liquid bleach and fabric softener. Everything is made so easy that once you place your liquids in there, you close the compartment, press start on the modes you have set, and just walk away from the machine. Once your cycles have been set digitally, the machine gives about a 2 second delay, and then locks the front door to the washer. This makes it so that it won’t pop open from pressure on the other side or from someone trying to open it while it is full of water. If for some reason you need to get into the front of the washer while it is in use, you can press the pause button and then the lock button on the front, and you can then open it up with ease.

This washer has been very energy efficient, probably because it is Energy Star Compliant. The is means that it isn’t taking too much power to run, and I think that it has helped the electricity bill a lot more than an average machine would have. The washer is very quiet when it is running a cycle, and without the low hum in the background, you might never know it was even turned on. This is great, because it means you can run the washer when you go to bed at night, and it won’t matter how close you are sleeping to the laundry room. When a load is done there is a nice end-of-cycle signal that goes off which can be adjusted in volume to either not be heard, or turned up to a level that will allow you to even hear it outside. The tub is made of stainless steel, and the machine itself is white on the exterior, with a black strip at the top where the power controls are located. It comes with a one year parts and limited labor warranty, and will probably hold up to all of your best expectations for a washing machine. I can honestly say it is the best one that I have used, and you couple that with the low amount of water and electricity needed to operate it, and it makes me even happier when paying the monthly bills. That water amount is decided by a Load Sensitive System within the machine that determines how much water each of the loads is going to need. It is nice, because it takes all of the guess work out of washing your clothes. Another benefit along those lines, is that is has what is called a Hydro motion washing action that “offers a strong clean with a gentle motion that doesn’t damage clothes.”

The GE WBVH6240FWW Front Load Washer has been a genuine time-saver, money saver, and all around great washer every time that I have used it to wash clothes. It hasn’t had any problems since being purchased, it has never leaked water, and it has always presented extremely clean and nice smelling clothes every time it has been put into use. It has removed all the guess work that is involved with temperature of the water, water levels, or what type of settings you should use on the specific colors. With the digital readouts, you always know what is going on, which gives you and added confidence when using the washing machine. Though I am sure this is considered a more expensive option in the world of washing machines, I think it is well worth it for all of the benefits that come along with using a great GE washing machine. I highly recommend The GE WBVH6240FWW Front Load Washer, and suggest that if you are in the market for a new washing machine that you take a look at this model.”

“Large capacity.  Haven’t found anything it wouldn’t take care of.  Love the touch screen and stain category in particular.  Also appreciate the “my cycle” choices.  Paired with the profile dryer takes all the work out of laundry for me.”

“We purchased this machine about 3 months ago when our previous GE machine motor pooped out after 5 years of serious and steady usage. This washing machine is so quiet for the most part.  I had to go back and check and make sure it was actually running as it went through the wash cycle.  If you put your ear down to it you can hear it agitating.  When it gets ready to spin it sounds like a very quiet jet getting ready to take off.  It washes well and holds a good amount of clothes including my king size quilt without problems.  It does sound off balance each time I put in a full load of towels, but it recovers itself without needing my attention. All in all, a workhorse machine without bells and whistles.”

“I almost didn’t purchase this machine after reading some negative reviews about it on the net.. even though Consumer Reports gives it a Best Buy. I am so glad I didn’t listen to the negative reviews.
This is a great washer with a very large capacity. It is deceiving to look at because it is also small, but if It can fit in all my weeks worth of towels in one load and still have room, then I know it can hold alot. It spins the clothes really well. This has ment that my dryer works for way less time at least 10 – 15 mins per load! It also looks great what a bonus!
This washer is very quiet… and if you are having any problems at all with it I suugest you get it replaced.. I mean lemons come in all shapes and sizes…
Not sure where the “perfect Temp” complaint comes from. My washer does Hot/ Warm/ and Cold when called on. The clothes are defintely cleaner…”

“Hi! I am going to go over the specifications and description on this General Electric Washing Machine and put in my opinions here and there in parentheses.
3.2 cu. ft. Super Plus ExtrAction wash basket – Offers increased surface area to “squeeze” more water from clothes during the spin cycle, resulting in reduced dry times (Don’t be fooled by the Super Plus wording. 3.2 is a standard size washing machine. Anything less is below standard size. You can fit up to 9 pairs of adult jeans comfortably)
Has variable speeds to match the wash action to the clothing type. Longer, slower travel through the water improves cleaning performance and is gentler on your clothes (Nearly every model has this feature)
HydroWave wash system – Has variable speeds to match the wash action to the clothing type. Longer, slower travel through the water improves cleaning performance and is gentler on your clothes (Hydrowave wash system is simply a glorified term that General Electric specifically uses. Other brands will have a different wash system NAME)
Three wash/spin speed combinations – Alternate between high, medium and low speeds for better clothes care (Very typical feature)
16 wash cycles – Offer fabric-specific clothes care (16 wash cycles is pretty good. Sometimes there is as little as 10 wash cycles to choose from! You won’t get delicate cycle on this washing machine.)”

Admiral Washer AAV Range

admiral washing machineAdmiral AAV7000A Top Load Washer
This Admiral washer features a 3.3 cu. ft. Super Capacity tub to fit more laundry and get it finished fast. Includes Regular, Wrinkle-Free and Delicates cycles, plus variable wash and rinse temperatures and three water-temperature combinations. Built-in dispensers for bleach and fabric softeners make laundry day more convenient, and the 620-rpm spin speed removes more water in the spin cycle so your dryer has less work to do. The six-point suspension system keeps vibration to a minimum while the multi-action agitator powers away dirt and stains. The self-cleaning lint removal system keeps the polymer tub clean; powder-coated top and lid are durable to resist rust. Plus, since it’s built by Maytag Corporation and backed by a strong warranty, you know your Admiral washer will perform reliably for years.

“When my old washing machine was on its last legs we decided it was time to replace it but didn’t want to spend too much money since, at the time, we had been thinking of possibly selling the house in the not to distant future, well, before the real estate market collapsed ….
So, after reading an ad in the Miami Herald one Saturday, we saw what looked like it might be a great deal at Home Depot, they were offering instant rebates on all their washing machines and free delivery if the price was over $300.00.…we headed on over there to see what we could find.
While looking around I noticed most of the machines were in the $400 to $500 price range and was disappointed since we wanted to spend a bit less than that…I found a sales representative and told her what we were looking for so she led us over to an Admiral and told me that it actually was a Maytag..huh? I wondered…she then explained the parent company thing and that this machine sold for much lower cost than a Maytag and was manufactured with the same quality workmanship and reliability as these Maytags, just sold with the Admiral name…Besides that, this machine was on sale for $319.00, and was eligible for the $50 rebate plus a $25 store gift card and the free shipping and installation…that sounded pretty good to me.
I did tell her what my basic needs were and that I didn’t need a fancy machine just one that had large capacity, had a permanent press cycle and cleaned clothes thoroughly…Not to worry she assured me, this Admiral Top Loading Washing Machine had all that and more. It looked nice, plain white and that top loading feature was what I was looking for.
So we made the deal and within a week my new washing machine was delivered and set up…They even took my old washing machine away…some places don’t do that.
To get acquainted with my new Admiral I emptied my hamper into my laundry basket and brought it down to my garage.
There couldn’t be an easier machine to use…
As I said, this is not fancy machine with a lot of bells and whistles…but it is a heavy duty, super capacity plus model with 2 speeds.
There are just 3 controls
One; LOAD SIZE……………Mini, Med, Super and Reset…I’ve never used that reset
Two; WASH/RINSE TEMP…Hot/Cold…Warm/Cold…Cold/Cold
Three; FABRIC SETTINGS…Delicates…Wrinkle free…Regular
Some machines have quite a few more options, I know my old one did but, to tell you the truth, since I’ve been using this machine in the year and a half that I’ve had it, I never felt I needed any other options.
As with any washing machine the first thing to do is select a load size…The mini is perfect for my wash and wear clothes and delicates, when I have just one or two items to wash…the medium is just that, medium amount of laundry and best of all, the super really is super…I can wash a full hamper of laundry or, when I want to wash my duvet cover my shams and queen sized bed linens there is enough room for all those items. I also found there is enough room for two small blankets I use where my cats sleep, so each week I can keep the fur and dander under control in those little spots they like to hide in. The mini option is great for delicates or just one or two items.
Ok, so whatever it is you are washing is loaded in the machine…next step is water temp…for most laundry I use hot/cold…I’ve read that hot water sanitizes clothes better then cold so that’s what I choose to use e especially when washing unmentionables…for delicates or my Tropical print shirts, that I hate to iron, I usually use cold/cold so the colors stays nice and bright… or, I use warm/warm when it is . suggested for other permanent press items.
When choosing the fabric setting I usually use the wrinkle free option… I use regular for towels and blankets….so you can see I really don’t need any other fancy settings…besides it is just the two of us, old hubby and me and we don’t really have too much laundry, not like it was when we had kids living at home.
On the inside of the nice big tub is the large agitator and on top of the agitator is a container for your fabric softener..its one nice piece and nothing to separate to clean.
On one side of the top of the tub in the corner is a bleach dispenser, which I rarely use.

Now, one thing is different with this washing machine…they instruct you to add your detergent to the tub first, either liquid or powder…I like to use liquid. And, to use the correct amount recommended by the detergents manufacturer…a bit more or less depending on the soil factor. Then add the desired amount of fabric softener and your bleach to the dispenser should you use these products.
Add clothes, but do not wind them around the agitator especially sheets or other large items and try to mix the size of the items…wash blankets and other bulky items separately.
When laundering wrinkle free clothes never use less then medium water level, to minimize wrinkles and shrinking.
Close lid and pull the dial out to start after you select your type of fabric…easy as one, two, three.
If you need to add anything during the wash cycle you can open the lid to add it since the agitating cycle runs so smoothly, with no splashing, that you can put in that lost sock or whatever you might find lying on the floor…it takes about 20 minutes of wash time and about 30 for the entire cycles to run.
Strange thing, I guess I’m lucky since I read a few reviews here on epinions and, with the exception of one, each reviewer noted that the machine was shaky and noisy…one person said it sounded like a helicopter…well, I don’t know how their machines were installed or if they were on a level surface or not but my Admiral is not noisy in the least, I mean noisy to the point of being annoying…even the spin cycle is normal in the way it sounds and doesn’t shake very much at all.
I have found that,, without exception, my laundry comes out very clean, and if I follow directions with my wrinkle free items, I never have to use an iron.
hint: take clothes out washer and or dryer immediately before they have a chance to wrinkle or sit on one another, do not let them sit in the machine…if you do, then they will wrinkle.
The machine has a few other neat features too.
Automatic lint filtering system,
Unbalanced spin load compensator
Overload protector…
Sounds good to me.
It’s also very easy to keep clean just wipe down the inside tub and outside, around the dials, every once in a while.
All in all, this Admiral To Loading Washing Machine has been a part of my cleaning arsenal for about a year and a half now and thank goodness I’ve never had a problem with it… the Maytag, err, Admiral repairman is still resting on his laurels….
Thumbs up on this machine…3 1/2 stars!”

“Having purchased Kenmore appliances for years, I am used to receiving comprehensive owners manuals which actually give you usable information. The Admiral booklet is useless except for learning how to turn the washer on and off. This particular machine has an “end of cycle” buzzer loud enough to wake the dead and short of removing the back panel and cutting wires, there is no way to turn it off. A very poor design. A further problem, when you try to go on-line for tech info or support, Admiral is a poor stepchild of the Maytag line of products. Good luck getting any help easily!”

“As a mechanical engineer, I tend to scrutinize products more thoroughly than most.  I spent (wasted?) 5 hours on the web over 2 days looking at washers.  I was disgusted with the ridiculous range of comments about most products, from “drag it to the curb” to “the most fabulous machince I’ve ever bought.”  It didn’t matter what kind of machine it was or who built it.  So, I decided to write this with total objectivity in mind, in the hope that I might convey a sense of believability.  My prerequisites were; front loader, parts availability, a water heater inside the machine, reasonable price, under 800 bucks.  So, I went to my local appliance store (not a box store) and plunked down 750.00 (after 50.00 instant rebate) for the ATF800FE.  In addition it had two 50-dollar rebates which brought the price down to 650.00, not bad.  The vendor has a parts store right next to his retail outlet; I’m in.  The machine was delivered, set up and came with a free sample of Tide HE detergent.  I read the manual, threw some clothes in, poured the detergent in the proper recepticle and turned the machine on.  In a word: AWESOME.  It’s quiet, balanced, does a great job washing clothes.  Positioned in our mud room off the kitchen with the door closed, I cannot hear the machine running.  The machine sits on a tile floor; I sat a glass of wine on the top with it in the spin cycle and watched the fine vibrations of the liquid.  Three pairs of jeans with odd sizes and shapes of clothes and towels (hoping to induce an unbalanced load) and it was rock-steady.  One pair of jeans was covered with ground-in dirt from cutting wood; clean.  I can’t ask for anything more; I just hope it doesn’t break.  I wouldn’t have a clue as to how to fix this thing as opposed to taking the motor and transmission out of my previous conventional washer for diagnosis.  People that write in here and complain about this machine must be clueless or have knuckleheads for appliance people that don’t know how to set the machine up.  If you can’t throw some clothes in a washer, push a button and get the same results I did, you must be living in a parallel universe”

“I just had this washer & dryer installed. Because so many other washing machines have been reviewed as being very noisy, I wanted to say that this machine is barely audible at top spin speed with a full load. It is installed off my living area and I do not have to turn up the volume on the TV or stereo when the spin cycle is engaged. My previous front loader machine from Kenmore was so loud, I gave up trying to hear over it and often left the house during the spin cycle!
The small cabinet size, the variety of controls and the internal water heater were the reasons I selected this washer. The cleaning and quiet are the reasons I like it. The sanitary cycle takes nearly two hours, but it almost completely cleaned out the oil stains that my previous washer had gotten on my white towels and t-shirts.
I used Method HE unscented liquid and it works great in this machine which I feel is the best washer and dryer. I only wish I had more laundry to do right now!”

“I have had this washer for about 6 months now, and so far, no complaints. This washer replaced a Maytag Neptune that turned out to be a total disaster and waste of my money.(see my review for the Maytag Neptune 8700).
The washer’s tub is 3.1 cubic feet, which is more than adequate for my wash needs. The controls are mechanical, which suit me just fine after having experienced nothing but problems with electronic, digital controls in the past. There are three water temperature settings, an “extra-rinse” feature, and an “end-of-cycle” buzzer, which alerts you to when your load is finished. This is just a basic front-loader. No bells or whistles or other special features here(just more things that can break down). This machine simply does all you need it to do–wash clothes. It also features an automatic bleach, detergent, and fabric softener dispenser, which dispenses liquids at the proper time during the wash cycle. No more guesswork. Just fill the drawer and forget it–it’s that’s simple.
In retrospect, for now at least, I’m happy. I will NEVER purchase another Maytag product again, and I’ve had satisfactory performance from Frigidaire appliances in the past, so thought I would give this a try, and I’m pleased to report that it’s performed flawlessly–so far anyway. I guess if I have any complaints is that it can vibrate excessively during the spin cycle, but that is common with ALL front-loaders. There isn’t much that can be done about this since it’s the nature of the machine itself. The wash mode is EXTREMELY quiet, and I couldn’t even hear the motor running at all, just the sound of the clothes circulating in the drum! It comes with a one year warranty, and I purchased another 4 years(for a total warranty of 5 years)at an additional cost of $150, which I thought was a sound investment, given the way appliances are made today. So for now, I’m pleased. I’m sorry to hear that others aren’t as happy with this washer as I am, but as far as I’m concerned, anything, and I mean ANYTHING, beats the old piece of junk Maytag that this unit replaced. Try it and see for yourself. I will post an update within one year, or sooner if I should run into any problem(s).
PS: Just be sure to use an “HE” Detergent, as I found that regular detergents simply caused too many suds in this machine.”

“I don’t know what the previous reviews are talking about but this washer is excellent. It washes clothes very good and leaves them very very clean, much better than our previous top loader which was a Kenmore. This washer is also very quiet and best of all is energy efficient so it uses less water than regular washers, that’s a big plus. You can also buy the dryer and stack it up on top of the washer, that’s excellent for people that live in small apartments or people that want to save up space. I bought this washer about 4 months ago and I haven’t had any problems so far, in fact I love it. The only thing I don’t like I can’t fit my bed comforter, which is big, but it didn’t fit in our previous washer either, we have to take it to a laundry mat and use the biggest washer. Other than that I recommend this washer, please don’t pay attention to previous reviews they can’t even explain why they don’t like the washer in the first place while I’ve found its one off the best washing machines.”

“Kind of long, but worth the read…

After a few months of reading up on washers and dryers, I finally purchased this model from a west Houston Lowe’s and took delivery this past Saturday. (early Feb 2008) I had almost given up on front-loaders until Consumer Reports listed this as a ‘Best Buy’. This Frigidaire Gallery front-loader scored high in every category and was well-priced for all the bells and whistles it offers, so I took the plunge. Nearly $1100, a few phone calls and one service call later, I am finally satisfied that I made a good choice.

washer $760
pedestal $180
tax
and a delivery/install fee of $49 – (should be refunded as a rebate)

I bought some Cheer HE detergent and had it ready and waiting when my washer was delivered. After installing it, the tech ran a rinse cycle to check that the washer was working and then he left. I ran my first real washer load of clothing AFTER reading the instructions. I pulled up a chair and watched the whole cycle from start to finish. I was amazed… until the final spin slung out soap bubbles onto the inside of the door window. YUCK

When the washer is washing and rinsing, water pours onto the clothes but there is never a visible water level in the drum. Just soapy, dripping-wet clothes being tumbled around. I wasn’t sure if this was normal or not. I tried reducing the amount of detergent I used from line 2 (the recommended amount for a full load) to 1 1/2… to 1… to less than 1… I even added and extra rinse cycle to every wash (you can do that with this model and IT REMEMBERS!) Still I was singing ‘tiny bubbles…’.

I know these front-loaders use much less water, but that isn’t such a good thing if they can’t rinse the detergent out of my family’s clothes… right?

Over the next couple of days I read the Q&A on fridgidaires site When you call them you get a recording telling you to look for answers on their website – apparently spending $1000 still doesn’t get you a real person. I re-read the manual that came with the machine. I called Lowe’s appliance dept. several times and the toll-free line for Lowe’s service that they gave me. Although everyone was very polite, no one could tell me with certainty – if at all – what was normal for this model or what to do about it. Finally I was told to let a serviceman come out and check my washer.

The serviceman just left and I am feeling much better, albeit a little embarrassed. He ran some tests, ran a rinse and spin cycle without clothes added (still seeing soap bubbles in the water from detergent left behind!) checked that the washer was level (I had complained it sometimes vibrates a little with heavy items like towels) and in the end, told me that I was simply using too much detergent. Luckily, Frigidaire picked up the $80-something service fee since the machine was obviously still under warranty.

Wouldn’t it have been cheaper for them and less of a hassle for me if I could have just talked to a real person at Frigidaire for a few minutes?!

One other thing you should know is that these washers (apparently all front-loaders) stay wet inside and must be aired out to prevent mold problems. If you have small children this could be problematic for you – or at least a hassle to time it right for safety’s sake. When you are done with your last load, wipe down the inside of the door and the groove in the bellows (the grey rubber seal) with a rag or towel (I keep a stack on top of the washer), then leave the door open, open up the dispenser drawer and let them air out for several hours or overnight. The service tech also suggested running a bleach load (i.e. whites) once in a while.

Of note – the serviceman asked me if I got a video with my washer – I did not – just booklets. Maybe that was the problem.

This washer holds a lot, but not much more than my old extra-large capacity top loader. As far as I can tell from reading up on other models and brands, there are other front-loaders that can hold more.

I DO like the way front-loaders wash – they are much easier on the clothes and the environment. This machine seems to clean well and spins the clothes very dry, so I’ve cut my drying time in half – even on blue jeans and towels! no kidding – even the waist bands and thicker parts of the jeans come out of the dryer bone-dry!!!

The washer is easy to use. When you turn the dial – it comes to life and sets the water temp and everything for you – then you have the option to change settings to customize the cycle (i.e. spin speed, add an extra rinse). Just realize it will ‘remember’ what you changed and the next time you choose that same wash cycle (i.e. PermPress) it will set everything the way you did the last time.

I jotted down the cycles, auto settings, times and choices. Here goes…

Drain/Spin 13 min.
Rinse/Spin (cold/cold) 19 min.
Soak (cold/cold) 42 min.
Bulky (warm/cold) 42 min.
Wool (cold/cold) 28 min.
Sport (warm/cold) 33 min.
Silk (cold/cold/no spin/extra rinse) 28 min.
Heavy (Hot/cold/extra rinse) 55 min.
Normal (warm/warm) 44 min.
PermPress (warm/cold) 31 min.
Quick (warm/cold) 32 min.
Delicate (cold/cold) 30 min
Handwash (cold/cold) 28 min
TouchUp (cold/cold) 30 min.

You can delay start with this machine (up to 8 hrs? I think)

There is a soft beeping that alerts you to the end of the cycle. I’m not sure if it can be turned off but I think it can. I like this feature so I haven’t tried.

The spin speed apparently defaults to high (or the last one you chose) so check it and change it before starting if needed.

Some cycles offer a choice of ‘Normal’ or ‘Heavy’ Soil.

There is also a ‘Press Saver’ feature. I think this continues to tumble the clothes gently to prevent wrinkles. The machine does this for a couple of minutes anyway at the end of the final spin. The only thing I find that doesn’t come loose from the sides easily are towels.

Be sure to check all around the drum for any items that have stuck to the sides or gotten wedged between the side and a fin. Very small items can get caught in the groove of the rubber seal, so have a washing bag for delicates on hand if you are washing baby socks or something similar.

You can pause a cycle and open the door to add items, but depending on when in the process you pause it, it may take a couple of minutes for the door to unlock. It’s frustrating if you are in a hurry, but you just have to wait.

The dispenser drawer is easy to use, but it’s plastic, so handle it gently. I’m not sure it would hold up well to any abuse. I have a W/D space with folding doors. The dispenser is on the far left so it is hard to position the washer so that the folding door doesn’t interfere with opening it all the way. (this is not really a problem unless I want to use the bleach dispenser) If I shove the dryer over far enough to do this, then I can’t open the dryer door all the way. (still using my old dryer – not stacked with washer) Frigidaire should consider redesigning this model and moving the dispenser drawer to the other side of the washer – the same side as the door handle.

I haven’t had this washer very long, but with a family of five and a dog – I’ve already done several loads. I just used the fabric softener dispenser last night (Ultra Downy free & sensitive filled to just above the first mark in the drawer) and it worked very well. I also reduced the amount of detergent used in this load to just enough to cover the bottom of the cap (approx. 2 tsp.?). My clothes came out clean, soap-free and came out of the dryer nice and soft. YEA!!!

It is important that you use HE detergent in front loaders (made to be low-sudsing) – and for this model at least – much LESS than the bottle recommends.

Update 2/14/08:
I have since learned that regular detergent residue left in the clothes from my old detergent and top-loader might have been the source of some of the bubbles. Another poster commented that she had been told to run the first load of clothes without ANY detergent and still had soap bubbles after the final spin. As I wash more and more of our clothing in the new machine and wash out any old detergent residues, I might try adding a little bit more HE detergent to my loads and see what happens.

Update 6/4/08
It’s June and I am still glad I bought this machine. I have long since washed out the old detergent residues from our clothes and now I add a little more HE detergent – about a tablespoon or so – per load. Still, though, that’s a big savings! Even though HE soap costs more per ounce, I actually spend less $$ per load. I’m still using the original jug of Cheer HE – no kidding.

I have gotten brave about filling the drum full of clothes when I load it. (just make sure the door closes easily) I agree with another comment that it seems to wash better when its full. It does hold more than my old ex-large top-loader.

A Note about chlorine bleach:
The bleach dispenser in this model is fine for whites or very light off-whites (that are safe for bleach), but if you add anything that will show an uneven distribution of bleach, don’t wash it in this machine. I save my bleach loads for white and off-white sheets and towels, and add an extra rinse to the cycle.

Before you throw in the towel, throw in a towel. -
The first time I washed my rugs (alone) they came out dripping wet. I was so disappointed. If you are going to wash rubber-backed rugs or only a few small rugs, throw a towel or two in with them. Same goes for microfiber blankets that tend to float. They will wash and spin dry much better. This model won’t get up to full speed when spinning if it can’t balance the load.”

“I just purchased this unit 2 weeks ago from Best Buy for $449.00. I did research on the net on side loader, but I still do not trust them. The gasket will leak and they are much more expensive to repair.
I wanted a top loader that had a warm rinse. I cannot stand clothes that have detergent stuck on them. Nobody had a top loader with a warm rinse unless I went to the $800/1000
price range except Frigidaire. Then… Lowe’s said the could not order it because it was only offered on the West Coast? strange. I went by Best Buy and they of course could order it but it would take 3 weeks to get to the East Coast. The washer is fine, it is a little louder then my Amanda that only had 5 years, but leaked every 2.5 years. I would buy this unit again. It is not a e-star unit but at 365 kWh/year it should be. I purchased the 5 year warranty for only $129 which I think is a good deal.”

“Bought this washer on clearance in 2007 at an appliance store. It was the display model, and it had a few scratches and dents. Overall I have been mostly satisfied with this washer, It seems very durable, and when moving it into my place it weighed a lot less than I expected. It seems to wash normal loads of clothing fairly well. One problem I had was with large loads, the “basket” is made of lightweight plastic, Which is great if you want to move the washer around; but that exact thing happens when you run a large load the washer tends to shake across the floor and move around, I had to anchor it to the floor with a custom bracket.”

Stacked laundry centers  are available in both gas and electric models and also as top and front loading washing appliances

“I am usually not a big fan of stacker washers/dryers; they seem to lack the ability to clean clothes adequately and usually have the loading capacity of a soup bowl. When I moved to NC I had no other choice but to buy a stacker due to space, or lack thereof. I chose the GLEH1642DS from Frigidaire due to its larger capacity (versus other stacker style laundry centers) and its low price tag.

About Fridgidaire Washer Dryer Stacks

The Frigidaire GLEH1642DS is a front loading washer/dryer stacker-style electric (240-volt minimum) laundry center (apparently a gas version is available). The GLE1642DS measures nearly 6.5′ tall, 27″ wide and 2.5′ deep, making this laundry center thin and short enough to fit just about anywhere in your home. Though this unit won’t win any laundry holding contests, it does boast a large (for a stacker) 3.1 Cu ft. washer drum (yep, no agitator) and a 5.7 Cu ft dryer. The washing machine has 16 washing cycles, four temperature combos, two final spin speeds (normal and fast), and there is the option of an extra rinse cycle. The dryer features multiple cycles including, timed dry, towels, normal, air fluff, delicate, and damp dry.

Style:

If you’re looking for a dramatic or modern design with your washer, you may want to take a pass on the Frigidaire stacker. With its boxy sheet metal and white dress, this stacker is about as stylish as a mullet. The only physical feature that separates this stacker from the herd of laundry stackers on the market is it small porthole style front-loading door.

Installation:

I usually like to install my own appliances to save on money, but when it comes to mixing electricity and water I am willing to make an exception. It took the delivery guy over an hour to install, so I am guessing that you should take a couple of hours into consideration before installing by yourself, especially if it’s your first time setting up a washer or dryer. Since this unit comes with the washer & dryer attached and weighs about 300lbs total, you might also want to have someone help you install.

Ease of use:

Once this laundry center is installed, it’s a piece of cake to use. Unlike some of these new washers that have a zillion buttons and switches, Frigidaire has kept all of its switchgear simple. All the dial type gadgetry is logically placed (around 4.5 ft off the ground) and clearly labeled for easy use. The washer also includes an auto fabric softener dispenser, auto liquid bleach dispenser, and an auto detergent dispenser for more convenient operation.

frigidaire washing machinesWashing performance:

Washing performance is excellent, especially for a stacker. Unlike my old top loading Kenmore stacker, the front loading Frigidaire allows me to wash a full load of laundry at a time. I am even able to wash a queen size comforter, which would have been an impossible feat with my old Kenmore. Stacked laundry centers usually never impress me with their ability to clean clothes, however my Frigidaire always gets my clothes clean and never leaves soap or residue on the drum or on my clothes. Even when using the short wash or the delicate wash feature, my clothes come out cleaner than they would when using my Kenmore at normal operation. Since this is a drum style washer, it’s never too rough on my clothes. I can even wash silk items with absolutely no problems. Time to Wash: I would estimate that it takes about 30 minutes to wash a full load of laundry using the heavy wash cycle (add about 5 minutes when using the added rinse feature). Noise: Though I wouldn’t go as far to say that the washer is silent or vibration free, it is one of the smoothest washing machines that I have owned. It is certainly quiet enough to watch a television show in an adjacent room without interference.

Dryer Performance:

The dryer provides equally as impressive performance and at 5.7 cu ft. it also has a larger capacity than most stacked laundry centers. The dryer features multiple heat and length settings or you can use the manual self timer up to 80 minutes. I usually just leave everything on regular dry, which will adequately dry a full load of jeans or T-shirts in around 45-55 minutes. My clothes/linens consistently come out wrinkle and lint free. If a garment does come out a bit wrinkly, you can always toss it back in the dryer and use the press saver feature, which does a great job removing wrinkles without using heat. The filter in this dryer is located up front, so you do have to drag your clothes across the filter, but this isn’t a major gripe by any means. The only gripe that I have had with the dryer is its inconsistent noise levels. The dryer will sporadically get loud, then just as sporadically go back to being its smooth operating self. Note: A drying rack is included.

Price/ Warranty:

Most online stores feature this unit for around 900 dollars. I was able to pick it up from Sears for $849 before taxes. Since Sears and many other stores in my area carried less capable stacked laundry centers for the same price or more, I felt like the Frigidaire GLEH1642DS was a great deal. If anything goes haywire with your new stacker, Frigidaire gives it a full one year warranty (labor included) and a 5 year limited warranty on defective parts.

Efficiency:

According to Figidaire, this washer/dryer combo is Energy Star compliant. Since I have not had anything to compare this washer and dryer to since moving to North Carolina, I can’t vouch that it would have done any better than a non-Energy Star washer/dryer. However, I will say that my monthly energy bill only went up a few bucks after using this washer/dryer around twice every week.

Reliability:

I have owned this product for nearly one year now and have had no mechanical problems. As I have mentioned, the dryer does act up every now and then, but for now I am not really concerned that it’s a sign of a soon-to-be break-down. If anything does happen to it, I will be sure to update.

Final thoughts:

Overall, this has been a great washer/dryer stacker combo that cleans just as well as it dries. The Frigidaire front load stacked laundry center is reliable, efficient, well made, quiet, and is backed by a fair warranty. With that said, if you are on the market for a new stacked laundry center, I highly suggest checking out the Frigidaire GLEH1642DS.”

“i got this machine six weeks ago and so far i am very happy with it.

at first i didn’t take out the bolts in the back so it rocked around the house, but after i followed the instructions and took them out, it got much better.
however it still vibrates a lot during the final spin. other then that it is silent during the wash.

the dryer works well the only problem the buzz when it is finished is way to loud. and the lint flies around if you don’t take out the laundry promptly”

“I  never thought I would have the need for such a machine as this one that is a combination top load washer with a dryer stacked above it. As it is I did have a need as did the rest of my family on a one week vacation. We had an apartment type accommodation and in the bathroom was this stacked washer and dryer combination. We used it that week and we used it hard.

Some Basics

Specific specs of this machine can be found by clicking the View Details tab. The reason that it was in our place is because of limited space. This has a footprint of just 27″ X 31″ and a height of about 76″. The machine fit neatly into a confined area and though only taking smaller loads than our home machine, performed admirably under harsh conditions. My daughter who goes to school in Maine and where we were on vacation was going to leave us midweek and go to her school. She did but not before bringing all her summer and winter clothes and washing them during every free moment she had. During my college girls down time of using the washer and dryer my wife and my other daughter kept their clothes clean and fresh too. Yes, ol’ pops also did a couple of loads in the machines.

I like that the controls are all eye height and easy to use. The dryer settings were on the left. No big deal but I happen to like things set up in order. If I wash the clothes first, I would like the washer controls first, on the left. Like I said, No biggy really. The machine has convenient bleach and fabric softener compartments to fill prewash.

The washer has three load settings of Regular, Permanent Press and Knits/Delicate. The three water temperature controls gives options for particular materials being washed and soap used. They were activated by a simple turn of the knob.

The dryer also had a few settings. One was no heat at all for fluff tumbling. It also offered a timed heat cycle of up to 100 minutes and yet another with a cool down setting that dried with heat and then cooled down to help keep clothes wrinkle free. This worked pretty well but I had to use the Less Dry feature for best results.

More Of Pops Experience

As mentioned my gals kept this combo machine busy all week. That included everything, sheets, towels and clothes. I can’t forget our table cloth and much more too.

The machine easily took a pair of my denim jeans, three or four t-shirts, a couple of pairs of walking shorts and a bathing suit. The top load area between the washer top and the dryer left but about 17″ to lift clothes and offered little head room when reaching in and taking the clothes out. I highly recommend closing the dryer door when reaching into the washer. Problem though. I wanted to lift the wet clean clothes directly from the washer and put them in the dryer. I picked up a couple of bumps on my head for my efforts.

The machine was relatively quiet when in action. We were watching the Olympics each night before retiring. That’s when the wash was getting done too. The machines were quiet enough but, the washing machine easily went off balance. My daughter had to redistribute the weight of the clothes a couple-a-few times. I think it’s the machines limited capacity being put to the test that caused the off-balance problem.

I was happy enough with the outcome of my wash. All was clean including a tough spot or two on my shirts. (Somebody get this big dude a huge bib).

Most of my washing was on the regular cycle. My wife used the delicate cycle for some of her things. She was pleased with the way all came out.

The dryer was surprisingly quick in doing its job. A nifty little buzzer called me when it was done. I usually can’t hear buzzers and such, but this one I could. That’s especially good if far from the laundry room.

Last Thoughts

I liked the fact that this compact machine duo could clean and dry my clothes well. I was surprised at the capacity of the tubs and so much more fit in than I thought would/should. The one thing I didn’t like was the limited space between washer top and dryer. If I were to have to purchase such a machine I would strongly consider a front load washer with the stacked dryer.

I didn’t like that the machine had an off balance swing to it a few times. That said, it never went completely off balance to a point of stopping.

All in all my family was quite happy with the results this duo washer dryer gave us.”

AEG Washing Machine Lavamat Range

aeg washing machineLavamat range has machince capacities between 5kg to 8kg with spin speeds from 1000 to 1400rpm depending on model
Common Features
Fuzzy Logic – This machine’s intelligent fuzzy logic will detect when the laundry is out of balance and re-arrange it, to ensure minimum wear and tear to the drum bearings. The fuzzy logic also detects if too much detergent has been added and adds extra rinses if required.
Aqua Control – This model features all round water protection. The inlet hose can withstand water pressures many times greater than those found in a domestic mains water supply. If there is an internal leak a sensor, located in the base of the machine, activates the pump to clear water from the appliance. A safety level switch does the same if the water level within the machine exceeds a safe level.
The “Easy Iron” programme helps prevent creasing of the laundry.
Very low water and electricity consumption: 45 litres/wash, 1.02 kWh/wash.
Options on different models
Interior drum illumination.
Unique Stain Action programme.
30cm extra wide silver porthole with 165° opening for easy access to the drum.

“Build quality and the ingenious design are truly excellent. I am a Mechanical Engineer that used to work for Hotpoint, and after both my Hotpoint machines died far too early, I looked elsewhere.
I am really impressed with the Fuzzy Logic control system. The machine measures and adjusts most things on-the-fly (load balance, water pressures, amount of detergent, saturation of drier air, etc.) A very clever bit of Control Design.
Additionally, the build quality is truly first-rate. Much like German cars, the build quality and attention-to-detail far exceed that of their competition these guys really build the best washing machines.

I think that I will be a loyal AEG white goods buyer from now on.
The only thing that I can pick at is that the white finish on the different materials on the front are not the same colour — i.e., the plastic kick plinth at the bottom of the unit is a slightly (I am being picky here) different shade to the surrounding pre-coat metal panels. Excellent machine. No regrets.”

AEG -Electrolux Appliances

“The AEG-Electrolux 74810 Lavamat is a very durable and efficient machine which enables its user to select an option at a touch of a button. With its standard LED display the user would always know what stage their clothes are at and how long left. This A rated washine machine is not one to disappoint offering a wide selection of tasks and options, nobody would be dissapointed with its price tag of £349.
However, as a user of this machine myself i have expirenced what it has on offer. The only thing that can be criticised about this machine is its spinning. Frstly when spinning the machine creates a lot of noise and secondly you have to select the lowest spin options as it would leave your clothes very hard to iron. To avoid some of this I recommend that the spin option should be left on 700/500 rpm and not its max of 1400 rpm. I would strongly recommend this machine to anybody looking for effieciency and quality in their wash.”

This range also includes best washer and dryer combos with the following features.
Condenser drying system without venting  
Adjustable drying time   
Electronically controlled degree of dryness selector

Rinse hold option

“Having decided to part with my hard earned cash on both a washer dryer and separate dryer as well. I would now like to share my experiences and observations.
My choice of purchase was split between two manufacturers, namely Hotpoint or Zanussi. The reason behind this was that both manufacturers in the past have had quite a good reputation for reliability.Having viewed both manufacturers I had noticed that Hotpoint do seem to have a somewhat more cheaper quality feel to them and not as well built as they used to be.
Before going into the details of the product I must point out that there are some good deals to be had when purchasing multiple items. I had intended to purchase on-line, assuming this to always be the cheapest option. However, to my pleasant surprise, I found my local “Independent” electrical retailer was not only able to match internet prices, but was able to offer better deals for buying the two items at the same time. There are other advantages to this type of shopping, 1 it helps support local business and 2, I found delivery times were within 1-2 days rather than 10-14 days typically quoted on-line.

Machine specifics

Basically this is a front loading washing machine with 6Kg load capability and a whole host of various wash programmes and features.

To start with the wash performance. Lets face it at the end of the day this is what the machine is designed for. it can have all the flashing lights and bells imaginable, but if it doesn’t produce the goods, its a waste of money. The wash performance of this particular machine however is superb. Even when washing heavily soiled items including grease stains, the results are very clean indeed. To back this up the machine has been awarded the highest possible “A” rating for wash performance. The spin rating on the machine is rated as “B”. I must admit to being a little bit surprised at this as I have found the spin to be very good. This is particularly noticeable on cotton towels where virtually all the water is removed.
Another surprise is the machines energy rating. This is quoted as being “C” despite having a number of energy saving features built in. Having said that, the energy rating is given to the machine as a unit including the tumble dryer rather than just as a washing machine. For obvious reasons there can never be such a thing as an energy efficient tumble dryer unless it runs on solar power.
The machine itself is very flexible in regards to the demands placed upon it. There are a number of wash and rinse programmes to suit everything from white cottons to silks and hand wash woollens.Depending upon how easy your garments crease up, again the spin speed can also be varied to suit.in order to further cater for individual needs, there is also the ability vary the temperature, this is even more important as newer detergents are designed to operate with lower heat.

Drying feature
This machine is a washer / dryer combined. There are both advantages and disadvantages to this type of machine.

The main advantage is that subject to the load, you can wash and dry in one cycle. In other words you can put washing in last thing at night, and it will be ready to use (apart from the ironing) the next morning. Another advantage is that the dryer side of the machine is self condensing. With this type of system, there is no need for venting to get rid of the steam. The steam produced is cooled back into water and simply flushed down the waste pipe. Although condensing is available on dryers only, the purchase cost is significantly higher. The big disadvantage of this type of system is the drying capacity. Although

you can wash 6Kg, it is only possible to dry 3Kg (Hence my decision to purchase a separate dryer as well). The only other drawback is if your washer breaks down, you loose the dryer as well.

In terms of performance, the dryer I have found to be very good. The time taken to dry clothes is relatively short. Built into the dryer is a feature called sensor dry. This basically senses the amount of moisture and reduces the heat accordingly. Combined with the final cool tumble, this makes a significant reduction in the amount of ironing required. As stated one of the advantages of this system is the ability to wash and dry in one cycle. A big advantage offered by this machine to make this possible for overnight use, is how quiet it is when spinning. Although not totally silent, vibration even at maximum spin is kept to a bare minimum.
If you wanted to use this feature and wanted to get on with other things or even go out, a useful featured LCD display. The display panel will give an approximate time for the complete cycle to finish thereby giving you a guide as to when you need to return to the machine.

Would I Recommend?
YES!
To sum up; the end wash results are good, it is well built, it’s quiet, it does everything you need……what more could you want for??”
