Combination Washer/Electric Dryer is rated 4.3362 out of 5 by 116.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from WHIRLPOOL THIN TWIN STACKING WASHER/DRYER This is the 4th thin twin stacking washer/dryer I have had in the last 23 years in my current condo. (The first and original washer/dryer was a GE, then I have had 3 Whirlpool Thin Twins.) This 4th one is especially noisy--the washer, that is--when the water is draining, then when it changes to the spin cycle, it makes a huge noise, then the spin cycle is especially noisy also. It is difficult to hear the television when the washer is going as my washer/dryer is located in the kitchen, only a few feet away from the living room where we watch television. I will probably contact the store from which I purchased it to inform them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mediocre at best I have had this product since 5/1/13. It fits very well into a cabinet that we constructed for it. The dryer needs to be run twice for an amount of 7-8 pieces of clothing. A technician has to come out already to also fix the rinse cycle part of the system as it hangs up on that cycle and must be manually adjusted or it will just keep running water. Based upon the reviews I read on line I thought that this product would be better built using quality parts...wrong. Would not recommend to anyone who needs to do large amounts of laundry. It's adequate for a single person doing a little at a time...assuming all the cycles are in working order and the heating element does it's job.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Useful life of about 3 years I had this unit for about 2.5 years before I began to have problems so let me start with the good: This unit did not hold much but it was a work horse, it washed my clothes nicely and the sensing dry cycle worked nicely. It did take quite a while to finish the dry cycle, but I assume that goes with the territory with electric dryers. Now on to the bad: One day during a normal wash cycle I heard this awful noise and the washer began to bang so I ran over and turns out the whole wash tub broke free from the base. I contacted Whirlpool and the referred me to one of their "Authorized Whirlpool Technicians". They came and $400 later they "fixed" the problem and I was assured that Whirlpool had upgraded the parts and that this "will never happen again". The washer was never the same, very loud. 9 months later...same problem. I refuse to pay another $400 to fix what seems to be a recurring issue. If you google LTE5243DQ6 you will find dozens of websites where people talk about the same problem with the wash tub breaking loose. How is this product still on the market? I am not sure yet if this problem extends to all the Whirlpool combo lines, but I would avoid this particular model at all costs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product meets my laundry needs. I am very satisfied with my combination washer/electric dryer. It makes my laundry work much easier. It cleans and dries my clothes very well. I am pleased with this product despite the fact that I had to have service for it shortly after I purchased it last Spring. It really is a good investment.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Would not buy this product again. After purchasing this item, the first month I had a problem with the dryer. Lowes sent a repairman because it was still covered under warranty. 1 month after warranty expired, had another problem this time with the washer. I called Lowes said that it was no longer under warranty and cost of repairman to look at it would be $100-120. I called my own repairman. It was the timer that was bad. Part was on backorder. It was out of service for almost 3 weeks. Spoke to Whirlpool corp. they said perhaps motor was put in wrong. $270. later unit is back in service. Hoping that I do not have any more problems with this unit for a while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only laundry that fits into my small space - couldn't ask for more of this pair! Our condo was built with very limited space for laundry facilities, and I replaced the original set after 20+ years of excellent service. I really like the quieter operation of the new set - it actually allows the tv to be heard over it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was the only washer/dryer that fit in the space we had and it turns out to be the perfect machines for our use. The machines are quiet, easy to use, and just the right size, not only fit, but also for size of loads. I have found only one slight problem. Because I am tall, I have some difficulty seeing the front of the washer tub, but that is only a minor problem. I've only had them a couple weeks, but have used them a lot and have found nothing I dislike about them. Clothes are very clean and perfectly dry with the automatic (energy saving) setting.
