- Salt Lake City, UT
I am in need of a good washer/dryer that was built to go as a team. Not a combo where one is on top and the other on the bottom, but they were made to be used together, first the washer and then the dryer. I have purchased the Kenmore HE washer/dryer on pedestals when they first came out and I loved them. I went for the paid that were front loaders, not too many options, but just the right amount of options (water level, spinning speed (which was the best, you could hear it start off slow and gradually increase sped until it was going so fast the washer would lock and it had a whirling sound to it the washer sounded like it was going to take off. This was about 5-6 years ago. I had to sell them, but I am not in the market for another washer/dryer. I like the fact that certain models have a washer and dryer pair that were made to go together. I need an electric dryer. the largest items I would be washing/drying are queen sheets/and maybe an occasionally queen comforter. I use Oxy-Clean in nearly every wash, and I am very determined to maintain the washer/dryer as the manual states. I used to clean out this first HE pair I had, make sure no mildew grew, and occasionally put it through a cleaning cycle with no cloths, just water and a little bleach.
The latest model. I do not know who makes what models anymore, but I used to always go for Kenmore, but I hear a different company is making Kenmore now. I am disappointed that Sears does not service the units it sells anymore that it has another company service them, and the way they do it it takes twice as long to get the units diagnosed and fixed. I am a single man, so I do not need a super heavy duty washer/dryer, but I need the quality and not the bells & whistles, but the bells & whistles that are the basic options. I would like a Speed Queen but I do not think Sears sells this brand. Some options that are on sale and go together would be appreciated.
