Advantages: Range of washing and drying options, relatively quiet, big drum
Disadvantages: Drying can be a little slow, sensor technology isn't brilliant
This product is both a washer and a dryer. I paid £422 from appliances online just over a year ago, to replace my struggling washer dryer.
There is a variety of washing options but, like most people, I don't use most of them. There are the usual ones you would expect and additional ones such as those for sports wear and one that is supposed to immitate dry cleaning. My boyfriend uses this to clean his dryclean only trousers from time to time and he has found no damage to the garment. The drum is also supposed to have smaller holes to prevent damage to clothes on any cycle.
I have found on occassion that liquitabs I had been using had not fully disolved leaving a sticky mess on a patch of the towel etc. This may be due to overloading the machine and so a fault on my part. I now use liquid rather than the liquitabs.
It is a nice big drum so lots can be fitted in which is more efficient though be aware that the capacity for washing is bigger than for drying by 2kg.
There is a delay option which is really useful if you want the wash to start in a few hours. The controls are easy to use and there is a timer telling you how long the cycle has left. I do find that the last minute of the cycle (i.e. when it is displaying 1 minute to go) can last for around 15 minutes so you do need to take it with a pinch of salt.
An average load can be dry in around 2-2 1/2 hours which was a little slow than I was expecting. There is a sensor on the machine that is supposed to stop when the clothes are dry, though I always find they need 30-60 mins longer than the sensor does.
The product has a good energy rating making it cheap and environmentally friendly to run.
The product is relatively quiet, in some stages you wouldn't really know it is on (great for people like us who have a relatively open plan apartment) but at some stages e.g. the spin it is certainly audible and I often need to turn the TV up a bit.
Summary: A decent machine that has served me well so far
