I was advised not to buy one by an electrical shop chap once. I'd told him I hadn't room for both, so it wasn't a sales pitch. I just have a washing machine and dry things on an aired or outside (if it ever stops raining) but then I don't do the 34678912 loads of washing a day many MNers claim to do.

No to a washer dryer. Personal experience. Never heard anything positive - sorry

SirChenjin Sun 10-Jan-16 15:32:55

Given that the alternative is going without a dishwasher, then hell yeah - buy it!

I have only had very poor experiences with a washer/dryer, you usually have to take out the washed clothes, put half back and it takes ages. It is not like having a tumble dryer.

I don't think you should make a snap decision on a washer/dryer because the man in the shop is pressuring you at all.

If you are used to a separate dryer then you'll think a washer dryer is terrible. Burning love mine.

Don't buy. Indesit is a shit brand. Washer-driers mean there's more to go wrong. Also, drying takes ages and means you can't do any more washing until you're done.

KissMyFatArse Sun 10-Jan-16 15:34:21

No to washer dryer. I'd rather do without dishwasher!

Whatsername24 Sun 10-Jan-16 15:34:27

No! Personal experience here - they're crap! I've had three due to space issues in the past and when this one finally dies I'm replacing it with a stand alone washer.

HPsauciness Sun 10-Jan-16 15:34:59

I would consider reorganizing the kitchen, possibly putting freezer elsewhere, getting a tabletop dishwasher, anything, but I wouldn't go without either the dishwasher or the tumble drier now, but we have a lot of washing and a lot of plates and both work long hours.

AgentProvocateur Sun 10-Jan-16 15:35:06

No, I had one once and it was crap. Would never get another one.

BernardsarenotalwaysSaints Sun 10-Jan-16 15:35:30

I wouldn't had a fancy all singing all dancing Miele one once. Thought it would be great given the brand. The dryer part was shite! Even if the drum was completely dry before putting washing back in it would still be damp after 2 hours on high heat. This was 7 years ago so they may be better now.

I have always had a washer dryer and just use it to get extra things dry, not everything, you do need somewhere else in the house or outside to dry the bulk of stuff. I wouldn't be without one and the last one I got 13 years ago is only just needing replacing now.

LibrariesGaveUsP0wer Sun 10-Jan-16 15:35:56

Don't get a washer dryer.

Get a decent washing machine and dry other ways.

AgentProvocateur Sun 10-Jan-16 15:36:18

And also, indeshit appliances are awful.

Yarpyarp Sun 10-Jan-16 15:37:24

dont get a washer dryer!

insancerre Sun 10-Jan-16 15:37:28

No! They are rubbish
You can't dry a full load
You can't wash if you are drying
It takes aaages to dry
The next wash you do after you've dried will be covered in fluff
Spend your money on a decent washer and air dry on an airer
But definitely get a dishwasher smile

HawkEyeTheNoo Sun 10-Jan-16 15:40:37

No! They are crap!! Don't do it op!

ginorwine Sun 10-Jan-16 15:47:07

Message received !
Oh thanks so much all !
Was like rabbit in headlites !!! I get overwhelmed in these sort of shops !!
Is a sieman dishwasher good ?
I'm starting to feel I'm being fleeced here !!!!!!😳

DelphiniumBlue Sun 10-Jan-16 15:48:00

Yes to washer dryer. I've had one for 25 years ( well not 1, but 3 during that time). We are a family of 5, and its used every day. Current one is AEG, works fine, now about 3 years old, think it was around 200 quid, i.e. not top end model.
I don't use it for all drying, but its essential to have a dryer available for crises!

CaptainCrunch Sun 10-Jan-16 15:51:52

Nay, nay and thrice nay. Total waste of money. And YY to Indesit being a pile of shite.

Can't comment on the dishwasher, only ever had Zanussi ones personally.

Supermanspants Sun 10-Jan-16 15:52:18

No no no no
Awful things

KnockMeDown Sun 10-Jan-16 15:52:27

I personally love my washer dryer, but it is an AEG, and I only tumble dry smalls, and hang evrything else out. Also, as PP have said, Indesit are crap.

My advice would be not to buy anything today, but just have a look at what you like the look of, and then come home and get a much better deal on line. Appliances Online are generally very good, nd can deliver next day.

inlectorecumbit Sun 10-Jan-16 15:55:53

No no no to washer drier, drier leaves the clothes in an un ironable--- ?made up word-- condition.
Yes yes to dishwasher tho smile
