    We had an LG washer/dryer. I hated it! Whenever we dried something it locked the doors and wouldn't unlock for about 3 hours afterwards. Thought it was a fault until the company told me it was a safety issue as the machine a d clothes would be hot. Took so long to dry as well.
    We have a washer and separate dryer now. Means I can have a load of washing on while something is drying.

    You just turn it off and it unlocks after about two minutes.

    Check whether there is a child lock switch. I press the start button for 3 seconds and it locks the machine.

    I'll second this. My LG took at least two hours to do a load of drying, and it had a lot of trouble with things like towels and mattress protectors. By the end of our time together I didn't bother putting those things in at all.

    My Miele takes about 30 minutes to do the same load.

    Pretty handy with Mr. 4 on the prowl
    We have this too!

    We have a washer/dryer, but bought a second dryer.

    The dryer in the machine takes aaaaages, if I do a was/dry load it can take anywhere from 75 mins to about 6 hours!

    We got my grandmothers combined washer/drier when she passed away, so not sure about price and I probably wouldn't have bought one, As I never used a drier previously. I don't use the drier all that much now, but having just been away for a week, I've smashed through the washing/drying so fast.

    If I have heaps to do, I'll interrupt the dry half way through, so when I hang the clothes out, they're almost dry.

    The most annoying thing, finding clothes that need to go in it, just after I've turned it on you can't just open the door and out them in like the top loader.

    Depends on the machine. Ours you can pause while its filling and open the door to add that one sock that always falls out of the basket.
