Separate names with a comma.

I'd buy it. That'd be pretty cool.
There is and they are commonly used in Europe and other places where people have limited square footage.
Hmm you put the clothes in the washer, when it's done it automatically transfers to the dryer part and runs the cycle? That would be awesome!
Would probably not be too hard to do either. An alternative way is to just leave the clothes in the same drum but have it totally drain out and then dry, but if it has two seperate tubs then it would be better so you can throw another load while it's still drying. When it's done drying it would dump into a laundry basket in the front.
I'm calling Kenmore, Inquis, Whirlpool etc so I can give them my idea and get a 1% cut of all profits.
Whatever happened to the steam washer/dryer that was being lauded as a big thing a couple of years back? Its basically a closet where you hang your clothes. It was supposed to use a lot less water and have other benefits (wrinkle-free for instance).
That's a horrible idea. If 1 half breaks, you have to replace the whole thing.
if 1 half breaks, the other half is pretty useless, isn't it?
I think the convenience would far outweigh the potential downside. If your washer dies, your dryer is useless, and if your dryer dies, you're fucked.
Imagine being able to put a load of clothes in, and come back to them dry. No having to worry about transferring them to the dryer.
That would rock.
That's true with most things. Car, tv, dishwasher...
There's the top/bottom type. I have one of these and it's been great. A definite space saver. Probably not enough capacity for a big family.
And then there's the truly all in one type (see link in previous post). These are common in europe and big boats. They're very expensive.
Not at twice the cost. It's more like your car dies, and you replace the motorcycle too.
In England they had washers that had the final spin cycle from hell that got the clothes nearly dry.
No separate dryer, no separate washer. You put in clothes and detergent, and get out dry clean clothes.
That would absolutely freakin rock.
Unfortunately I don't think such a thing exists. If it does I would have expected to see it on some of the boats (megayachts) I work on. They always have the smallest most efficient things to do the job. They have no utility space at all on those boats.
I just throw the dirty clothes in the basket in the bathroom and they reappear in my closet...clean! :shocked:
Yeah, they have those and let me tell you, don't get one. When I was living as expat in SG, my company put me up in one of those condo at Orchards and they have those. It takes about an hour to wash, and another 3 to dry. Capacity is lacking, seriously lacking, and the machine would take forever to do anything. The funny thing was, there was space in the separate kitchen to put a washer, dryer AND a pool if they wanted to.
After the third time of doing that, I gave up and hang dry everything, the electric bill came up to be about $400/month. I think the 24/7 aircon might have something to do with that number...
My brother had one in a very small apartment he lived in. Quite nifty. It looks like a frontloading washing machine. You just put your clothes in, start it and a couple of hours later you have clean, dry clothes in the drum. Sweet.
from what was linked earlier:
Not really - I just googled the price on the model linked above. It is discontinued and sold for less than $1,600. The replacement model is sold for $1,300. That's less than my washer and dryer of the same type (Steam) from LG. I bought both for 2k at Sears.
I would consider worshiping the deity who could cause that to happen...
Every single day.
yes, they have them, and they never get your clothes dry.
that's not convenience right there.
My mom when I was in grammar school?
You know there was a time when you had to buy a car and a radio separately. Today they're integrated. Your car goes kaput, you get a new radio with your new car.
Hang dry? I do it all the time.
