Now here's the real question...

When is someone going to bring a Washer/Dryer combo unit to the US market?  You know, so I can throw a load of dirty laundry in at 11pm when I go to bed, and I can wake up to dry clothes.

Still don't get why this hasn't taken off in the U.S. -- and this would be great for laundromats too!

I have always been super-unsatisfied with the combo Washer/Dryers when I have used them. I'd rather just have a washer and hang my things to dry. They seem to break more often, and the capacity is much smaller than for a single use machine. I think laundromats are exactly where you *wouldn't* want a combo washer-dryer - drying takes forever in a combo machine.

Well, I meant to bring one to market that actually works well, as opposed to one that doesn't.  =)

For me, having lived in an apartment complex on the 3rd floor with a shared laundry facility halfway across the complex, only having to take two trips instead of four would have been huge!

We are a family of 4. We have a washer, no dryer. We have been using a drying rack for the past 3 years. I have no complaints at all.
