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!

    • That little doe is a sweetheart. Reminds me why I gave up hunting. But I did it for more than six decades from MN to MT to AK and Canada. Before somebody jumps in with a snide  comment, I don't care if YOU do it but it is just not for me any more. Carry on. Nice pix....couple nice looking bucks.
    • I fish for monster bass too. But yeah, when one is the master of walleyes one tends to be an elitist... 
    • I agree; stay away from the extended warranty.  If my dealership (Village Chevrolet) won't honor the original warranty, what makes you think they will honor an extended warranty?  This problem was discovered well before my warranty ran out and they still treated me like an ugly sister...
    • Knock yourself out. IMO, pro basketball is a terrible sport.         -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------           Here's what they think of the Gophers in Iowa.....

    • You two must be elitist walleye guys. 
    • I can't say I'm much in agreement with Gary Johnson on this issue and I can admit it. I will say however that it makes more sense than the deal Pence struck with Carrier.   1. The carrier deal handed away state money while still being a net LOSS of jobs in that state. Johnson's program enticed new business into his state and resulted in a net GAIN of jobs and probably tourism dollars as well.  2. I think these types of deals should be handled as locally as possible. It's called representative government. Maybe it makes sense in the New Mexico deal that it be handled at the state level since it probably effects the state as a whole at least to some degree but I don't know. The Indiana deal should have been handled locally, especially if any of the tax cuts promised were property taxes. Those benefit communities at a more local level and the jobs saved benefit communities at a more local level. The state government possibly should not be handling these things but the Federal Government most assuredly should not be involved in these deals.  3. I'm pretty sure that the threat of interference with federal contracts had much more to do with the Carrier deal anyway so why did they give Carrier any tax breaks? I thought Trump was a tough guy and a strong armer? In the New Mexico deal, tax cuts are about the only leverage someone would have to bring that extra revenue and jobs into the state.   I'll say it again, I'm really not in favor of the government picking winners and losers. I do think the Pence deal is something that happens every day but the only difference is it happens at a local level and you don't have a blow hard President-elect taking credit for it normally. Time will tell whether it was a good deal or if the rest of the manufacturing community will hold the Government for ransom now like every professional sports franchise does these days.    Gary Johnson is in favor of replacing the current Tax code with a 'Fair Tax" system.
    • I think Purple means, our BullHeads!
    • I replaced my transducer on my  fl 18 with a proview  last winter very pleased with it. I thought my vexilar was going bad it was not picking up my hook anymore.  Replaced my transducer with a new proview worked great last spring crappie fishing. Replacing the transducer on my fl 12 with a proview this week.
