    Washer - Dryer Combo

    Hello everyone!

    I am currently looking to buy a washer/dryer combo, as cheap as possible... what should I look out for while shopping?

    Are there different types/whatever?

    Essential: no water vapour is to be released inside the house.

    I need some guidance

    Any replies would be appreciated, thank you

    I just bought the cheapest one from John Lewis 2 years ago, paid £349 then, it's now £299.

    It works fine.

    The only thing i'd want to change (if it's possible) is having a dryer that allows you to open the door whenever you want, bit annoying if I want to end the cycle prematurely I have to press the power button and wait 5 minutes for it to unlock!


    Decide on your budget, if you want a 5 year guarantee or standard 2 years, what colour you want, what load size (light, med, heavy), free standing/built in and then try and filter from there. Check major websites, argos, currys, ao.com, johnlewis etc.

    Water vapour shouldn't be an issue, as far as I know it drains out the exit drain pipe and doesn't have a one of those external hoods like the olden days!

    A lot of people will no doubt go ....ughhhhh... but I bought a Beko washer/dryer last year, WDA91440 W, it was 499.00 but I got it via a Co Op deal for 399.00. It has been perfect, there are no extra pipes etc for water disposal or tanks to empty when drying, the water from drying is disposed of via the same pipe the wash water is. Worth a look if the price is right, one note of caution for you is that it needs a bigger gap to fit it in than a normal wash only machine to allow for the heat distribution when drying.

    Even if it is a condensing (heatsink inside the machine) unit, it'll still give off some water vapour, it's impossible to diminish it altogether.

    Just open a window and you'll be fine.

    We have a zannusi washer / drier and don't get any condensation at all.

    That's amazing, I've never heard of an Indesit lasting so long. X)
