Splendide w/d Ventless... Gotta go!

I'm hoping I did enough research....I'm replacing my 2 year old ventless. w / d for a VENTED one.

I'm tired of the wash day battles....too many wrinkles. Nothing drys...without hanging in the shower for a day after garment removed from machine.

Wish me luck...

Hi Bryan
What are you expecting, Magic?
I have a vented version like you just purchased.
If you read the manual it talks about not over loading the washer and dryer.
It talks about the wash and dry cycle time is long than at home.
It talks about not waiting until the last day to do the wash but rater do smaller loads.
You don't mention where you are located but I bet it is high humidity area. Florida maybe?
My DW loves the washer but it takes a little learning how to use it.
Yes many things still come out damp and yes my DW hands them in the shower area to dry.
I usually turn on the ceiling fan in the bathroom area to get the air moving to help dry the clothes.




Good luck.

I have the vented model also. It is a 120 volt dryer, unlike a 240 volt residential dryer, so the clothes will take longer to dry. Some items such as towels still need to be hung up to finish drying. Overall, it works well. I prefer having my own washer/dryer rather than dealing with a laundromat.

I have a vented w/d unit (it's my 2nd unit- different MH). I always under dry just alittle because when totally dried, even very small loads wrinkle. And yes, I'm right there removing as soon as buzzer goes off. No problem for me hanging on shower structure till next morning. Then put away. Much better than pulling out ironing board or going to laundry mat. Today I washed two sets of shirts and shorts - what DH and I wore yesterday. Work done!

On our vented w/d we always dry on low heat. The clothes are more uniformly dry and do not have hot/cold spots and wet/dry spots as you get when using regular heat setting, which seems to be very hot.

So Bryan what have you noticed in performance with the vented version?
Does it wash or dry quicker?

I'm sure others will find it helpful.

We have an LG not vented bigger drum then the prestige ( a whole bed fit in it) take a little longer to dry but come out as dry as a residential. As for wrinkle, when finish drying it will turn the drum a couple of time every minutes or so to prevent them. The wife couldn't be happier.

The vented dryer .... Does not wrinkle the clothes. Time doesn't seemed to have changed

I can't explain the details....but I do like the outcome on vented version.
It was a lot of Money to buy new one. No body seems to want old. One.
