Great for single people or a couple. With kids, as you will learn quickly, you will be doing 3-4 loads a day. Much quicker with separate units.

Love my Whirlpool Duet. But, has had 4-service calls in the last 2-yrs. The latest a few weeks ago was the main bearing and associated parts, including stainless basket and tub. The service guy tells me the parts are on back order 'til 15Apr. The Whirlpool Customer Service says, 03May or a 20% buy back. I tell both unacceptable and I will need to talk with Whirlpool's President.:tank: The customer service agent laughs and she says go ahead! I get her name call my friend at Whirlpool, tell him the story, talk about competition and tell him pull the parts off the line or third party ship from the supplier! It's not like I bought the bargain washer, it's their top of the line! I had the back ordered parts "next day UPS" to my door and a follow-up apology phone call the next day from the VP of cstomer service and the service guy out the next day. Networking and understanding business operations is wonderful!:w00t:

Also, if you don't mind the mix-match, don't buy the Duet matching dryer. Buy the Ultimate Care Series. Higher capacity, more efficient, and 40% cheaper. It's their commercial line inners made for residential.

Also, Bosch makes the best in the industry right now.

I put non HE detergent in my washer a month or so ago and then did a large wash with warm water. HA! Suds lock, what a whore to get that drained out. I bought the Kenmore HE2 front load jobby... forgot for a moment that you have to use the HE stuff in those things, and I grabbed the old jub of deTURDgent.

I just wanted to say turd.

I should've been clearer. I didn't mean a small stackable, I meant one machine, full size capacity, load the clothes hit the button and an hour and a half later you have washed and dried clothes ready to fold. An all in one unit.

I know what you meant, Like this...

More on the matching washer and dryer thing. I did the non matching dryer and when they put it in, it didn't fit. So I ended up buying the matching dryer to fit. They are a rip off. Although now it looks pretty in a pair. :mad:

Oh that's so what I need. A little pricey though. Might have to consider the smallest of those. The extra price over getting one of the stacked sets would totally be justified by the extra freedom of location.

Well, speaking from experience... getting a decent matching set of front load washer and dryer will end up costing about that... maybe a little less I suppose, but think of the space saved. The only thing is what was said earlier about having many loads, you'd have to wait longer between getting them done.
