I purchased this washer in January at first the detergent holder held water but now it doesn't. People said the rubber smelled but if they read the directions it says that after use you should prop the door open, that's why they give you the hing to hold it open. I have no problem with this unit at all, I' very happy with it.

Had this unit for a while now. We originally bought it just for renting out our condo. We still live here though and use the washer and dryer combo with our newborn every day. We were skeptical at first because of some of the bad reviews but we thought it would be okay for a rental property. It works great! Can't believe some of these bad reviews. Especially for the price, this is a great buy! It's super quiet (compared to the conventional style we had in here) and is extremely efficient. I've never owned a front loading set before but I'm never going back. This unit is also very intuitive to use. The detergent drawer does get a little water built up in it but if you open it with normal force it doesn't "splash all over the place" like some have said. It also has a quick release button so if you wish you can easily empty it to avoid any "mold build up". If you're using it regularly this shouldn't happen anyway. The only reason I didn't give it a five star rating is because when drying on "casual" (perm press), even with a small load, it doesn't completely dry. I believe this is just because the pre-set for the casual setting has it set to low heat. When on "normal" it increases to very high heat and and will dry a full load in 30 minutes. So I just change the dry temp to medium for the casual setting and it dries just fine. So the only draw back is the pre-set settings are a little conservative on a unit that already uses very little energy; definitely worth the price tag. Enjoy.
I picked these up on Black Friday along with all my appliances, they look great and the price was great so i figured, why not? After my friend was done installing I tried it out, and as I read in other reviews, it shook violently! I went through the manual trying to figure out what my friend missed. The unit was level and surprisingly after removing thr 4 shipping bolts and spaces that my friend left in, it ran perfectly. I adjusted the balance just a tad and it runs great even on high spin. I no longer worry about the unit breaking through my wall.
I bought this washer and dryer set on Black Friday 2014 for a steal of a deal. My fiance and I had been looking on Craigslist for a washer and dryer but people were pricing old beat up top loaders for at least half the price we got this brand new front loader! I was skeptical from the start about this washer and dryer set due to all of the mixed (5 star and 1 star) reviews. Needless to say the set never had any of the issues I read about and has worked wonderfully for us. There has been zero water left in my detergent dispenser so I have not had any issues with water spilling out when opening the drawer. The machine is quiet and does not shake any more than any other front loader I had ever been around. Our clothes come out clean, and our towels come out fully dry in half the time it takes other driers. As far as the people complaining about a smell and mold grow that is simply because they don't know how to properly care for a front loading machine. Front loaders are simply more high maintenance than top loaders. We keep a dish towel next to our washer to soak up the water in the rubber ring after we our done with our loads and leave the door open until it is dry. This prevents any smell or mold production. Also make sure you are using detergent that has HE for high efficiency on it. This prevents the washer from getting a soapy/grimy film on the inside. It has been a great washer and dryer for the price!
We purchased this set on Cyber Monday with the stacking kit. Cleans well, is quiet and a great unit for our condo. I have had front loading machines for 20 years. I have a samsung unit that I paid three times the price of this unit. I think this one cleans just as well and it has all the settings you really need. I noticed some previous reviews that noted vibration issues. It is critical that front loading machines be installed correctly and leveled in all directions. I haven't used the soap dispenser as I prefer to use laundry pods. Also, I leave the washers door opened after using until the rubber ring is dry to prevent mildew (a previous issue with a whirlpool unit). Overall a great washer for the price!

This washer is very very quiet and has all of the options I need. My advice to anyone having problems with it is read the manual, don't overload it and don't use too much soap. Also keep the door open between uses. It's a really good washer if you follow the instructions in the manual.

I usually only buy top line machines. I just loved the height. My steam washer and dryer were too.tall stacked. It was difficult to grab the last few socks hanging out in the back of the dryer. I saw this set for a 3rd of the price i paid for my old washer and dryer. The reviews weren't great i just about canceled the purchase. It's a great buy for very nice machines. I would highly recommend!
This washer requires you to hit the power button prior to every cycle, even if you have clothes that just finished. It does not remember your previous settings, so if you forget to set them, I hope you like warm washes. Other reviewers are correct, the detergent drawer has water left over after the cycle is finished, although I haven't noticed it being enough to spill. Clothes can easily get underneath the door into the well between the drum and the door. When the washer starts, it sounds like it's broken as it spits a small amount of water into the drum over and over. I assume it's trying to determine the size of the load compared to the amount of water, but it sounds broken every time. I also experienced a high pitched whine at the start of wash cycles. During the actual washing, it's pretty quiet, but not any more or less than other washers. The hose connectors on the back are plastic and difficult to attach hoses to. The plastic is soft, and looks like the threads will strip very easily. When I ran a normal cycle on cold, the tub was warm when the cycle was over. I'm trying the "Cold Clean" setting now to see if there's any way to not use warm water during a cycle. All in all, I feel like I bought an entry level washer for mid level prices. I would recommend buying another brand.
After 1 day of use, we are extremely disappointed about this washer/dryer combo. In particular, the washer is very bad. 1. The motor is too powerful for this unit. Even on low spin, it shakes the whole house (and it put holes in my wall). 2. The accumulation of water in the soap/bleach/fabric softner after each wash is a terrible design flaw. You will definitely spill water every time you open it. 3. The control panel is a little misleading. It appears that there are many options, but when you try them, there are only a few that you will actually use. And normally, we check reviews before we purchase anything! I couldn't recommend this unit to anybody, especially all the patch work I have to do to my walls...
