    I love my Thin Twin Washer/Dryer Combo!

    By russell_preston

    Comments about Whirlpool Piggyback Gas Washer/Dryer Combo - White on White:

    The Whirlpool Thin Twin Combination Washer/Dryer has all of the options you need and it's super skinny so it fits in the tightest of spaces! :) It is quick, thorough, and has options to cover any type of garment you need washing. If you have particularly mucky clothes or harsh stains, you have pre-soak options as well as a program for heavy stains. The machine is constantly in use at my home - at least every other day. From all of the online reviews I have read, it seems that this machine can last at least 15 - 20 years, which is excellent for any washer/dryer, particularly at this very competitive (relative to other compact models with similar dimensions) price point. It has been in my home for over 8 years already without one hitch. In fact, we had them in all six of the units in my building over 8 years ago and we're yet to have a single issue with any of them so that gives you a sense of their reliability!! :D As for how thoroughly they wash and dry; The lint/particle catcher on the centre paddle of the washer always catches stray fibres, pet hair and orphaned bobbles from clothes so a quick check every few washes (which takes all of about 3 seconds) keeps things clean and reassures me that the washing phase really is catching a lot of stuff I don't want stuck to my cleaned clothes! Then there's the dryer - and there is a vertical tray Inside the drier, on the backside wall. It is very easy to remove and clean - takes about 10 seconds. I do this every few cycles and find a LOT of lint/pet hair in there, which is again reassuring because it means that it's not sticking to my clean clothes anymore! I have never had any garments ripped, shredded or in any way harmed by the paddle and type of motion utilised - even on the most aggressive wash settings. This said, I do always place delicately constructed pieces, knitted garments or thin fabrics inside a zippable mesh washing bag as a safety measure (but I'd do this with any washing machine). In summary, if you have a tight space or you simply don't want your washer/dryer to take up a huge footprint, go with this Thin Twin from Whirlpool - it's may not appear to be the most technologically advanced machine in the world when you gaze upon the control panel, but it offers all of the control you'll ever need (apart from a timer/delay for when to start the wash/dry). All of the fancy-looking options you get on these digital bunnies are smoke and mirrors for precisely the same wash that you get here for a fraction of the price. Thank you, Whirlpool, for making this amazing, slender beast. I'm definitely going to go with another Whirlpool washer/dryer when this one finally retires (if I outlive it!)

    This machine is relatively quiet and the cycle alert sound isn't jarring

    By Ingela

    from Palm Springs, CA, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool Piggyback Gas Washer/Dryer Combo - White on White:

    Love this combination washer & Dryer so much that I have 2 of them. I have two condos one as rental the other I live in. I nought my first Whirlpool Combination 10 years ago, and it still runs line brand new! When I purchased my second condo last September, 4 month's ago, I did not eve consider another washer/dryer, I bought my second Whirlpool Combination and my renters love the washer & dryer as well! Great product perfect size for smaller spaces. Thank you Whirlpool!

    Whirlpool Stackable Washer/Dryer

    By Condo King

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Whirlpool Piggyback Gas Washer/Dryer Combo - White on White:

    I bought this unit about a month ago. It was identical to one I had in a condo since the day I bought it about 4 years ago. No telling how log it had been in operation because the complex was built in 1976. It could very well have been there since then. It is a vacation rental unit, so gets abused pretty much on a daily basis. It replaced the old one which only needed a new belt for the dryer. I decided to get an identical one as it needed gas (propane) and a 110v power supply, and the Thin Twin fit the bill. My mother worked for Whirlpool for decades so I was familiar with the trusted Whirlpool name. I went again with the reliability factor and have not been disappointed. I am putting a new belt on the old one and keeping it for a spare. I have tried other brands that have broken down within the first 3 months. Keep up the good work, and you have found a loyal customer. I have a full kitchen suite in another condo and they all work great. Thanks Whirlpool!

    Easy to use.

    Comments about Whirlpool Piggyback Gas Washer/Dryer Combo - White on White:

    The only problem I have is the dryer door clasp is very tight and hard to open. I like it because my old dryer had no variety of heat. Also, now I can wash smaller loads without filling up the washer with water.

    Great appliance

    By CindyJo

    from Pulaski, IA United States

    Comments about Whirlpool Piggyback Gas Washer/Dryer Combo - White on White:

    I have had my appliance a couple months now. Love it. I have saved money by using less gas, water. I also have smaller loads. It's just my husband and myself. I would suggest this for older couples with limited space where they live. Price is reasonable. Great warranty.
