"Very pleased with first ever washer dryer!"
Pros: Easy to use, Good build quality, Value for money, timer switch - wake up to clean dry washing!, sensor drying reduces drying time
Cons: can't seem to cancel a drying programme
"Was a bit dubious about buying a washer/dryer having heard negative things about them but I went for it and so far have been delighted with my purchase.
At first glance there are a lot of options which, if you are upgrading from an older machine with an on/off and start/stop button like I was, might seem a bit baffling! But, a swift read through the options in the manual and it all becomes clear.
It washes as well as any other machine, have to wait for one of my daughter's spaghetti covered tops before I can really comment on that. The drying is superb, once you realise that it uses steam and therefore, things feel slightly damp when they come out. But like the magic wipes on an aeroplane, they dry within seconds and require very little ironing seemingly regardless of which drying programme you use.
Another point worth noting; when I first selected a drying programme, I nearly fell over when it said three hours on the countdown timer. But, the dryer is sensor driven and will adjust the drying time as it's going. I went back expecting it to still have 2hrs to run and it said 5 minutes instead. Very useful little feature which I don't have on my bog standard tumble dryer.
My only gripe is that they have placed the start/stop button where you intuitively think the on/off button would be and I keep restarting a drying cycle which I can't seem to cancel. Very annoying to see the machine drying nothing.
All in all, what seems to be a great machine, looks great and does the job well. Would definitely recommend this to a friend."
