Washer n Dryer-Recommendations?

Post by privigdiv » Tue, 27 Jul 2010 8:49 am

Hi,
We are planning to purchase LG washer and dryer-combo unit for our condo the model that we are looking into is WD1210RDSU which is around S$3000.
Any recommendations/thoughts or reviews on either this or any other models???

Thanks :D

Any of them are okay. I've owned two sets of Whirlpool stackables (front-loaders) over the past 20 years. Currently don't have either though. They were okay but all front loaders are susceptible to bearing failure due to the penchant to overload them. As long as you don't keep overloading them they will last forever! I've heard Thompson toploading tumblers are pretty good but they are too expensive for me for the small loads that they can handle.

Sounds like alot of money to me. I do not know about LG. How heavy can it take for both washer and dryer. Front or top load ?
We use Fisher and Paykel. 8.5 kg for the washer and 5 kg for the dryer. It only cost about half the LG 3 yrs ago when we purchase. We use wall mount for the dryer to save space. Not sure if it allowable to wall mount if you are renting.
No problem at all till now. Does not cost an arm and a leg.

Have you used a washer-dryer combo before? They do have a limitation in that you can't wash AND dry at the same time. If you use the dryer regularly, it may be worth purchasing 2 separate units that stack on top of each other.

Washer dryer combos always come in second when it comes to washing or drying. Much better off getting a stackable pair... cheaper, too.
