Questions & Answers

Are the washer and dryer delivered separately so that they can be carried up narrow stairs?

Asked by: JS
No. The unit is a one-piece unit. It was not designed to be disassembled. When they delivered my unit, it was carried up two flights of stairs. The deliverymen each wore a special shoulder harness that allowed them to carry the unit up narrow stairs. Using a hand truck would not have worked due to the tight turning radius of the stairs and the height of the unit. Well worth paying a couple of professionals to deliver it. The techs spent about an hour trying to get the vent to line up, without success. (These techs were not associated with Home Depot.) Be sure to read my review of this item before you buy one.

Is this set energy efficient?

Asked by: Holly
No this dryer is not energy efficient. It was never rated as an "Energy Star." In fact, with the design of this machine to comply with the new "energy savings" legal standards that all NEW washers have to meet, it is actually far more energy inefficient. The reason I say this is that while it uses less water than previous models, the only thing the designers changed was the programming of the machine. It is not improved. It just uses smaller amounts of water for the wash and rinse cycles. The law mandates that. The law does not say anything about the machine having to get your clothes clean. Since the machine only fills up 1/2 as much on the wash cycle (and tepid water at best-even on the hot cycle) and 1/4 or less on the rinse cycle, you will end up doing small loads to partially compensate for this. The end result is that you will do twice as many loads, your clothes will still not get as clean as they would with the OLD model of the same machine (and this machine was designed 30 or more years ago), and you will waste twice as much time dealing with this, and twice as much electricity to wash your clothes. Plus your clothes will feel like they were washed on a rock. Why? Because the rinse cycle of the machine fills the tub only up to the tops of the bottom vanes. Forget about your clothes ever touching the agitator (corkscrew) vanes. This ensures that lots of detergent is left in your clothes. But hey, it meets the legal requirements, and they still sell washing machines. You just lose in that you waste time, energy, money and still don't get your clothes clean. Do yourself a favor. Buy a USED thin twin made before circa 2002. They worked great. They still weren't Energy Stars, but they did get your clothes clean. Buy this machine and you will hate it.

where are the dryer lint screen for the model lte 5243dq

Asked by: mike
This was confusing for me, too, because it isn't in the manual. It is on the back wall on the right side. You will see two larger holes that are meant for fingers.

White Thin Twin Laundry Center with 1.5 cu. ft. Washer and 3.4 cu. ft. Electric Vented Dryer is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 240.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Know what You're buying folks!! I had no other choice but this "Thin Twin" for my condo washer/dryer space. It's small but I knew that going in. I can wash 5 medium towels at a time. Not too bad for a single person. What I really like is the fact that the water gets HOT and fills to the top above the clothes so I know they are getting wet and clean. Those new energy efficient junk washers don't let the water get hot enough or fill high enough. Sure, they may get clothes clean but not to my satifaction. This unit willl go off balance if you do not load it correctly. Simply open the lid, rearrange the clothing and presto, problem solved. Not that difficult. A "Large" wash cycle fills the tub to the top with a little over 10 gallons (I checked my water meter). So a wash cycle uses just over 20 gallons since it does shoot a little water out during spin time. ****For those that complain about drying time, STOP overloading the washer. A proper size load of shirts, socks and such takes about 40 mins to dry fully.****** I bought the extended warranty, mainly because I don't want to have to worry about it. Overall, it works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great washer/dryer combo 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: PROS: 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. CONS: 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!). OVERALL: 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 4 out of 5 by from Nice Unit Had it for about a month - works good so far - reasonably quiet, simple to operate - does not have an option to silence the end-of-cycle buzzer for the dryer - that would be a nice addition. Seems like a good value for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product great. Delivery annoying It's a washing machine/dryer. It's just like the old one that it is replacing - which is nice that it hasn't been digitized. Still turn dials and push buttons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great efficient washer/dryer for apartments Gets my clothes and linens clean. This washer/dryer combo fit perfectly in my 'tiny closet space'. It can't do my bulky blankets but washes my twin size blankets just fine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleaner Clothes! 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.
