OH THAT'S CHELSEY

GE Combo Washer/Dryer Review

We’ve had our GE Profile 4.8 Cu. Ft. Capacity UltraFast Combo with Ventless Heat Pump Technology Washer/Dryer (whew that’s a mouthful!) for a few months now and our review is a solid 5 stars!

If you want to cut to the chase, we love this machine and it’s literally been life changing.

If you’re here for a full review, read on!

While we were building we planned to have a laundry room on the main level with a laundry chute down from the upstairs bathroom. When searching for washing machines and dryers, I came across the GE combo in a home building group. We discussed putting it downstairs in the laundry room but wondered if it could handle big enough loads, extra dirty/greasy clothes, and if it really worked. Then one day, after framing was complete, Kyle suggested we see if we could fit the combo machine upstairs in the bathroom instead of the laundry chute! It was super easy to make the change since all the combo machine needs is a regular outlet and hot + cold water. This way we could have a traditional set of machines in the laundry room for the heavy lifting and the combo machine upstairs for daily use.

Since moving in, we’ve put the combo machine through the paces and it’s pulled through every time! 

The capacity size listed didn’t mean much to me so I was pleasantly surprised when our king size duvet fit along with our sheets in the same load.

For a wash and dry cycle, plus adding the more dry option, a load typically takes 2 hours and 48 minutes. I’ve never stood and watched the timer to see if it says 5 minutes left then proceeds to say that for 10 extra minutes. We usually run it during the day while we’re gone or as we sleep at night. For reference, the new washer and dryer set we have in the laundry room downstairs take 90 minutes each plus we have to do the transfer.

Our bathroom with the combo machine is adjacent to our bedroom. We can hear it while it fills and spins, but it’s not so obnoxiously loud we need to close the door or can’t sleep.

The way the ventless system works, the lint trap doesn’t need to be cleaned each load. It also, has an automatic detergent dispenser, which I used to question why it was necessary, but it’s so handy. Both of those features sound trivial, but have been so handy in making laundry as fast as possible.

We did buy the riser to lift it up off the floor more and I’m glad we did. Disappointed it’s only a riser and not a small drawer, but it does its job.

If I could change one aspect, it would be a door that we could swap the opening direction. For our space, it would work better to have the door open the opposite way.

We purchased online and picked up at the store. After much searching we found the best price at Lowe’s.

When I say it’s been life changing, I mean truly it’s been the most I’ve been able to stay caught up on laundry. Being able to run a load when I leave in the morning and have it ready to fold when I get the kids to bed is so helpful. When we’re changing diapers on our bed and a fountain of urine soaks our sheets, I can throw it all in the wash and come home to clean and dry bedding. When we build our house and move out of the shop, we will for sure have this machine on our closet. It’s been 100% worth the investment!
