Steam Frontload Washer and Dryers?

10 posts in this topic

Anyone else have and use them? I just bought a set this last weekend and have a ton to learn. So far very quiet, cool to look at and seem to clean very well.

The brand I purchased was LG.

Shack I don't have one, but the wife has been asking for one. Keep us updated on how it works for you.

My wife has the steam frontload maytag since this spring and loves it. She uses the quick clothing refresh on wrinkled clothes before she jumps in the shower and almost never uses an iron anymore. As far as stain removal property goes it's inconclusive so far.

Yep Borch, that is the neat feature my wife and I where looking for in steam.

They seem to look impressive though:

I have about 8 loads so far and used steam on all of them. I will say my under T's smell much fresher grin than with my old units.

I will report back on tough stains when I get one wink

Down side is the wash cycles are longer (because of efficiency and water conservation), but the plus side is the dryer dries quicker than my old one and my load capability is much larger now. So in the end it works out to be quicker.

The "man" thing with these machines (because of the high speed spinning) is to level them out to a T and make sure your floor can handle them if not on concrete wink . After getting mine level, I had to run loads and adjust while the cycle was on. Takes some time, but in the end they are very quite and do not shake.

They just installed 2 sets of these in the house I'm working on today,( not sure why a family of 4 needs 2 sets plus a compact set upstairs) first time I had seen the new steam washers. Hope the wife doen't find out about them. Look like nice units.

We have noticed our water bill went down quite a bit. That and the way those things spin, they are close to dry when you put them in the dryer.

Read the newest consumer reports for these. When I bought last year the Extra $ for the steam ones was no way near worth the cost.

I got a heck of a deal on front loaders at appliancesmart

Make sure you get the extended warranty on the Washer for sure. The sales lady told us that they have 10 times more repairs calls on the washers than the dryers. Which I can attest to as we have had 6 service calls since March and they have replaced every part in the washer. Cost would have been with labor over $2600 which is $1000 more than what we paid for it. They work well and cut your water and washing time in half but protect yourself, we could have been out $2,600 - I need to buy that sales lady a bottle of Crown!

    •  I use a Digger mount on my ATV and sled.  Its fast and easy.   I'm on the ice everyday testing and tweaking Nils blades. I rack the auger on every blade change and some days that could be 20 times so for the me the Digger is exactly what I need.  The clamp on the Digger makes fast work of securing the auger and removal.   The height of the Digger frees room on the rack for more gear.      Once in a while we'll take my buddies ATV out fishing.  Hes got no auger rack so we'll bungie the auger to the ATV rack. It works but it makes me appreciate the Digger rack all the more.   Any rack would be an improvement there.   In the past guys have posted their homemade racks and I hope they do so again.   
    • Currently have a couple empires. Most likely toss one of them in. If I go with a furnace I'll use a small plug in step down transformer 120v AC to 12DC. They are cheap as hell basically an oversized cellphone charger.
    •   You realize the only ones taking Calexit with any seriousness are conservatives. Which means conservatives are the ones falling for the Russian propaganda. Liberals say it sarcastically because conservatives think the country would be better off without the "coastal liberal elites" (even though California pays in $405 billion in federal taxes and receives only $344 billion in federal spending, meaning the rest of the country would be $61 billion poorer without California).
    •   As in the one that lets me use his cabin for Turkey and Deer hunting!
    • So Bear, please describe what your policy on those drugs now banned would be, in as much detail as you can.     I am really wondering what the alternative envisioned by the "stop the war on drugs" folks is.      
    •   Bear, I explained why we are stuck with the two party system.   If you don't like the two we have, you need to "pull a trump" and take over one of them.     Good Luck. 
    • Actually only one species of bumblebee so far.     I have no idea how one distinguishes the species of bumblebees.

    • I would suggest using non-oxy gas also!
    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
