    Default Washing Machine and dryer in one?

    Just curious if they exist? Does anyone have one and are they good? Are they pricy?

    Our washing machine is great but it is nower days temperamental and just due for replacement. Our dryer is good but we bought it second hand and its way too big for us (6 kg).

    Would buying two separate units be better or buying an all in one?

    I have an older one of these. I've never used the dryer function as yet though. But yes they do exist :-)

    Personally I wouldnt buy a washer dryer in one... I have heard bad reviews about them and I like the flexibility of them being separate.

    We've got one. It's an LG. I really like it. Saves space too.

    We have one and its amazing. Its a 7kg washer and 3.5kg dryer. So we just wash a half load every day (probably not water efficient but it saves time and sanity) and then when its finished it justs gets switched to drying. Easy! It cost about $400 4 years ago but my friend worked at harvey norman and gave it to us at nearly cost price.

    I have one of the LG ones and to be honest I have used the dryer 4 times in 3 years. It takes forever so I bought a Miele stand alone dryer, does it in 1/4 of the time and uses less power

    Oh awesome glad to hear they exist, I was sure someone mentioned one but thought I was crazy. I might have to do some research. We could do with the space saver at the moment too but I am hoping we move at the end of the year and if we do move the house we would go to have plenty of room for two units.

    I've got a LG one. 8.5 kg wash, 4.5 kg dryer. We have a huge laundry so space isn't an issue but I wouldn't change now. It's really convenient.

    My sister had one when she lived in England and said they take forever to go through a full wash then dry.

    That would bug me if it took a while. I might look up LG ones and see what they are like and if it says timeframes.
