Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by naturalwoman2 Horrible Waste of Money
The dryer takes nearly 2 hours to dry 2 shirts. (I'm calling for service as soon as I can get a day at home.) The washer lid stays up and you have to press a release button each time to close it. So annoying.
I don't see any EnergyStar labels. The washer tub is so small that 1 pair of jeans and 1 tee is all that fits or 1 sheet. I needed the 24" width so the person buying this for me had no other options.
A waste of money because I'll have to sell this even if they get the dryer working and get something else.
The only use I can think of for this is if someone has an upstairs nursery and bath where you're washing SMALL baby clothes all the time.

I purchased the Whirlpool 24 inch Thin Twin a few weeks ago and I’ve run several dozen loads through it at this point. Here are my observations:
1. Great little machine. My wife’s a blacksmith and comes home fairly filthy on a daily basis. This machine gets her clothes clean, just like the bigger, more expensive models do.
2. The dryer works well. I’ve taken to setting it just on the low side of halfway on the auto-dry setting. My clothes come out dry but not cooked.
1. It has a small load capacity, but seriously, the small size is why I bought it. When my laundry basket is full, I used to run two loads in a standard size washer. With the Thin Twin I need to run three. Not a big deal for me. It fits a load of queen sized sheets just fine. I imagine it would do king sized too, but you might need to split the sheets into separate loads.
2. It’s a bit loud, but not really that bad. Simply louder than a standard size of similar design. Close the door on your washing area (if that’s an option for you) and you won’t be bothered.
3. The “dryer’s done” buzzer is very loud. However, it’s very easy to disable without any tools, and can be reenabled at any time. Basically, you just pull the wires from the buzzer (wrap the ends in electrical tape, safety first!).
I’d buy this unit again, but reading the reviews from other people I can expect at least 10 years from this one.
One more thing, the lint trap (in the back of the dryer) collects a lot of lint. I can see that if people don’t clean it out on a regular basis, the performance of the dryer can suffer. Perhaps that’s what some people are complaining about when they say the dryer doesn’t dry well. Due to the lint trap’s location, it might be hard for short people or children to reach (I’m 5’10” and can reach it easily).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kkshops This washer dryer is perfect for apartment living
This is actually my second until, it replaced a 10-year-old until that took a beating and kept on ticking far longer than I expected. I checked out the alternatives in a local appliance store chain and could find one reason not o stick with the Whirlpool. It fits into a really narrow closet, it does a great job, especially on towels and sheets, and the vibration is tolerable on lower floors. You do have to get the balancing right and make sure the legs are properly attached. I'm a happy camper and will be for the next decade.

This requires no bending or stooping to get clothes in or out. I am single so perfect for smaller loads but large enough to wash bedding.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by bbergs2802 Too small!
I have always purchased Whirlpool appliances and have been happy with them, but this washer/dryer stackable is too small to do an average size load of laundry. It doesn't do a good job washing, and takes at least two cycles to get clothes dried. Living in south Florida, I cannot take a chance that my laundry will get mildewed if not completely dried. The washer basket is already "shredding" - the plastic rim is peeling off, and the dryer has a brown "burn" stain on the aluminum plate in the dryer. I will have to purchase a new washer/dryer as soon as I can afford to.

My old unit was original to the house (1992) and parts were no longer available. When it started leaking rusty water, it was time to replace. I chose the Whirlpool based on its dimensions, but it turned out to be a great little set anyway. It is a bit noisier than my OLD one, but maybe it is working harder to get my laundry clean. I wash and dry most clothing on the delicate cycle and its great that the dryer will run until the clothes are actually dry, based on my choice of setting. I didn't have that choice on the old one and would often have to run it again 1-2 more times. I also appreciate that the surface of the washer when closed allows for more storage of items. I only have a very narrow utility closet. The installers knocked the round metal piece out of the side for the dryer vent hose to go through, otherwise I could not have closed the closet door (with it going through the back). It was very difficult to knock out. My old one had a plastic snap-out cover, which would have been preferable. Overall I am very pleased with this unit.

I had a Maytag stack washer and dryer for over 20 years and loved it. The new whirlpool fits in the place, but it is smaller, the size of washer tub and dryer. It does not hold as large a load. I liked the way the Maytag door open to the washer and the dryer(the dryer door is very hard to open and close). The new machine is not a tall as the old one, so you have to bend over further to put the clothes in and to get them out. It needs to be a couple of inches higher. It washes and dries great. I just know you can make another stack machine like my old one and when you do please let me know. I will be in line to buy one.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Debi Don't buy the extra's they try to sell you.. You don't need new dryer vent or dryer cord..
This is for a rental unit that I was not at.. Ordered on website and spoke with employee over the phone.. I was told i had to buy the dryer vent "even though I had a unit in there already".. also they sold me electric cord for the dryer.. Which I already had.. So their ppl are not very knowledgeable.. As I told them I have a unit there and was just replacing it..
