Clarify combo washer/dryer: single unit : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

Please forgive my previous wording. I think I wasn't clear about what I was seeking information on. I am looking at a unit (1 unit) that both washes and dries, not stacking units. It is only one appliance that does both functions. Many thanks to those of you who responded to my original question with advice about stackable units.

You could check with a local travel trailer or RV dealer to find out the name of a few companies. If a trailer or RV contains a unit,it is the two-in-one you seek. I just cannot recall a manufacturer's name.

I replied the way I did (and others might have as well), because I noticed some distinct disadvantages in a unit that both washes and dries. I guess I meant to say that if it were me in your situation, I would probably just own a washer and skip the dryer altogether.

Did not mean to be confusing! lol

Sue, I had a combo washer and dryer in my travel trailer. You can go to . I used mine for about 6 years and it was still running. The dryer is either in a condensing version (doesn't need venting) or a vented version. The condensing version does take way longer to dry your stuff, so if you can go with a vented version, I would recommend that. The whole thing is only about 24-26" deep ( from memory), so is very space saving. I had to wash for 4 and used it about 4 times a week.You would have to take quilts to a laundramatte, but I liked mine. There are other makes, but I can't remember them, Oh, I think Asko make one, just do a search on asko washers. Splendide, is Italian I think.

just wondering if you found your combo unit. they make several, i too have to explain that it is one unit that does both functions, many people have no idea this exists. my brother had one back in the 70's. he said they were heavy and leaked around the door then. probably better now. if you have bought one let me know how you like it as i want one for my horse trailer living quarters. also where you ended up getting it. i found a jhl wholsaler that has scratch and dent for 669. seems like a good deal.
