Although I love the red washer for my dream home, this washer/dryer combo is more practical for my now home. The big selling point: does not need to be vented like a traditional dryer. Since my condo has a washer hookup but no dryer hookup this is perfect.
These machines are among the more affordable energy-efficient machines. They can use about 13 gal/wash (which is in the middle of the top-recommended machines) as well as getting about 4 stars for their energy efficiency (also in the middle of the top-recommended machines). The interface is extremely easy to use and the machine consumes about 1 1/2 tbspn of liquid detergent per wash. So, not only will you energy and water bill decrease, but you detergent budget as well.
This washer/dryer combo has been a workhorse in our apartment for 4 years. It needs periodic servicing, but continues to work great.
