So, this is my washing machine/Dryer. Yes, it does both! can you believe it! So convenient.
SOOOOOOOO convenient. So Super convenient. It sure sounds convenient. How would it ever not be convenient? You simply put it in to wash and dry and you come home and it's also made your bed and baked a delicious casserole.
EXCEPT it DOESN'T work like that. See, a cycle takes between 3.5-4hrs. Once that cycle is done, you must now re-dry your clothes/sheets/towels whatever, because it doesn't get them dry the first time. No biggie...except it takes ANOTHER 2.5-3hrs to finish drying!
Also, something I never realized about how dryers work is that it's not just the drying that helps take the major wrinkles out of shirts/pants etc. The tumble drying is the key! Since this is a top-load, it rotates the clothes up against the sides. So they come out with super set in stone wrinkles.
So, lesson learned, when they try to tell you that the one washer/dryer deal is great, I would take a second (or third, or fourth) look at it before signing on the dotted line.
