Got this item delivered Saturday. Which was yesterday. Have done 5 loads since received it and so far so good. As of right now so glad I purchased this item. Even though it takes a bit longer then regular washer/dryer, it is worth the $$. It's doing what it's supposed to as of today. I will give another update in a week.
The "rubber" smell goes away after a few weeks, seems to be a newness thing. Required adjusting pattern of washing clothes but did well. However, it turns out that the heating/fan element did not have all of the screws, the service person could only find 1 that had fallen out -- meaning the other 3 evaporated or were never put in. The result was when it started any spin cycle the one screw that was there came out and the heating/fan unit was just flopping inside the housing. Water spraying out all over the floor and on the inside of the machine. The flopping ripped the rubber boot. I am sure they will eventually -- fix this but now I have a unit that even after the repair I will never trust because water was sprayed on electronics.This is a major failure in manufacturing quality. Frankly, I believe they should replace it, check that the "new" one has all the screws and salvage the working parts from this bad one. I give this one star, simply because I do not trust Sears to do the right thing and knowing that I will have worry because of this purchase until I replace it.
Love this machine. Yes, drying takes a little longer, but that's not a problem. I take out items that dry faster and have never had to use the whole drying cycle. We use this unvented and am amazed how well it works. I live in a tiny house and this is the perfect appliance. Also, it just plugs in ... no special electrical work is needed.
This is by far the worst thing that you can buy. The space savings are not worth the fact that the wash cycle is so terribly long, and they dry cycle is nearly useless. At a maximum, it can dry half of the washing capacity. And, as I have experienced, that may take up to seven hours.
The shortcomings here a too many to cover. Needless to say, if I had it to do over, I would not chose this product.
If you have pets this machine can be difficult. If you don't clean it several times a cycle it and your clothes smell like burned hair
Works very well and very convenient for space and multitasking.
