    We have the Samsung washer dryer in one which is the 10kg washer and 6kg dryer. A quick wash is 51 mins it weights the clothes for drying so that time varies. I love it I usually put it on at night before going to bed then it is done in the morning I have 3 kids under 3 so find. It great as I wash everyday. Good luck with deciding

    We had the LG one, I can't recommend it at all. The dryer needed servicing within 6 months, and by 18 months was only working partially. The whole thing died after three years.

    The repairman told me they were not well regarded as machines can usually only do one thing well, and that it was a bit like buying a car-boat.

    We were told not to get one as if say you do 9kg of washing and then the dryer is 5kg capacity you would have to take washing out IYKWIM! I really wanted one, but the salesman told me not too if I already had a dryer!

    We just got our Samsung front loader 10 kilo 2 weeks ago and I'm in love with it can't rate it high enough though

    Just in reply to the top leader vs front loader, i recently switched to a front loader and while i think it cleans the clothes better (then my old toploader machine anyway). It also give DD easier access to putting things in it, pressing buttons etc. I now have to keep a closer eye on it - if i had not have checked this on the weekend, my camera may have got a bath... apparently that is where it is kept...

    Thanks so much everyone! The do sound expensive to fix. I am thinking maybe buying separate units is the way to go. But I'll take some time to read about them

    Are front loaders more water efficient then top loaders?

    I need to charge my battery but when I do I am going to look at some prices

    Yes that's a worry for me, DD puts everything in the dryer! I can imagine she would do the same with a front loader so I would have to check the washer before I use it.

    Not only the part where you put the clothes in either. I once found that DD had managed to fit 6 (yes 6!) pairs of knickers into the part where the soap goes!!

    Oh gosh! I can only imagine what DD would think if she found the soap compartment on one.

    With mine you can put a child lock on, not the door lock that auto. Child lock is so buttons and dials are disabled.

    Even if you switch the machine off at the wall the next time you turn it on the child lock is still on.

    Pretty handy with Mr. 4 on the prowl
